If your question is not already answered, please do the following:

  1. Please fill in the below template and copy and paste it into our Discord Server
    in the #higu_support or #umi_support channel, after accepting the rules
    (You can also submit via Github Issues, see bottom of page)

    Getting Installer Log Files

    Finding the install log

    You can use any of the methods below to get your log file.

    Option 1: In your browser downloads after an install

    The installer automatically downloads .zip file containing your logs after an install finishes (or fails). Just check your recent browser downloads for a

    Option 2: "Click here to download the Install Logs" button in the installer

    After choosing any game in the installer, there will be a "📖 Click here to download the Install Logs" link near the bottom of the page. This link will download the logs as a to your browser downloads.

    Option 3: From the install launcher (Windows Only)

    • Open the install launcher
    • Click the ⯈ Advanced Tools expander
    • Click the Show Installer Logs button. An explorer window will appear containing the log files.
    • Send us the *.txt files by zipping all of them, or dragging them into Discord

    your install logs would be located at:


    Linux and Mac

    Look directly in the install_data\INSTALLER_LOGS folder, as Linux and Mac do not have a launcher.

    Option 5: From the game folder

    The installer will also attempt to save a log to the game being modded. Use this method if you have moved or deleted the installer launcher, or if you want to check the log for a specific game.


    • For Umineko: The log will be placed directly in the game folder. Example:
    • For Higurashi: In the HigurashiEp0[X]_Data subfolder (where X is the chapter number). This is the same location as the game logs. Example:
      C:\games\Steam\steamapps\common\Higurashi When They Cry\HigurashiEp01_Data\MOD-INSTALLER-LOG-[date].txt

    Linux and Mac

    The installer may not always be able to place a log in the game folder, but you can check anyway. Look for a MOD-INSTALLER-LOG-[date].txt file in the game folder, or inside the HigurashiEp0[X]_Data subfolder.

Submitting via Github Issues

If you don't want to use Discord, you can submit to the appropriate Github Issues page. We prefer Github for complicated bug reports and feature requests so we can keep track of them easier.

If you're unfamiliar with Github, this handy guide will teach you how to create a Github issue. Note that a Github Account is required to submit issues.
