After this action, you can see next to the Core Keeper in your favorites will say “experimental”, which means you are now on at the experimental version of the game.
If you try to load in, you’re not going to have access to anything, when it comes to characters and worlds and stuff.
All that you need next is to go to your “Search bar”, then go to “This PC”. You’re going to have your different devices and hard drives.
Go to “C” where your windows is installed, and then open “Users”.
Then open your user folder. Now, what you’re looking for is “app data”. You may not have it, but you could easily type it in the search bar. The new window LocalLow will open that will bring you to your games.
Click on Pugstorm, then open Core Keeper folder.
On this window, you’re going to see the file “experimental”, if you have already switched to experimental and Steam folder. Click on Steam.
On the next window, there will be a folder with numbers, where are located all the data you have been playing. It is the original one, not the experimental, where are all your backups, saves, world info and everything.
Next what you have to do is to copy this folder, and paste it onto your desktop just to keep it safe.
Now, go back to Core Keeper folder, and open “experimental”, and then open “Steam” again.
Now, this is where you have to paste the folder that you copy earlier on your desktop. But before you do it, you will have the same folder with the same number there already.
On the second folder, you just have to rename and type “.old” at the end.
