I'll be doing a fresh install on my daughter's computer shortly.

She has Sims (up to Making Magic) and Sims 2 installed.

I'm trying to figure out how to save Saved Games but so far the files are eluding me.

In The Sims, in the Maxis folder, I think all the odd looking files in main folder may be saved games. Are they?

But in Sims 2, I have no idea. There seem to be saved items (such as houses) in several folders.

Is it possible to save Saved Games in either of these titles.

I would (well, Faye would) really apreciate some help here.

Yes they are ... also check each users MyDocuments folder as they will be save independently.

Thank you chaps

Right there under my nose, doh.....

Only the one user, so that ok.

I assume if I just paste the contents of the Sims 2 folder into a fresh install, all saved games will be in there again?

As for Sims 1, I'm going to assume all the files I mentioned earlier in the Maxis folder are saved games, I can't think what else they could be.

And, Mr Mucks, don't give me none of that twas a legitimate question

I think it should be ok to paste in afterwards, I've done that before on my sisters and it worked ok from what I remember.

Some games cannot save properly on Vista or Wins 7. Try installing the game on the desktop. I had to do this for League of Legends.
