Because of target_md5 business for example?
Because I rename the standard target names to get recognizable savegame names?
With the current abbreviation, if you add Monkey Amiga and Monkey DOS-CD for example, you end up with one target being [monkey] and one being [monkeya].
Now, I often purge the scummvm.ini because I do a lot of testing/reporting.
If I want to use those savegames then later on, I would have to either rename the savegame names, which get named after the games target and guess with which version of monkey it's been created with, since the savegames are not compatible.
If I give those gametargets meaningful descriptions like [monkeyamigade] instead of [monkeya], I end up with clearly distinguishable savegames.....
That's what I also did with the target names for fan-translations.
I bet those who use my preconfigured targets are quite happy with that?
Any feedback would be great....
One more thought regarding savegames:
Wouldn't it be better to give all the savegames one common extension and count the savegame number in the first part of the filename instead?
I got troubles with StuffIt-Expander for example who claims all. the *.s01 and so on files.
Some standard .svm extension for savegames really would look nice to me....
