What does the SaveState attribute save?
« on: March 02, 2012, 03:09:52 PM »

I'm pretty new to Wintermute (defected from AGS), so forgive me if this question is very simple, but does anyone know what entity attributes get saved when leaving/returning to a scene? I get that it saves the sprite, but it doesn't seem to save anything else (that I've checked for so far). Is there a way around this other than creating library-of-congress sized arrays to save attributes (like entity.Interactive)?

Hi skuttleman and welcome!

You probably want to check in the SceneEditor on the Properties tab

"Remember nodes states"
"Including sprites"

Did it help?

Yeah. I got that far...

What I was wondering is what else does "SaveState" save? I saw in the version history that it is supposed to save active/inactive. I know from playing around that it saves the sprite. But it doesn't seem to save, for example, the Caption if I change it at run-time. Is it too much trouble to ask for a list of saved attributes so I know what I need to make global variables for?

Thanks!

P.S. I am really enjoying using Wintermute. Thank you for a great tool!

It stores activity, alpha color, caption and (optionally) the assigned sprite.
