Multiplayer's save game problems

Post by Chameleon_111 »

Good day!
The game has an issue with saving and loading an online save game.

The game is saved here by default (??WHY??):
GZDOOM\SAVE\doom.id.doom2.commercial\save0.zds

But to use this save, you need copy it to the the folder:
GZDOOM\SAVE\doom.id.doom2.commercial\SAVE\save0.zds
Otherwise, the game DOES NOT SEE the save

P.S.:
Inside "ini" file:
save_dir=

also an error occurs if you use the command: -savedir "path"

also an error occurs if you use a command (for loading your savegame) other than: -loadgame "Path"
If you specify some other directory here, then an error occurs.

Sorry for my English.

Good day.
It's a pity to see how the multiplayer theme is ignored. I will have to go back to the previous version where there was no error with saves (4.8.2)...
However, i hope that the mistake will be corrected

I am fairly certain this is a user error so I'd need the exact steps you are taking for both loading and saving the game.

1) We are starting a Multiplayer game.
2) Save the game.
3) We leave the game.
4) On the command line for loading the game we write the following:
GZDOOM -file nw3.wad -loadgame save3 (on each computer)

The game gives the above error. There are no such errors in version 4.8.2

After additional tests, it became a little more clear why you said that:
1) If you just install the GZDOOM version 4.10 - everything works fine
2) But if you install version 4.10 on top of 4.8.2 where there is already an portable ini file, this problem occurs
