Hi Guys

I have just started playing this game, it has an auto save (which I find annoying), I have had to start the game twice due to asking the wrong question normally just after an auto save. My question is does anyone know how to access the Save Folder, I have check the Steam Forum but the link given there does not work when I put it into the search box, any help gratefully recieved

Cheers
SAFC

I've moved your post over to Glitches since this is a technical question rather than a question about actual gameplay.

I am not all that familiar with where Steam puts game saves, so let's wait for someone else who is.

I'm leaving shortly so won't have time to check with Steam, but normally autosaves are not accessible from within the game. I will check when I get home. Rather than using the Search box, have you tried putting the link directly into the URL box in your browser?

The developer posted this on Steam:

Quote
Hey Gingergal, I see you tracked it down but if anyone else is curious, an easy method is to paste this into your file address bar and find the GameDatav3 file: %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Microids\Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot_ The First Cases


And a player posted this:

Quote
C:\Users\username\AppData\LocalLow\Microids\Agatha Christie - Hercule Poirot_ The First Cases/game data v 3.bin

the game data v 3 bin is the save file. this did work for me and what I did in my second run-through of the game.

Had a delay in leaving... as the dev states, you need to put in your address box, not the search box as I mentioned above. This is not a "search" - it is taking you straight to the URL.

OK, I'm back! safc, I doubt there is anyone here who hasn't posted something where it shouldn't be! Welcome to the club! No problems.

So, I looked up your post and read it all more closely. The dev was not very clear on where to paste that search string. It is for you to find where the save is on your COMPUTER, not on-line. When they said the "file address bar," they should have said to paste in the Windows search box at the bottom left of your screen. Both will lead to the same place. However, note that you will need to replace "user name" with the user name you have for your computer.

HI Guys

Sorry for the late reply, I had logged off by the time Draclvr posted and last night was my Father - Daughter meal night

Will try your suggestion Draclvr hopefully it will work as it is realy annoying having to restart the game if you ask the wrong question

cheers
SAFC
