How to preserve game process when updating git version?

Postby forum » 07 Jun 2020, 09:26

Hello,

How can I preserve game process when updating from one git version to another git version, or from stable version to git?

This is only about the game progress, not the settings.

Or would preserving settings also be possible without negative side effects?

Thanks for your hints! :)
Best regards, 7wells

the game progress profile will stay compatible for a while, so update git version doesn't matter

So can I simply download (or compile myself) the latest git version and install it over an existing one? Thank you!

And how can I take over game progress from a device with Android to another device with Windows 10? In which folders/files is the game progress saved, or is it impossible to carry that over to a different OS?

Yes, I can do adb shell and also know the location of the game - look there (also for others interested):
https://forum.freegamedev.net/viewtopic ... ell#p91863
https://forum.freegamedev.net/viewtopic ... ath#p91870

So the root path is one of the following for Android:
/sdcard/Android/data/org.supertuxkart.stk/
/sdcard/Android/data/org.supertuxkart.stk_beta/

But I am unsure in which folders/files, game progress is stored. If somebody knows, could you please let me know? Thank you! :)

There's a section in the FAQ about folder locations - "Where is the configuration stored?" on the bottom of the page.

You might get lucky with the Linux instructions.

Thank you! On Android, it is this:
{l Code}: {l Select All Code}
./sdcard/Android/data/org.supertuxkart.stk/files/supertuxkart/home/supertuxkart/config-0.10/
config.xml
highscore.xml
input.xml
players.xml
server_config.xml ( <= This one I already knew before. :blush: )

(and some other files)

I will have a look into those (and make a backup first on my device before copying over ;) )
Best regards, 7wells
