Solution to Launch Problems!

Hiya guys.

So while preparing Snares of Ruin Zero for release, I've managed to find out what's going on with launch problems that some people have been experiencing.

As I mentioned in some discussion threads before, there is a third party program called Node js (Nwjs) that is required as a launcher for this game (and other more recent games of mine: Pegasus-5, Snares of Ruin, Renegade Grounds, and will also be for Snares of Ruin Zero). This program together with one of the plugins is required for integration of Steam achievements. Unfortunately from what I've been testing today, the newer versions of Node js give a lot of problems and often don't trigger achievements (possibly due to conflicts with other plugins). So, as of right now, staying with version 22.3 of Node js is the best bet to make sure achievements still trigger.

However, if the computer has used a newer version of Node js for running of other games, then it could cause launch problems of games that used older version of Node js. There is a handy fix that can allow you to stop this from happening.

You have to go to the following folder:

C:\Users\(your username here)\AppData\Local\KADOKAWA\RPGMV\UserData\Default

And then scroll all the way down and locate two files:
"Web Data" and "Web Data-journal", and DELETE them.

This will stop the override and will allow your computer to run games that use any version of Node js that's older than the whichever is the newest version you used.

If you happen to run a game later that uses a newer version of Node js, then you might have to do this fix again as the "Web Data" and "Web Data-journal" files will reappear and constantly auto-update based on what version of Node js you've been using.

Just a note - AppData folder is normally hidden on your computer, so you'll first have to 'show hidden folders' from your computer's Control Panel.

I hope this helps, and please feel free to ask any questions if you're still stuck.
The alternative solution that was mentioned before is to launch the game via Firefox browser (by going into game folders and launching it through the file called 'index').

About This Game


  • Follow an intense and thrill-inducing sci-fi story set in outer space!
  • Choices matter – The choices you make have an impact on events in the story, how other characters feel about you, and who survives in the end.
  • Relationship building – What you choose to say or to do will cause you to win or lose reputation with your fellow crewmates.
  • Romance – A chance to develop a romantic connection with the female crew members.
  • Skills Specialisation – Your Medicine, Engineering, Athletics, and Charisma attributes will open up some new dialogue options and interactions with the world, but you will need to decide which of them to specialise in or whether to simply be a jack of all trades.
  • Morale is your currency – Making progress and winning trust will increase your morale, which is required for completion of the more technical and challenging tasks.


You are Edan Vargas, a new member aboard Pegasus-5 Trade Ship. The ship is set to make a pretty standard trade route with only a small detour to sell a special rare item. However, before long after departure, the crew wakes up to discover that many of the ship’s systems have been compromised and they are lost in space, unable to establish exactly where they are and how far they’ve gone off the course. Who aboard is responsible for this and why?

As the new guy aboard, you’ll have to build trust with your crewmates and develop friendships with them, for their loyalty can be very invaluable in what you are going to face. You may even build romantic relationships with some of them!

The journey ahead will be a harrowing one. You will make stops in unfamiliar locations, tackle environmental hazards, and get hunted by organized gangs operating in space. Apart from your crewmates, you also have your unique talents to help you out, and you will need to decide which of those talents to specialise in if you are to get through this in one piece. Your choices will affect how your teammates feel about you, how certain events will develop, and even who survives at the end!

Good luck, brave adventurer, and godspeed, for you will need it!
