I'm trying to transfer all my files over from my laptop, which is slow and laggy, to my newer desktop, which is nice and fast. I want to be able to play Skyrim on it. I've been looking into how to transfer the game over to it, but all the answers I find are how to move the save files and access them after, etc. That's good, but my current question is how to get the game on my new computer?
I saw one reply to someone that you have to install it. Ok, that makes sense. But do I have to pay for a whole new version of Skyrim? Or how would I just install the one I already bought a couple years ago? I don't have it on Steam, though I'm not sure why since I thought I remembered buying it on there. A little confused about that cause I have Skyrim Script Extender on there. Is this what I'm looking for?
The desktop is running Ubuntu, I've installed WINE already, and I'm not sure if I need to get anything else. My laptop is running Windows 10 and it's messed up so I can't use it, but I refuse to lose my Skyrim saves!
Not moving it to a different folder within the computer, but moving it from an entirely different computer using an entirely different OS.
