Title: Save Game Locations
Post by: knucracker on July 19, 2017, 02:07:38 pm
This is where each game stores data on each platform. If you want to transfer information from one computer to another, these are the locations you need.
For Windows machines, copy the path into the WIndows File Explorer address bar, Windows will automatically resolve the %appdata% and %HOMEPATH% components of the file path.

Note for the record- IF you move the location of your documents folder to a different hard drive than C: and you have Microsoft Office installed, CW3 will default to OneDrive, not your actual documents folder.

Are you using a microsoftlogin or an local account? I don't see it happening for me although i do the redirection for me via group policy to a network location. so not an actual way a home user would do it.
and without an microsoftlogin i'm not logged in automatically to onedrive

I'm logged into my OS as me- Windows 10. It's probably somewhat specific, but I figured it was worth noting so people didn't have to manually search their computer for where CW3 is putting the files.

I do have MS Office and the Creeper World 3 folder is indeed in OneDrive. My question: is there a way to NOT have it be there. If I move it one level up to "documents" will the game find it?

(I basically don't want it uploading to the cloud but I don't know if there is a way to exclude an individual folder inside the OneDrive folder from this?).

Not quite an solution but this will tell OneDrive to not download it to computer.

For Particle Fleet, you can go to the "Adv" tab in settings and change the data storage directory to some other place.
For CW3 you have to edit the GameSettings flile found here:
c:\Users\YOUR_USER\AppData\Roaming\creeperworld3\GameSettings.xml
There's an entry that looks like this:
  <CustomDataPath>
  </CustomDataPath>
Put a path between those tags.
