Locate Save (New Save) Files

Let's say I wanted to tell users that if they wanted to back up save files, they can go to X:\BLAH\BLAH\file.xml and save that somewhere like Dropbox.

Does this exist? or would we need some tool to rip it out the browser.

You need to provide your own feature to let them download their save data. You can use the expression to get the save data and the browser object's 'Download' action to do that.

@InvaderX: see How to make savegames, under 'Using the JSON data directly'. It's the SaveStateJSON expression.

I'm really interested in seeing if the Cloud based save game thing is possible. That would be sweet. Either through clay.io or Azure.

@Ashley Is it possible to do the "Download" action with node-webkit?
