Move Lands of Lore Savegame from Android to Windows

Post by zingzing » Fri Aug 10, 2018 8:16 am

Hi,

I currently struggle to use the save game file from Lands of Lore I create on the Android port to Windows.
I use version 2.0 on both. But even the file names of the save games totally differ: the Android version stores file "_save00x.dat", on Windows its "lol-de.00x". I tried compressing them with gzip and renaming them. But I couldn't even make them visible in the Windows version.

Any ideas are appreciated.
Thanks

That is very odd. As far as I can tell, the Android version should be producing the same savegame file naming and format as the Windows version since this file naming is controlled by the Kyra engine code i.e.
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/blob ... d.cpp#L234

Looking at the code for the Android and AndroidSDL backends, this appears to be using the standard default save code...
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree ... ends/saves
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree ... rm/android
https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree ... androidsdl

So really not sure what is going on here... I would suggest that the _save000.dat file may not be the LoL savegame?

Also, what Android device are you using this on, and what version of Android?

Just tried this on my Android 4.4 device using ScummVM 2.0.0 from Google Play store.

The save path is under <install location>/org.scummvm.scummvm/files/.local/share/scummvm/saves and my multilingual version of LoL created a file for the german version named lol-cd.000

Thanks for the fast reply!
The files I found are stored in the game folder itself. The contain the name of the ingame save point in ASCII at the beginning.
I can't lookup the exact Android version (since I'm on vacation), but the device is a Samsung 7" Tab 3 lite tablet.

After comming back, I'll definitely look up the path you posted. Maybe I find the correct save games there.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_Tab_3_7.0

That should be either Android Jellybean (4.1.2) or if upgraded, Android Kitkat (4.4.2).

That is quite similar to mine, so not sure what that dat file is, but check for the saves folder...
