Portable Saves?

Post by ChairmanKevin » Mon Jan 12, 2015 11:12 pm

Hey there ! I'm pretty new to this forum and the novel, so I might have done something wrong pls dont get mad ty. Anyways, I really like this visual novel I think it's really cool ! But one thing that I'm having a problem with is the fact that I cant run this in a lot of places. (Ex. school, work, etc.) right, so I installed KS onto one of my USBs, and it works perfectly fine. Thing is, that I don't know where the saves go. So the question I have is that I'm wondering if there's a way to keep all the saves onto my single USB rather than having it misplaced somewhere deep within the computer? Thanks :)

You should be able to just put %appdata% in the search bar and then open the RenPy folder though.

The files there are pretty self-explanatory once you get to the right folder.
This should solve your problem.

EDIT: The version number may vary depending on whether you have the latest version or not.

If I see that sentence anywhere I am going to send your head to your mother with a replacment order
If you like a moodier fanfic, why not try mine?

Hi ! This works for me at home, as I can find my saves and things like that, but considering I have a lot of free time at school, having lunch/spares, I can't necessarily do that. Trying to find %appdata% doesn't seem to work, probably being hidden by system admin or something. Do you know if there's a way to path the save to elsewhere in the computer?

You can script moving all saves to USB by creating .bat file with this text:
move %appdata%\RenPy\katawashoujo_actual_1.2\* %YourUSBDriveSavesFolder%\
Instead of %YourUSBDriveSavesFolder% type folder which you can sacrifice on USB for your saves.
For launching the game you need to move saves back. Do it from this command:
move %YourUSBDriveSavesFolder%\* %appdata%\RenPy\katawashoujo_actual_1.2\
And then launch game.
****Warning****
You need folder %appdata%\RenPy\katawashoujo_actual_1.2\ to be empty, or it will crash move command. Then, no one can play this game on this PC anymore without unexpected errors and other people saves loaded for you.

You can try to use full path: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\RenPy\katawashoujo_actual_1.2\
