I searched in programfiles(x86)/black isle/BGII but there is no folder called save or anything similar to that.

Oddly enough though, shadowkeeper is able to find my save files, and I can play my characters in the game.

So does anybody know where my save files are??

Had the exact same problem, what's most strange is that Shadowkeeper can find the files BUT if you create your own copy of the correct save folders "save" and "msave" or "mpsave" whatever it is, they have no effect. Assuming you installed in C:/Program Files/Black Isles/ BGII - SoA, follow these steps.

 

GO to

C:/Users / User Name / AppData / Local / VirtualStore / Program Files / Black Isle / BGII - SoA /

At which point you will see of most importance: save, mpsave, and the baldur.ini (if you use debug mode).

Happened to me as well. Followed every advice I read online yet I could't find anything. I then decided to get an old PC, Install Windows 98 on it and just use it to play old games. Best decision I ever made TBH. The feeling of playing an old game on an old PC is truly unique and you can get a lot of parts for free nowadays from people that are just throwing them away.
