separate savegames
« on: March 08, 2009, 11:45:05 AM »
The problem :
I'm playing pak128 and pak96c, but when I play pak128 and load a savegame, pak96c's savegames appear too and when I play pak96c .....

I think savegames' folder should have folders for paks.

savegames/pak128/......sve
savegames/pak96c/......sve

Very nice idea!
If I cannot load it, I shouldn't see it.

That is indeed a good idea, although, it's not as easy as it looks, since two slightly different (but compatible) paksets might reside in different folders...

I really like the idea!

But the name of the savegame folder shouldn't the name of the Pak-Set folder. It would be better if the name of the savegame folder is set in the simuconf.tab!

I have installed three versions of pak128 in folders pak128-1.4.4, pak128-567 and pak128. What and how decides that saves are incompatible?

... So the name of folder = pak's name of folder is a good idea to separate different versions ;)

Well, but this is already implemented. YOu only have to scroll a little.

Hmm, maybe a checkbox that toggles visibility of all games with name other than currently loaded pakset, by default set to hide? Like:

a)

[____________________]
save123       pak128
save456       pak128
save789       pak128

show saves from different versions [ ]


b)

[____________________]
save123       pak128
save456       pak128
save789       pak128
hgfhgfhfd     pak128-nightly-234
supertown     pak96.comic
mygame        pak

show saves from different versions [X]

That way you can filter out the visual clutter and still load games from different versions if the need be.

Or just sort the exact matches to the top and then the matching beginnings and then then rest ...

I support original gauthier's idea and Cruzer's idea, folder name from simuconf.tab.
