I know it's here somewhere.. just haven't found it yet. Transfer game to new pc. thanks everyone.
You're welcome, happy to help.
Here's detailed Instructions for the method I use to make a Backup of the MC progress. I have 13 Castles, and have made Backups HUNDREDS of times and Restored my 13 Castles without fail and without having to wait for BFCS and retained ALL my stuff AND ALL MY FRIENDS. I have Transferred ALL my Castles to different Devices at least 8 times over the past couple of years without fail.
Down the page you will see the instructions for Transferring your Castle to a new/different device. I made the type bigger so it stands out. But please read the whole thing first and PM me if you have any questions. I'm always happy to help!
First your PC MC progress lives in:
AppData\Roaming\Elephant Games\Midnight Castle
1. Click your Start Button, Open your User (at the top of the Start Menu Popup)
AppData should be right there in the lineup. If you don't see it, type Folder Options in the Start Button Search box, go to Folder Options, in View, scroll through and check Show All Folders and scroll down further and (I think it's a button instead of a box to check) Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives (or words like that). AppData will now be visible. Repeat Step 1.
2. Open AppData
3. Open Roaming
You will find the Elephant Games Folder. This is where your MC Progress 'lives.'
4. COPY the ENTIRE ELEPHANT GAMES folder, Then PASTE it to the Desktop. I Rename it like:
Elephant Games Dhyani Nov 1
5. Then copy THAT Renamed/Dated Elephant Games folder to a Flash Drive, SD Card, External Hard Drive or Cloud Storage ~ whatever you have handy, for external storage in case your game and/or computer hoses up and you need to transfer your game to a new device.
If you want to make frequent backups, you MUST Rename the first backup you made, otherwise the new backup will try to overwrite the previous backup and I've had wonky results. I backup maybe twice/week or more frequently when MC is having known issues requiring Developer tweaks/patches/updates LIKE WE'RE HAVING NOW!!!
When Restoring your Game yourself, remove the wonky Elephant Games Folder from AppData Roaming. (I put it in the Trash)
COPY your good backup of the Elephant Games Folder (from the Flash Drive, etc.) and PASTE into AppData\Roaming.
You MUST remember to Rename the good backup copy of the Elephant Games Folder which is now in AppData\Roaming to remove any Renaming you did. The MC Shell will NOT recognize it if it says anything other than Elephant Games. I edit the Elephant Games Folder AFTER I copy/paste it into AppData\Roaming.
Launch from Game Manager or the Desktop Shortcut (if you have one) and your Castle should fire right up, with EVERYTHING intact ~ Restored to the MC progress at the moment you made the backup.
Hope that Helps!

Thank you so very much. Very clear instructions.
Great information. I was able to transfer my game to a new computer. It took a little effort to find where the AppData was on Windows 10, but other than that, your instructions allowed me to transfer the game with no issues.
YAAAYY!!! WOOHOO!!! CONGRATS!!!
And please remember to make regular backups of your Castle progress so when, not if, the game goes wonky.
