I cant find my save game folder

Recommended Posts

iraq 4ever

Hi there,

I tried to find my savegame location as I'm backing up my files, however it seems that there is a problem with finding them. I saved the game, and expect the files to be in My Documents/GTA VC User Files, but the folder isn't even there.


I tried looking in the AppData folders and Steam/userdata folders, but no cure there either. The only thing I hit a brick wall with was the Steam Cloud, and the question is, could my save game be on the Steam Cloud? I tried disabling it and reinstalling the game, but with no success. If it is on the Steam Cloud, is there anyway I can get back my save game?

Please help

:cry: :cry: :cry:

They could be located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\GTA Vice City User Files, this is where saved games will be stored if you run in Windows 98 compatibility mode.

I have Windows 7 but I run the game in Windows 98 compatibility mode because my mouse doesn't work otherwise and that is on Steam too. The easiest way to find out where the save file is located, simply go on Start menu and type "gtavc" and it should find a save file, which is written like this: "gtavcsf1.s", right click and click "Open file location" and it will direct you to the location of the save file.

 

Like this:

If Windows doesn't find such file name, then most likely, it is not stored on your computer. It is a possibility that the Steam Cloud you speak of, stores the game's save file. I know nothing about Steam Cloud, I am afraid so I will leave that to someone else to help you out with that.

I know this comes a bit late but I also have issues finding my savefiles. I'm on Windows 10 and I played the game in Windows 98 mode because it runs more safe  in this mode but the game always crashed when I completed the mission "Riot" (the one at the beginning where you have to start a fight within a riot and then blow up the three trucks). So I searched online for a solution and someone said I should put the game into Windows XP mode and some other things that don't matter at this point. But when I change the compatibility mode from 98 to XP my savegame just disappears from the game and I can't find it anywhere. It's not in GTA Vice City User Files and I can't even find it by using the search bar. I could start the game over but it would be a bit frustrating because I would have to do the firefighter and paramedic missions all over again among other things. Would be nice to know what's going on with that.
