I'm not sure if this board is where to post this question, but...is there a way to save your progress in this game without constantly overwriting your previous save? I hit "save" or "save and quit" and constantly overwrite my previously saved spot.

I thought that there are several saves that can be done. Maybe someone can remember better than my memory.

EDIT: I checked the manual and no mention of save procedure except - continue will start the saved game.

I too, MaG read the manual to see if I was missing something, but couldn't find an answer to my question. Sometimes when I'm working on a puzzle, I like to keep a save for right before I start working on it in case I have to go back.

I also don't much care for the fact that if I go back to a previous save, I eliminate the more current save (at least that's what I'm understanding from the manual).

I had this problem worked out awhile back but have forgotten exactly how I did it. Hopefully, I made a note about it and if I find it I'll let you know. Will let you know either way. laugh

EDIT:

This is what I wrote. You'll have to think about it a little but it will answer your question enough that you can figure out how to do what you want.

There are 8 saves (00 through 07) allowed in Keepsake. Each time you make a save you lose the picture that was stored in the game for the previous save and the picture for the new save replaces it. Although you may show you have, say, six saves, you will have only the picture for number six still in the game save folder. The picture is a .tga file.

The path to the game is:
C:\Program Files\The Adventure Company\Keepsake\res\Save\1
There is one folder (titled 1) and eight files in the Save Folder.

SAVE folder:
The two files titled savegame1.tcl & savegame1-info.tcl are the last save you made. The file titled ss1-1024X768.tga (or whatever the .tga file is called in your game) is the picture for your last save.

1 folder:
Each of the two like-numbered .tcl files in this folder are saved games with the last pair matching the two .tcl files in the Save Folder, even though their names do not match.
--------------------------------------------------
So if someone sends you a save from their game and it is NOT their last save at that time then you will not get a proper picture of that save in the game but that
