Save file location

Post by danneely » Tue Aug 15, 2017 3:54 pm

I want to copy my current games save to my laptop so I can continue playing while away from home, but can't find where the files are saved at.

In the installation directory there's a "game" folder, inside it there should be a saves folder with all the savegames numbered by page/slot :)

*GROAN*

The only thing I hate more than developers who're acting like the last 4 versions of windows never happened are those who do that and then default the installer path to Program Files. Nothing under there has been writable by user mode applications since Vista came out. Which means that to find the files is going to take a snipe hunt into the dark underbelly of the don't break windozexp crapplications subsystem to figure out WTF the files actually are located at.

This is why you never install to default directories or to window's system folders ;)

Aside from the minor fact that C:\Program Files (x86)\Winter Wolves\Seasons Of The Wolf was the default you mean?

Had it defaulted elsewhere, I'd've dumped it in the C:\ProgramFails\ cesspit along with other assorted penguin droppings and other pieces of crap written by oblivious and/or actively hostile duhvelopers.

I use innosetup with default installation parameters, what should have been the "right" default path then? sorry but I don't understand what it should be?
Anyway Ren'Py by default also stores the saves on another folder, see here: http://www.winterwolves.net/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=2971
