Press Ctrl+H in nautilus (the file browser). –  nickguletskii Jun 21 '11 at 12:01
    
Thank you so much. such a simple thing to just select "show hidden files" in view on the menu bar. I was thinking it might be complex. but your suggestion directed me to finding the file. I was able to find it in my normal login itself. didnt have to use nautilus. –  newforubuntulinux Jun 21 '11 at 12:15

Press Ctrl+H in nautilus (the file browser). – nickguletskii. Thank you for "nickguletskii". The above help from "nickguletskii" helped me to view hidden files in my user account. I found the hidden files and the saved game files under the game folder. I didnt have to use nautilus. When I clicked "show hidden files" in the home folder the applications folders appeared. –  newforubuntulinux Jun 21 '11 at 12:40
