Cheat Search Results Panel Crash Recorvery
« on: May 25, 2020, 12:48:44 pm »
Ive just lost an entire multiplayer results  again for the 3rd time, and had to force close.

We really do need a results section temp save to file on PJ failier/Hang/Crash situation.

Even if we cant then load back into the results panel, we will have a cheat Code: Name: format in a file to at least recover.

A full recovery would involve a save state with some additional information saved for the cheat window.

A recovery of the items in the Cheat creation should be simple enough, I can just write that out to file on creation and reload that when Cheat Search is opened.
It shouldn't be too complicated, I'll just have to find a unique name to attach it to (The file name should do nicely, I think)

If you're after a full recovery that's going to take a bit of thought.
I'm not sure what place would be best to do that, nor have I given thought to what would be necessary to save from the cheat search window.

If you want the cheat creation save I should be able to do that, though...
Would you want it to be deleted when the Cheat Search window is closed or would this be something to keep around until manually removed?
Note that this wouldn't reactivate them, the cheats would be stored "deactivated", simply the memory address and the value that was last played with would be reloaded.

Yes this is something i have given some thought to.
I think it would be beneficial to have this kind of maintain in Cheat Creation even when dialog is closed, and on reload of dialog to be in a disabled state. This way we get to keep cheats we have already tested and not saved yet from a crash recovery or even after dialog close. But the benefit of on reload having them disabled so it does not keep crashing so to speak.
