Saving Your Game Save Files


Recommended Posts

The easiest way to maintain your saved game files when switching between the release build and joining the public test is to make a duplicate save by copying the folder in your Saved Games folder and move it to a safe location before joining the Public Test.

Here's how to do this:

Method 1:

Step 1: Load the game you wish to save.

Step 2: Make 2 saves using the save feature in the game. Log out of the game after you confirm you have two saves of the same game.

Step 3: Switch to the public test. Choose one of the duplicated saves to be your public test save. Only enter using that save, do not launch the game using the save you are keeping for the release build.

Step 4: Play the public test.

Step 5: When you are done with the Public Test, switch your Steam client back to the release build.

Step 6: Launch Grounded.

Step 7: Add the backup saves back into the original save folder.

Step 8: Exit Grounded and wait for the cloud to sync.

Step 9: Launch Grounded and continue playing where you left off!

 

Method 2:

Step 1: Navigate to C:\Users[USERNAME]\Saved Games\Grounded

Step 2: Find the save folder you wish to save, and make a copy of it. You can add something like "-Current Save" at the end so you know what save it is.

Step 3: Move the copy to a location outside of this folder, preferably on your Desktop or somewhere you will remember.

Step 4: Join the Public Test and start playing!

Step 5: When you are done with the Public Test, switch your Steam client back to the release build.

Step 6: Move your save file back into your Saved Games folder. Remove any additional words you added to the name.

Step 7: Log in and continue playing where you left off!

 

Have fun, and continue to let us know what you uncover in the public test backyard!
