How to change or redirect save game location?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it's possible to change the save game location or point the game to another save game location, since I often hop on to different computers, and have to constantly find the save game and drag it to the new location.

If using Steam, why not use its cloud save storage for this kind of stuff? Either way, if under Windows, there are symbolic links which have some nice uses...

Symbolic links work for Linux and Mac, too.. in fact, they had them long before Windows did. And yes, they work great for this kind of thing.

This is an excellent suggestion.. and if you're not using Steam, try installing DropBox, and make the gamesave folder a dropbox folder. That's like having your own cloud storage to sync across multiple machines.
