Guide: Setting Up Severed Chains

  1. Go to the Releases page on Github and download the latest Recommended Build of Severed Chains. If you prefer to live on the edge, you can also download the Latest Development Build for up-to-the-minute code.
  2. Extract the zip archive. (note: this build is portable – you can run the platform, play, make save files, and then move the entire directory later with everything preserved.)
  3. Copy your digital disc images into the “isos” folder. The disk images can be ISOs, BINs, or anything else that uses the same format. If you haven’t made legal, digital backups of your game discs yet, now is the time to do so. Here’s a guide.
  4. Run “launch.bat” on Windows, or “launch” on all other platforms. It will download java and then launch Severed Chains. (note: the first launch will take a while as it has to unpack the game assets.)
  5. Enjoy profusely.
