Savegame question
« on: January 20, 2003, 01:07:11 am »

First off, great job everyone.  I've been wanting to play Star Control 2 again for years and years, and I can't tell you how happy I was to find it had been ported to the newest OS's.

My question is a rather selfish one.  I played SC2 for a while yesterday at version 0.1... I downloaded the archive.  Today, I updated via CVS and recompiled with VC6.  Works fine.  But, as I had feared, my savegame from yesterday doesn't seem to work with the newest build.

I know I shouldn't be playing just to play, because this is afterall alpha, but I have to admit, 75% of my energies are directed towards playing the game rather than debugging.  I can't help it. Smiley

So, it comes down to this:  is there a way to convert old savegame files (remote remote possibility I know)... if the savegame structure hasn't been modified a lot, could I undo the changes done to version .13 so that it'll load my old savegame?  

I know I'll most likely just end up playing the more-bugged version 0.1, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Or perhaps I'm not copying the right files for the savegames... I asume the savegame files are stored in content/starcon2.001, 002 etc.

Okay I'll stop now.

Thanks for any suggestions, and keep up the great work.

The savegame directory moved between 0.1 and 0.13, beyond that I believe the two file formats are identical.

When the game launches it should report to stderr where the savegame directory is; move your savegame files into that directory and all should be well.
