The game's save data is contained in two files, both of which need to be moved between computers in order to get everything migrated properly.

These files are so.sol and serial.txt. I have a Mac and a Windows machine, so I'll go ahead and list the location of said files on both platforms (if anyone has any Linux info, feel free to chip in).

On the PC:

serial.txt: Can be found in the game's steam installation folder, something along the lines of

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\the binding of isaac\

so.sol: Can be found over at

%appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\<some random string>\localhost\

The "random string" bit is some combination of letters and numbers which is impossible to predict. Assuming you've ever run the game, simply search for "so.sol" at "%appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player#SharedObjects" (you can type this in your run prompt to get there). On my machine I have several so.sol files, but only one is on a path that looks exactly like the one I specified, and that's the one that counts.

On the Mac:

serial.txt: Can be found in the game's steam installation folder, something along the lines of

~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/the binding of isaac/

so.sol: Much like the PC, only over at

~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects/4UUE5CSF/localhost/

On Linux:


so.sol: Much like the PC, only over at

~/.macromedia/Flash_Player/#SharedObjects/randomstring/localhost/so.sol


As a final note, you need to move both files, and to launch the game at least once on the target machine to know where they should go.
