Save File Location, aka, Laptop/PC out of sync

Postby goldant » Mon Jul 30, 2012 8:07 am

I've earned the ships on my PC, but not on my laptop. I'm now on vacation, and am regretting not knowing how to copy over my unlocked ships before I had left :(.

Does anybody know where FTL is storing saves currently and if it is possible to just copy/paste them over? I sync the My documents folder between both comps, so it would seem that is not it.

As far as I can tell, just like all 3rd-party Steam games, the data is stored in steamapps\common:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FTL Faster Than Light\user\prof.sav

(Adjusted, of course, for your actual computer)

The "prof.sav" file holds all of the user data. Moving it between my desktop and laptop carried everything over for me.

Thanks for the help, can't wait to get home and get all my ships unlocked on both computers.

Anyone willing to share a savegame with at least some basic unlocked ships(preferably all of course) for someone frustrated with the starting ship and lost his old save, not feeling like reunlocking all that stuff.
