    Hi everyone,
    I successfully installed AOEO Celeste on my USB thumbdrive, with the intent of being able to plug-and-play the game from different computers. The game works and launches without problems on my primary computer, no issues (yet). When I plug the USB into my laptop and attempt to launch, I receive the error message "system cannot find the path specified". I've run GameScan multiple times when the USB drive is plugged into the laptop and the file integrity is fine, so I'm not sure what the issue is.

    Even though I installed AOEO Celeste on my USB thumbdrive (in order to be able to take the game to go), is it possible the game installed or altered files on my primary computer, and is thus 'linked' to the computer? Do I need to have a separate clean install of AOEO Celeste on my laptop as well?

    Much appreciate any insight on this issue.

    Just a shot in the dark, is it coming up as the same drive letter on both computers? Maybe the launcher is saving a config option somewhere with the old drive letter...

    Thanks for the suggestion - unfortunately the USB does show up as the same drive letter, so I don't think that's the issue. :(

    On the computer where it was originally installed, go and get the Spartan folder that's in your documents (think it's about 12MB) and put it on the USB, then put that in the documents of the laptop or any other pc you're playing "on the go", and see if that works.

    Hey, does the doc folder get loaded onto the sad or the removeable drive by default? I wanted to run the game SOLELY from a micro SD and didn't want a trace of it on my device, so just curious if this was the case! Thanks.

    Also, is the K72 folder game related?

    Dunno, never tried running the game off a USB, but I'd think just running a gamescan once you plug it into the pc and start the launcher, would probably flesh out the spartan folder in the documents folder of the pc. I've never heard of that K72 folder lol

    Sorry to not be of much help
