Kitkat save problem

Hello,

There is a solution with no root access. Scummvm needs to use a new framework. With this framework it doesn't matter if you want to write in the sd, ext sd even in google drive

The pitfall is that the framework is new to kitkat so I don't know scummvm enough to evaluate the migration to the new sdk and adapt the code...

More info in http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html

Most of file explorers are adapting their code and seems it is working...

Hope this helps

The pitfall is that the new framework is beyond idiotic. It's only accessible via Java and requires an *intent* to save a file (seriously?). Unless there's some way to get permission to write to a path (and I don't think there is), this isn't going to get fixed unless someone provides a patch.
