I have been learning VB for around 2 weeks now. I have been making a few simple games but i haven't been able to save them. I was wondering if someone could tell me how to make a save file, and how to wright and read from it.

The file would need to include things like Items, health, fat and muscle as well as where the image of the player is at the save point , or time of save.

(I haven't decided weather to have a save point or a save option yet.)

There are several ways to do this. Probably the most simple is to write information to a text file, and load that information when the program is opened again.

I got the below code from a forum that i don't remember the name of. (I have the worlds worst memory.)

It works great for saving and loading information from one text box, but I want it to save and load information of lots of text boxs. How would it need to be changed for it to save and load information from more than 1 text box?


Private Sub command1_Click()

Open "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\testfile.txt" For Input As #1
text1.Text = Input(LOF(1), #1)
Close #1

End Sub

Private Sub command2_Click()

Open "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\testfile.txt" For Output As #1
Print #1, text1.Text
Close #1

End Sub

It's been a long time since I've done this. I've zipped two chapters worth of course work that I did three years ago. The two chapters worked with saving and retrieving data in a number of ways (not for a game, but the code for saving and retrieving data is there).

Here's my zipped file:

If you have questions about particular projects, I can become familiar with them again.

I'm glad it helped. You will notice how I played with graphic effects in those assignments, too.

There are several distance to do this. Probably the most elongate is to correspond collection to a book file, and burden that information when the show is unsealed again.
