Can someone show me the way...

To transfer my saved games from one machine to another...I've been playing on D2 on my wife's computer while waiting to rebuild mine, now that it is rebuilt I want to move over my saved games. I tried copying the "saved" folder to the new install but when I run the game none of the saved characters show up....I think I was able to do this before, but I don't remember how.

well, there's two possible reasons why your characters aren't showing that way.

1. You were playing realm characters
2. You haven't patched the game to the same patch in both computers

So basically, either connect to realms with the same login and then find the characters, or then check the version of the game on the other computer and patch your new computer according to that. Otherwise, just copying the save folder is enough.

as far as i know, u should create a character by the same name on your computer (guess the same class to, but not sure), then u copy the saved file from your wife computer to your computer save folder, replacing the newly created character.
After that i believe you open the character and it should be your saved one.
Hope it helps, though not so sure about it.

Doing this is a good way to get errors in opening the files. It is better to just copy the old files (all of them for the char) into the save game file.

You should then be able to open them provided you have the same version as the one they were saved in.
