For a game I need a ‘Save code’ (or whatever it is called) (something like the first C&C game used to have, but for a different purpose). With this I mean a code that will contain all your progress and can be used by someone else, somewhere else to pick up where you left. The game will store ±30 parameters into this code which should be about 16 characters long and may contain letters and numbers. Obviously the easiest solution would be to instead use a 30 character save code, but since most parameters will only have 2-3 possible values I think it can be condensed into a shorter save code that’s easier to use.
I’ve been thinking about it and could use a fresh look on this problem. Any insight is welcome as I don’t expect an easy answer to this. Thanks for your time.
PS: I’m new to the forums and I’m not sure if I put this in the right subforum.
