Where can I find my Sid Meier's Pirates save games?
Saved games are stored in a special folder within the current user's My Documents folder. This folder can be located by navigating to "My Documents", then selecting "My Games", and finally selecting "Sid Meier's Pirates!".
Pirates! saved games have the extension ".pirates_savegame". You may copy or delete these files as you would any other files. Renaming saved games is not recommended, as the game will only recognize specific filenames as valid for loading.
Double-clicking a saved game will launch the game and load that saved game.
