So I read this post and I did what it said, but when I tried to open the .points files, it either said it was empty or that it wasn't supported. What do I do?

IIRC either in the mods folder of config – ratchet freak Mar 26 '13 at 2:39

It sounds like you just tried to click the file open. Since it has a .points file extension, that won't work on most operating systems. You need to open it in a text editor.

Simply double-clicking on the points folder is not going to get you anywhere since such a file extension is not supported by any known program. You will need to right click on the file and choose the Open With option if it is available. A lot of the time on these really strange database files however, that isn't an option. So double click it and select the second option which should read: "Select a program from a list of installed programs" then hit OK.

Use Notepad to open it.

Copy and paste by opening the new installation the same way and so forth.
