Okay, so all but my Wind Fortress recordings in CS+ have recently become horrifically unsynced.
It's true that I have been significantly editing CS+ recently, but it isn't something that should interfere with all the challenges.

So what can I do...?

You might have to define what these edits were and what you are using to record.

The edits are entirely confidential, and should not afflict all recordings.
All the recordings use CS+'s build in record feature. > .>

Have you at least tried it with a clean copy?

Steam or DRM-free? PC, Mac, or Linux?

IIRC the Cave Story+ recording/playback feature on Steam is a bit broken. I think it helps if you do every run fresh (i.e. without dying and then retrying).

I don't think it's working on any PC build that's publicly released, actually (or Linux/Mac for that matter, if that's what you're going to ask next).

I don't think the MAC and Linux version work at all to begin with.

You are correct, to my knowdlege NiCALiS still hasn't fucking edited the one line of code to find the data folder in OSX after about like 5 years now.

And what line would that be?

This is like the 5th time I've explained this here:

Basically in a OSX major update (I think Yosemite? or maybe earlier) they changed how relative filepaths work, and the entire game (both DRM and Steam) broke because it's looking for the data folder in the wrong location.

Instead of in the steam folder, it's just searching the Mac equivalent for the base C:/ drive that only admins have access to, and the way to fix it is to either move the folder to this location alongside system directories, or use a fan-patch in the steam discussions that corrects the broken pointer.

You can see why people are tired of NiCALiS's new announcements when these literally-the-game-won't-even-start problems exist.

You're acting as if this isn't the kind of reaction I show whenever NICALiS releases new shit as well. I say shit because inevitably there'll be something wrong with it.
I think that NICALiS' willing blindness hasn't been criticised enough, especially (publicly) by Pixel; and I think it's about time he revokes their licence to use the game.

I thought NICALiS bought Cave Story at this point.

I don't think so.
Anyway, more related to the thread: some of these exact same recordings used to work, and all recordings I replayed/recorded worked up until very recently. Thus I believe that this is a problem with the playback system caused by some other means.
