I recently purchased and installed StarCraft 2. I want to continue the campaign on a friends computer.

How do I transfer my progress onto his computer?

Is there a profile file I can copy to his installation folder?

The question is different, but the answer is the same. Just the linking of the two is sufficient IMO. – Michael Herold Aug 2 '10 at 19:32

I believe all of your campaign information is stored in the cloud, which means you should just be able to log in on your friend's computer and continue playing. stores all of your information.

Yep, all you need to do is log into your account from the other PC. – DaveK Aug 2 '10 at 19:26
You have to move saves, maps and replays manually though. (I do believe) – ccook Aug 2 '10 at 19:35
According to what I've seen, your saves are stored in the cloud. I can see maps and replays not being saved though. – Michael Herold Aug 2 '10 at 20:02
I think it depends on whether you want your manual saves or not. If you just want to finish this mission and then continue on another computer with the next mission, you don't need to worry about it. If you save in the middle of a mission and want to continue the mission from that point, then you will need to copy your save file(s). – Michael Herold Aug 2 '10 at 21:16
Saves are stored in both places for contingency, I believe. – LiamGu Aug 3 '10 at 8:00

You will most likely find the files you are looking for in the following area, [SYSTEM DRIVE]:/USERS/[PC USERNAME]/My Documents/StarCraft II

[system drive] will usually be your C: drive. [pc username] is the USER name you log in to Windows with.

Copy the StarCraft II folder there to your new main drive, same area. Start up StarCraft II. All your mod saves, replays etc will be back. Keep in mind the system drive and user name on the new setup you may have made different. Should still work fine even if the drive and user name have changed.

This is far to generic to be of any assistance. Its clear based on the answer you have not played Starcraft II. – Ramhound Jan 16 '13 at 17:03
