[edit] Save Game Locations

  Location 
Windows %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\FasterThanLight\prof.sav[1]
Mac OSX ~/Library/Application Support/FasterThanLight/prof.sav
Linux ~/.local/share/FasterThanLight/

[edit] Save Game Files

The file prof.sav contains unlocked ships and game preferences.

The file continue.sav is generated when pressing 'Save & Quit'.

  • No save file is generated if pressing only 'Quit'.
  • If one dies or wins the game, the file is automatically deleted as is standard in roguelike games.

[edit] Cloud Syncing

Natively supported by GameSave Manager.

Dropbox can be used to sync game save files. By using Dropbox you can jump back to previous savestates or recover your continue.sav at any time. You just have to move your FasterThanLight folder to the Dropbox and create a symbolic link in its original location.

BitTorrent Sync can also be used to sync game save folders across operating systems. Just set up the respective folders to sync together via the same secret.
