Synchronization between computers

Recommended Posts



I was playing RF4 via Steam for several years. A few days ago, I have installed game on the other computer on the other location, with the same Steam account.

After I installed the game, I noticed that the ingame settings are the default ones, not the one from the first computer.

Also, all of my previous ingame communication with other players is not visible on the new computer.

All in all, settings and messages are not synchronized over different computers for the same Steam account. Settings are not so important, because I do them once, but messages are really a problem.

My question is whether ingame messages for the Standalone game are synchronized over different computers?

Hey @realnemilose, if you have access to your old PC where from you have the conversations in RF4, go to this location(I have Win10):  \AppData\Roaming\RussianFishingLLC\RussianFishing4EN\ and you will see a folder named Mailbox_xxxxx, copy that folder and paste it on your new PC in the same location, there might be a problem if you have chat with same players on your new PC. Also in that location you have Settings and Preferences. Next time you will know that you need to copy those on your new PC or new installed game.


Same works with Standalone version, the messages are not synchronized between computers, only by copy-paste that folder.

Even if you will be transferred from a region to another or from Steam to Standalone, you need to copy-paste that folder to have the chat history in game.

Thanks! I will try. For Steam version, mentioned folder and files are in \AppData\Roaming\RussianFishingLLC\RussianFishing4Steam

Because I use both PCs (not at the same time), I will also try keep the contents of this forlder in sync via Dropbox or Google Drive.
