Shadowground losed the ability to save games - Linux

Postby Michael_Collins » Sun Apr 17, 2011 4:07 pm

Hi there,

I read the website, FAQ and did some searching on the forums but didn't see anything that looked like it would help my issue out. 

Basically, I can't save - there is no option that allows me to do so in any of the menus, and the game isn't saving automatically between levels, after the level 3 (and after the 1st level with new profile). 

Saving worked for the level 1, 2 and 3. Then it stopped saving between levels.

I bought the game with the Humble Pack, Linux version.



To solve the problem, I tried this :
- create a new Profile, and restart from the beginning.

→ does not work : zero save. It remains empty.


- i checked my folders :
/usr/local/games/shadowground/Profiles :
- current_profil.txt
- /default/Save folder : dummy.txt (no save files)

My saved games are not in this last folder.



i deleted my Profiles folder and replace it by this one, find in another post : http://shadowgroundsgame.com/savegames/

i unzipped All_saves_zipped_forDefaultProfile.zip
- /usr/local/games/shadowground/Profiles/Default/Save contains all basic saved games : save_1.dhs, save_2.dhs, save_3.dhs etc...

i launched the game. No change.

i renamed /Default with /default (without the capital D)



i launched the game. Profile « default ». Load games : there are still my previous saved games (i.e level 1, level 2 and level 3, with the date and the hour of my previous saved games)... But not the newer.
Playing the game to the next level : level 4 not saved...




So :
deleting the previous Profile folder does not work, because previous saved games are still here.
Installing Frozenbyte folder and Frozenbyte saved games does not work.


Can i try something else ?
Where can i found my folder with the real saved games ?

Can i find a log file / debug file to help you ?

NB :

Aside from the save issue, I think the game is great (although I haven't had the time to play past the third levels... because I have to start from the third level each time I play). 

Graphics are very great, very high settings on...



Thanks for the help and the great game!

I'm not sure if this helps, but savegames are located in your home directory at ~/.frozenbyte/shadowgrounds/profiles/<profilename>/save/, not in the game directory (/usr/local/games/shadowgrounds).

Hi !

Thank you for your reply !

I confirm your tip : the actual folder for savegames on Linux is here :

[ home directory ] ~/.frozenbyte/shadowgrounds/Profiles/<profilename>/Save/

on my computer, it was : ~/.frozenbyte/shadowgrounds/Profiles/default/Save/

Copy / Paste Frozenbyte savegames in this directory worked for me...


I will check if my problem is a permission issue... (root? current user ?)




Is there a log file to help your team debugging this rare problem ?


Best regards,

MC


[EDIT ] : remaining problem is that i lose my stuff / upgrades with your savegames...

Hi !


I can t explain exactly why, but it now works...

The only thing I did was copying Frozenbyte savegames (save_5.dhs and save_6.dhs) to do a test.


After that, i launched the game : there were my previous savegames (level 1, 2 and 3), 4th was empty, and level 5 and 6 were available in the game in "Load" section.

I played level 3 again, with my previous savegame : miracle, the game has saved the 4th level with my stuff...


I can finish the game, and send you my savegames with some stuff and upgrades, for others customers with this bug.



Best regards,
