First, can't remember if I've said thanks for this, so if not, thanks! Second, this has probably been asked, so forgive me if I skipped over it, but is the file saved on our computers or on the Titan server, and if the former, where?

I just want to make sure I did it right. :-[

It's saved on your computer. It will create a file for each character in whatever folder you saved the SentinelPlus.exe file in and are running it from.

Ah, I see it now. Thanks!

Just checking- I know that editing the file is a bad idea, because of the checksum.  Is it okay to rename the file?

Renaming is fine, it won't affect the checksum.

Thanks.

It occurs to me- should there be a warning about the checksum in the window when it runs?  Just to encourage people to be honest.

There should, but not for that reason. I asked before doing it because I thought there might be such a checksum, I was only going to change the character names in a few cases.

1: I was going to give a toon that had been generic'd her name back (I don't think Debbie does Talos is offensive)
2: I played on Victory and transferred maybe 30 50s off to other servers to make space, on some of those, the original name was not available on the new server, I would have liked to edit those too.

To me, these are entirely non nefarious reasons for doing it

Used the extractor tool to pull off about 30 heroes and villians.  Thanks for developing the tool.

Not sure if anyone else has run into this, but it doesn't like it if you're in Dark Astoria. I moved to Ouroboros and it worked just fine.

I will go down with this ship.  I won't put my hands up in surrender.  There will be no white flag above my door.  I'm in love, and always will be.  Dido

Oh, that's not good - some of them the Buffs and a few things) start as soon as you claim them, and IDK where I'm going to put all those Dual/Team Inspirations or the ones that are still random & unclaimed?

Where do the saved files go so I can check to see if they are making it?

How do I run as administrator?

The program seems to run fine, I just don't know what I'm doing.

They're saved in the directory in which you run SentinelPlus.exe.

How do I run as administrator?

Right-click on the program and select Run as administrator from the popup menu.

A massive thanks to everyone involved in getting this program out there. If you weren't an altaholic to begin with, almost certainly City of Heroes is the game that would make you one. Backing everything up here, a big job but thank you so much for making this possible.

Despite being functionally illiterate with technology, I managed to archive ALL my characters tonight (it was that easy!) -- thanks everybody!

If you just read the directions, take your stuff off Wentworth's etc., open your info window, the thing works exactly as it should.

I noticed on at least one occasion it told me it saved without badges, despite my info window being open- I closed and reopened it, and hit Sentinel+ again and all was saved.

I just wanted to thank you guys for developing this. Having my key 5 characters (I decided to let most of my alts die because I do not have the time to log in to all of them!) sitting on my computer is comforting. The thought that one day they could again, Shoot lightning/command robots/steal power, is what gives me hope that this is not the end of the City.
