FIRST VICTORY! But no dump file to be found...


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

FIRST VICTORY! But no dump file to be found...

This is simultaneously one of the happiest and saddest moments I can remember. I have been victorious in getting the orb to the surface, and was looking forward to seeing my dump file (the one the game is supposed to create automatically for you when you win). I searched everywhere for it, including the AppData directory in my Users folder. Nothing. I assume this is because I am just playing the .zip version, and not the installer version.

So, three things:

1) Is there a way to salvage my winning character's data after the fact?
2) What can I do from now on to ensure that the.zip version actually creates winning character dump files?
3) Is there a way to view scores for past characters?

By the way, I am using the zip version because I am getting an error when trying to run the installer version.

The dump of any character (winning or dead) is found in the 'morgues' subfolder located in the folder where you unzipped the .zip file.
And by the way I've always used the .zip version.

Are you sure? I cannot find that character's name anywhere in that folder, though there are TON of others :-).

Yes, they go in there with the deaths. Sorting by date may help.
