Creatures: The Albian Years is a recompilation of the original Creatures and Creatures 2. Note that, unlike Creatures Village, the two included games are entirely separate in every way other than the CD name. It is however possible to import C1 creatures into C2 using the Nornverter, but it isn't included with the game and needs to be downloaded seperately from AmberCreatures.

Creatures 1 Emergency Kit Cannot Create or Restore Worlds

- Delete the Creatures 1 subfolder. Do not touch the Creatures 2 subfolder.
- Reinstall Albian Years.
- Before you play anything, go into the Creatures 1 folder in My Documents. Copy and rename it something else, like Creatures 1 Backup.
- When you load the game it will load the "Creatures 1" folder under My Documents.

Creatures 2 Genetics Kit Cannot Find the Norn's DNA Data
- Go to My Documents and open the Creatures 2 folder.
- Enter the Genetics folder and copy whichever Norn's DNA you want to view (it should have a serial number which matches the number on the error message you receive).
- Navigate to the installation folder for the game.
- Open the Genetics folder and place the copied file in here.
- Reload Creatures 2. You should now be able to view the DNA of whichever Gene files you copied over.
