Transfer Elite save games or memory state between computers

Postby chipowski » Fri Jun 15, 2018 12:02 pm

Hi.
I've been playing Elite in Hatari on a windows machine and am trying to continue the same game on a mac.
I can edit the paths in my .cfg file and that works fine but if I try and load a memory state it fails cause of file paths defined in the .sav.
I can't edit the .sav file as it comes up as a garbled mess if I try and open the file.

So, is there a way I can edit the .sav file?
Or, is it possible to copy my Elite save games between computers?

Not to worry I found out how to do this.
The save games are written to the game rom so it's just a case of copying the rom between machines.

If it wa a ROM you couldn't save :P

But yes, you can simply use the in-game save/restore mechanism to save to your disk image.
