Is it possible to save at mid-game?
« on: April 03, 2016, 07:40:45 AM »

Hi Craig,

1. Is it possible to save the game mid-game in battle? Once in a battle, shouldn't I be able to save and leave if I need to run errant or do other stuff?

2. Is it possible to save in the merchant screen before any purchase? So I could try out the effect of different items.

Thanks

Hey Jimmy! Mid-battle saving isn't supported, unfortunately--my advice is just to put your computer to sleep and leave the game running.

I always wondered if this was a gameplay design decision or was it just not possible?

The latter--the way that TT was coded, this feature would have been extremely difficult to add!

That said, I did a much better job structuring things in the new engine, so adding this feature there turned out to be totally doable.
