Hi there, twice now I've started a new game because AC Black Flag can't hold on to my save games. I'm not in the mood to waste another 12 hours, so how can one use a downloaded save game? Not hard to find 25% sync save games around the web, which would be nice place to start for someone like me (I'm replaying).

There is no "Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\savegames", that information seems to be out of date.

I've tried the "Users\<usernsame>\Documents\Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag" but that didn't work.

Oddly enough, the companion app holds the fleet information even after a year wihtout play. Black Flag itself can't seem to do it for 5 hours.

Thanks in advance. My game is also from Steam and Gold Edition, if that makes any difference.

Edited:

Well, now thats just peachy. Just went in game, killed Duncan Walpole just to make a save game, re-opened it and save wasn't there. Game is not saving anymore. Unplayable. Thanks UPlay.

Hello,

Its not possible to use any other saves since saves are encrypted per user account and cannot be shared, however, you can find AC4 saves at:

[UPlay Installation Folder]\savegames\[ACCOUNT_ID]\273

Path with default install location for UPlay:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\savegames\[ACCOUNT_ID]\273

since you cannot find the path in your original post, then i suspect you have installed UPlay on different drive than C.

if the game is not saving anymore, uninstall UPlay, download latest version from http://www.uplay.com and install, then try again (run UPlay as administrator)

NOTE: AC4 doesnt support cloud saves, so make sure to take manual saves backups periodically.

I have UPlay installed in the default path, however there is no savegames folder.

I'm re-installing it now.
