I want to transfer my saved game to another computer, but cant find pers2.dat. A search gave me no results. And the adress given at the faq page ( was wrong.


Yes!  All you need to do is copy the saved game file which is named pers2.dat.  On Windows XP, it lives in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo. On Vista the file is located in C:\ProgramData\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo.  Copy it from one computer into the appropriate location on the other computer and voila!

ok, you need to open the Run dialog on the start menu and type in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\2DBoy. If you try to navigate your way there through the folders then you won't find it because it's hidden.

I found it by changing the settings to show hidden folders and then going step by step.
The adress was different due to country specific Windows.

Norwegian Windows
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Programdata\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo

FYI: I found on WinXP Pro that the pers2.dat file was stored under the following folder.

C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo\
