I'm back enjoying Project Penelope again! At least that was my plan until nothing seemed to work out. All I am trying to achieve is creating my own scenario, playing it and being able to save / load the game.
Note: I am including here everything rather than creating a new topic for half of the issue in a different category, sorry if that's an issue.
I use PP 1.3
I am able to create a scenario, though I am not sure if I am doing it right, I've been messing with it for 2 days to make it work while "researching" forums. I re-created it in PP 1.2, same happens.
AIs don't do anything (aside from attacking me if I pass by, villagers are sleeping well though), I added triggers and resources around them. I also set the player's data as computer and added dozens of AI .xs files (one at a time).
What happens and what I assume is the issue: No matter what AI .xs file is added it does't ever work on game start. I receive errors about the .xs files that cannot be compiled, sometimes I can continue playing (with the afk AIs) while other times it freezes completely on this message.
Note: I downloaded custom scenarios and the same thing is happening (without error messages), soldiers, towers attack me if I pass by, but villagers count sheep.
Save / load feature doesn't seem to work.
I figured from the forums that after I save a game, I can't load it right away from the menu. If I am right I have to start another scenario and then access the quick menu and load the game, is it so?
Well, the issue comes with saving the game. I was able to save third party scenarios, though load never worked for me, but I couldn't save the ones I created. The saving notification box didn't appear at all and no save game files were found at all in folders (after cleaning those of 3rd parties of course).
I would really need fixes for these 2. I can play Project Celeste, but I cannot enjoy it! I am looking for long term gaming experience on huge maps with save/load feature. So Project Penelope is my choice but I need help with this.
