Save game progress?

Post by Leon » Tue May 11, 2021 1:37 pm

Hi Enigma, thank you for developing such great software.

I'm trying to create a single exe file for my games, but the problem is that EVB seems can not store my game process.

All the data is been stored in the "save" folder in the %Default Folder%, I can see it been stored properly during the game, but losted after I restart the game, is there any chance to fix this?

Thank you again for the wonderful job.

Hi Leon,

There could be few problems due to EVB limitation:
1. All the changes that application make in virtual files exist only during the application is working. When it is closed, all changes are gone. So changes to virtual files are not saved to anywhere, they just being discarded after restart. So make sure you do not add "Saves" file to virtual.
2. Check properties of Default Folder and make sure the virtualization option is set to "New files and folders become real", so all files that app creates will be saved to the disk, instead of emulated in memory.
