Where are the city save game files?

Postby maddermanblue » 15 October 2010, 00:09

Hi all,

My first post, do you know where the city game save files are? I looked in the main Cities XL 2011 directory, an empty folder called 'save', there is also a 'save' folder in the 'data' folder but that's empty too. I have looked in my documents etc.. any ideas?

I want to be able to backup my cities and occasionally swap saved cities between 2 PC's, depending where I am so I can play with one city. Used to be able to sync with XL 2009, but cannot find that now....

Cheers

Blue

I have found those files and transferred them between the 09 edition and the 11 edition but the cities do not show up in the new game.

I own the Steam version and there was no option to import my cities and I thought this would help. Am I missing a step?

Here is posted a very detailed guide for transferring cities manually:

Thanks that worked, yet the game lags horribly when I load it up. I estimate a 2-4 second delay when clicking an icon before getting a response. I absolutely love the game, but this is annoying.

Isn't that just for the Cities XL 2009?

I think for CitiesXL 2011 the savegames are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2011\live\offline\solo

At least in XP 32bit

I think I found it for Windows 7 x64:
C:\Users\[your name]\AppData\Local\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2011\live\offline\
Make sure hidden folders are visible.
However, I can't find the actual save files. Are they possibly inside other files?
