So im working on a puzzle game, im wanting to bring to over save file progress history from the first game into the sequel. You know in a way that the 2nd game checks on your progress from the first game. So if you completed the first game, you get rewarded for it.
My road block is how stency games handle's saving & loading,
by default it's location is C:\Users\"your user name"\AppData\Roaming\Stencyl\Puzzlegame#1,
the new game is in \AppData\Roaming\Stencyl\Puzzlegame#2

Is it possible to change the default save file location?

There's likely to be a way around it, even if you need to write some custom code. I think the bigger issue is going to be knowing where the user installed the previous game. You can't assume it's in AppData.

The easiest solution may just be to let the player import their save data manually.
