Just a warning to everyone - the build 17 installer seems to overwrite the datafile from build 16, so you lose both your game progress, and any holds in development. At least I did (lucky I exported my hold)...

It most definitely does. I was lucky that I'd exported my player in order to test the import/export bug.

By the way, build 17 still doesn't allow importing on a windows system - could someone fix the "no non-alphanumerical characters in directory names" bug before releasing the next build?

I'm sorry I guess I should have warned you guys better. There is a new screen in the installer with text on it that you should read. Uncheck the box that installs all files if you are just upgrading from a previous build.

The installer is going to be different in the future.

Yeah, the import dialog should be fixed for build 18.
