Hello all,
I'm in trouble again lol.

Dracula origin has gone haywire,
inventory items continuously/randomly/rotate and show in top right corner.
Cannot save, or load.

I am at the 3 pyramid puzzle and have light beams activated.

I will try, re install and start.
BUT I wish to get my saves out 1st, so as not to play all again.

I have seached ,but cannot find where saves are stored.
Can someone please help (Win XP Sp3 ) .

best wishes to all
Derek ( 80yrs + 4days)

Hi Derek,

The saves for this game if using XP can be found here:
C:\Documents and Settings\(computer name)\Application Data\Games\dracula\save

If the folder doesn't appear, it might be hidden so then try this:
Open a folder - any folder.
Go to Tools at top bar. On the drop down menu, select Folder Options.
Go to View on the new frame.
Look for that folder icon with 'Hidden files and folders'.
Select or tick on - Show hidden files and folders.
Then look for the C:\ file as above in bold.

luck

Hi Rushes,

bit that fooled me.

I will now try and resurrect Dracula lol

Have a good Christmas and New Year

C:\Users\[your computer name]\AppData\Roaming\Games\dracula\save

scared I'm not familiar with Win 8.

Have you tried running a file search for "dracula" to see what comes up?

Did you look in the same Application Data file as you did in Windows 7?

Do you have hidden files enabled on your Windows 8 computer?

You may have already tried this, Drac, but did you change compatibility on the installer before running it?
And did you run the installer as an Administrator?

And Petjo, when you installed the game, what folder did you install it to?
  • C:\Program Files ?
  • C:\Program Files (x86) ?
  • A folder inside My Documents ?
  • or somewhere else?
Also do you have Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 ?
