I'm the GOG version of DOS:EE but now I need to switch from Windows 7 to Ubuntu.

I have the 'Larian Studios' folder from Windows 7 backed up. Can I just use it to replace the 'Larian Studios' folder in the Linux version and continue from where I left off?

I assume this will also include my previously selected game options and custom controls.

Mind, I've never transferred game saves or used linux before.

Thanks.

It seems so, since the directory structure seems to be identical. But I don't know for sure. Maybe Raze or others can confirm it.

Besides, how do you plan to transfer the directory from Windows to Linux? There are several ways to do so: reading the Windows disk from Linux (vice versa isn't possible without 3rd party software for Windows, as it doesn't know Linux file systems ex factory), using a FAT or NTFS formatted USB stick that both can read, transfer via network (Samba or SSH), to name the most common ones.

If you have any Linux-related questions about this endeavor, ask away and I'll try to help you as far as I can. Welcome to the Linux world. smile

edit: You can see the config and save files locations for both OS here.

Yes, that should work.
