I am still working on the load/save functionality for HeroMachine 3. So far I have the program saving and loading one character, which is great — that’s the heart of the beast. I am currently working on a more complicated interface that will save more than one character (what a concept!), allowing you to pick the one you want to load or save from a list, or to type in a new save file name. That all takes a lot longer in Flash than in other languages because you have to build a lot of that from scratch, but it’s more tedious and mind-numbing than difficult.
The long and short of it is, I ought to have this up for testing and use next week, if all goes well.
As a bonus, I can use essentially the same code as a “QuickSave” sort of thing to allow an “Undo” feature. It’ll probably be just one level, although if I can stomach it I’ll try to figure out how to do more. This stuff is important, but boring to work on, I am itchy to actually draw something.
