This page aims to guide you through the process of making back-ups saves for Whipped and Steamy • Cosplay Café. We’ve included this feature to allow you to keep a easy backup of web data, as it may be lost during updates and patches. Additionally, it provides an easy way to back up desktop saves. You can also export your web progress and bringing it over to the desktop version.
This guide also includes an explanation on how to manually convert your old save files from Cosplay Café into new Whipped and Steamy • Cosplay Café saves.
Exporting Save Data and Creating Back-Ups
Backing up saves in Whipped and Steamy • Cosplay Café couldn’t be easier. At any moment in the game, regardless of the version, you can open the Journal menu. Scrolling down to the bottom of the Settings reveals both Export Game Data and Import Game Data options.
We strongly recommend that you frequently back-up your Web saves, as game updates can possibly wipe away existing data. Exporting your web data frequently assures that you always have the option to bring it back!
Pressing the Export Game Data option will prompt-up a file explorer window where you can save a .wag file. You can save this with any name and in any location you want (just don’t forget where you put it!).
Pressing the Import Game Data option will prompt-up an explorer window where you can import a previously saved .wag file. Take in note that this will replace your existing saves, turning the old saves into .bak backup saves! You can get these saves at %UserProfile%\AppData\LocalLow\Whales And Games\Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe
(For Mac, this directory is ~/Library/Application Support/Whales And Games/Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe. For Linux ~/.config/unity3d/Whales And Games/Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe).
After you import your saves, the game will reboot and your freshly imported saves should be ready to go!
Keep in mind that, for future updates, saves from outdated versions or saves that have been imported into the game will not be considered for the Espresso Leaderboards.
Converting Cosplay Café Saves to Whipped And Steamy Saves (Desktop Only)
On the the 28th of March 2019, we released version 1.0B5 for Whipped and Steamy • Cosplay Café, renaming the game from its old name, Cosplay Café, to its new name. Along the name change, we’ve made internal project changes that affect the storage location of saves and how the file format is kept.
The new version of the game automatically transfers old Cosplay Café saves when you open it the new version of the game. However, certain error cases may require you to manually move the saves from the old directory to their new location.
This guide has screenshots and explains how to move saves for the Windows version of the game, although the directories for both Mac and Linux are also included.
First, start by opening the new version of the game. Just opening should be enough, and there’s no need to go further than the Title Screen.
Navigate towards %UserProfile%\AppData\LocalLow\Whales And Games\Cosplay Cafe. You can type this in the address bar of your explorer and it will take you directly to this folder.
(For Mac, this directory is ~/Library/Application Support/Whales And Games/Cosplay Cafe, and for Linux ~/.config/unity3d/Whales And Games/Cosplay Cafe)
Copy or move your existing save files there and make sure they are named CaffiesJournal.dat, HotCoffee.dat, BigChug.dat. Note that you might not have all three files if you don’t have, for example, an endless save. This is fine, and you should copy the save files that you currently have. We recommend keeping a backup of these files around for any case though!
The output_log.txt and the Unity folder are not relevant to the save files.
Navigate to the new directory that the new version should have created when you opened the game for the first time. This directory should be %UserProfile%\AppData\LocalLow\Whales And Games\Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe. Like the previous example, you can copy this directory directly into your file browser address bar to move there.
(For Mac, this directory is ~/Library/Application Support/Whales And Games/Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe, and for Linux ~/.config/unity3d/Whales And Games/Whipped And Steamy Cosplay Cafe)
Paste or place the files into this new folder, and done! If you open the game, your files should automatically convert over to the new file format, and you’re ready to continue where you left off!
