Starting ep16 back up save files will now be kept according to the set Options, but existing save files are set to 0 by default. Please check your Options and enable backups! I decided to make this thread pretty much because I realised we don't have a thread in bug reporting that explains how to use these properly and I explain kind of poorly when I explain it in the unstuck me thread, so now I can write this in detail once and for all and just link to the thread. So, person who needs to know how to use a back up save for reasons including save file corruption, encountering the books books (and deciding to use the safe option of a back up), accidentally trading away a pokemon or item or just being told by someone that their issue requires the use of one, here is how you do it. Step 1: Go into the folder with your save file in it. You can find this in your C drive: Users: [your username]: Saved Games: Pokemon Reborn. If you can't find this folder check out the how to locate your save file thread. 2: You'll see a number of RPGXP Data files in the format of Number- Your Name- Your playtime- Your number of badges. These are your back up save files and what you're interested in (You'll only have back ups for your playthrough obviously. In the photo there are lots of random names because of save files I fixed). Locate the highest numbered back up save. For me it would be number 286 (seen in photo). 3: Take the file you chose in step 2. It is what you're going to use for this. You'll see a file called Game.rxdata in this folder. It is your save file. Turning your back up into the save file is very simple. Delete (or move) the current Game.rxdata file (don't worry this won't make you have to start over or anything- if you're worried about this you can paste your file elsewhere so you can just put it back if something goes wrong in this process but nothing will go wrong). Then rename the highest numbered backup you created Game.rxdata (make sure you name it exactly as 9/10 when people report something going wrong with this it is because they have not named the file correctly. I couldn't think of any need for a picture here so I decided I'd just put on of what your save file looks like. So I hope this helps. If anything is unclear don't hesitate to ask for clarification. Also if the pictures don't work for some people let me know and I'll reupload them on Imgur rather than lightshot. Mde2001 Additional future edits and clarifications For Macintosh, the save files are stored at: ~/Library/Application Support/Pokemon Reborn/Game.rxdata Mac users may need to use cmd + shift + [.] to see hidden files, as Mac may hide saves. Or, use a program like Find Any File For Linux, the saves are at: ~/.local/share/Pokemon Reborn The general process should be the same for either of those as above When maintaining multiple save files, you can replace a different slot by renaming to Game_2.rxdata, Game_3.rxrdata, etc, instead.
