For Ember Knights players, this guide will show you how to copy your friends save file to get around the fact that only the host gets progress in multiplayer.
Where to find it, and how to copy.
The host needs to follow this directory found below.
Either go to…
C Drive -> Program Files -> Steam -> Steamapps -> Common -> Emberknights -> EmberKnights 64 Data -> Save Data
Or simply copy and paste the below into your directory…
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\EmberKnights\EmberKnights_64_Data\SaveData
Once in the save data folder copy rog.dat and send it to the person who wants a copy of that save file. Discord is the easiest way, but you can send it any way you want. Note the Syntax above might be a bit different depending on your operating system, but the general path should roughly be the same.
From this point on this is all from the perspective of the guest. The host does not need to do any of this.
Once the guest has received the rog.dat file, make sure the game is closed and have the guest paste it into their save data folder, replacing the old one if there is one.
Next the guest needs to go to their library -> right click on Ember Knights -> Properties -> Turn off Steam Sync for Ember Knights. This will stop the game from trying to load the guests old save file in the cloud when you boot the game back up.
The guest should now load up the game. Check to make sure you have any unlocks/ember that you unlocked while playing with the host by going to the compendium and the ember tree. If everything you want is there, leave the game running -> go to steam library -> right click ember knights -> turn steam sync back on. Then close the game using the games menus. This will prompt steam to upload your current save to the cloud replacing any old save you might have had.
If the above process doesn’t work, then try again but instead of just closing the game after checking, try doing a run and dying. Then close the game.
