Title: Transfer/backup saved games
Post by: venerablemasterj on November 23, 2011, 04:20:03 AM
Hey I just installed silver lining on another computer  and am trying to figure out how to transfer my saved games. Where are they? I can't seem to find them in any of the folders. The saves are still on my old system.

Where the game is actually installed look for the game\saves folder - all the saved games are stored in there.

I did that and the directory on both systems is blank but when I actually go to restore on the old system they're all there. But on the new system the restore games of course are not there. This is wierd.

Try the first suggestion listed here on the new computer:

Not sure if that really addresses my issue. I'm just simply trying to port over my saved games from my old system to my new one. On the the old one the saves show up in the restore menu but the actual save game directory on both systems is blank.

Try looking in the directory
C:\Users\WhateverYourUserNameIs\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Phoenix Online\The Silver Lining\game\saves

They might be stored there instead.

HEY! I finally figured it out!! Since I was playing in Windows 7 Starter I had to click the compatibility button at the top of the window in the saves directory to show all the save/compatibility files.  Otherwise windows wouldn't show them, you wouldn't see them, and it would be as if they didn't exist in that directory. YAY!!
