Where are my maps saving to?

Post by JonK17 »

Hi, in my my_stuff/packages/base folder all that is in it is a text document called Placeholder. Anyone know where my maps are saving to? Thanks.

I will include a screenshot of the folder

Did you save if you did
try packages/base/(whatever gamemode you did) it should be there

looks to me like you didn't save it. I have been wrong though. Open a newmap and save it. THen go look at this folder again.

I have saved trust me, when i search my computer for the map names they appear in a folder called C:\Users\Jon\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Sandbox RPG\PlatinumArtsSandbox2.6.1\my_stuff\packages\base\rpg. However when i go to \my_stuff\packages\base\rpg my maps are not there. any suggestions?

right click the click_me_to_start.bat file. Copy and paste the code in that file here. Is this windows 7?

64 Bit? x86 = 64 bit.

Try placing these files in "mystuff/packages/base/", I don't know why on earth it saved the maps in the AppData folder.

Yeah, My suggestion would be to create a shortcut to that folder through the "my_stuff/packages" folder, one for each mode.
