Profile File Location

The profile data for FTL is cross platform so you're welcome to migrate it to any machine. The locations for profiles are listed below for each operating system, just copy "ae_prof.sav" and "prof.sav" over to keep your unlocked ships / achievements.

Note: Folders won't be available until you run the game at least once, but you can make them manually and that will work as well.


My Documents/My Games/FasterThanLight


~/Library/Application Support/FasterThanLight/

If you can't find your Library folder, it's because on Mac OS Lion it's defaulted to hidden. Open a Terminal and enter:

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

Or just open Finder and "Go->Go to Folder" and enter the path


For most users, it will be in ~/.local/share/FasterThanLight/

...but if you modified XDG_DATA_HOME it will be in [XDG_DATA_HOME]/FasterThanLight

Hope that all works out!
