Save System in Construct 2

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hello!

I've a question about Scirra Construct 2. I'm planning to create a pretty big game with the engine, but I just realized something important; we need a save system!

I do not know if it's possible to create a save system when you're playing the game in the browser. Is it possible? And if the answer is 'Yes'; how can I do that?!

Thank you!
Thijs

It might be doable with cookies, I can't remember if C2 has them implemented tough ...

HTML5 supports local storage, so that would probably be a good way of saving a user's data.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I'm aiming to replicate Classic's save system at some point (it's just one action, and it automatically saves the entire game). It's on a very long todo list of features, though.

So, did you already made it, or is it still on the to-do-list? :) I want to make an RPG, so this system is very important for me. Thijsku2011-11-03 20:43:13

He said it's not done yet, but will do, which sounds like a life saver for me too, since I am creating an RPG as well.
