Pretty simple question: where does Sins of a Solar Empire save games? I'm sharing saves between machines using Windows Live Mesh and I'd like to know where to point it.

They're saved in:

C:\Users[username]\AppData\Local\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire\

There is a Save-SinglePlayer and Save-MultiPlayer folder that contains save games from each category.

Okay, for bonus points, how do you tell Windows Live Mesh to sync that directory between two machines? – Axiom Apr 3 '12 at 1:55
