Problems with saving game

Postby Allegro » Fri Jan 25, 2019 3:42 am

When trying to save, this message pops up. As far as I know, it shouldn't be any permission issue here. Does anybody know what else can cause this?

Is this from within Adventure Maker or is this a compiled game?

If from a compiled game, right-click on the game icon or executable file and run as administrator (this will allow you to run as an admin during this session)
If from Adventure Maker, do the same when launching Adventure Maker.

The screenshot above is how I set AM so it would run as administrator automatically every time.

You could try using the AM Save Game plugin! :mrgreen:

Actually, I would suggest getting it to work before trying this. I just wanted to plug something I built! :P

That's all I can think of at the moment.

Thank you Reneuend!

It's from a compiled game. I'll ask the player to try this. I wonder why it happened though?

It's true that you shouldn't have to do this with a compiled game. It may not even work, but I would be surprised if it didn't.
I'm sure you have compiled the game and tried it out on your own computer, right? If it worked for you, then I would say it is the way the user has their computer set up or perhaps they have a strange anti-virus software that is doing this.

Yes, the compiled game has worked for me and other users for 14 years now. Antivirus acting up or weird setup are my best guesses too.

I think my player told me about the same problem, but I´m not really sure and don`t know how to handle it. I´ve tested the tutorial of this thread and did make a right mouse click on the game .exe file and on the icon of the installed game too, but I think that wasn`t the correct way !?

And here is the original problem description of my player: "Every time I try and save it says there is an error and the game might not work properly. It doesn't end up saving."

Thank you in advance for helping!! :D

"...right mouse click on the game .exe file and on the icon of the installed game too, but I think that wasn`t the correct way !?"

- It is IMPERITIVE that you select "Run as Administrator" . When you right-click, you should select "Run as Administrator", this avoids permission issues. (see screenshot)



This game is such a nice one. We need to figure out what's causing it.
Let me do some reviewing, testing, thinking. I have some thoughts about it, but I want to review it first.
