This is for people still running the old buzz version (for example the massive pack from buzzmachines.com). It is recommended that you do NOT install the new version over the old one. If you absolutely must do so, you have to delete a few things like old overloader etc. The recommended way to install the new builds to a new folder and copy your essential gear over to the new folder. Do not copy things like the old overloader to the new directory. This is a good time to start fresh and to think about which machines you REALLY need. Be sure to read the [[Essential Machines]] and [[Machine_blacklist]] pages. Do not use old tricks with new Buzz, like running in compatibility mode, using the fixkit etc., these tips are obsolete. If Buzz doesn't start, most likely something from an old installation is in the directory (such as old overloader).
