I am trying to access Louis' saved games for Lighthouse Dark Being, but when I try to open the file Windows tells me it cannot be accessed as I may not have the necessary permissions. Can I get around this. I am hopeless with techie stuff, so I would appreciate any answers in babyspeak LOL!

If you're still having problems after Mad's help please be more specific about what step you're getting the message about permissions.

Were you able to download the Lighthouse_saves.rar file?

Were you able to extract the Lighthouse_saves.rar file to get the Lighthouse_saves folder with the "Read Me First.doc" file and Saves folder that are included inside?

Are you getting the message about permissions when you start the game and try to load a save from the game menu? Or do you get the message earlier?

Hi Jenny100 smile

As I had downloaded the saves without any problem some time ago (just in case I might get stuck myself when I played the game lol) and couldn't think why dorish wasn't able to, I have offered to zip the saves folder and email it to her.

Cheers.

OK. I wasn't sure where Dorish was getting stuck.

If Dorish is trying to "run" the .rar file through the web browser instead of downloading it first, it might produce an error. I don't know why Windows would call it a "permissions" error, but Windows has been known to lie about the nature of its errors.

The saved games of Louis are made with the GOG version of the game, with ScummV.
If you are playing the original game the saved games probally won't work.

Thanks for that warning, Lion_1251 smile

[I'm assuming dorish, like so many of us, is playing the GOG version as I've not heard otherwise.]

Here I am again. I have managed to download and extract the save files, next question is how do I insert the one I want into the game?---I told you I was hopeless at this kind of thing.

Did you receive the email I sent you - with the zipped saves, dorish ??

If so, there was a "Read Me" instructions file included smile

Another way to use the new saves from Louis would be :-

1. make a list of what you have in inventory.

2. Take out the existing save folder from the game files - which is holding all the saves YOU have made - (and stash it somewhere safe) and just replace it with the save folder from Louis - which will give you the ones HE has made.

3. Then launch the game and you will see all the saves from Louis sitting there.
And you can just choose which one would be the most appropriate to load.

4. Check what is in the inventory of the new save you've loaded.

Did you find your game's save folder, Dorish?
Louis' readme says the save folder is in the Lighthouse game folder,
which should be in the C:\GOG Games folder by default.

Okay, this is where I'm up to --I downloaded and extracted Louis' files, found the save I need, put it into a new folder and changed the save number to be the next one in the game, but I can't find where my save file is on my computer. I downloaded the game with GOG Galaxy. Jenny 100, I searched that name you gave me, but it didn't bring up my saved games.

I don't have the GOG version of Lighthouse, so Mad would be a better source of information for exactly where the GOG version of Lighthouse puts its saves (which could be different from where they'd go if you used ScummVM with the CD version).

Windows Search only searches a limited number of locations on your hard drive by default. Instead of trying to configure it to search everything, you're better off using Windows Explorer to go directly to your C:\GOG Games folder and look for a Lighthouse folder to see if there's a save folder inside.

If there's no save folder in C:\GOG Games\Lighthouse
then Mad (or someone else who owns the GOG version) will have to help since I don't own the game. The default save folder for ScummVM games is
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\ScummVM\Saved games\
but GOG has almost certainly changed that.
