As I stated I can't find a working answer anywhere else. I have a game where you are to draw out your own weapon and I'm storing that information in an array. How?

You would first need to serialize your array into a string. One way to do this, is to create a tokenizable string representation of your array data.

For example:

string data = "";

for (int n = 0; n < Array.GetLength(0); n++) {
    data += Array[n].ToString();
    if(n != Array.GetLength(0) - 1)
        data += ",";
}

PlayerPrefs.SetString("ArrayData", data);
PlayerPrefs.Save();

Then loading this back into the array would look something like this:

string data = PlayerPrefs.GetString("ArrayData");
string[] tokens = data.Split(',');

Array = new Array[tokens.GetLength(0)];
for (int n = 0; n < tokens.GetLength(0); n++) {
    Array[n] = tokens[n];    //Cast to var type here
}

  • \$\begingroup\$ On the line that says. string[] tokens = data.Split(','); the console displays " ';' expected. Insert a semicolon at the end." On colomn 15 and 17 \$\endgroup\$ – The Mattbat999 Jan 19 '17 at 23:21
