How to install the patch manually (for Windows, Linux, and Mac)

Hint

Newer graphics patches requires an extraction software compatible with .7z.

On Windows or Linux (any distro):

  1. Find and open your game folder
    • On Steam: open your Steam library, choose the game from the list, right click on it and click on Properties. Switch to the LOCAL FILES tab and click on Browse local files...)
  2. After downloading all the files needed for your version of the game, place them in the root folder (where the game .exe is)
  3. Navigate inside HigurashiEp0*_Data/StreamingAssets (where * is the chapter number) and delete the folders CG and CGAlt
    • This is not a requirement but we recommend to delete the mentioned folders to save disk space and avoid any random issues
  4. Select all the downloaded files placed in the root directory EXCEPT the file called [CHAPTER TITLE].Voice.and.Graphics.Patch.[VERSION NUMBER].zip and extract them (protip: use Extract Here from the context menu)
    • Extract the mentioned file after extracting all the others. Overwrite all files if asked
  5. Delete all the downloaded files after ensuring the game is working as expected
