my question is about save-games format.
Look at this screenshot:
On the left I made a "simple" fake savegame (Ini format) and on the right there is a "complex" TR2 save game.
I'm wondering how does the complex one work, and why.
I thought that it was made this way to prevent from cheating-editing values, and the format was just a "simple" save encrypted with a key (like aes does).
I'm sceptic though, I don't think every game has implemented an encryption algorithm to save some data. Maybe I miss something, or maybe it's done this way.
Do you have some informations about this ? Have you ever asked yourselves how does this works ? Thanks, have a good day !
