Where Are My KotOR 2 saved games?

I was planning to transfer some KotOR 2 saves to a different computer. I have successfully done this in the past with other games by going to the save game location in windows explorer and moving/copying the save file.

However, when I go to C:/Program Files (x86)/LucasArts/SWKotOR2/Saves, I see two folders: 000001 - AUTOSAVE and 000002 - Game1.

In each folder are the standard .res files and such, plus the SAVEGAME sav file.

But there is nothing about the 3 different characters I have and multiple saves for each.

When I start up the game itself, though, I can load saved games from there just fine. I just can't find them in Windows Explorer!

What is going on? I'm running Kotor 2 Windows 7 64-bit in Windows XP Compatibility Mode.

Thank you for your help!

I'm running mine on the same system, The file won't show the info about your characters, However if you have those folders, Chances are your character saves are in those folders!!

Now the folders files should be unhidden. Just follow the folder path to your game save.

(Republic Command Saves are also located in the above file path)

I have recently been trying to find out why kotor2 has problems with some cheats not being able to be activated by using the ` symbol for some pc users.
this also was not working for some kotor1 user aswell.

by instead following the commands here which has been mentioned by our good freind yoda327 u can change the swkotor.ini file there by right selcting edit and apply the EnableCheats=1 in this file and save.

This has changed al the problems and i have made a triumpht discovery :thmb up1:

That's only if you're not an administrator. If you are, they are just under \saves\ in the root folder...

For most they are there, thus.
