Hi Agosen.

In version 1.04 and above, save games in Vista are held in [Username]/Documents/My Games/The Spirit Engine 2. In XP, it ought to be My Documents/My Games/The Spirit Engine 2.

The files have to be held here to comply with Vista's UAC system.

Pff - I cant believe i didnt check such an obvious place, i guess having an empty save folder in the root dir kinda threw me.

Thanks alot mate Smile

No problem, I'm happy I could help. Very Happy There still seems to be no consensus on where developers are supposed to put save files, so they can be difficult to track down. It doesn't help that Microsoft seems to change the 'Documents' folder structure with every version of Windows.
