How to save my game
« on: 23 July 2017, 00:49:24 »
Hi everyone,

Firstly let me say how exciting it is for me to find this website, I pretty much spent the 1990s playing SWOS on my good old Amiga 1200 and I'm blown away by the work you guys have put in so we can still play it now with updated squads. I just started a career mode and loved rolling back the years to 1996!

What I'm going to ask is probably a really dumb question, though I've had a good hunt around on your website and can't find it. Can I save my game and pick it up again next time? I know on other emulators it's often something like F5 to create a save state and then F8 to load it. Is there any similar way of doing that here?

Apologies if that's as stupid a question as I suspect it is, I really am a novice when it comes to all this!

Thanks!

You play the Amiga version?

Just click on "Offline" button.  Then you can easily save in the game, and load your saved file (career/season) later!

Hi Playaveli,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, I'm on the Amiga version and I'm playing it offline. It's great to know that you can save the game. Usually you'd click on 'save career' and then insert a save disk to save your game on to. How do I do that now, on a laptop without an old floppy disk drive?

Thanks again

It's all emulated. Just click on save and wait some moments. It works! ;)
(if you play windowed, you see little number revolving at the bottom. That's the emulated floppy drive.)

Ahhhh, I knew it must be something simple that I was missing!

Thanks so much!
