Thread: Backup your save game

  1. #1

    Backup your save game

    I just finished playing and I want to restart a new game. Does anyone know how to backup the current save game so it doesn't get overwritten ? Since the save game will carry over to Banner Sage 2 and 3, I want to see the effect of difference choices in the long run.

    its been said before by others : if you are using windows, check in users folder. should be somewhere like this : \Users\User\AppData\Roaming\TheBannerSaga\Local Store\save\saga1
    if you can't find it just make a search.

    every saved game file is paired with a screenshot. the last ones are always called 'resume', others are named with a reference. just copy those saves to another folder and swap them whenever you want.
    i've been playing two runs one in normal mode and one in hard just switching files back and forth.

    Unfortunately, running a search for that folder doesn't yield a result for me. For some reason my computer hides the AppData file from me. Is there a way to make it visible? Or is there an alternative place the saves might be stored?

    this is what john sent to me, but only applies to mac:
    *.log.txt files are log files, so they won't help you. What you want are the save files:

    Save Games

    Games are saved in a similar location to the logfiles, in this case:
    Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/TheBannerSaga/Local Store/save/saga1/
    Open Finder
    Hit Command-Shift-G to open the “Go to the folder:” popup dialog
    Paste the path into the textbox and hit Enter
    Each save file is a single .json file paired with a .png screenshot. You may share save files with others or transfer them to different machines. They may also be used to contain the state necessary to reproduce bugs.

    even if it's hidden, you can open it by writing the path to folder directly into address bar
    If you don't know where to put it - put it in the pillage

    If you're using windows 7, from windows explorer click tools->folder options->view->show hidden files, folders. I manage to locate my save and already back it up. Thanks everyone.

    Hey frog-of-dhoom, I use Windows 8 also, and for me the folder can be found by pasting "C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\TheBannerSaga\Local Store\save\saga1" (without the quotation marks) in the file search bar in File Explorer. Make sure to replace [USERNAME] with your username.

    Also, if you want to navigate there manually, you can un-hide the hidden AppData folder by clicking "View>Show/hide>Hidden items" in File Explorer.

    Why oh why is this not saved as everything else almost is in the documents. I have 46 games save from documents\mygames, another 15 in documents\savedgames and another 100 in documents directly. And the only game it´s importance to save after you finished it is not using the standard way of saving games?

    Please tell me that you save all playthroughs online so that I don´t have to do a refound. Or that steam has them save. Becouse I wiped that computer twice since finished the first game. And thougth that I saved all imprant files by comping documents. Not some freeking roming folder. I hate the rooming folder it´s 1000000000000% pointless.

    Refound it is.

    Saga1 had Steam Cloud saves enabled, a couple of months after its release (that is mid 2014).

    You want to manually back-up your save games, or the game itself? Are you referring to Saga1 or Saga2? Are you playing the Steam or GOG.com version of the game?
