Default SAVING Final Fantasy VII or Final Fallacy

I've looked everywhere for the answer, even at abandonia reloaded forums (reloaded is where I got the games) and I can't find an answer and it's making me crazy!

HOW DO YOU SAVE THE DARN GAME? I pick "save" (from a crystal, in the case of Final Fallacy) and it asks me if I want to save, I say yes, it asks me what file...then no matter what I do it doesn't save the game. Someone please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What OS are you using?
Is the game directory set to read only?

I am using XP.

Hmmm, how do I check the game directory for read only, and how is that fixed?

(Thanks for replying I'm freaking out! I downloaded the game to a flash drive and took it home to play...no 'net at home...and got really far and then couldn't save and I have to start over!):nuts:

Right-click it in the Explorer and select "Properties".

Also, go to where the game's executable is and choose the Compatibility tab under "Properties". Set it to Windows 95.

Welba, tried those, and it didn't work. I found what you pointed to easily, and noticed the "read only" setting, which I changed. I even played around with compatibilities. Hmmmm...what a bummer.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll welcome more if anyone has any ideas.

I was about to mention the read-only problem.

Select all your folders for that game and remove the read-only tag. Then try again and tell us if it works.

In final fallacy you can only save when you are in the world map or near a crystal. you should press space once or twice and thats it! are you doing this?

you should install or re-install the latest version of the game, maybe you have a version without the saving folder.

Pd: Final Fallacy is a very very funny game but it is only a demo, remember (it stops in a certain point. the Author stopped it like this!!) All is written in his web page, just google it)

To all who have responded: thanks.

I still can't get it to work. Yes I am at the crystal for final fallacy.

I tried removing read only options, and it reverts right back to read only. This is a problem for any of the ASCII games I have downloaded. It must be an error in rpg2000? I tried reloading.

I am just out of ideas. I have a bunch of games that use rpg2000 downloaded and I have just been playing until I get killed, but then have to start all over if I play again.

It's a shame, because I love these types of games.

Anyway, thanks for trying to help, all.

So, you mean that this is happening with all your rpg2000 games?
then i would believe it is because of your version of rpg maker 2000
i would recommend you to download a later version and the rtpe and some patches on this site
You can even thread your question there as they are experts on this kind of games only.
have you tried with 3 the hard way or breath of fire?
these games are great!
