How do I check if a save slot is already full?
So you have made your own save menu and you would like to add the message "There is already a saved game in this slot. Are you sure you want to save?" so that the player knows he/she will erase a previous save if he/she chooses yes .
This can be done with one script, one text box, and one tag.
The text box and tag
Make a text box.
"There is already a saved game in this slot. Are you sure you want to save?"
Enable the choice for this text box. The choice will turn a tag ON if you pick "YES" and it will turn the same tag OFF if you pick "NO"
For the sake of this example, we will pretend that you are using text box 15 and tag 2.
plotscript, save slot, which, begin if (save slot used (which)) then( #check if save slot is filled or not show text box (15) wait for text box if(check tag(2)) then( save in slot(which) ) ) else ( #if save slot is empty, there no need to ask. Game is saved automatically. save in slot (which) ) end
