Well, pretty much everything is in the title. Since the game doesn't use Steam Cloud, where can I find back the save files (containing my character's level, etc) ?

The smrconfig file located in C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Demiurge Studios\Shoot Many Robots\SOMEWEIRDINTEGER\ contains the player's configuration, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. There's also a slot() file in the same folder, but the content isn't human readable.

Note that I've got the PC version, and bought it from Steam.

This depends on where you purchased the game from. Did you buy it through GamersGate? Somewhere else? – GnomeSlice Apr 8 '12 at 17:40
Oh, sorry, didn't know there were other buying methods. I bought it in Steam. I'll edit the question, thanks. – Anto Apr 8 '12 at 19:24

After a few tests, it seems that the slot() file mentionned hereabove contains the character's data (level, equipment, unlocks, etc.)

So if you play on two different computers, you just have to copy/paste this file at the right location: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Demiurge Studios\Shoot Many Robots\SOMEWEIRDINTEGER\

Run process monitor and set a process filter to the game's executable. Now you can watch every file the game touches.

Not really the answer I was looking for, but thanks for the advice ;) – Anto Apr 9 '12 at 16:29
