Want to copy it to another system (not browser) without downloading it again...

  • Probably you should specify your OS and the browsers you are using. – eL13 Aug 9 '10 at 13:35
  • Firefox on Windows XP. But if anyone would write a recipe for another OSes and browsers that would be great. – Gtx Aug 9 '10 at 18:02

Your user data can be found depending on your OS in the following directories:

Windows 7 (probably vista as well)
X:/User/YourUserName/AppData/LocalLow/id Software/quakelive
You might have to enable the show hidden files option.

Mac OS X: /Users/YourUserName/Library/Application Support/QuakeLive/quakelive/

Linux: /home/YourUserName/.quakelive/

  • Yeah thanks. That's what i wanted. BTW. You just need to copy this folder to another system's AppData and install browser plugin to start playing. – Gtx Aug 9 '10 at 17:56

You should be able to run in multiple browsers without re-downloading the data. You only need the plugin for the browser you are using, which is ~6MB download.

  • Yeah for sure, but I needed them on another computer. Thanks. – Gtx Aug 9 '10 at 17:57
  • OK, only saw this before the edit when it said browser. NP. – Corv1nus Aug 9 '10 at 18:54

For Windows 7, you can access the folder easiest by clicking the Windows Start Icon (at the bottom-left of your PC screen), and typing the following (or copy-and-pasting) into the search field:

%userprofile%/appdata/locallow/id software/quakelive/

In the AppData folder, it looks like this:


You can find many application folder in one of these folders.

For example, the Google Chrome folder is found in: %AppData%/Roaming/Google/

For future reference, the AppData folder is located in your usersname folder (where downloads and documents and pictures folders are), but it is a hidden folder.

You can turn on hidden folders to be visible by doing the following:

  1. open any Windows Explorer folder window,
  2. choose the Organize dropdown menu (in the top-right of the window),
  3. choose Folder and search options,
  4. click on the View tab, and
  5. choose Show hidden files, folders, and drives.

Hope this helps! Good luck!
