Is there a way to specify the save game location for Avernum 1? I have set up a save directory in my Avernum folder which works great except that every time I start the game it starts looking for saves in the My Documents folder. I don't want to clutter up My Documents with Avernum save games, but it takes several selections to get to the correct folder (on a different drive). Thankfully, after I get to the proper folder, I don't have to do that again until I quit and restart. Still I would like to permanently set the location to find saves. Can that be done through an entry in an .ini or .dat file or some other way?

Er, the best thing I can think of is to use the menu at the top of that save pop-up to go to the Recent Folders and from there select the folder in which you want to save. Then it's only one click.

OK, I probably should have mentioned I am using Win98. It takes me 6 clicks: look in, d drive, games, avernum, saves, and then select the save game I want. Sure, I could change my folder set up to make this easier, but this is the way I save most of my games.

At least Avernum doesn't force them to be saved in a Documents folder or "My Games" folder. And it is good that the game remembers the location during a session. I only have to do this when I start a session. Still, I sure wish you could set the location as a preference option or by editing a .ini file or something similar.

Do this:

Make a shortcut to your saved games directory

Then paste shortcut in avernum's default save folder

Then when you go to save a game just click the shortcut

get it?

Thanks Pyro. Not very elegant, but your workaround gets the job done.
