What options are there towards saving gamedata?

  • Included capx if you want to mess with it

    I implemented savedata in my Zelda SDK using the native save/load, with naming slots, separate saves, etc. An issue, as a cavet of the native save/load: It creates a snapshot of "slotx" so using a variable to ensure a save slot exists before-hand is moot.

    My research indicates my best option is using dictionary+webstorage and storing 3 dictionary keys each for data. Is this the right away to go about it? I have researched webstorage and dictionary a little but I only have a small hunch of how to. My hunch is better with saving said keys but not on how to actually reload them.

    Like:

    "slot1rupees"

    "slot2rupees"

    "slot3rupees"

    • Another example how to do high scores with Local Storage - LINK

    Those are examples of how to use the local storage, and it will show how to use it to save and load values.

    The value you save will likely be the .asJson content of your dictionary object.

    So when you load from the local storage (get or checking if item exists and it does) you can then Dictionary.Load LocalStorage.ItemValue
