So, I've been getting into this beautiful gem of a game again (So happy it's on Steam now! :woohoo:), and I wanted to skip ahead of act 0 and most of act 1, since I recently played past those parts before I got the Steam version. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any instructions on how to use the save file I downloaded. Could someone please explain for me?

Overthinking is kind of a habit of mine.

Just put the .sav file into the "saves" folder inside the game.

If there is not saves folder, create one and put the file in there. :)

Space. The final frontier.

Thank you, Sir, and thank you very much for restoring one of my favorite sites on the web! I must say it looks much more... modern, for lack of a better word.

However, this did not work at first, for some reason. I used "verify integrity of game cache" within Steam, and it downloaded most of the game's files again. It turns out that many of them were missing!

So, I try it again, and it still doesn't work. Was it supposed to go in the main game directory?

Not exactly in the main directory, it goes into

C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Independence War 2 - Edge of Chaos/saves/

I probably should have specified, but I already tried that.

I guess there isn't much hope of this method working. I recall there being a way to skip forward in the story using a setting in flux.ini. Do you know what it is?

I just checked - some of the gamesaves aren't named correctly.

Make sure to put it in the save folder and rename it to "savegame0.sav" - it loaded for me then. I got a save file called "savegame06.sav" which didn't work without renaming.
