Lost progress on CW1-Mac
« on: January 27, 2018, 01:51:26 am »
So I just lost several (3?) years of progress (after moving from Windows and losing a couple of years there!). All of story mode, all of Conquest with scores 8500 +, all of Special Ops, Chronom for 3 years and dozens of downloaded maps.

Other threads suggest that a file got corrupted, but I can't find it on my Mac.

This thread suggests a user library location, but I've got nothing there for Creeperworld or Knucklecracker

I bought the software directly, no Steam.  Mac OSX 10.12 Sierra.

Any ideas about recovering my history? Or is it back to the first game in Story mode?

Thanks.

Here is a list of save file locations for the various games on various operating systems.  You did not say specifically which game you lost the files of.

There has to be something at that location, since you have started the game and even if no progress, the game would have created new files. The old files should be backed up somewhere using the same backup you use for all you other files. You can restore them in the same ways you restore other files that were lost or corrupted.

If there is no files at all in that location, then locate the log file and post it as an attachment on a response to this post.  Here is a list of log file locations for CW3:  CW1 and CW2, afaik, don't have log files.
