Issues Saving Files On Android [SOLVED]
Hi all,

So I'm aware that on Android you can only edit / save files to SystemPath(SP_DOCUMENTS) or the SD card, however, I just can't seem to get it to work. I use xml files to save game data and It works fine on the PC but doesn't save at all on Android.

I'm probably doing something wrong. Any help would be appreciated.

Code:
XmlData xml
xml.load(EncodeFileName(UID(etc, etc, etc.)));

//Whole bunch of other code to edit the xml file here

xml.save(S + SystemPath(SP_DOCUMENTS) + "/QuantumBall/SaveData.xml"; /* I've also tried doulbe slash // in the text and that didn't help */

This is the very last thing I have to fix on this mini project before all the code is complete.

Did you create the "/QuantumBall" folder first?

On Android/iOS SP_DOCUMENTS already points to your app folder, so no need for extra folder in the path.

Oh and I think SP_APP_DATA is generally better than SP_DOCUMENTS (on iOS and Android they're actually the same, but other platforms return different values, I've updated Mobile docs for that)

Cheers Greg, that was my problem. It works now. Also changed it to SP_APP_DATA, though this game will probably only go on Android and IOS.

Yay! all code done... now for the fun part, making levels smile
