Help with saved games

Post by missidk on Sat 17 Nov 2012, 14:12

After re-installing the original sims and patching all my sims expansions i cracked all the games i then installed seasons and cracked that. the game works perfectly, but i cant seem to put my old save games into the game. When i play the game and save a game i dont know where the saved game is going. It is not going to user/documents/electronic arts/sims 3/saves

Where else could it be going? I've searched my entire macbook. If someone could figure this out, i would be able to copy my old saved games and put them into that folder where ever it is...

Did you copy your saved games before removing the sims 3 somewhere while re-installing?

Well, it has to be there unless you have deleted it. Have you tried to look for it with Spotlight?

Then you deleted it by mistake or something because when you uninstall the game, it erases everything unless you've saved it.
So... I don't think you have that folder anymore. Sorry Sad

Don't you back up your files with Time Machine or something like that? It's a stupid question but maybe the time capsule save it in a back up copy :/
