Poo… am having the same issue! I guess I will have to restart as well. All that effort for nothing!

any way to get games to save locally?

Do you mean save to your account instead of to your computer? They currently save to your computer, and to play the data on another you must transfer it.

Thank you for the youtube link, and I did indeed try that, but it is still less convenient than having the site save my stuff for me :P

perhaps as a reward per your account level?

Bragging rights among friends (basically all there is currently). Apparently there was supposed to be something else with points, but I’m doubting it being widely accepted.

There was some mention way earlier in this suggestion log (dating back a couple years) about trying to find something useful for points and levels… and I agree, if they still haven’t done anything, they probably never will.

Save games take up a hundred bytes, or so. Much easier than trying to find where the games are being saved and porting it around on a flash drive.

Hundreds of bytes? That’s nothing, modern computers can come with up to 2TB (which is 2,000GB, 2,000,000MB, 2,000,000,000KB, 2,000,000,000,000B, I fail too see what you mean by bytes being limited), with additional external hard drives available up to 1TB each (do the math, see where your logic is flawed). If you are concerned with game data being too much, delete old data from games you beat and no longer want to play. If you’re saying they’re making your system run slowly, upgrade your RAM. And finally, data can be transferred via email, flash drive is not necessary.

Note, byte values may not be 100% accurate, as I know that 1KB = 1,024B, and such, I was simply rounding.

Every operating system uses a different algorithm for assessing how much space is on a drive (based on the file system, actually). 1kb is supposed to be 1000 bytes, according to the metric moniker, but it ends up really as 1024 due to the binary base. Where it gets confusing is when you start talking about communication and how it gets counted in “bits” and isn’t always 8 per byte. Anyway, the point of mentioning the small value of the save files, is to make the point that it would really take up less space server side than an email. So… storing the save files for thousands of users would really not take any huge amount of resources (meaning nothing new would really have to be purchased on part of Kongregate or Gamestop). Only one GB would be needed store 10 to 20 save files for 1 million users, or so.

okay, so, haven’t read through all 390 pages of this suggestion list, but…. any way to get games to save locally? perhaps as a reward per your account level? Save games take up a hundred bytes, or so. Much easier than trying to find where the games are being saved and porting it around on a flash drive. :D

Topic: General Gaming / portable save files?

nope… didn’t do it… I copied the whole “sys” folder from the macromedia profile on my computer and exchanged it with the one on another computer. No good… The game I am playing in particular is that Epic Battle Fantasy 3 game, if it happens to store the save files somewhere else. Please let me know what else I might be able to do… thanks!

cool! Thanks for the tip… I’ve located where *.sol files are stored and moved those to my thumb drive, too. I’ll copy the files over to the next computer and see what happens. :-D

Topic: General Gaming / portable save files?

Just wondering over the vast array of games, if there is a way to store the cached saved files on a portable version of firefox (via usb drive) or other means of portable device so that I can play my games on one computer and continue said saved game on another computer. I got firefox portable on a usb drive now, but it still stores cache locally on each computer and has no option to change it to the usb drive. Will a portable hard drive work using firefox and changing the cache drive to the portable? just wondering if anybody else has thought about this…. I think Kongregate should have a way for members to store their saved files, kind of like email sites give free space for storing emails… any other thoughts?
