I'd like to be able to track my own progress in the game separately from my children. I've not yet purchased the game, but would like to know if it supports multiple player profiles for the sake of progress tracking (similar to how the PopCap games Plants Vs Zombies and Bejewelled 3 do).
Making a copy of the
savedata subfolder in the Scribblenauts install directory allows you to copy your current game data. You can then delete the original with the in-game tool, and use your new save.
When you want to change save states, quit Scribblenauts and swap the standard
savedata folder with your backup
The Scribblenauts install folder is either
C:\Program Files\WB Games\Scribblenauts Unlimited or
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Scribblenauts. For 64-bit, it will be in
Program Files (x86) instead.
You can have multiple saves by copying the
C:\Program Files\WB Games\Scribblenauts Unlimited folder to a new location. (If you're on a 64-bit computer, the folder will probably be in
C:\Program Files (x86) instead.)
The saves are located locally in this folder along with other game data. This will mean that you will eat up another 1.7 GB of space on your drive. Your best bet would also be to set up multiple shortcuts on your desktop and add the name for the user to this shortcut. It's not the best way to have multiple saves, but we have to work with what the creators give us.
