The mystery of the missing save games
I noticed this about a month ago, that for some reason my save game in gemcraft labrynth was gone. and i saw some comments “try it in another browser”. So i closed down chrome and loaded up the dreaded IE. And low and behold my save was still there. So i just played this way for a while. Checking back every few days to see if Chrome was working again or not. And it still wasnt. So i decided to try a few things.
I backed up my GCL save, then deleted the originals. Which would force chrome to make new saves. So i loaded up the game, made a new save file, and played a map to ensure that it saved the data. And went back to the usual place…
and found…nothing. there were no GCL saves. So i loaded up the game again to see if my save was gone. And no it was still there. So Chrome was still saving…but where? that was the question. So i did a system search and found…
C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Pepper Data\Shockwave Flash\WritableRoot\#SharedObjects\GHJRAFS4\chat.kongregate.com
…so i copied my backed up save to this folder, and boom, my old save was back and usable in chrome, BUT will likely no longer be accessible in IE and FF. So its up to yall whether this helps.
