Probably a dum question - Transferring saves from steam to here?


#1

Basically, I have played through part 1 of Lost Heir on steam. When I play part two it asks me to use my save from part 1, but only lets me locate it on this site.

Basically, I have no clue how to upload my save to here, so I can re-download it for part 2 (which is also on steam by the way).

Any help is much appreciated,
Nathan

P.s. Sorry if this question is totally moronic, I really couldn’t find anything on it.

Hey we have the same name!

Normally on steam, whatever saves you make on the first game should be automatically transferred over to the second part if you have both games on steam. When it comes to saving on this site, at the end of the game, you should be prompted to save the game to an email you have signed up with CoG. After opening LH2, try typing the email you put in on the ‘recover saves from choiceofgame.com’ or something along those lines.

Thanks, but for some reason the saves aren’t automatically being transferred. I’ll look around in the files and see if anything stands out to me.

only save files i could find where C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\UserID\439770\remote

I still don’t have my head wrapped around this.

Are you saying that if you play LH1 on Steam, you can’t take that save into LH2 on Steam?

Or something else?

I’m saying I finished LH1 on steam, then bought LH2 also on steam. Went to play 2 and got told to locate a save on this website.

Edit: Aren’t you the guy who writes it, if so I loved LH1. Took me a while to get into things as I’m new to CYOAs, but damn did the characters get me hooked. You have real talent :slightly_smiling:

Did it locate the file and end up playing LH2 okay on Steam?


#8

No, still nothing.
I going to reinstall LH2, and see what happens.

Oh snap, just found the issue. Basically, I’m an idiot haha. Once again, loved part one, and I’m super excited to sink my teeth into part 2. Thanks for your help :smiley:

Yup, that’s me! :slight_smile: Which is why I’m worried about it working or not. :slight_smile: Thanks for the compliments!

This is the second time I heard someone have an issue with the Steam save, and the second time that I didn’t understand whether there was really a problem or not. :slightly_smiling:

So, it’s working? Are people buying both games on Steam, saving their games and continuing okay into LH2? I suspect that if it wasn’t working, I’d be hearing a lot more. But, I’d love to hear that it’s working properly from anyone who’s used Steam for both. :slight_smile:

Yep, it worked fine for me (once I stopped being stupid).

I’m happy to hear that it’s working. :slight_smile:
