Here is a simple tutorial on how to remove the doll’s curse at the Witch’s house.
The Stardew Valley has a curse, when you “get rid” of your kids by turning them into pigeons, and watch TV on the 26th of Autumn (Eve of Spirit Day) there will appear a “channel” with the name “???” (you can also receive strange calls, if you have a phone in your house), if you watch, a message will appear saying that you “released something and brought” that “to you), after that a Strange Doll will be attached to the your inventory for the rest of the day, and after that, whenever you enter the Witch’s hut you will have a number of dolls relative to how many children you “got rid” of, they will attack you and when defeated they will see a black bird (a crow?) .
Anyway, the problem in question is that even if you end up with all the dolls, whenever you leave and return to the Witch’s hut they will appear again.
And for those who want to solve this, it is very simple just follow the steps below:
1 – Locate your Save:
Save from Stardew Valley really stores all the information about the game, such as the name of your dog, horse and so on.
Open Windows “Search” and type “% AppData%” and hit “Enter”.
Then find the folder “StardewValley / Saves” and enter the folder “Save Cursed”.
There you will have two files with your character’s name, one “normal” and the other with “_old” (which is the backup of the previous day of your game).
For that we will need the “Save Normal” (without “_old”).
ATTENTION: BACKUP YOUR SAVE, APPARENTLY THERE ARE NO REASONS TO CORRUPT YOUR GAME, BUT IT IS BETTER TO DO THIS FOR SAFETY.
2 – Removing the curse:
Right-click on your save and go to “Open with” and select the “Notepad” or text editor you use.
After open press “CTRL + F” and paste this: <string> cursed_doll </string>
The editor will find that line, and all you have to do is remove it and save the file.
There, the curse is removed from your save. End of discussion!
