Location Saved Games / Backup of savegame possible?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,
unfortunately the game has not yet the possibility to save different stages of the game (different savegames).
And it automatically saves and overwrites the only status when I exit with ESC, not only when entering a vehicle.
In combination with no undo function that renders it almost unplayable for me. After several hours game,
any game-stopper-error occurs and I have to begin from scratch. Happened already two times.

help through self-help - is there a way to backup the current savedgames?
For example just backup a folder or some files before gamestart and I would be happy.
Would be great!

PS: I have the PC Steam Version of the game on Windows 10 64Bit

Hi Jonny

This is quite easy to do, so I can help

The savefiles are located in %localappdata%\Astro\Saved  (just copy and paste the whole lot).

You can create a batchfile to automatically back it up somewhere, and you just run that before you launch the game

robocopy " %localappdata%\Astro\" "<INSERT YOUR TARGET FOLDER HERE>" /MIR

Then you save it as a .bat file.

For instance, mine would be:

robocopy %localappdata%\Astro "C:\Users\johndoe\Box Sync\Games\Astroneer" /MIR

..as I use Box for Cloud storage- this enables me to use it on another PC.

Hope this helps

Thx a lot MadiraNofo! That will help and improve a lot!
Will autmate that in the batch - first create the backup, then start the game.
Icon from the original to the batch - et voila ;-)
