How To Install

1. Replace the game files

  • Unzip the contents of the House_Haunted zip file into the directory below:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\House\

  • (or, if you are confused on how to do this, drag all the contents from the unzipped folder into this directory so that it prompts you to replace ~400 files)

2. Backup your save file (OPTIONAL)

  • Navigate to C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME HERE\AppData\Roaming\Stencyl\House\

  • Rename the file mySave.sol to mySave_backup.sol

  • Now when you restart the game, a new blank save will be generated. If you wish to revert to your old save file, simply delete the new mySave.sol file from that directory and rename the backup file back to mySave.sol

  • ALTERNATIVELY, if you do not wish to back up your save before playing, simply reset your progress using the ingame menu.

3. Play!
