FTL SaveGameManager (OpenSource) 24.03.15

Postby JonnyJaap » Fri Oct 24, 2014 8:20 pm

Update info a the next post :)

I am developing a SaveGameManager for FTL.
It is able to save and load the current "jump" (continue.sav) and it can also backup and restore the profile file.
And it can update it self.

It´s selecting the default path of the location from FTL "C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\My Games\fasterthanlight" and you most just select the folder where you want to save it.

It will add a folder called "\Savegame" to your selected path, there the continue.sav file are saved.
You can also backup your profile. you just need to activate it in the settings and choice with version you have. The normal or the advance edition. The profiles are saved in an Profile folder.
And the program has an updater so it can update itself, so you do not go online and check self.

This should be helpful if you want to sync your Profile and Savegame on other computer with Dropbox or other services.

It is just for Windows.

The programm is open source it is on Github.

Are some interested in it?
Hope to get feedback :)


Sorry for my English :roll:

- The Backup & Restore button are disabled, will soon activated again.
- Some english strings.
- Other small changing in the code.

Knowing issues
- If you use Cyrillic alphabet I think you get an error. At the moment I am not sure why, but will look at it soon or later. Feedback would be nice.

Version b1.50.3.45
01.02.2015
is an Beta

'New' design...
- Shows the date of the selected file.
- The FLT & *User* path are now on one 'page'
- The button, label and listbox are now in proportion to each other
- The about have some new labels

Other new funktion
- The FTL Savegame Manager will now "remember" the path of the selected folders, at the first start you need to set an path, after this, it create an text file in the root/home folder from the user. In this file the path is saved. If you get a new version of FTLSGM, it reads this file and load the path.

- In the Backup folder (the folder the user selected) the program creates a folder called Savegame, in this it copying the files, in this folder is also an Readme.txt. In the Backup folder it will copy the file if "pressing" 'Backup'.
- Do NOT delete this folder. The program needs the Savegame folder, if the folder is missing you will get an error message and must selected a new path.


- The program can now only load files that ends on .sav.
- If a file ends on .txt it is asking whether you want to open it in 'notepad'

- Double clicking on an listet file, will load/restore it.
- Double clicking on the path at the bottom of the window will open on folder with this location.

And some other small stuff.

Next time you post an application make sure to use spellcheck for the gui :lol:

Otherwise looks decent.

Hi OneShot17,
thanks for your feedback :)

I was working on a “new” version, optimizes code, better gui (optic and grammar/spelling), more information about the saved files, some safety Check to be shore you would not lose the newest savegame and more.
However, I had so much other things to do, for the most high school work. Therefore, I forgot the project…
thanks for the reminder.

I will try to start today again. However, there are missing some important parts before it can work again.
Therefore, it will take a bit more time for me to get it working again.

Best regards
Jonny Jaap

It does not support the Cyrillic alphabet? I click the "Load", but the file is not downloaded from the folder Savegame.

Thanks.
That was really quick :)

So if you click Load, the program will copy the selected file to C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\FTL Faster Than Light.
Is the file in this folder?

Edit:
I created a folder named "Администратор" to test it, in my case I have no problem. It can copy the file in this folder and out.
