Preserving game data

I am changing computers, how do I keep the game data that I had?

I mean, I don't want to have to save Princess Toadstool again, or have to restart other games at the very first level.

Help.

Re: Preserving game data

Press Windows + R to open a Run Prompt.
Paste
%temp%\low\arcadeox
press enter.

If folder not found change it to
%temp%\arcadeox
and press enter again.

Your saves and settings etc are there. Back up everything and restore to the same location on your next computer.

So, thanks to ur guidance I was able to copy the game data, but I can't figure out where to save it in the new computer. Any suggestions?

Re: Preserving game data

If you download arcadeox on your new computer, it should make the arcadeox folder. So you would just paste all your copied stuff and put it in that folder.

Did you try playing a game? Also could try sending in a score.

Play a game first.

Then
Press Windows + R to open a Run Prompt.
Paste
%temp%\low\arcadeox
press enter.

If folder not found change it to
%temp%\arcadeox
and press enter again.
