How to Upload Saves to Your PalWorld Server

Ensuring that your local save files are correctly uploaded to your PalWorld server is crucial to continue your gaming journey seamlessly. This comprehensive guide will walk you through the process of uploading your saves, verifying their integrity, and getting back to the action.

Step 1: Starting and Stopping the Server

Begin by getting your server online and starting it. Wait until the server status displays as "online."

Once the server is online, stop it gracefully.

Step 2: Locating the Save Directory

Navigate to the following directory on your server: /Pal/Saved/SavedGames/0/9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1 These numbers are just for example, this will NOT match your folder that contains your save information.

- Note down the folder name that follows the "/0/," which contains a combination of numbers and letters. This string is essential for later use.

Step 3: Preparing Your Local Save Files

On your local computer, locate your PalWorld save files.

Compress the entire save folder into a zip file. Ensure that all the necessary save files, including auto saves and manual saves, are included in the zip archive.

Step 4: Accessing Your Local Save Files

Open the Run dialog on your computer by holding down the "Windows" key and pressing "R."

In the dialog box, type %appdata% and press "Enter." This will open the local, local low, or roaming directory, depending on your system configuration.

Navigate to the "Local" folder within this directory.

Scroll down to locate the "Pal" folder, and open it.

Inside the "Pal" folder, locate and open the "Saved" directory.

Open the "SavedGames" folder.

You will see a folder named with your Steam 64 ID. Click on it to access your save games.

Step 5: Identifying Your Save

To identify your most recent save, log into your single-player game or relevant gameplay mode.

Return to the title screen. This action will save your game, allowing you to determine the modified date of your latest save.

In your local save folder, look for the save with the corresponding modified date. This is your most recent save.

Right-click on your most recent save and compress it into a zip file. Make sure to use the zip format, as our panel does not support .RAR files.

Step 6: Uploading and Replacing Saves

Go back to the directory on your server mentioned in Step 2.

Upload the zip folder containing your local save into this directory.

After uploading, extract the contents of the zip folder. This will reveal a second folder with a new string of numbers and characters.

Take note of the original string of numbers and characters that existed before the upload. In our example it is 9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1

Delete the folder with the old string of numbers and characters. (9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1)

Rename the new folder you just uploaded to the old folder that was just deleted. For Example:

We uploaded a folder that has the following string E0AC625DC82446CF9DC64586FD2AF5CC and now is in the directory with 9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1.

We will copy the string: 9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1 and delete that folder ONLY after we have COPPIED the name of that folder.

We will then go to the new folder: E0AC625DC82446CF9DC64586FD2AF5CC right click it and rename it, we will then PASTE the old folder name in: 9C6B42F9627C4B938094E4CF328AA4B1

Step 7: Restart and Verify

Restart your PalWorld server.

Attempt to join your server. If you receive a message indicating that you need to create a new character, stop immediately.

Step 8: Contact Support (if needed)

In case you encounter issues or see the message about creating a new character, contact support immediately by opening a ticket here.

Provide the support team with the zip folder you uploaded, so they can diagnose and fix the save issue.

Step 9: Enjoy Your Game

Once these steps are complete, you should be all set to enjoy your PalWorld adventure with your correctly uploaded saves.

This guide ensures that your local saves are seamlessly transferred to your PalWorld server, allowing you to continue your journey without interruption. If you have any further questions or encounter issues, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team.
