When the Alpha 9 came out the other day I tried a clean install with the Humble Bundle version, I used the Stonehearth Installer.
I’m unable to change the directory it installs to, I can type a different location but the game will still install into C:\Program Files (x86) no matter what I put in the install destination.
I also had several “saved games” that were NOT mine listed, they would not load but were listed there somehow, so being the logical person that I am I went into my control panel to see if Stonehearth was listed and I find there were 3 Stonehearths listed but no were could I find them, I removed ALL instances of Stonehearth I could find in the control panel and re-installed again and again I have saved games that should not be anywhere on my machine.
So I believe there is a registry entry maybe that is messing with the clean installation of the game? Makes it really hard to get a “clean” install when the game is sneaking installations bits somewhere else I can’t find.
I also tried a manual install with the Humble Bundle ZIP file, same thing happened, had saved games that were not mine listed.
