I'm looking at moving an old Black & White savegame off an old hard drive to my current machine, but I can't figure out where it stores saves. They're not in My Games or the install folder, that I can see. Where are Black and White savegames kept?
Studoku's answer is correct as far as older Windows versions are concerned (XP and earlier).
For Vista and later, if you installed to the default location and did not run the game as administrator, you will likely need to look in
%LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore, then navigate to the subfolder that corresponds to your Black & White installation, e.g.
%LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Lionhead Studios\Black & White\Profiles.
C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Local; but just typing it into Explorer should open the correct folder.
On a related note, I always create my own top-level folder for games (
C:\Games). A lot of these older titles try to save stuff in the application directory, which has actually been a bad practice for many years now - but a lot of game developers were very slow to stop doing that, so a lot of them end up with their stuff in the VirtualStore, thanks to the redirection performed by Windows. Using a custom top-level folder bypasses this problem, since that will have all the permissions it needs to write with the normal user account.
