    Btw Johnson:

    -------- List of Items --------
    Set Save_ItemNum = 1
    Set SaveLoad_Items[Save_ItemNum] = Alleria's Flute of Accuracy
    Set Save_ItemNum = (Save_ItemNum + 1)
    Set SaveLoad_Items[Save_ItemNum] = Amulet of Spell Shield
    ...

    Makes things little easier.

    Y it is...

    Then you can pick all items in rect and for each picked item:
    Set SaveLoad_Items[Save_ItemNum+1] = Picked item

    Thats about 6 lines but I think its unstable when you update items, anyway i prefer mine way when i do stufs like this, i always store stufs in variables then a do things with them.

    Anyway this code is very good :D.

    Chocobo just add lower case letters inside... or add your specific color.
    "
    loop
    set i = i - 1
    set c = SubString(s,i,i + 1)
    if c == "0" or c == "1" or c == "2" or c == "3" or c == "4" or c == "5" or c == "6" or c == "7" or c == "8" or c == "9" or c =q= "" or c == "w" or c == "e" then
    set r = "|cffffcc00" + c + "|r" + r
    elseif c == "-" then
    set r = "|cffdddddd-|r" + r
    else
    set r = c + r
    endif
    exitwhen i <= 0
    endloop
    "

    Hey Nice Load/Save Trigger. Works good...

    Im making a map Called the Daemonic Sword... Its nearing Completion within the year probably... lol However...

    One Problem i have for my map, is that there is atleast 4 characters to choose from..

    But only one player can be that Characters during a Session.

    Im working on the trigger but the events and conditions are the hard part..

    I want it so...

    Events
    A player types load - (code)



    effect:
    If that unit is already taken by another character.
    Then remove that character
    tell the player you cannot load this charcter because this character type is already in play...

    I have a slight idea but its hard to make it so the computer knows which character type it is....


    It could be vise versa too.. as the player has already loaded the character... and the player chooses that character with their wisp.. and it tell them you cant choose Hero because someone has load it...
    Any Suggestions or Hints would be nice, thnks
    :banghead:

    One more thing..

    It could also work like... Whichever players wisp goes to that unit.. It asks the player if they want to start a new character of that type... or load it...

    If they choose load... They must load that unit type..
    or it removes that loaded unit.. and restarts the trigger...

    asking them if they want a new character of that type.. or load it.

    Pretty solid saving/load system....saves everything...However, I think I got messed up here...

    So far everything is working I nvr changed any values...but after I added right at the btm of the trigger code just right above (set udg code saveload_encode) "SaveCount = Savecount + 1" and "Set Save[SaveCount] = Triggering Player CUrrent Lumber".... and proceeded to add the very same thing in LOADING, it doesnt work.

    No matter what I do, it gives me weird values like 2 all the way, no matter how much lumber I saved. Sometimes when I changed the spot its in it gives me 101 lumber...and edits my abilities so my abilities dont save...

    I cant figure out whats wrong so does any1 know how to make it so that it could save lumber?

    This system looks awesome.
    But one question (Not sure if it was asked already):
    Whats the maximum number of integer values you can store?

    For example, I want to save the quest progression of the player into the code.
    I could save one Integer for any quest chain, needing 6 integer values, one for each quest chain.
    Or could I also use one integer like for example 103067 to store the progression of all quests in one int?
    If yes, which one will create a shorter code?

    The more info, the more code.
    As such, 103067 (whatever that's supposed to mean :p) is clearly superior.

    Sounds good. Currently, Thythoid is creating my save/load system, however, if he doesn't reply, I will stick to your system.

    Actually it's not that hard to understand what I meant with the int ;)
    The first digit is the status of the first quest chain, the second of the second, etc ...
    So basicly the code adjusts the maximum value depending on your input? That's neat. Great work.

    Another question: Is there a cheat-protection on the code? Like a checksum or something? If not, it would be easy to implement, because you can store the checksum in an int and then compare when loading, but I am just asking for the case that you already implemented it.

    Just tried this out, it's pretty awesome.

    I got 3 questions for this.

    Question 1 Is this version friendly? If I were to make several versions of the same map with relatively few new items/heroes etc. would the code still load from older versions? If not/if so, how can it be added in?

    Question 2 Is it anti-item duplicate? Like you wouldn't be able to -load your character, drop all your items, -load again and then you could pick up whatever over and over? If not/if so, how can it be added in?

    Question 3 Can you point out all the leaks, so I can go in and remove them? (In case I miss some, it's kinda hard to tell with all the variable settings and such.)

    I solved problem on your question 2 , but seems like when i put more than 145 items or somtn like that, it loads wrong items, so it seems it has small limit of items...

    1) Save the integer of what version you are using

    2) With some basic GUI knowledge.

    3) The Unit Groups.

    > when I put more than 145 items

    For that you would need version 2.0 which has never been released.

    Ok, let's asume for a second that the hero I am trying to save, uses 2 inventorys. Will both get saved or will only the current one get saved ?

    It saves what you tell it to save. Nothing more, nothing less.
    If that includes those extra items, yes. Otherwise no.

    Only One item is restored..

    as the title says it,

    I have a hero, pick up 3 items, save, load, but only the first inventory item gets restored.

    I looked through the thread and saw that someone else had the same problem as me, and tried to do what he did to solve it but it still doesnt work.

    My map has 175 Items that i've put in the init trigger. I haven't
    seen any problems yet, but will I?

    Hello, I am trying to use this save/load system on my map. I tried all the triggers, save hero, save hero and items, save hero and abilities, but save all doesnt seem to save all...

    I can get all the other triggers working but save all doesnt seem to save abilities, and when I look at the save all triggers, it doesnt seem to have the save abilities section like the save abilities trigger has, did I do something wrong or is there a mistake?

    Id like to save both hero items and hero abilities, how do I get this to work?
