This is a browseable representation of Oni's file hierarchy under Windows and the Mac OS. 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, and in Mac OS X it is /Applications/Oni.

For 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 OS's handling of the game's installation. This does not apply to Oni: AE that is installed on Vista.

About the icons
Aqua Dot-Red.png = needed to run Oni (created while installing); Aqua Dot-Yellow.png = created while running Oni; Aqua Dot-Blue.png = less-important files.

Not all Oni players may see all the files in this list; if they are marked with yellow, Oni may not have seen a need to create them (read about that file for more info); if they are blue, then don't even worry about them if they're missing.

This list is not exhaustive. Screenshots and "films" are dumped to this folder, with generic filenames. Also, a variety of debugging/authoring information can be dumped on demand, either from scripts or the Dev Mode console.
