Title: Simple Question About World Transfering
Post by: DatAwesomenessDoe on January 24, 2017, 07:28:33 PM
So I just yanked out a copy of my Total Miner data onto a usb since I heard data can be transferred to the Pc edition when it goes into early access (Or whenever it does). But being the nub I am, i have no clue how to do that. I'm not asking anyone to instruct me how to do that on here, but I was just wondering if there is or will be a basic tutorial around transferring stuff from 360 to Pc, like a dev tutorial or something when the early access launches, and if not then will there be at any point in time? Anyways, that's all I had to ask (And Pc hype ftw!), stay awesome.

Also, feel free to let me know if there's already a post on this!

PC reads the same files as xbox, so simply drag out the files through horizon and place them in your maps folder,

here is a rough rundown of the process, I'm sure a more in depth guide will be created soon.

Quote
Craig: when you open the xbox file, somewhere there will be a folder called Maps
Craig: in that folder are subfolders named with numbers
Craig: each one of those numbered folders is an individual map
Craig: locate your folder on your PC for the steam TM save data, will look something like this:

Craig: and just copy the respective numbered folder from the xbox file to the maps folder there
Craig: run the game and select refresh world index

An in-depth guide has been created (i created it) but as it was for the testers, and back when PC was in first development, it isnt really public yet. I'd assume once PC is released, it will be aswell.

Well it kinda worked. Not all of my worlds will show up in horizon, but thanks anyway!
