I’m in the midst of working (aka dying) my way through Elvira. Yesterday I made my way outside the castle for the first time.
The battles can be so strange and hard to master. But I do feel like I’m getting better. That being said, the fear of taking damage has trained me to save my game before opening any doors, or even walk very far as I learn my way around.
The game was actually challenging to install to hard drive
, but I did manage to get that working. And then, last night, while trying to save after finding lots of things (that I hope I need - no idea, I grabbed everything that wasn’t bolted down) I got a disk error! It made no sense to me at all. I ultimately had to quit the game and restart. Thankfully I’d saved before picking everything up, so I hadn’t lost much.
Then I fired up DOpus and went to the Elvira install. For some reason, all of the new files I tried to create were completely blank. I could see the file names I’d created, but there was no data. They weren’t zero bytes, the size was just blank!
So, chalk that up as a weird one. Glad I hadn’t lost too much of my game.

I thought, “That can’t be good.”
Suddenly the bird launched off his arm. I watched helplessly as the bird went full-screen, and then...
