Hi Everyone,
I like to put a back up copy of a couple of save games on to a zip disc just in case of a computer accident,but I can't find them in the Divine Divinity folder.I've done a search for Divine Divinity saves{windows xp]without success.At the risk of looking an idiot does anyone know where the save files are located? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />


I don't know how they work,I just drive them.{Oddball in Kellys Heroes}

In windows Xp they were in a folder in my dd folder. I think there are 3-4 folders in dd folder and in one of them u have saves folder. If ur absolutely sure that they are not there try looking in ur documents folder on the desktop

Please look at ../Divine Divinity/Run/savegames/ . The Folders in this Directory are your Savegames. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

Many thanks Craptor and Barnabus for your valuable help.The save games were indeed in the D/D folder "Run",I had assumed that this was the run game instructions and hadn't bothered to open it!

there's a new lesson for you, if at first you don't succeed, check all of the unlikely places. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />


Never argue with an idiot, he'll just drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

And... don't forget about this one:

4) Problem: I made backups from my savegames and now I can’t load them anymore

When you copy files from a CD to your HDD, the read-only flag is set by Windows, preventing Divine Divinity to open these files for writing. Clear the read-only flag by right clicking on the files, selecting properties, unchecking the read only flag and then clicking on apply.

But let's hope you never need to dig your savegames up, except for replaying them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />
