Gemma,

You don't place it in My Documents.

After you do the "show hidden files" procedure stated above; then place the file that you unzipped from the folder I sent to the save folder that you should see now at:C drive - User - your computer's name - App Data - roaming - frogwares - Testament - save folder.

Let's have a go again. Do this.

Saved game sent that is with the mail:
- Click hold the file that is in your mail and place-drop it on desktop.
Then unzip the folder.

Then show hidden files:
- Open Folder Options by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Folder Options.
- Click the View tab.
- Under Advanced settings, click Show hidden files, folders, and drives, and then click OK.

Now that you will see those folder, move the saved game file sent:
- Open your saved game folder found in C drive - User - your computer's name - App Data - roaming - frogwares - Testament - save folder.
- Then place the file inside the unzipped folder inside that save folder. Close it.
- Play and load as usual. Look for my saved game at start of load list. luck

When you open your computer folder, you will see the local disk C - that is the C drive.

Program files is one folder inside that C drive (disk). But that is not what you want to open.
You open the User folder inside that C disk.
And the rest of the folder stated above.

When you right click the zipped folder in your desktop, do you see "extract all"?
That is the unzipping program.

You need to go into your game save folder where all your other saves are for the game, and note the last numbered save there.

Then go to the unzipped save you have on your desktop and renumber that to follow on one in sequence. Then move the renumbered file into the folder with all your other saves.

Just one thought about something you might have missed in your gameplay. You say you clicked on the ashtray. You should have clicked on the cigar itself AND the very tip (burning end) of the cigar. That's two different spots. It's really easy to miss clicking on the burning tip. Just an idea.
