I am currently playing a flash-game (Mardek RPG chapter 3) and I found it pretty long. I've done quite a lot of progress on a computer that's not mine (it belongs to my relatives), and now I want to continue playing this session on my computer.

I'm playing it off-line, so the saved data is on the computer.

Is it possible to transfer the saved data to my own computer? If so, how can it be done?

The solution depends on your operating system. From the Kongregate forums:

  1. Go to Folder Settings in Windows and turn hidden folders ON.

  2. Next, go to

C:\Users\YOUR WINDOWS USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\#SharedObjects\SOME RANDOM LETTERS AND NUMBERS\

  1. There should be two folders, one named chat.kongregate.com and one named armorgames.com or a different website you played it on

  2. Copy the save files/folders from the source computer to the destination computer

  3. You’re DONE! You can now pick up where you left off, and hopefully make progress towards the new badges (which WILL appear… eventually)

The folder locations for various OS's are as follows:

On Microsoft Windows NT 5.x and 6.x, they are stored in:

 %APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\
 %APPDATA%\Macromedia\Flash Player\macromedia.com\support\flashplayer\sys\

On Mac OS X, they are stored in:

~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects/
~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/

On Linux or Unix, they are stored in:

~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/
~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/

For Linux and Unix systems, if the open-source Gnash plugin is being used instead of the official Adobe Flash, they will instead be found at:

~/.gnash/SharedObjects/

Assuming your relative's computer is running windows, flash local storage is usually found in a location such as:

C:/Users/[USERNAME]/AppData/Roaming/Macromedia/Flash Player/SharedObjects/[RANDOM LETTERS]/[NAME OF WEBSITE]

I'd suggest checking there for any files, I can't remember if Roaming is a hidden folder by default, so you might need to show hidden folders. Copy the related files and place them on your computer. This should let you continue your game.
