Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar MARDEK 2 Save Problem Wed 5th Nov 2008 6:02pm

Category: MARDEK

Yes, I am aware that there is a save problem that has suddenly come up in MARDEK 2. It's something to do with Flash Player 10, but I have no idea what. I simply do not know HOW to fix it, and can you imagine what it's like to make a game which works swimmingly for months then all of a sudden some crucial feature becomes crippled by no action of your own, you have no possible way of fixing it, and you get loads of bordering-on-angry demands to fix it or else they'll never play anything you made ever again?!/1/ o_O

I have been looking up things that it could possibly be, and I've found nothing. The old files for chapter 2 are also not even on this new computer that I got recently; all the MARDEK files on this computer contain chapter 3 data. I have the old files on another computer, but that's in a box somewhere in this house (as it has been since I moved country), and I am unsure where.

So, should I spend ages and ages being frustrated trying to find my old computer, trying to work with the poorly-made old code that I've just spent months trying to get away from by rewriting the game's code from scratch, and so on, just so then people will stop complaining, or should I just continue to work on MARDEK 3, which will likely work fine when it comes to saving?

Bah. I hate problems like that that suddenly come up. What did you DO, Adobe?!

Anyway... progress on MARDEK 3 has been going poorly lately. All my motivation was basically removed from me for personal emotional reasons that I'm not going to go into, but the situation that caused those emotions is resolved now so I should be getting back on track... Though I am a few days behind my schedule now. Hmm.
Also, making tilesets is really dull and off-putting for some unknown reason! o_O
I think working all day every day on the same thing is also taking its toll on me... But hopefully this is just a temporary feeling and I can still get things done by Christmas. That's almost two months away, after all!

Yes i agree with omega18. We have been waiting quite a long time for the third chapter in what i consider one of the best flash game series of all time (With me, Mardek and Max Mesira are competing for the best.)

I say just keep working on Mardek 3, because it will have Mardek 2 in it, so they can just deal with it, shut up, and let you get your work done.

i know what is causing it psuedo, adobe flash player 10 uses a different kind of files, just don't update it to avoid it. they say that on dragonfable.com they had the same problem to with flash.

well... i havent experienced that save thing...
has anybody tryed to increase the storage space for this site?
maybe it'll help... just right click on the window(of any game on the site) select settings and then go to the tab named Local Storage (you probably wount even need to change tabs...), then select the size you want... i have it at unlimited...

if that doesnt work then maybe its caused by the browser you use... i use IE...

ps: it's my first post!!!!
although i've been on this site for alot of time now...

Gah... I just had a super long post that didn't go through... again... and forgot to copy it until after I said "Say it". :( Makes me very sad.

Anyways... the gist of it was: real life is more important than everything else. Take time to yourself if you need it, and take time to relax. If nothing else, then the young adults in your fanbase completely understand needing to take a break. Play some games, or read, or go outside... whatever your fancy is to relax... then go for it. I know going outside helps me when I am programming, because it gives me a break, takes my mind off what I'm doing, and lets me go in with a fresh idea.

As far as M2/3, work on M3, since the problem should be fixed with that anyway, and if people are going to leave you because of a glitch that isn't your fault on a game you offer for FREE, then let them. They can go complain to some other game developer about all the issues they have with their game. (Internet) People can be very stupid sometimes.

But hey... if you ever need any help with testing and stuff, I am willing to help. I am in college for Software Engineering, so I know a lot about software development, design, testing, etc... but it's up to you. I don't know a whole lot about Flash... you probably know more than I ever will. But if you want my help, all you need to do is ask.

I feel like I have more to say... but I don't know. Keep up the good work Pseudo, and work on what you have motivation for. You have a supportive fanbase, at least for the most part, and we want to see you come out with a superior game, and don't care how long it takes (or at least I don't).

Stay strong, and keep on trucking. :)

Well, as you've said time and again, the old code will be obsolete when you release M3 with the new versions of 1&2. Plus the fact that you hate working with it.

I'd say perhaps put a note in descriptions of M2 on the other sites it's one saying that Flash 10 can't play it properly, but that you will release a fixed version.....because you ARE. it's probably some clash in the old code, and since you've got RID of it.......why fix something your going to replace anyway? And possibly putting a note up might just divert a FEW of the ranters......slim chance, but it's possible.
