For very long projects, it's imperative to offer users the ability to save their progress to return to later. As such, VNgen includes basic file functions for saving, loading, and deleting stored data. These functions are not meant as a replacement for custom save functions, but rather to serve as templates for advanced users while providing a serviceable solution for users who only need to save and load VNgen data without any additional game data of their own.
As of version 1.0.8, it is also possible to save and load data from a ds_map, allowing users to read and write VNgen save data in their own files, combined with any custom data and save format their unique projects demand.
In this section we'll examine available file functions which will allow you to save, load, and delete your progress through VNgen projects.
