Hi Sean,

I saw your post on the R4 message board about saving the game. I'm wondering if there is any way to _delete_ saved games, as I seem to be getting quite a collection (most of which are useless now).

btw, I thought you might like to know we have started an A page for h2 researchers to discuss the game: A3072746 (under construction).

thanks,
kea.

Hi Kea -

I'm afraid there's no way for users to delete saved games as yet - but we'll certainly treat it as a feature request.

SAVE and RESTORE were part of the original game, but there was never a facility to delete - as the game ran on a home computer, users were presumably expected to quit the game and remove excess baggage from their floppy in the usual manner.

We're due to release a new version of the server very shortly, but it's bug-fixes only - no new features.

I'll keep you posted here on progress smiley - smiley

Cheers,

Sean.

Thanks Sean smiley - smiley

In the past I've only played online at douglasadams.com so the new save/restore feature is well appreciated smiley - ok.

In the meantime I'll have to be more careful about how many games I save smiley - blush

regards,
kea.
