[XP] Save File System
« on: July 26, 2008, 12:59:24 PM »
Save File System
Authors: shdwlink1993, Phylomortis
Version: 1.12b
Type: Game Enhancement, Save System
Key Term: Title / Save / Load / GameOver Add-on

Introduction

This script has several different (and kinda random :whistle:) systems that I designed to work with Save Files, such as New Game Plus, Multiple Disk System, Infinite Save Files, and Autosave/Restore.

Features

  • New Game Plus: After completing a game, you can use this to let the player start again with their items, party members, and allow them to access new areas and items.
  • Multiple Disk System: Allows you to overcome the Map Limitation and have a smooth transition between disks. Beta release.
  • Infinite Save Files: Set a number and you can have that many Save Files. Much better than the default restriction of 4.
  • Autosave and Autorestore System: This makes it so that if you die, a command window appears asking if you want to retry or quit. Selecting retry will load a temporary save file that can be saved whenever you, the designer, choose.

Screenshots

None needed.

Demo

None needed.

Script

This script can go anywhere underneath Scene_Load, but it is recommended that it go underneath all your other scripts except Main.
(click to show/hide)

Instructions

Found in Script.

Compatibility

Doesn't work with other Save Systems, New Game Plus Systems, or the SDK.
Requires a little modifying to work with Title Screen Mods.
Should work with DREAM and CPSL.

Credits and Thanks

  • shdwlink1993 - for making it.
  • Blizzard - for some inspiration and scripting conventions.
  • Phylomortis - because part of the Infinite Save Files came from his script.
  • Memor-X - for requesting the Multiple Disk System.

Author's Notes

As this is the first script I have released, any and all issues or bug reports would be greatly appreciated. If you have any requests or add-ons you'd like to see, don't hesitate to drop a suggestion.

Also, the Multiple Disk System is currently beta because I have not tested it completely yet. There is a chance that there are blatantly (and not-so-blatantly) obvious errors in it.

Why do I always release updates for this script when it's very early in the morning?

Thanks, because I am going to make my game even funner using this system, being able to redo the game with new Elite equipment. Also could there be an option to increase the enemy stats by a percentage of their current stats on that savefile?

Does the difficulty in tons of addons have a menu, if there is could you please help me take it out, because I already have a difficulty menu + difficulty unlocker for normal new game? All I want to do with the difficulties is increase them by a percentage, if there is a way to do that with new game plus could you please help me do it Blizz?

Different Difficulties has a menu right at the title screen when you start a new game. If you want New Game+, you should get New Game+. :P

Yes, it can work with any custom title. The only catch is that I need to know what the custom parts of it are. :P If you have much experience with scripting, it wouldn't take more than a couple minutes to make a patch for it yourself, :evil: but otherwise, I need to know what script you are using.

EDIT: Version 1.1b coming shortly... 8)

Oops! :^_^': That's my bad. I meant 1.1b. xD

In other news: I have finished 1.1b (I'm not known for giving much warning time). This version includes support for CPSL (still beta (technically alpha) because... well... I forget), a new system, and improvements to some of the others.
