I will try to make this as concise as possible.
I was participating in the alpha and have switched back and forth between the alpha and live versions a couple of times in the last few weeks.
This morning, I switched back to live to look at something.
When I attempted to switch back to the alpha I found that I was no longer able to update the game to the alpha version. I asked around on the ONI discord and apparently the alpha ended this morning.
That would be fine, except now I'm unable to play the game at all.
I start the game and then, whether I select New Game or Load Game, I get a "black hole" error.
Specifically, the error that seems to be occurring is "Assert failed: subworlds/barren/LargeChasmStart (subworld) referenced a missing biome named biomes/Forest/Chasm"
I've uninstalled/reinstalled the game at this point and the error is still persisting.
I also deleted all my save files (don't worry, I've been committing them my repo in github since January) and that didn't help at all.
I was able to report the crash within the game but I'm not sure what else I can do at this point.
Presumably this will all be fixed when I'm able to purchase and download the DLC tomorrow.
- Participate in the alpha.
- Revert to the live version of the game around the same time that the alpha closes.
- Attempt to play the game.
