URGENT : Baldur's Gate Query


Walsingham

Recommended Posts

I have just finished a playthrough of BG1 using my original 6 disc set, including TOSC. I am now ready to import my lovely shiny character file into BG2 and continue the adventure.

 

I have done this before, sveeral years back. I can see imported character files.

 

HOWEVER, when I go to where I think the BG1 folder is, I can't find squat. No savegames, no exported character files.

 

They must be in my machine somewhere, as I can import them into BG1 if I try to start a new game.

 

What the hell is going on?

Are you looking under Users or in the Documents?

 

Sometimes older games or Win7's install-to-Program Files(86) means saves get put in Users and not also in Documents or original install directory.

I've enabled hidden folders, and looked in my user folder, and nothing

 

 

How the hell do I enable a full search.

As LC says, it probably got installed into Program Files(x86)/Black Isle/etc. Do a search for baldur.sav if you still can't find it, that should point you to the folder where the files actually are.

 

edit: search again -> custom (assuming you have W7, I don't know squat about that abortion known as W8, nor do I want to)

So they're not under

 

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Baldur's Gate\ ?

 

That seems to be the common spot for many people using discs/Win7.

Yup. Found it. Although I had to log in as admin, download the files to a memory stick, and transfer that way.

 

Why in the name of all that is holy are the files so bloody secret!???

 

EDIT:

 

Thanks to all for your help.
