Hi there

 

I need to format my hard drive but I want to keep my RT2 saved games. I cant find them anywhere. Can anybody help me?

 

I have RT2 platinum version

If you have the CD version of the game, then they're somewhere like C:\Program Files\RRT2-Pt\games. However, your RT2 folder might have a longer name (I shortened mine during installation).

 

If you have the Steam version, then your files may be elsewhere, possibly application data under a user profile. It would be something like C:\Documents and Settings\<insert username here>\Application Data\Railroad Tycoon.

 

If you still can't find them, then search your entire hard drive for this exact filename (quoted to preserve spaces):

"Example save game.GAM".

Actually try searching for *.GM2

 

You might also want to search for and save hiscore.dat

 

In both cases take careful note of where they are so you know where to put them back, (goes without saying but said anyhow)

 

Steam games may very well be saved in My Documents/My games/....

I tried looking in C:\Program Files\RRT2-Pt\games but there were only examplesavegame.gam and tutorial.gam. When I extracted them from this folder it doesn't make any change with saves during game.

 

Now I find "button" Compatibility files"(I have win Vista) in this folder and it shows all my saves but path for them were C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Railroad Tycoon II - Platinum\games

 

So if anybody alse would have the same problem, maybe this would be the solution

 

thanks

Hi, I am now playing RR2 Plat from Steam. I am using Win 7. All works well. except I cannot find the backup fines. I have carefully followed all the above suggestions. i.e. searching for backup file names and backup extensions. I have also followed the Steam paths. the user, my documents path and a number of other paths I found thru the Windows Explorer. I did find under User/Myname/My documents/My games/Sid Meier's Railroad's/Saves/Auto, a bunch of very old RR2 saved games from an old installation. I had an old disk installed RR2 which I erased a year ago. Last month I reinstalled the game via Steam.

Any help out there other than what has already been offered?

Do you have the old disk somewhere? Was it a platinum edition? If so, then we have the patch and a modded patch...
