Well I just loaded up Skyrim again on my new Windows 8 system and some weird things are happening.
It was a new computer so, since I had the disc version (which still connects to Steam) I installed the Skyrim again. OK steam took forever to install it I assume because it was downloading the 2 DLC's that I had. When it finally got installed all my old saves were listed but none of my mods and the game said that my saves were missing some things (which I assume were the mods).
I tried my best to redo the mods and when I started a new game it worked fine. However I wanted to delete my old saves. I tried to do it in the game and they would be reinstated every time I started again. I went in to steam and found that the Cloud steam option was disabled but I turned it on and off again.
Then I figured that I'd just go to the save folder and delete them manually. I can't find the save folder. In windows 7 it was in C/user/myname/documents/skyrim/saves. In windows 8 there is no save file in that folder and I think the folder was from my old document folder that copied from my old computer.
Anyway if anyone is playing or has played Skyrim on windows 8 do you know where the save game files are stored?
All I can find on the internet is windows 7 info and nothing on Win 8.
You laugh because I'm different I laugh because you're all the same
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
Wow, it didn't even occur to me that Windows would hide game saves. One of the first things I do with a new OS is check the Show Hidden Folders option. Here's just another reason to do that! The programmers really don't trust us, do they? Wonder why? LOL
