Game Doesn't Warn on Non-Writeable Save Directory

Recommended Posts

As the title suggests, the game will not say anything if the save directory is not writeable, and happily pretend it's saving the game when, in reality, data is going to la-la land.

The reason this came about is because I used to have my save directory in my Dropbox folder, and I had a soft link to it from where it usually resides, so my saves were synced between computers. Then I switched from Dropbox to Sync, forgot to update my link, and started a new game, and every time a save was triggered, the game displayed the usual "GAME SAVED" screen, etc., and never said anything about a problem. Only later did I discover nothing was happening.

Ultimately not a big problem, and my fault entirely, but from a software development perspective, there should be something broadcast to the user about this.

Thank you for a great game.
