I’m having some difficulty finding my Saved games and User folder for Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crisis.
I am running Windows 7 32 bit Home edition on a Toshiba laptop.
I installed the game to its default location (C:Program Files\Codemasters) using the original CD purchased back in 2001 and patched the game to the latest version 1.96. The game runs perfectly fine, and I have played through the campaigns so I know that my progress is being saved somewhere on my hard drive. I also wanted to play some fan-generated missions, and wanted to created a sub-directory as stated in the Avon Lady’s excellent post on the subject (this was a few years ago where she suggested creating a sub-folder within the USER folder). I did this on a previous computer running XP and had no problems finding the folders.
Under Windows 7, I cannot find the USER folder anywhere. I read all the posts I could find on the subject, and they all seem to be variations on allowing different permissions to see folders OR finding the OFP USER folder under C:Users. I have full administrator rights on my computer (and indeed the administrator is the “owner” of the OFP folder), and I have enabled the “show hidden files, folders, and drives” under the View Folders option. I also enabled the “view system protected files” option and looked at every folder under C:Users and C:Progarm files\Codemasters but still I cannot find the saved games or user folder for OFP.
I am considering simply uninstalling and re-installing the game but I want to make sure that any orphan left-over folders are deleted before I re-install. Any help in locating the missing folders would be greatly appreciated (again, I know they are somewhere on my hard drive because my progress in the game is being saved).
