Engines: Incorrect MetaEngine::getSavegameFile implementations

Reported by: criezy Owned by: orgads
Priority: normal Component: Common
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


The default MetaEngine::getSavegameFile one of two schemes:

  • target.#### if kSavesUseExtendedFormat is supported
  • target.s## otherwise

Yet many engines do not support kSavesUseExtendedFormat and do not reimplement getSavegameFile, but are still using the first scheme.

For example with the lure engine, getSavegameFile(1, "lure") returns lure.s01, but the name actually used by the engine is lure.001.

As a result functions using getSavegameFile(), such as copySaveFileToFreeSlot() fail.

Having a correct implementation for all engines would also allow to simplify some code, such as removeSaveState() which would no longer need to be reimplemented in many engines.
