I'm use Chrome sometimes to play the flash games, but I notice that Chrome no longer stores the .sol files in the same location Firefox does (if Chrome is even storing them at all). Where/how does Chrome handle the .sol files, I want to know so I can back up my local flash gaming saves when I play in Chrome.

I found this.

A few months ago a Chrome update caused Chrome to stop saving .sol files at all. Try updating your Chrome if the link doesn't do anything.

So if I'm in Chrome there is no .sol file at all?

That seems like what happened. I the link took me to a site with a bunch of removed photobucket pictures and a navigation to the .sol files (or where they usually are). Was that the proper site?

How does Chrome remember my data?

I think it stores it in the cache if I'm not mistaken. Don't hold my word on that one, not a chrome user.

Thanks, I never considered that. To my inexperienced ear that sounds right.

While it does depend on the browser, you can usually find .sol files in shared objects in flash player.
To get there go to run, or click windows key + R, and copy&paste this path directory;
C:\\Users\\USERNAME\\AppData\\Roaming\\Macromedia\\Flash Player\\#SharedObjects
From there you can find every save file you locally stored on your computer.

For some unknown reason my path directory decided to put two slashes instead of one -.-'

simple fix, instead of all the double slashes put only one and your username in there and it should lead you to victory.

This is the thing, I played battle for darkness in Firefox at around 2 pm. Later,  I played the game in chrome at around 6 pm. I then navigated to the .sol file and noticed that it was last modified at 2:03pm. There was only one .sol file. TO me this indicates that Firefox saves the .sol files locally in that specific location while Chrome does something different.

Chrome uses a different storage folder...
(Just replace UserName by ur Username)

C:\\Users\\UserName\\AppData\\Local\\Google\\Chrome\\User Data\\Default\\Pepper Data\\Shockwave Flash\\WritableRoot\\#SharedObjects

Cheers!!!
