How about some save game info?

Post by number47 »

Would it be possible to add save game info in load menu, something like the date and hour it was created? It would be much easier to load the proper save or autosave if that info was present...especially in situations when the game crashes and we have no idea which save was last...(apart from going to save game folder and looking the file details for the info :-( )

EDIT: If anyone feels the same, feel free to leave a comment...at the moment I feel pretty lonely :lol:

Want! I hate going through multiple autosaves plus my original file to find out which one is the most up to date. Please Battlegoat!!!

Such as?

This is another feature that would take time to implement, just like anything else. I have a number of features that rank higher on my personal wish list. We don't announce upcoming features until they are completed.

:oops: sorry to have bothered you...with something that is too low on your wish list

EDIT: and please lock this thread since there is no more need for it

no need to lock it, others might want to vote for it higher on the priority list. It is on our list of possible improvements.

I only suggested this because I thought of it as a temporary quick fix/relief until the CTD's are resolved. As the save games are now listed in alphabetical order, after the CTD person needs to check which save game or autosave is the last created. If you can make ingame save game list to show in order of creation, it would eliminate the need for additional info...there are more ways than one to solve this issue but I'm sure you are well aware of this...

[_]O
my mistake was that I presumed this would be easy to do/add, so if this takes as much resourses as solving any other major issue, than by all means forget about this... :wink:

The more I play and the more my game crashes, the more I wish I had this... Rather than having to root through each individual save and autosave to work out which is the most recent... Even a little box showing when the save was created would be nice!
Much Thanks

move to SR1936, please.

[_]O I know you said this is way down on the list but if this feature takes a week to program (and I seriously doubt it would take you that long), I would gladly wait for a week longer for a release than to get the game sooner without this feature as I believe all that experienced game crashes know how annoying and difficulf was reloading of the last useable save in previous SRCW game. :wink:

I too agree that more detailed save info would be nice to see or at least make it to where the host can name multi-player saves, this is coming from a guy with over 50 to 70 GBs of mp saves

I vote on this one, but it is not as high on my wishlist as selective unit trad (buy)...
