If you're playing a regular installed copy of Dragon Age: Origins, and then you purchase the Steam copy, can you continue with the same character/save game?

How can I do it?

i think the save games are stored in the Documents\Bioware both for the steam and regular version

you can make a backup of that folder and experiment :)

All your saves and character data is stored in the My Documents\Bioware\Dragon Age\Characters folder.

Inside that, there should be a folder with the name of your character, and inside that, a saves folder.

If you copy that folder to a back-up location, then uninstall your previous copy, and install the Steam version, you can then copy it back to the same location and you should be good to go.
