How to label a save file depending on the route?

#1 Post by Batensan » Fri Jun 03, 2016 6:22 pm

Hello, I'd like to know how to add text to save files, basically.
For example, if you're playing Steve's route, when you save, it'll say something like "Route: Steve" next to the picture on the save file.

Thank you for your time!

Thanks, that worked! Is there a way to add two of these? Like "Route: Steve" but there would also be "Sub-Route: Bob"

Hm, you can set any value you like to "save_name" variable.
