This is a browseable representation of Oni's file hierarchy under Windows and macOS. You can use it to verify that you have all the needed files; it can also educate you on the details of what each file does, or how Oni finds its game data. Click on a folder's name to go down to that level of the hierarchy; click on a file's name to read more about that file.

The default location for this folder in Windows is C:\Program Files\Oni; there is no default location on Macs because modern Macs cannot run the installer on the CD-ROM, and so the user must drag the "Oni ƒ" folder manually to his hard drive.

In Windows Vista, four files - persist.dat, debugger.txt, key_config.txt & startup.txt are instead located at C:\Users\*your username*\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Oni by virtue of the OS's handling of the game's installation. This does not apply to an installation of the AE in Vista.

Your initial Oni installation will probably have all the red and blue files. For files marked with yellow, Oni may not have seen a need to create them yet (follow that file name's link for more info).
