porteussave.dat vs porteussave.dat.xzm [Solved]

Post#1 by Ed_P » 20 Jan 2014, 19:17

Who wins?

I have a save.dat file and I have a save.dat.zxm module, when I start Porteus with just the extramod= cheatcode pointing to the folder with my mods, JRE and the save.dat.xzm, life is fine. But not completely current. When I start Porteus with changes=EXIT Porteus is current but lacks the JRE module. Can I use the two cheatcodes together and if I do which .dat file will be used, the current one or the .xzm one.

You can use these 2 cheatcodes together but not for the same file. Wins last loaded, in your case .dat
ps your changes file need not .dat extension, can be .xzm or whatever you want

Yup, the last one loaded won. Which was the xzm file that didn't have the acpi changes.

Thanks tome. :friends:
