Title: Transferring saved games
Post by: CraigStern on May 12, 2010, 05:00:54 AM
Find your saved game files on your hard drive, copy them, and then paste them into the new folder Flash will create when you play the downloadable demo. Here is how you do it, step by step:

Step 1: Find your saved games

Games are all saved as .sol files.

To find your files in Windows, do the following:


Quote from: Ertxiem
in Ubuntu (a Linux distribution) the save game is located on:
user home folder/.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/[letters and numbers]/www.sinisterdesign.net/TRPG3.swf
I assume that, since Mac is Unix, the location is similar to the above one.

Step 2: Start a new game and save it



Step 3: Bring over your old saves

For some reason I can't seem to find the AppData folder.

Do you have Windows set to Show Hidden Files and Folders? (It's in Control Panel > Folder Options > View)

For some reason I can't seem to find the AppData folder.
You could open up your search bar/run menu and type %appdata%. It should take you to it.

I just tried it on a Windows 8 laptop; the searching method works fine. Just open up a folder to C: (or whatever drive you installed the game to) and search for *sol--it should come up. (For my part, I found the autosave file for the Telepath Tactics demo at C:\Users\cstern\AppData\Roaming\SinisterDesign.TelepathTacticsDemo\Local Store\#SharedObjects\TTDemo.swf )

How do I do it?

I even tried reading the source, I can't figure out where the saved games are stored.

Hey William! For which game? (If it's Telepath Tactics, see here (http://sinisterdesign.net/forum/index.php?topic=1636.0).)
