Mac Yosemite update, Save games missing
« on: July 21, 2015, 03:54:51 AM »
Hi,

Yesterday I updated my OSX. Now the save games are missing.
I find topics of this, but those are soon a year old, don't you guys think its time to fix this?
I was on day 8. This is a matter that totally destroys the otherwise very nice impression of this remake.

Geez...

This is a problem with Unity and Apple, not with our code. Unfortunately Unity places save files in a location that gets wiped on major Mac updates. This affects all Unity-made games, not just our own.

These are the two potential locations Unity saves to on the Mac:
/Users/<Username>/Library/Caches/<Company Name>/<Application Name>/
/Users/<Username>/Library/Application Support/<Company Name>/<Application Name>/

Supposedly, later versions of Unity save to the second location, but I haven't seen evidence of that yet. So if you don't want to lose save data from Unity games, back up the Unity-related folders in your Caches folder regularly.

In the meantime, email us at support (at) postudios (dot) com and we will be happy to provide you with a save that gets you close to where you were.
