Playmaker: Saving and Loading

To install or update the Playmaker actions, simply go to the Assets/Easy Save 2 menu and select Enable or Update PlayMaker Action.

You should also do this after updating Easy Save from the Asset Store.

Saving All Variables

Easy Save 2 Save All ActionThe Save All action attempts to save all variables in the variables list. Variables will be skipped if they are not on the Supported Types list.

Filename is the name or path of the file where we want to store our data.

Encrypt and Encryption Password choose whether we want to encrypt our data, and the password we want to use to encrypt it.

If Save Fsm Variables is ticked, the local variables for this FSM will be saved.

If Save Global Variables is ticked, the global variables accessible to all FSMs will be saved.

Saving Individual Variables

To save a variable declared in Playmaker, we use the Save actions. For example, to save an Int variable, we use the Save Int action.

Playmaker-Easy-Save-2-Save-ActionSave Value is the value we want to save. This can refer to a Variable in the Variables list, or you can enter your own value.

Unique Tag is a unique name to identify this piece of save data. It is usually best if you set this to the name of the variable.

Save File is the name of the file we’ll save our data in. Leave this as default unless you definitely need to specify your own file.

Before trying to load a piece of data you should check that it exists using the Exists action.

Playmaker-Easy-Save-2-Exists-ActionIf Exists tells Easy Save what state to go to if there’s data to load at the given tag.

If Does Not Exist tells Easy Save what state to go to if there’s not data to load at the given tag.

Unique Tag is the tag we used to save the data we’re checking the existence of.

Save File is the file we should look for this tag in.

Loading All Variables

The Load All action loads data previously saved with Easy Save and attempts to automatically assign it back to your Playmaker variables. If a variable doesn’t exist, it will skip it.

Easy Save Load All Playmaker ActionFilename is the name or path of the file we want to load from.

Encrypt and Encryption Password choose whether we want to decrypt our data, and the password we want to use to decrypt it.

If Load Fsm Variables is ticked, it will load the local variables accessible in this FSM.

If Load Global Variables is ticked, it will load the global variables accessible in all FSMs.

Loading Individual Variables

If a piece of saved data exists, we can load it using the Load actions.

Playmaker-Easy-Save-2-Load-ActionLoad Value is the Playmaker variable we want to load our data into.

Unique Tag is the tag we used when saving the data we’re loading.

Save File is the file is the file we specified when saving the data we’re loading.
