just curious but what was the update for this today for?  is it a necessary update?

(+1)

It fixed some issues people had with the overall game since we changed the way Android versions were installed. If you're having no problems, you don't need to worry about it!

okay now that Derek his DLC is out are there any new names added?

The Derek DLC doesn't add any new names.

It works!

i followed the instructions for installing the voiced dlc on windows but when i open the game and click on the dlc section on the main menu it tells me that the voiced dlc isn't installe

same

So, I downloaded the game to use on android and installed it, making sure to close it before adding the voiced names dlc.

Got the rpa, went to my file manager, Android, Data

And that's it-

There's no subfolders within there.

I don't think I can add the dlc if the game folder doesn't somehow exist...


If it somehow matters, running Android 12 One UI 4.1 on Samsung Galaxy S10 Ultra 5G

So apparently I can't access the contents of this folder using samsung's own file browser, *despite* enabling the option to see hidden system files

Using amaze file browser helped me get around this

is there anywhere else i can download it? because i keep clicking install and it just downloads an empty folder with no rpa file inside.

Genuinely sweet and well-crafted game! Cove is so sweet and interesting so I was delighted to see how he grew as the game progressed. I haven't played any of the DLCs yet but I definitely will be coming back to see those eventually. Got me way more emotional than I thought it would too, some really good stuff in here about change and growing up. So good!

HI! Need help.....Love this game and have to for my PC and i download it for my samsung S+10....So it may be because english is not my 1st language or because i'm a idiot...but i'm not sure how to add the DLC on my phone....So again help?...please?...Have read the instruction but i can't....TwT

Hello! I absolutely adore this game with my whole heart but I've recently had an issue where I still hear the music but no voices anymore :( I downloaded voiced name DLC and it was working fine. I went to bed and the next day no one's talking to me! (Still and incredible game either way but everyone's voice is so nice I'd love some help on fixing this pretty please :)

Hello, I had a question on how to do the following instructions on how to play this game on Android, but both me or my step dad (who is a technician) can't figure out what the introductions are tell us to do. Like what rpa file do I download and how do I move on from there as there is no where that I've seen shows where I'd get a file that has a rpa indexation. Like I downloaded the android version like it said and when the instructions said to download a rpa file and seeing the one I downloaded had a different thing in it's name I was thrown into a loop as to what that file was or where it was. Like is it a whole other thing or is it a file within this website? 

I would love to play it on mobile as it's one of my favorite, so I'd like to understand how to do so. Please and thank for your time

The rpa, or rpy if you had the older version, is downloaded on this page. Then you just put it in the "game" folder of Our Life. If you're having trouble getting the file to download, maybe your Android doesn't trust the file. If you're having trouble knowing how to add the file to the game, there's a more detailed guide posted in the past by omniastarr-

These steps worked for me and at least one other user on here (I have a samsung s10. Also, I know there are a lot of steps, but it took me less than 5 minutes):

1. Download the base game from itch.io (this is an .apk file) 

2. Download the DLC(s) you purchased (these are .rpa files) 

3. Download and install Amaze File Manager from the Play Store 

4. Install the base game by clicking on the .apk file and following the prompts to install 

5. Open the Amaze app and follow the prompts to allow access to your files, as well as grant "All files access" (clicking Grant will take you to the Settings location, but you'll have to find Amaze in the list, click on its name, and toggle "Allow access to all files" on) 

6. Once that setting is toggled on, go back to Amaze and find your Downloads folder there. Inside should be all your .rpa files. 

7. Long press on the first .rpa file you want to install and then click on the rest. All of them should be highlighted before the next step. 

8. Once highlighted, click on the copy button (an icon of two rectangles in front of each other) at the top of the app 

9. Navigate to your Android folder within the Amaze app, then the data folder inside of it. You might have to allow another access prompt here. 

10. Scroll down to the "ourlife.demo.apk" file and click on it, then the "files" file inside. 

11. At the top of the app, there should be a new folder button (picture of a folder with a +). Click that and make a new folder called "game". 

12. Click on the "game" folder, and then click the "Use This Folder" button at the bottom of the app. You will again need to grant access through a prompt. 

13. Finally, click the "Paste" button at the bottom of the app, and you should be all set! Open the Our Life app, and enjoy getting married to the best crybaby!!!

YOU ARE A GODSEND. THANK YOU SM

Thanks for the help but I did have trouble understanding if I had to paste the copy files into the data file and if so then there might be a problem as I get an error when trying to do so sadly. And I when I look back I don't see the file at all in the data files. So I'm just a bit confused about that step, I think it was step 9 to 10. But if this is error is just because of my phone then that sucks butt but thank you for helping 👍🏼

I need help moving the voiced name to the game file on my mobile phone please 🙏

Need help i download the dlc voiced but i cant open it and i don't know how to add it to the game

Does anyone know what devices the DCL's work on?

(+1)

i installed the dlc correctly, but my name is not :(



Can someone help? I'm new to Linux and I don't know how to add dlcs. Ive got the Linux itch.io app if that helps.

For some reason, the file is in the folder but it isn't showed up as DLC downloaded in the app.

- I've relaunched the app

- I've restarted my device

- I've downloaded from the site

- Android version 12, our life version 1.5.1

I need a bit of help here, what am I doing wrong here?

(1 edit)

hellooo i downloaded the one for windows and i went into the game folder but i don't really understand what to do from there. can someone with windows guide me through what to do? do i need to purchase something?

this is my first time downloading a game like this and i dont know what DLC means or anything lol

pls help :')

You don't need to purchase the Voiced Name DLC. You just take the .rpa file downloaded from this page and put it into the Our Life "game folder" that you get from the main Our Life: Beginnings and Always page! Also, don't use the Itch app to download the DLC, that doesn't seem to work for people. It's best to download directly from the website.

(1 edit)

hi! Sorry for the inconvenience but I dont know if its just my phone being dumb or something, but it won't let me edit the game files to add in the dlcs- every time i tap the file it asks if i want to open the app, even when i have the dlcs copied and ready to move. I have a galaxy note 10 if that helps with anything, and i also want to add i've downloaded multiple types of file managers/apk editors and nothing worked- i'm not very savvy when it comes to this sort of thing, though, so I may be just doing something wrong? 

Here's a guide from omniastarr that might help!

I was alerted to updates to both the base game and all the dlc, so I set them to download, only for all the expansions (Step 1, 2, and 3, and Voiced name) to fail with the message: 

"An error occurred during installation No manager for installer unknown"

Can someone please help? I've got no idea what this means, or what to do.


Are you downloading from the app? That's been having problems and downloading directly from the site seems to work better.

Yeah, I was. I got it working now though. :)

For those facing problems, my experience was that the base game worked fine in the app, but downloading the dlcs in the app made it freak out. Downloading them through the website and then installing them in the base game's file worked, but then even the base game wouldn't run. So I uninstalled it, then reinstalled (still in the app), checked all the files were where they needed to be, and lo and behold, it works. Yay \0v0/

Thank you very much for letting me know how it worked out for you! I'm glad you got them added.

Quick question does this game work on windows 7? cuz thats the pc im usuin

yup ofc!!

hey who's your pfp? looks really cool!

(1 edit)

it's Hu Tao from genshin impact but male version :)!

I extracted the rpy files and the voices. The game has all the extra names, yet when I click on one of them it has this error screen. I tried to quit the game and play again, but it still has the same error as before. I don't really know what the problem is.

But don't worry! I won't quit playing the game even if it has a minor issue. The game is great overall, even without the extra names :)) .

I'm sorry you're having trouble. Can you give me a screenshot of your game folder? The error is saying the name file isn't there so something about where the names were put seems to be off.

Here's the game folder.

Do you know where the "voices" folder from the expansion pack is? I see you added the rpys, which unlock the screen, but I can't see the folder that includes all the voiced name sound files. Maybe you missed copying it over?

(3 edits)

I copied and pasted the contents of it.
The cove_step1-3 are the voice folders.
Do I need to extract the whole voice folder? (the one with the blue highlight)

Umm...may I ask where is the game folder?

It depends on your device.

Windows:

Mac:


um..my window's folder is not like this

You take the files from the voiced name pack and put them into the game folder for Our Life. There isn't a game folder in the voiced name pack itself.

I don't know how else to explain it, but this game is an emotional roller coaster. I love it. I wish more games were like this allowing for many endings and not one cookie cutter ending regardless of choices. 

So I have a new pc now, so I lost my save file anyway I love the game so I take my time and then I was ready to play the game again. Only 10 minutes past in the first step and the game close with this error. I try erase my dlcs and only run the game, then put the voice dlc if that was but dont work. Please I will love the help, this is the text that show up :

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.

My voice named is an option however I don't hear Cove saying it throughout the game. The name is present in text however I can't hear it. Is there anything I can do to fix that?

It's possible the files aren't in the right spot. Can you take a screenshot of your folder? Though, the name is only said about once per event. It doesn't happen all the time, so it's also possible you didn't hit the points where it happened. 

It's not working for me :(

I just forgot to paste the voice folder inside, it works now

(+1)

are requests still be taken for names that we want to be added to the list?

I'm afraid not! Maybe someday we'll add more, but there's no way to get your name added currently. 

It's not for Android 😭

The Android version is on the main page! Just download Our Life (Android, Voiced Name Version)

Hello!! So, I've been playing this game for a few months and I love it! When I saw there was a voiced name DLC, I downloaded it immediately. However, even when I followed all of the download instructions perfectly (several times over, downloading and redownloading both the game and DLC), I cannot hear any of the names on the selection screen or in-game. Is there any way I'm still doing something wrong? I'm on MacOS, if that helps. Thanks ^^

(+1)

Can you tell me where the files are in your version? It should look something like this, but with the voiced name folder instead of the DLC folder.

Sorry I'm a moment late, but here you go!

(+1)

Can you take everything in the "Voiced Name DLC" folder out of that folder and put it directly in the "game" folder? You can just delete the empty "Voiced Name DLC" folder. All that's needed are the actual files in the game folder.

(+1)

That was the solution! Thanks so so much ^^

(+2)

That's wonderful!

(+1)

So I really want this game but when I pick download it says stuff like this can hurt my phone... is it save to download?

(+1)

naw it wont do anything, your device is probably being extra precautious 

So I downloaded the game plus bought all the DLCs. How will I know if the DLCs actually worked? Is there an option that shows that they have been added to the game?

(1 edit) (+1)

If the DLC is unlocked there will be 10 Moments available on the Moment Select screen rather than five. If you see the Moments are still locked you can save the game, close it out, make sure they DLC files are the right spot, and then reload the game. The extra scenes will become available in all save files once the DLC content is set in the game folder, so you won't have to restart or anything if there was a problem at first.

I downloaded, unzipped and installed the files as instructed, but I only get a handful of names under each alphabet tab - it's never more than seven or eight names, and the full list never appears despite the files all being present in the voices folders.  Could there be something I've done wrong?

I'm sorry I missed this comment! It's possible the display isn't showing you the scroll bar. There should be a way to go down the page to reveal more names. Can you share a screenshot of what your voiced name looks like?

It's my turn to apologize, I got the email and meant to get to this and wasn't able to right away, I am sorry as well!  Thank you for getting back to me!  I checked and the scroll bar does not allow me to interact with it at all.  Here is the requested screenshot.

I see. That's the old version of the screen. It seems you need to update part of your game build. Either re-downloading the base game itself, getting the newest version of one or all of the DLCs, starting a fresh file instead of loading a save, or all of that. Can you try that to see if it works?

My laptop died and I had to get a new one, so I had to do a reinstall of the game - this worked perfectly, I needed the new version of the game.  Thank you so much and again, apologies for the length of time between my replies.   It is such a great game with so much thought put into it!!  Will enjoy starting over with a new save. :)

That's great :D

AMO este juego, pero me gustaría que le sacaran una versión en español :(

(+1)

I'm not sure if I've done something wrong or not. I have the options to use the voiced names but no one ever actually says them

(+1)

Can you hear them on the screen or is it silent there too? And what device are you using? The only character who says the name is Cove and he only does it sometimes, like once per Moment rather than all the time, so it's possible the names are working and you just haven't gotten one of the times where it's said in-game. But if you don't hear them on the screen either that generally means the DLC files aren't in the right spot.

(+1)

I'm playing on PC! I can see the voiced name being said, but it isn't spoken aloud. The only thing I can think of is that I originally started a file with Jamie and then got the voice DLC right before step 2. I did exit out of the game while doing this, but maybe because I already had a save file it doesn't update? I heard him say Jamie in step one but ever since I haven't heard him say the name (I picked Skye if it matters). I'm currently on step 3. Once I finish and start a new save I'll see if that fixes it.


Just so I make sure I did it right though, I just need to copy and paste voice_name_dlc.rpy and voice_name_dlc.rpyc, not go into the voice folder and manually copy/paste all of the names?

(+3)

Thanks for the details. You do need to copy/paste or move over those rpys, but you also need the voices folder. You don't have to copy every name file individually, you can copy or simply move the entire voices folder into the game folder of your Our Life build. I hope that helps!

(+1)

That was absolutely what I was missing!! Thank you so much, I didn't even think of copying the voices folder but in hindsight it's pretty obvious that I would need to do so, lol.

(+2)

No problem. I'm happy it worked out in the end!

(1 edit) (+2)

Hi! I'm having some trouble with the voice dlc :( 

I recently had to erase my macbook and download everything again-- including Our Life and all the dlcs!-- and the voices aren't working this time around? the voices folder is in the game folder, i've tried moving the voice rpy files in and out of the voices folder, and nothing seems to work but Jamie?

pls help!

(+1)

I'm sorry you're having trouble. It sounds like there is something out of place, but I'm not sure what. Removing all the voiced DLC stuff and starting again might be worth doing. Sometimes just trying to following the steps again goes better because whatever went wrong the first time doesn't end up happening the next time.

(+1)

hi gbpatch !! i adore this game with all i am. however, the voiced name portion isn't working for me. i followed the install steps and made sure to select my name in the voiced name part too, but i've played almost to the end of step 3 now and cove hasn't said my name at all :( am i missing a step?

Can you hear the name on the screen itself but not in the game? Or do you not hear the name even when you select the name on the screen? You may have to turn up the voice volume from the config screen. It is possible something is out of place or missing when you tried to install it, but I wouldn't know what it is. Sometimes just trying to following the steps again goes better because whatever went wrong the first time doesn't end up happening the next time.

(+1)

so I seem to have a problem with the voice dlc idk if its because I missed a step but when I put in the files I cant seem to even open the game the application just turns into a normal icon idk what I did wrong. 

(1 edit) (+1)

i might try to do this on steam to see if it works there

I'm sorry I missed this! If you still need help, let me know.

nope! I got the steam version instead and the dlc worked there but thx!

I'm happy to hear you were able to get it there, at least. Sorry for the trouble.

Will there ever be a NSFW DLC/extra game at any point?

There will be a NSFW Patreon Bonus Moment, but that's extra content. The main game will always be safe for teens with nothing 18+.

That's understandable. :) I just finished my playthrough of it and I LOVED it! Sadly I don't know if the voice patch thing did anything different. I put it where I think it said to in the right place, but it never had my name voiced or anything. Still a good game though! Super heartwarming.

I'm happy you liked it ^^. If you couldn't hear it, sometimes you've gotta turn the voice volume higher and the music lower. The name line also doesn't play every time Cove says the MC's name, only occasionally. And did you choose the name from the screen or type in the letters of name that is an option? Typing it in won't set the voice. You've gotta go through the voiced name screen itself and pick it out from there. I hope that's helpful.

I'm really excited to play this game! I just bought the two DLCS on Stream. I was wondering if the voiced name feature is already embedded when you download the game on Stream instead of here?

(+1)

Hello! You can add the voiced names through a free DLC on Steam. It's not included automatically 'cause it's kind of a big add-on that not everyone might want.
