Can I save my created game, then make a new one?

Post by Xepera_maSet » September 18th, 2017, 9:48 pm

Hey all, I just got this editor and it's amazing. I had no idea people still modded and played this, best week ever!!! Anyways, I'm on like level 6 of my level designing, and I'm wondering if I can somehow save the game externally, play my created game, and create a new map in the editor without losing my previous map? Like let's say I 100% change all 14 levels and I'm happy with it, but now I want to make another game. Can I save the current full game in a way where it's playable, then create a whole new one? Or will I just have to override the levels and just play them by testing them? I know literally nothing about doing this stuff. Thanks in advanced!!!

Hey Xepera_maSet, welcome to the Princed forum.

Prince of Persia 1 (PoP1) is in the prince/ directory of the editor.
You can backup your creation by copying the prince/ directory somewhere else.
Then, to play your standalone work, you can use DOSBox (download here) to launch PRINCE.EXE.
To create something new, either copy a default PoP1 (download here) into prince/ or just edit your previous work.
Or re-download the entire level editor, also an option.

Yes, nostalgia is a powerful thing. ;)
