Post Can i transfer a saved game?
Just bought my self a new laptop in the sales, An i7 with 1tb hard drive, 15.6' screen, 8GB ram and 2GB dedicated nVidia GTforce graphics card :evil: :twisted: :D
Considering i only use it to play SO5 and surf the net and maybe a bit of office stuff it it probably a bit over the top :evil: :P :D
Can i transfer a saved game from my current laptop to my new one? Once all set up i'm intending to download SO5 again and still have my 'Key', I've only got 1 saved game and am getting well into it and want to continue it til SO6 comes out 8) Is it possible?.. And if so could someone post and 'Idiot Proof' Guide to doing it? Would be much appreciated! 8)

YES you can mate
just copy your saves folder in documents/so5/saves
unzip on new laptop and
open saves folder that you got from old pc press ctrl & a (select all) copy files
goto the new saves folder and paste the files you copied over the ones in there
job done

if your saved game is in slot one you only really need to copy
1.sav
1,bak
ext1.sav
01.idx
in1.idx

oh and if you have horses in the pool copy the ttf file too

Post Re: Can i transfer a saved game?
Hello, I am new to this forum, I too have the problem in that i would like to transfer my save file but i have looked in the saves folder but it is empty and i have definitely got a game saved as i am playing it on a regular basis.

Is there any way in the game or settings that i can check the folder path that the saved games go to and then i may be able to locate them, as it is a works computer that i have the game on at the moment and i want to transfer to a memory stick and put onto my personal PC?

Please help if at all possible

Thanks in advance

Pete

Are you looking at the saves folder in docs and settings (pre win8) Documents (win8)
this is the only place your saved games can be
Libraries/documents/so5/saves

Thanks for the reply PJ, i have managed to locate them as it was me being impatient and if i just waited a short while the files do come up, so i have copied the 1.sav,1,bak,ext1.sav, o1.idx & in1.idx onto a flash drive and i will attempt to put onto my home pc which is running win8 should i have any issues then i will stick a note up.

thanks again
pete
