Patch:Save Game (Dreams)
This page deals with patches relating to loading, saving and saved games in Keen Dreams. For saved game filenames see Patch:Files and filenames. Related patches can be found at Patch:Main menu. This page does include patches relating to loading games.
In Dreams, games can be saved anywhere at any time. They are saved to a file SAVEGMx.KDR and store the entire contents of the level memory including all sprite positions and actions. This allows for 'save scumming' where a random or dangerous situation is replayed over and over from a loaded game until maximum success occurs.
Patches relating to the savegame menu can be found in a section of the main menu page. These patches include the number of save slots, images used and their positions.
This window appears when the player selects a game to load. It appears over the menu before the screen clears and the level displays. It contains a single line of text composed of three parts, the 'Loading' text, the saved game name and an ending apostrophe. (Interestingly the first apostrophe is a different font character.)
