How To Find And Clear Save Data On Mac

At times it can become possible that your Mac App Store, Mac Steam, or Mac Epic Game Store save data is corrupted which can cause other issues or needs to be remove in general. As an attempted fix you can try these following steps to clear / delete / remove it to ensure a fresh state:




The location of game saves on the Mac platform are here  /Users/{youruser}/Library/Application Support/Jackbox Games/

In this folder will be a folder for all of our games such as “The Jackbox Party Pack”. Inside of that will be a file called “UserData.sav” which can be deleted.


 

NOTE: Ignore the other folders that have “jackbox” in their name. This MUST be from the Jackbox Games folder. :

You can use the command “SHIFT + CMD(Or Windows Key) + H” to quickly get to the /Users/folder and Since the release of macOS Sierra, when in Finder, it is now possible to use the shortcut: “CMD(Or Windows Key) + SHIFT +” to hide or show (our Mac Mini is above this but  our laptop is not as of February 2019)

But, that Library folder is hidden so you'll  need to make sure it's visible. This is done as follows:

The long way to show hidden Mac OS X files is as follows:

  1. Open Terminal found in Finder > Applications > Utilities (the “Command Prompt” looking application)

  2. In Terminal, paste the following: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles YES

  3. Press return

  4. Hold the ‘Option/alt’ key, then right click on the Finder icon in the dock and click Relaunch.  
    (NOTE: To hide do: defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles NO
