If you want to carry over your over your save from EGS, this guide will help you do so. The inverse of this guide is also true, and your Steam save can be transferred to the Epic Games Store, if you want.

 

Finding your Epic Games Store saves

1. Open Run from the Start Menu.
2. Copy and paste this path:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Maneater\Saved\SaveGames\

3) Click ‘OK’ to open the directory.

There should be files here. If there are none, then you no longer have your local saves from the EGS version of the game.

 

Sorting your saves

When you arrive at the Maneater directory, this is a shared directory for Epic Games Store and Steam.

The four files you want from the Epic Games Store files look like this:

__PROFILE.sav
__PROFILE_backup.sav
_maneater_save_0.sav
_maneater_save_0_backup.sav

If you purposely or accidentally started the Steam version of the game, a profile will be created here. So you’ll see additional files that look like this:

_#################_PROFILE.sav
_#################_PROFILE_backup.sav
_#################_maneater_save_0.sav
_#################_maneater_save_0_backup.sav

Note: ################# will be an actual string of numbers in your directory.

 

Backup any existing Steam saves

Whether you have progressed or not, backing up existing data before making changes is necessary.

Copy all the files in the SaveGames directory starting with ################# should be cut and pasted into a new folder, let’s call it “steam_backup” within this directory.

 

Backup the EGS saves, just in case

We’re going to be renaming the existing EGS files located here, so let’s back them up too:

Copy all the files in the SaveGames directory without the ################# prefix, and cut and paste them into a new folder within this directory, and we’ll call this “egs_backup”.

 

Rename EGS saves to Steam naming scheme

Now there is where it gets slightly tricky. Pay close attention as the underlined prefix of PROFILE files have two underlines, whereas the prefix to SAVE files have a single underline.

Rename all of the following:

  • __PROFILE.sav
  • __PROFILE_backup.sav
  • _maneater_save_0.sav
  • _maneater_save_0_backup.sav

To the following:

  • _#################__PROFILE.sav
  • _#################__PROFILE_backup.sav
  • _#################_maneater_save_0.sav
  • _#################_maneater_save_0_backup.sav

 

Start the game to confirm the transfer is complete

Now is the easy part.

Just start the game as normal, and be sure you see a “Continue” prompt on the screen. You can confirm your save is good by going to ‘Load’ and the save file will show your progression percentage, hours played, and date last played.

 

Caveat

There is one caveat of copying your Epic Games Store save to Steam, which is actually true of nearly all the games that leave exclusivity: achievements will not unlock by simply using your EGS save.

You will have to re-earn the achievements by playing a new save game.
