Find my previous MyVirtualHome saved homes when I now use OIGY?

If you’re using OIGY and were previously a MyVirtualHome user you may be wondering where your saved home files have gone.

Don’t worry, they’re still there. By default MyVirtualHome saves homes to your documents folder in a folder called MyVirtualHome. You won’t be surprised to learn then that OIGY saves your homes by default to your documents folder in a folder called OIGY.

When you first run OIGY and click the ‘File’ menu and then click ‘Load home’ you will be looking at the OIGY default folder. Simply navigate up one level and look for MyVirtualHome. Click that folder and your homes will all be there.

If you have saved your homes in MyVirtualHome to a folder other than the default one, just navigate to that folder to find them.
