|Summary||0002997: SVN TDM (1.08) not saving games properly|
|Description||I just tried saving a game while testing my WIP.|
The WIP lives in the Doom 3 folder, next to darkmod. ( Doom 3/<mygame> )
When you go to the Save/Load screen, existing savegames are shown. So TDM is reading Doom 3/<mygame>/savegames correctly.
But if save another game, it doesn't show on the Save/Load screen. TDM saved it in Doom 3/darkmod/fms/<mygame>/savegames.
If I restart TDM, it ignores Doom 3/darkmod/fms/<mygame>/savegames.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
I've submitted a patch to fix the paths (rev. 5239 & 5240), so savegames should show up in the Load/Save Game menu. This probably requires more testing, so if anyone notices that TDM can't find other types files, it's probably this patch.
The problem where loading a savegame starts you at the beginning of the mission still exists.
I can't build engines, so I'll test this the next time a Windows engine is built and released to SVN with the changes.
Thanks for working on this, and welcome to the crew!
|I just compiled latest release with update 5240 savegames now work properly, but loading a quick save or a manual save always brings you back to the beginning of the mission.|
Yeah, I'm busy looking into why it resets the mission when you load. I'll probably on have time to dig into it properly sometime this weekend though.
serpentine mentioned that deleting saves is also broken, but that should be easier to fix than the mission reset issue.
I have committed a simple patch that should fix the loading of savegames (serpentine has a knack for making wild guesses that end up being mostly correct).
If you have tdm_force_savegame_load 0 set, you will need to make sure that you test with saves made on the latest revision. The load game code checks whether or not the SVN revision has changed and if so, it will just load the map without any progress.
Setting tdm_force_savegame_load to 1, will bypass this check. Recent savegames should still load fine, but it is not advisable to keep it set to 1 as later changes to the game will likely result in invalid savegames.
Keep in mind that you will start at the beginning of the level if you are loading a save made using a prior SVN revision that your current build (intended).
