So yes, if you read the title it IS Halo: Combat evolved, got it a few months ago.

It's time now to re-install and re-organize everything on my machine, so that would mean whacking everything very soon. I need to save my player checkpoints. I mean, I don't want to lose the checkpoints I've passed.

I have Win7 x64 and I see this path has something like savedgames :

C:\Users\<user>\Documents\My Games\Halo

Is this only it? Do I only need to copy this folder or are there others?

Yes, that is the only folder you need to copy to back up your saved games (I've done this before). Be sure to patch Halo after re-install before copying back the save data, as I believe the patch causes the game to overwrite that folder.

  • +1 thanks, can you elaborate on patch, what do you mean by that?

  • I believe the version of Halo on disk is v1.0 and it requires a v1.3 patch to play multiplayer. I think the game will prompt you if it wants to be updated, so I would: 1) Install 2) Start it up 3) Patch if it wants to, start it up again 4) Exit 5) Copy over your saved files from backup.
