How do you go about making multiple save files?
All I can think of is making multiple hashtables or arrays and then saving/loading a single one based on a global value.
That would work just fine, but would also be a ton of work. Each tiny little thing I want to load would have to have multiple subevents to see which hashtable to get the data from. That's going to suck.
+Start of frame
+global value = 1
+Hashttable 1 value at key = blah
-destroy item because you already got it.
That * n of save files = cumbersome.
I get the feeling there's some way to automate which hashtable to load from, but I dunno..Like, start a loop, then compare the loop index to the hashtable number (hashtable 1, 2, or 3) then pull the data from it. It's not like they have PVs or anything though >_.
My current project won't have much save data..Just which level you're on and such..but what about larger projects? Does anyone actually do it this way?
