Hi JoAJ,

I will try to help you, but I need to know that you can see your save in the Syberia 3 folder and that you can move files around and know how to take a zipped file and unzip it and change its name just a little and get it into Syberia 3 folder?

All of this will be after I send you a zipped save by email.

Mr. Bill

PS: You need to learn to go into the Syberia 3 folder and back up the save by putting the save in a folder named according to what event you just finished or are trying to accomplish. If you do things in weird order you may often get in trouble. This is a new one for me.

Hey Sandy,

Same questions and remarks as I said to JoAJ.

I will try to help you, but I need to know that you can see your save in the Syberia 3 folder and that you can move files around and know how to take a zipped file and unzip it and change its name just a little and get it into Syberia 3 folder?

All of this will be after I send you a zipped save by email, If you need it. It is doable, but takes a lot of practice.

Thank you for your help, Bill - much appreciated.

I would also like to point out that I just remembered that Microids has some saved games for Syberia 3 here. That could also come in handy for players. Not sure, but maybe one of those is for the ice breaker puzzle?

Hi Marian,

The problem is their instructions depending on the player's background.

I do have saves for practically all locations. Their saves are not in folders named as to where they are with that save. I had to load each of there saves to know where it was. I passed that info to another player who had no idea which to load. Their saves are also numbered from 1 to 20 and they suggest you put them in place after you change the number to 1-- from say 19--.

Bill
I should add that only two of them, that they added later, are labeled because they were added later by themselves. The one that is over 7 MB has 20 zipped together. The one named save Bill Horton is for the fire engine problems in the game. Should be named Getting Rid of Bats. At least they consider my saves as good and safe. smile

Thanks, Marian and Bill,
I just downloaded a few of those saves, including the one pertaining to the ice breaker puzzle, so I'll give it a try.

Thanks Mr Bill and Marian.
Well, now something I should have tried before when I downloaded the "save" folder from Microids, was to turn the computer off and then on again - should know that after all these years!!. Anyway, this morning, low and behold all the saves are showing up in the folder - yippee!!!! So, hopefully I can now move on. Hope anyone else who is stuck is also able to! So goo luck.

Hey Sandy,

After you place a save in with your previous save (recommended by me - I'm not sure what Microids recommends here) On the game you add in change the number to 2 (2-- not 1-- or 19--). now you have two saves in there, your original numbered 1-- and the new one you added numbered 2--. Start the game. When the menu comes up choose Continue. When the original starts to play hit ESC Key again and choose Load and hopefully you will see both (sometimes not - hit Continue again, now when original begins to play again hit ESC key, then load again and it should show the new one. It take the game time to read the new game and to be able to display it in load. I know this because I have done it hundreds of times now.

If you only have one save in there (a new one only - number it 1--), then you have to start a new game and take it through the first discussion with Kurk before hitting ESC key and then Load to see the new
save you placed in.

Cheers,

Bill

Thanks again, Bill. I think I can handle it. I'd appreciate if you would remind me again as to where I will find the place that the Save game is located. Is it in the game files, or somewhere else? I have a WIN 10 64 Bit PC, if that helps any. Thanks
Sandy
BTW: I've already downloaded those two savegames from the place you recommended

Where are game saves?

C:\Users\your name\AppData\LocalLow\Microids\Syberia3\saves are here.

Example of where saves are: They are in Hidden Folders. Ask for help with this in Windows 10. I have 7.

Syberia3(folder)
Options(folder)(in Syberia3 with save.
1--UI_Loader_Zone_Monde01_CampYoukol_Title--131481481668558110--UI_Loader_Zone_Monde01_CampYoukol_Summary(save all of this is it's name starting with the 1--)


How do I load someone else's save?

Here is something I have discovered. I think, when they suggested starting a new game, it was to give the game time to read other saves being added and gather info on them to add to the load menu. I have four saves in the game now at the same time.(four seems to be the limit- to show in load).

Ok, now we are talking about what you have to do: You have one original save with a one on the front of it. If you put a second save in with your original save, like Microids, you will have to change the 1 to a 2 on the front of it before adding it in with your original save. Now when you start the game and the menu comes up choose Continue (not load - I had one in that situation for quite some time and load did not happen. After your older game loads hit the Escape Key and choose load this time. You should now be given a choice between your original and Microid's save. The pictures should help you know which is which. Sometimes I have to hit the ESC Key a second time and hit load again.

Cheers,

Bill

Mr. Bill I made a suggestion on your post on the Tech Support Forum. It's a way that I used to print a walk thru page with a picture. Check it out and let me know if it works for you. smile

Hi Guys, I miss you all.

As you all know, I sorta got myself all wrapped up in writing a Syberia 3 Walkthrough. I just wanted you to know it is about 2/3rds done. I'm at Rescuing Kurk. Both Part I and Part 2 Now have Indexes to content so finding a topic or puzzle is now easier. I am using many screenshots. Some people need them and some don't.

Syberia 3 Walkthrough - Part 1 - Beginning to Valsebbor

Syberia 3 Walkthrough - Part 2 - Valsembor to Baranour

Take care all and what happened to all those folks that were now going to play it????

Cheers,

Mr. Bill

You can not save the game...it saves itself at certain places. You will see something like a bunch of gears on the right side of the game at different points that means it is saved up to that point.. if you go further and you don't see those gears .. the game is not saved.

Hi albet,

Can you show me a picture of what you see or describe what you see? Do you get a menu when you first start the game that says Continue, New Game, Load, Options, Credits, Quit? The last Choice is Quit. after you click on Quit a Confirm comes up. Are you playing in English or some other language?

Take care,

Bill
