Here's a poorly made example file featuring the array object, frame one involves saving and loading using names (I.E. you type in "george" and click save then you have to have that same thing typed in when you load).

Frame two is simply saving and loading with a set name: "save".
(ignore the last two events in frame two)

Enjoy!

Here you go. Look at the code. I commented it a bit.

I have no idea why somebody would prefer ini over array.
Shed some light on this perhaps?

array files are larger.

A one by one by one array storing a 4 character string is 34bytes

A ini storing the same thing in a group and an item of the same length is only 17bytes
ini's are readable outside of mmf without much effort.


Of course this is all entirely dependent upon the programmer. Large Cnc array's do compress well because they have large patterns of repeating characters.


If you're going for small size however I'd suggest the binary object.

The amount of data you would have to be save/loading would have to be a lot to notice much of a difference.

Also, this guy here is only saving three values.
Explain THAT!

Thanks for the example UrbanMonk I think itll help. And the only reason I didn't ask about using an array is that I never learned how to use it

THAT'S WHAT EXAMPLE FILES ARE FOR, LIKE THE ONE I POSTED!


Uhhh replace "edittext" with "save" in frame two's comment (I was in a hurry, okay?)
but that doesn't mean you have to use my example, there's very good ones on this site, simply run a search in "downloads" or "articles" using the word "array".

Sorry but I think ini's fine for what I'm doing. But what if you want to check whether the player has for example the Bone Saw, a pistol and a lazer? Could they each be strings in a group called something like current weapons?

Sure. You can organize the data any way you like. It was just an example.

So if you buy a gun at the shop I add the weapon to group Weapons as a string or object i guess. Then can I make a condition that if you press 2 and item Gun is in group weapons, set gun to player? Just checking this with you before I try it

I'd do it like this.

[Save1]
gun=1

0 not having the gun and 1 having the gun

But like I said whatever you like.
