Thanks so much! :)

Playing on controller and every time I hit RB, nothing happens but the game freezes and I hear my CPU spinning up. Is something supposed to be happening?

This button saves a high resolution (4X IIRC?) screenshot. Does it freeze for a couple seconds and then resume?

yeah. where is it saving the screenshots?

This depends on your system, but on a Mac running Mojave they currently end up under [username]/Library/Application Support/Default, where Library is a hidden directory.

This is not ideal, I'll admit, but given the game's age we aren't likely to improve the save location anytime soon.

Any idea where they go in Windows 10?

Sorry for the long delay responding! Had to gain access to an old test machine.

I believe you'll find them under: C:\Users\[username]\AppData\LocalLow\Crafted Reveries Limited\Shu_s Garden


Assuming C: is where Windows is installed.


Also, BTW the reason it pauses for so long is that these are actually scaled up 8x. This feature was for internal screenshot-taking purposes and in retrospect should probably not have remained connected to a controller button...

Hey, this game really helped me calm down during all this craziness. I really enjoyed it, thanks!

P.S. If anyone reading this likes the soundtrack like I did, the co-creator/composer uploaded it to Bandcamp! They're some wonderful tunes: https://mrcolin.bandcamp.com/album/shus-garden

So glad it helped! 

how do u start its not working

If you are at the title screen, simply press and hold a button on the controller you want to play with. It takes a couple seconds. 

thanks!

Your game took the "Most Relaxing" spot in our latest video! 

Rad! Thanks!

Same, surprised to see a game as niche as Locoroco get mentioned here.

It's interesting.  I tried all of the characters, not sure if I visited every area or not, but I liked the game.

Thanks!

You're welcome!

There is supposed to be a link on the download page to claim a key, but I don't see it myself RN. Inquiring with the Itch.io peeps and will get back to you.

If you've got this for free you're not getting a Steam key. Please stop asking the same exact thing on every game page you claim for free during a sale.

The first time I played this game it was very cute and lovely.

The game seems to be having major technical issues on win10 with me however. Completely reproducably, the amount of pixellation is increased *each time* I start the game. This pixellation setting seems to be stored somewhere, because after uninstalling and installing again (with any version: 32/64bit itch/steam), the amount of pixellation is just increased again. The game is rendered completely unplayable at this moment..

EDIT: found a solution!

Export the game path (HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crafted Reveries Limited) from your registry  (regedit.exe) and adjust the settings for quality & screen resolution (hex values! so enter the correct values as decimal in the registry editor before exporting):

for my 3000x2000 screen, I run the following resetShusGarden.reg patch file as a workaround before starting the game:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crafted Reveries Limited]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Crafted Reveries Limited\Shu's Garden]
"Screenmanager Resolution Width_h182942802"=dword:00000bb8
"Screenmanager Resolution Height_h2627697771"=dword:000007d0
"UnityGraphicsQuality_h1669003810"=dword:00000005
"Highest Untested Quality Level_h3014762398"=dword:00000005
"Last Quality Level_h1590298036"=dword:00000005

Wow. I'm sorry you ran into such a serious technical problem! Glad you found a work-around, at least, as ATM we don't really have time to go back and patch it further.

WOW. this is very beautiful. nice work :~)

Thanks! Tell your friends :P
