While doing some dumpster
diving for code in the old archived UDK forums, I found
something that I think needs to be on this webpage.
Its a........kismet save/load game we haven't seen! It
was just randomly thrown there in a post, so no tutorial
for it, but after I learned from the tutorials on the
I managed to understand it :) In fact, it looks and feel
just like the
UltimateSaveSystem but made even more simple.
no dll, which might
help people with packaging
only one kismet node
to play with (But you have to get creative with it)
once you make a save,
it automatically creates a folder called
SavedKismetVariables with the .bin saves in your UDK
game installation folder automatically so it is in C
drive>udk>in my case udk 2013-7>
UltimateSaveSystem is 32bit dll and only makes saves
for a 32bit udk exe game but this script makes saves
for a 64bit udk game too. In fact, the saves made
between 32bit games and 64bit are completely
compatible and working. So if someone wants to use
more ram in his game and make it 64bit, than this
script will do it.
it makes saves even
when using¨¨play from here¨¨
UltimateSaveSystem is somewhat more complete and has
the ability to delete saves. This script you can
only delete saves manually from the folder or
Has only been
installed and tested on a 32bit system. (But tests
are still being done.)
This is like a small tutorial:
Place the 2 scripts in
your udk src folder as always just like the
And in kismet you will find the script in New
Action>Sim>Save/Load string variables. Right click over
the kismet will expose the option for a object variable
There should be a small test level called
Saving64bit.udk with 2 simple events tutorial.
There are 2 triggers in the level.
If you press the one in front of the cube>it will hide
the cube and save that is hidden.
If you press the trigger next to the robot>he will run
for 6 seconds>save>and start playing another looping
animation and when you exit the game and enter it again
he will be where you left him still playing his
animation and the cube will be hidden and the triggers
will be destroyed so that we don't activate them again.
I believe this script should go hand by hand with the
If people want a 32 bit game than the
is the way to go or if they want a 64bit game and a
32bit game exes in one game than this script should be
the best choice.
When I make more things with this save system I will
send them to this page.
Also, I am working with a coder right now to see if we
can port the 32bit dll Ultimate Save System to work with
64bit UDK. If I can achieve it, I will send the files to
