I have a new computer, and need to copy my save game data across from Kenny's Adventure. Because I've got very far in that game, starting from scratch is not a solution.

I've copy-pasted the game's entire folder from Program Files, but I only got the Hungarian translation, but not my save game data.

Certainly, I looked at other folders too, but didn't see anything else belonging to the game. Any ideas?

  • You could try using FileMon/ProcessMonitor on the old computer, loading up the saved game, and then looking at the list of files accessed. – bwarner Jan 28 '11 at 19:40
  • Thanks, I'll try that later today. Anyway, I think this should be an answer, so I can accept it and award the bounty if it works. – nyuszika7h Jan 28 '11 at 19:41

As far as I can tell it stores player (and presumably saved-game) info in C:\Program Files\Kennys Adventure\Game.bin. I'm basing this on the trial version from http://www.divogames.com/content/games/en/files/kenny/kenny_adventure_demo.exe

  • Yeah, the solution was to reinstall Kenny's Adventure and overwrite that file before the first start. :) – nyuszika7h Feb 3 '11 at 11:00

Many games save your data in the My Documents folder, either in a Folder named after the Game or Publisher, or in a subfolder of My Games.

  • I didn't found anything there. – nyuszika7h Jan 22 '11 at 18:40

Have you tried in Application Data folder? Games occasionally save things in there.

Type %APPDATA% into your explorer window to go there.

  • Yes, I've checked that too, but found nothing. – nyuszika7h Jan 22 '11 at 19:19

There are two places for application data on a Windows XP system (making assumptions here).

%APPDATA% has already been mentioned, which should take you to the folder

C:\Documents and Settings\{user name}\Application Data

If it's not there (check for the company name DivoGames or some derivative of it) you can look in the following directory.

C:\Documents and Settings\{user name}\Local Settings\Application Data

Remember to also go to Tools->Folder Options->View->Show Hidden Files and Folders

If it's not in those two places then its somewhere in the registry, or its obscurly named and you will have to use something like ProcMon, as previously mentioned, to deduce it. But I would almost guarantee you that your game data is in one of those two directories if you didn't explicitly save it somewhere else or used a game service like Steam or GameTap or something.
