"Save locked by Map Author" possible fix please?

Postby KingXanderYT » Sat Nov 17, 2018 11:21 am

Hello everyone. When I released my Demonstration of my episode of Adventurism in the 1.4.4 Super Mario Brothers Extreme Engine, I failed to realize that there was an issue that was brought to my attention via the user "Grand Goomba". They stated that when they tried to activate their save data, the message of the save data Occurred. Now I have seen it for myself and I am very perplexed. Now of course it still allows me to play the episode until I go to exit and save to where I get "Subscript out of Range".

Here is the applicable Screenshot.

Please can you help me as soon as possible? I have looked up this solution on Youtube however there is no such existing video or guide for a fix...

Did you remove the option to save in your episode through the world map settings?

I have checked and I have not. I have blocked four characters from being played and I have disabled two player. I have not disabled "Auto Saving" or any saving feature.

Did you use a cheat while playing?

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why.

Whilst I was playing I did not. If I did then I would've understood why that may have been the case.

Can you provide the world map? I could check it out to see if something is wrong with it.

This is the link for the demonstration. It includes the world map and levels so if there is something else in there that I am unaware is causing the error you may be able to notice.

Hello. I sent you the world link yesterday and I just wanted to check if you potentially have any update or news about the bug?

Well i have been trying to find the problem, its weird because i don't get the same problem as you but i am not allowed to save in game. I removed the settings file which contained the world map setting but it didn't change anything, i think something is broken with your world map and you will have to start over, i am sorry, i hope someone who knows how to fix the problem either helps you or you accept the fact the saving feature can't be implemented because of an unknown reason i still can't understand.

Download
See if this fixes your issue. I don't know if it will because I can't test as 1.4 does not work for me, and you will probably have to restore some of the setting you may need, as all I did was copy the map tiles onto a new .wld file.

Hello and thank you for participating in helping to resolve this ongoing issue. Unfortunately I cannot load this wold file since it comes as a text document instead of a proper world file. But thank you anyway.

Wrong download (though to be fair you could have copied the text in the map file to a document and change the format to a .wld file, which would work as it is a proper world file, but it ended showing the contents instead of a file icon).
