Some of you might have noticed already that the editor is sometimes not working when you freshly installed OpenClonk 8.0. When you have played one of the development snapshots before, you've probably seen it working. The reason it's not working in the release (at least when you didn't apply this quick fix for it) is the missing "platforms" folder that contains some libraries (or DLL files as you might call them) that are needed for the editor to work. So, to fix this issue without having to wait for the 8.1 Bugfix release you can do the following:

1. We need the platforms folder from the latest snapshot. You can find them here:

2. Make sure to pick the right version (32 or 64 bit). You need to choose the same one as you have installed. So, having the 64 bit version installed, you need the 64 bit snapshot. The "platforms" folder from the 32 bit version will not work in this case and vice versa.

3. Download it and unzip the snapshot somewhere on your computer (you could just unzip it in a new folder on your desktop. This can be deleted afterwards. I also recommend not to unzip the file directly on your desktop as you have to clean up the mess on your desktop afterwards.)

4. When unzipped, copy the "platforms" folder to your OpenClonk game folder where you have installed it (if you didn't change the installation path, it is "C:\Program Files\OpenClonk" or "C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenClonk" depending on the version you chose and the system you have).

5. The unzipped snapshot folder can be deleted now if you don't want to keep it anymore.

Now the editor should be working. If it doesn't, check if you chose the right version and make sure you copied it into the correct folder. And as mentioned above, in 8.1 this should be fixed. There is also a bug report in the bugtracker already, which you can find here: so you can see if we already fixed that.
