Forum:Vulture save files

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm new to Nethack and saved my first game without realizing that I would need to remember my character's name to load it again. I stupidly gave it a last name which I don't remember at all. I'm using Vulture and Windows 7, and after about an hour of googling I've utterly failed to find the save files that Vultures has been making, or any sort of log files or anything like that. If anyone could help me find my save it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 20:43, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

The files are located wherever Vulture's was installed. Look for filenames like "<Username>-<Nethack name>-saved-game", where <Username> is your Windows username (e.g. your real name), and <Nethack name> is whatever you used to start the game. -- Qazmlpok 22:41, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
Qazmlpok this is incorrect. For me the directory was "C:\Users\AccountName\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Vulture-Nethack". If you still can't find the files I suggest you search your whole drive for files whose filename contain the name of one of your characters. -- 02:05, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
