Where to Save and Load Files

Posted 10 September 2012 - 11:51 AM

I found a number of tutorials on where to save the game save states with containers, but I can not find out the best places for my installer to place level files? Especially if I would like users to be able to edit the files, I know Windows 7 does not allow access to Program Files? So where do you recommend that we save level files to (so we can edit them later)? Also, I need to know how to handle XBOX 360 as well.

User's document folder is a good choice.
{user}\Documents\SavedGames\{gamename} They can then see it so they can move it another computer when they migrate or when they do a system backup.

Or the AppData folder for your application application.
{bootvolume}:\Users\{username}\AppData\Roaming\{companyname}\{productname}\

Look at the SpecialFolders enum on MSDN
