You can check and edit the save game files manually that way, if only for verification, and you can let people do what they want with their own data. [/quote] Yes, how would I do that? That is what I am looking for. I want to add serialization in it though.
Tuxmascot posted a topic in For BeginnersI am writing a text-based RPG game using some OOP and polymorphism. I wanted to add a game save function to it, but I am at a dead end as to how to do this. I don't want to use a basic 'ofstream' function, but I want to make sure the player can't edit the save file. So I was thinking about serialization or something. It also needs to be efficient for performance. I am just intimidated by all the options and I don't know what to pick or use. Any way to do this? Thanks!
