    Where are the save files?

    Recently changed my computer, and now i'm running windows 7. I'm unable to find the save files to edit them when playing divine wind... it sucks.
    The Argentines collapse in defeat,
    The admiralty surveys the remnants of the fleet,
    The ground beneath their feet
    Is a nautically map sheet
    as thin as paper
    while it slips away from you

    Correction, happens if you install in Program Files while UAC is activated. It will transfer the files to some sort of virtual storage, making it look like your saves are effectively gone.

    If you happened to wonder where they should be, it's supposed to be in the EU3 files somewhere. Probably labeled save games.

    For Vista, I have to push "compatibility files" in game directory on the top bar. I would guess it is similar to W7? Save games and screenshots go there.

    If you installed in the default location the two places they cane be are c:\Program Files\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis III\save games\ and c:\users\[name]\appdata\local\virtualstore\Program Files\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis III\save games\, where [name] is your Windows user name.
    Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death .... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought looks into the pit of hell and is not afraid. Thought is great and swift and free, the light of the world, and the chief glory of man. Bertrand Russell
