Title says it all. It is notable that this happened after I moved my Cave Story file through Google Drive to my new computer (Windows 7 Laptop to Windows 10 2-in-1 laptop). The new computer can run the downloadable Cave Story file just fine but it won't run my old one. And I need this with the save state because I am doing a current walkthrough of the game on my YouTube.

A picture of the error :

^ This is the error. Japanese text with a black screen surrounding. After I hit OK it closes. Anyone know the solution?

The error.log is :

You probably forgot to copy the data folder.

Yeah that error log is basically saying "I can't find/load these files" (looks like almost all of them), so check that you copied over the data folder.

Thanks. This works!

I am pretty sure the data file is there. Maybe Google Drive just corrupted it?

Aka something is wrong with the game sprites

well, I have seen this error message many times when downloading mods, etc. So it's good that I know what that translates over to now.

Thank you all for the support! :D
