During this time XLN will be closed so it can be backed up. When the new DNS takes effect, you will see a basic page with a message regarding the move. Note: It may take up to two weeks to get XLN up and running again.

    1.Allow displaying known file extensions
    2.Go to C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\Focus Home Interactive\Cities XL 2012\live\offline\solo\solosaveregionXmapXX\auto
    3.Do this:
    If it will not work with old try with old2
    4.You are done!
