Hi everyone!

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

Issue 1:

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.

Issue 2:

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.

Thanks!

Can you upload a scenario so I can check the trigger setup?

Hello Mindgem, here is the link to my scenario: https://ufile.io/mt2ib

I cleared all the triggers, hoping you can add just the right ones, I would really appreciate it. :)
Also what about the AI files, why don't they work for me, do they have to do something with the triggers?
And finally, what about the save/load feature? :)

Thank you so much for the time you're taking to check it!

Incorrect triggers block the AI file loading.

Could you post the one with the tirggers you made?

Hello again, I didn't keep the ones with the triggers, but I wanted to re-add them now.

I have no idea what's going on anymore, in PP1.3 editor nothing seems to work, not even unlocking units and buildings, however in Celeste editor a few buildings could be unlocked while many others just didn't show up.

I already wasted days with this, which is too much for a few hours of enjoyment that didn't even work out. I'll leave it and possibly return for FireSinging in a couple of months or so.

Thank you anyways! :)

Here is a idea and what I do with my maps and creating them, I use all the 12 kingdom maps(in fold Cyprus) I keep the settings and Als re create the whole map. :) a lot of fun.

P.S maybe you can enough check what Als settings are on other maps.
