No idea.
You could try something like

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\RHEM 4\

if it's not in your Documents folder.

The AppData folder won't be visible unless you set your computer to show hidden files and folders.

Did you try making a save and then doing a "search by date" for that save?

Were you able to unhide the AppData folder?

If I can get hold of a Win7 computer to install it on I'll see if I can find where it puts its saves.

EDIT --

Going by what the saves from the save game server look like, your saves probably have names like 1a.txt, 1b.txt, 2a.txt, 2b.txt, etc. which correspond to the save slots. If you installed the game into your Documents folder, they will be found in a subfolder of the RHEM4 folder.

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

If you installed in C:\Program Files(x86) the game may put saves elsewhere if it's having trouble making changes inside C:\Program Files(x86).

Check my updated post (right above your last post) and see if it's any help.

By the way, if you installed in C:\Program Files(x86) instead of the Documents folder, try looking in

C:\Program Files(x86)\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

instead of

C:\Users\<username>\Documents\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT\

and check the date and time of the 1a.txt, 1b.txt, 2a.txt, 2b.txt, etc. files to make sure they are the saves you made and not just empty slots that installed with the game.

Try the RHEM4 saves at ***Savegameserver***. See if those will load for you.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/15/12 09:40 PM

It isn't necessarily your computer. MaG said that other people have had trouble with her RHEM4 saves, which is why I suggested you try saves from somewhere else to see if you can get those to work. Of course the trouble there is finding the right one out of that collection of saves, but at least you can find out if they'll load.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/16/12 06:42 PM

well i went to Savegamersserver , but i still have to know what file to put it in.that the problem..H.B.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/16/12 08:34 PM

Start by putting a couple of the saves in the RHEM4/DATA/DEPO folder and see if they load. You might want to copy the current contents of the /DATA/DPOT folder to another folder to back them up first.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/17/12 12:06 AM

ok i did that but it goes to VERS-text document..there is no saved games like the other games that i have played..???
Posted by: Jenny100

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/17/12 10:04 AM

You might need to dump all the downloaded saves into the DPOT folder, not just the 1a.txt, 1b.txt; 2a.txt, 2b.txt; etc. pairs.

Also, you may have already done this, but make sure you unzip/unrar the .rar files before using them because the game won't recognize them otherwise.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/19/12 09:35 AM

But you are able to save, so it must be putting them somewhere.

Are you sure it isn't putting them somewhere like
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT

or

C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\RHEM4\DATA\DPOT

or some variation of the possibilities suggested ***here***?

If you're trying to search locations in the AppData folder, you need to change your search options to search hidden folders. One way to do that is ***here***.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/19/12 11:45 PM

I think GotGame changed their name to WHA2 or something. If you go to their old website at
http://www.gotgameentertainment.com/
you see a lot of broken links to pictures which have been that way for a while.

The announcement for RHEM 4 at
http://www.gameboomers.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/678617
mentions the founder of WHA 2 being Howard Horowitz, who was also the founder of GotGame Entertainment.

I don't really know why your game wouldn't install if it had been uninstalled -- unless it got corrupt or an antivirus blocked it or something. Maybe a registry cleaner would fix that problem.

If it was uninstalled, that might explain why you couldn't find any saves or save slot files.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/20/12 07:30 PM

Seems like it's getting deleted -- maybe when it tries to save.

When you installed it, did you install to your User's Documents folder? If not, try that next time.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/20/12 09:12 PM

what ever i do -like when i click on say dpot it goes to this vers-text doc.??
Posted by: Jenny100

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/20/12 10:51 PM

Use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall it and start from scratch.

There is a file named vers.txt in the save folder, but it isn't a save.

You aren't trying to open the save by clicking on the save file, are you? You have to open the saves from inside the game.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/20/12 11:27 PM

thanks guys for the great info. happydanceok now do you have any tips on reinstalling this game so it works like it should ?? i'am all ears.. thanks
Posted by: Jenny100

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/21/12 11:23 AM

Install it to C:\Users\<username>\Documents\RHEM4\

It should create a RHEM4 folder inside your Documents folder with the game inside it. That's what worked on the Win7 computer I tested it on.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/21/12 01:42 PM

You need persistence if you're going to play a RHEM game.

Yikes just hit a road block again,just about at the same spot as last time.. help hardwall crazy

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/24/12 11:22 AM

If it's a Hints problem, you're probably better off figuring out what you're missing than getting a save from somewhere.

If you want to use a save from the save game server, you may have to exchange the entire contents of your /DATA/DPOT folder with what is in the save folder. Then load each save and try to figure out which is past your trouble spot.

Finding the right save tends to be a problem with a non-linear game like this.

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/24/12 01:26 PM

Thanks for your responce.this is the very last save that i got from MaG.SO I Don't have any save bevond this point.any thought on this ??thanks again for your help..
Posted by: Jenny100

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/24/12 05:33 PM

I thought you were using the saves from Savegameserver.
Do the saves from Savegameserver not load for you?
Are you able to load the saves that came from MaG?
Posted by: deleterman

Re: Win 7 saved games. - 10/24/12 07:59 PM

Hi,no i went back to the save that i got from MaG.and so far it 's working very good.but i thank you so much for all your patiences.H.B.
