Removing GameSave Manager from the cloud table


Recommended Posts

Sorry, I guess I should've made a thread before, can we safely remove GameSame Manager from the cloud table? I noticed that on the development wiki it no longer shows up in the table, I was wondering if we could just remove any cloud entries with GSM in it. It never made too much sense to me anyway.

Why? Is it not working anymore or something? For games that have no official Cloud support it's pretty useful to know that alternative provides it to a degree IMO

If not multiplatform.. at least, you know, open source?

 

EDIT: ok, if not SyncToCloud (why did we remove it in the first place? I can't remember) at least MASGAU seems pretty solid.

I don't have anything wtih GSM, I use it myself quite a bit.

​I'm also looking for an open source, multiplatform solution for backing up my game saves.

Oh now I get it, but even if that's official why would you remove it manually? Surely bots can take care of that if necessary?

Certain games haven't been released on Steam (and other services in general), the cloud table was kinda pointless on those pages.

Yes and each time I try to remove it for such games, I get a complain that I remove it. So please leave Save Game Manager.O.o

I disagree. It makes it easier to know that you can backup saves for those ancient games that'll probably never make it to digital stores.

GameSave Manager should be separated from the cloud table into something else in my mind. Keeping track of all the games GSM supports is a bit pointless though, when the website already has a far more up to date list than the one on the wiki, there should probably be a better way of doing this, instead of manually tracking each game individually.

 

The current implementation isn't too great, it's kinda there.

I never undestood why we should keep the cloud table for retail games which have nothing to do with those services.

I agree it's pain in the ass to add manually, but it's more of "hey here is a way to backup your saves" IMO.

IDC really. It's just that I found it this way so I'm bit biased :D

Hey. I have a mindblowed idea.

 

What if we had an agreement with one of these backup programs guy?

Something like an api for him to pull new paths or for us to push on his git or whatever.

 

This way the table could possibly make sense even for those thousands of DOS games out there

Actually I was hoping, one day I'd be able to write such thing myself. Well in a way, I'm able to do it now - but that'd be really junky. Either way - yeah, if I could easily add new configurations to GameSave Manager - I probably would. But doing it via Forum and hoping someone implements that... UUuuuugh. No :D

I'm not sure if our Game data template allows for that right now, but in theory it should be possible. Biggest problem would be inaccurate paths.
