Yup, I think the App Store -thing is the root issue here.

 

Running locate doesn't find me anything useful, hopefully some other mac user can help!

 

Anyway, thank you for trying to help me :)

Hey sorry I'm a little late. Not sure if you've solved the problem already or decided to restart without your old files, but anyway...

 

From what I can tell the save files seem to be stored in ~/Library/Caches/unity.Red Thread Games.Dreamfall Chapters aka /Users/{username}/Library/Caches/unity.Red Thread Games.Dreamfall Chapters

 

So, from a terminal window: cd ~/Library/Caches/unity.Red\ Thread\ Games.Dreamfall\ Chapters/ 

 

All three files that were in the original ~/.config/RedThreadGames\\DreamfallChapters/ directory are also in this new directory (the "Autosave" dir, Social.data, & StoryFlags.data) 

 

I did a quick play test in game to let it make an autosave and the time of the save file and the "Date Modified" attribute on "Autosave" match (along with a new file added into that directory) so it seems like the game is saving into that folder.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you, isThatAHippo, I've added that location to the FAQ.

Thank you! I actually ended giving up and starting the game from beginning. Didn't really even cross my mind to check cache! Not did 'locate' reveal that. Hmm.

 

Anyway, thank you so much for solving this, I'm sure I'm not the only one who will run into this problem at some point.

Question for Windows - I have no redthreadgames folder in my roaming folder or otherwise. Do I need to run and save the game first for this to be created?

Possibly, but you can just create the folders manually as well. It's the LocalLow location that's current, though, you can find the exact path in the FAQ.

I found my saves in c:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\LocalLow\Red Thread Games\Dreamfall Chapters\Autosave\

(Win7)
