Hey can anyone tell me what to do - this worked and I can get into the game and all...but once I get in there, all the stuff is missing - all the music files, video files, etc. that you can put into your movie aren't there. All the rooms only have the "Stuff I Made" button, and none of the other category buttons. I can see all those files in the files that I extracted; how come they're not showing up in the game?
