How to Fix the “Failed to Extract” Error in Content Warning:

1. Host a New Lobby

The most effective solution to fix the “failed to extract” error is by backing out and hosting a completely new Content Warning lobby.

2. Preventive Measures

To minimize the chances of encountering this error again, follow these preventive measures:

  • Avoid Spam Recording: Refrain from continuously turning the camera on and off, as this can lead to fragmented footage, filling up the disc and triggering the error.
  • Designate a Single Recorder: Assign one player to handle all recording tasks to prevent multiple recordings, which can expedite disc filling and increases the chance of this error showing up.
  • Turn in Footage Promptly: Ensure that the designated recorder turns in the footage promptly at the end of the session. Passing around the camera among players can contribute to the error by initiating background downloads.

3. Saving Corrupted Footage

Although you cannot turn in existing corrupted footage that triggers the error, you can still save it locally on your computer for personal viewing. Simply press the F3 key while in-game to save the footage locally.

It is worth noting that developers Landfall are aware of this bug and are actively working to resolve it. In the meantime, use the aforementioned preventive measures and save the corrupted footage.

In the meantime, hop on to Steam and enjoy this highly addictive co-op indie game which is currently available for free on Steam until April 3.
