Pretty sure MagicEngine has a "saves" directory in its root dir. That's where the saves are. There's a "states" directory too, which I assume is the save states.

Strange i copied the folder as is and the saves did not come with it. I'll double check to see if i accidentally overrided it. I know  freeDO thats not the case. Id hate to lose my hours or role playing on both systems

Search your HDD for anything with 'magic' in its name or something. Some programs like to tuck their saves away in a User folder in Windows.

This may be a silly question, but have you tried Google? :D

Specifically, if you go to Start->Run and type
Code: [Select]
%appdata% you will open your user profile's "Application Data" folder.  (This folder is normally hidden in Explorer.)
This depresses me. I feel like a goldfish right now...
