Migrating from Linux to Windows - saved games?

Post by Icarium »


I've recently updated my computer system from Linux (Ubuntu based) to Windows. I have many saved Wesnoth campaign games that I'd like to bring to my new system also.

However, I'm quite unfamiliar with Linux in general and I don't know where to find these save game files that I want to move to the new Windows system. Could anybody help me telling how to do this?

Thanks in advance,

The save games should be in ~/.wesnoth/saves/.

In your user/home folder that is.

I have ubuntu, and for me it is:

Code: Select all

Why would you migrate from ubuntu to windows anyway? :?

Note: I don't want to start a linux vs. windows discussion.
