Can't find .c4s file location

Postby floridafairy » Wed May 29, 2013 2:58 pm

I have a windows 7 OS. I have installed and am playing Caesar IV. I have upgraded to 1.2 successfully.

I am searching for a game file that I am currently playing - to no avail. I have tried the following locations:

Trying to find game files:
C:\Program Files\Sierra\Caesar IV\Data (no files or folders)

C:\Program Files\Sierra\Caesar IV\Data\Saved Games (no files in this folder at all)

C:\Sierra (only Master of Olympus folder)

C:\Users\Ruth\Saved Games (only Microsoft Games folder here)

C:\Users\Ruth\Documents\Tilted Mill (only Children of the Nile folder here)

search for any .c4s files yielded no results

Can anyone out there help me? Is there some way that the file folder/files be hidden for some strange reason? That is the only explanation I can come up with. My program runs off of the CD disk, but that certainly would not be where a game file was saved. I can't find any of the saved games..... HELP!

Nowadays developers should use My Documents, but for older games Win 7 often puts these sort of things into virtual store

In your case probably here:

C:\Users\RUTH\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Sierra\Caesar IV\Data\Saved Games

Tip: Put a link on your desktop to find them quickly
