Hi smile

I bought "The Dark Eye - Chains of Satinav" download from GOG and then installed it and made one save. Specifically to find out the location of the saved games.
But I can't find the save !! crazy

I've tried several of the routes I was given in a previous thread here plus the route that Gog sent me when I was trying to find the saves for their release of Scratches Director's Cut - but nothing has turned up the save for me frown

So ....
Does anyone have the GOG download installed on a Win7 machine ??
And if so, could they please tell me if they know where their saves games are located ??

Thanks.

Hi MaG smile

Thanks for your very swift reply, but, unfortunately, the save isn't there, either rolleyes

It's going to be such a nuisance if whenever I install a game on my lovely new machine I can't ever find the saves eek

Cheers.

Have you checked the Roaming folder for folders that look like they came from the game?

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\...

Hi Jenny100 smile

Yes. I've checked "Roaming" but didn't find the save.

In fact I've checked a lot of the routes suggested when I had this problem with Scratches Director's Cut but none have found the save for Chains of Satinav so far mad

[The only game I have installed on this new computer that has saves in a sensible place is "Secret Files 3" !!]

Cheers.

One thought - it could be in a "Deep Silver" folder (developer).

---------
I reactivated my game and found the saved game folder in my win7 here:
C:\Users\Computer's name\AppData\Local\Daedalic Entertainment\Satinav\Savegames

Sorry that it is not where yours or the GOG release is located.

My GOG game downloads go into my Documents. (I have Win 7) My saves for the games are also there.
I have looked through and found that Win 7 has put games and saves in the most odd places!!
Wish it could make it's mind up!! lol

Hi again smile

MaG .... Thank you so much for going to those lengths to try and help kissy
I'm afraid the saves aren't in that place on my machine.
I've also tried several variations like adding "Gog" to the mix and/or using "The Dark Eye" as the title.
[And I'd already tried substituting "Deep Silver", too, earlier.]

Upsydaisy .... My Gog downloads go into My Documents but not the save games.

It's looking like I'll have to go and ask Gog where they are !!

Cheers.

I have Dark Eye from GOG, Mad. I'll see if I can install it on a Win 7 and figure out where it puts its saves. I didn't have time this morning before I had to leave. I may not have any better luck than you did though.

EDIT

This is on a Windows 7 x64 computer,
GOG version of the game:

The save I made was named: savegame00.dat

and showed up in:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Daedalic Entertainment\Satinav\Savegames

So it's the same location as MaG's version of the game.

If you're not seeing it, make sure you have hidden folders set to be visible in Control Panel \ Folder Options.

And if I may add to Jenny100's reply,If that fails, try doing a search for:

savegame00.dat

But, still... what a silly place to put a saved game file!

Absolutely !! I'm nervous now (every time I install a game) that I won't be able to find things eek

[I just installed a new game to my ancient Win98SE machine and finding everything afterwards was SO easy thumbsup]
