Sharing a saved file issue?

So, a player recently played Xanadu 2 and, through no fault of his own, managed to get stuck at the very end of the game and couldn't progress. It's a hidden bug-a-boo that I am working on figuring out.

Anyway, he shared his save file with me. It is a .quest file. I get an error message when trying to open it. I played the game to the point where he was stuck and returned a save file (.quest) to him. By the way, I have played the last 5% of the game after sending him the save file and it finished correctly without issue.

My anticipation is this... since I had an error opening his save file on my system, will he have the same problem opening mine? And is there a workaround to this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Does the error message say anything informative?

Are you using the same version of Quest?

Are you using the same version of Quest?

Both excellent questions. I’ll post error message in a bit. Didn’t consider different quest versions. Thanks.

Here is the error message I get when trying to load his game...

Failed to load game.
The following errors occurred:
Error: Could not find a part of the path 'C:\Users\PaulB\Documents\Quest Games\Downloaded Games\Xanadu - In the Compound -'.

You guys have the main game in differently named folders, so the paths are different.

C:\Users\PaulB\Documents\Quest Games\Downloaded Games\Xanadu - In the Compound -

Mine would be C:\Users\KV\Documents\Quest Games\Downloaded Games\Xanadu - In the Compound -

Open the save game in a text editor, change the user name, and see what happens.

Thanks, Dick Head!!
