So I got that save file working. And bonus.. discovered I have two save files, one from the very beginning of the story, and one way past where I have written. So I am left with three choices….
- Start completely over. Pretty straight forward, I’d lose the beginning stuff I have (which I love), although I could rewrite it.
- Start from the day 1 save and play seven days to match the seven days worth I have written up. This would allow me to add new screenshots and continue with the story as I want to without being constrained to how the game went when I played further. Would require re-setting up the world (ghosts, etc.) that I had done in the game file I took further in.
- Use the Week 4 Day 5 played file in conjunction with the notes I have taken from it way back then. Would require very little set up, just the mods… however, I don’t have as many screenshots as I thought I had of the time that’s been played but not written into the story, and it would make things harder to progress the story as I want to.
I’m leaning heavily towards option two. I already wrote up days 8-10 in a new post, which needs proofing and editing, then would be ready to go. I’d lose all the time I played in the played file, but I think I’m okay with it. It would totally give me the freedom I want with the story, and allow me to stage screenshots better than the ones I have from 2012. I’ve already gone through the posts I have posted on my blog (prologue and three chapters) and edited them so they’re the way I want them.
If your interested, they’re here:
Expect to see chapter four in the next few days, as I said, it just needs editing.
I’ve spent way too much time on this considering I still have testing to do for Switch Three of the Apartment Switch, which is due out Sunday…. but that’s okay. I’m still having fun! Now, back to my testing …. (if only I can get this story out of my head long enough to play!)
