I am following the steps for this feature from the FAQ at:https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/comment/460954#Comment_460954
I am doing the following:
1) On my Windows 10 PC with the latest updates, in the "C:\Users\Graham\Documents\Baldur's Gate - Enhanced Edition\save" directory, I have a folder called "000000031-test" in which I have saved a copy of a game I want to transfer to my iPad.
2) In that folder are the following files:
3) Using 7-zip, I zip up the "000000031-test" folder into a zip file called ExportSave.zip. Note: When I open that zip file, I see the "000000031-test" folder inside the zip file and I can see that the "000000031-test" folder contains the files listed above.
4) I rename ExportSave.zip to ExportSave.bg1save
5) I email that file to myself.
6) On my iPad, running iOS 9.2, I double-tap the home button to examine running aps. Baldurs Gate is not listed, which means it is not running.
7) On my iPad, I view my mail with the attached ExportSave.bg1save file. I tap on the file to download it to the iPad. The attachment is now represented by a BG icon.
8) I tap on the icon for the attachment, and iOS presents me with a set of coices, including "Copy to Baldur's Gate," which I choose.
9) BG opens with a black screen for about 1 second and then closes right away.
10) When I check for running apps, BG is not displayed.
11) I run BG and navigate to the Load Saved Games screen, my saved game is not listed.
I have tried this with zero other saved games saved on my iPad and with 1-2 games already saved on my iPad, it does not work, either way. I have tried it with BG running when I open the email attachment and get the same results.
I am thinking step 9, above, is the issue. BG slides open with a black screen and then closes right away. Should it stay open? What can I check? I tried attaching my saved game to this thread, but the web page says that such attachments are not allowed.
