resurrection of the thread, as I don't want to create another one.

BTW: I am working on a Linux system, if it makes any difference

Two questions:
1) I downloaded the demo from the winterwolves website, and bought the full version on desura. Is there a way to transfer the savegames? (does not work automatically)

2) There is a story related item I do not get in the full (desura) version
Spoiler:
sleeping pills in the bathroom
I thnk I need them to get from chapter 1 to chapter 2 (at least in the demo I needed...)
could you please check if there is a bug in the game version on desura?

That's really weird! Even if I think I used different versions (Desura one is 1 year old I think) the savegames should be compatible, and there definitely shouldn't be that bug. To transfer savegames you need to copy the files in the folder:
Windows
%APPDATA%/RenPy/Bionic_Heart
Mac OS X
~/Library/RenPy/Bionic_Heart
Linux/Other
~/.renpy/Bionic_Heart

I think I called the one on Desura with Bionic_Heart_Desura, while the version on my site should be Bionic_Heart-1.0 or something (you can't miss it if you look in that folder though).

Somehow I can find the missing stuff now ... strange ... I feel a bit stupid now ... :oops:

Anyway, thanks for the fast response. Will try out copy the files now.

I think is because you need to do the things in a certain sequence and maybe the second time you forgot some steps :)
