A list of changes that may require you to update your game can be found at:
When first asked to edit a file, the Ren'Py launcher will prompt you to download and install an editor. As this may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, the editors can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the editor archive to the Ren'Py directory.
When building an Android package, the Ren'Py launcher will prompt you to download and install RAPT, the Ren'Py Android Packaging Tool. As this may fail if your Internet connection is unreliable, the editors can be downloaded separately. To install, extract the contents of the archive to the Ren'Py directory. (Place the "rapt" directory into the "renpy-6.18.3" directory.)
