#5559 closed defect (invalid)

Missing documentation for the load/save keys in scummvm

Reported by: SF/stesaba Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Documentation

Hi all,

the keybindings which are mentioned in the FAQ:

3.5. Can I save/restore the game?
Yes. Saving and restoring is already supported (ALT-1/9 to save, CTRL - 1/9 to restore, or F5 to access the save/load menu).

are not documented in man scummvm (and caused me losting my first MI session yesterday).

Thanks for the great job!

Er, what do you mean?

I just checked the README file. Here's it is:

5.5) Hot Keys:
---- ---------
ScummVM supports various in-game hotkeys. They differ between SCUMM games and other games.
Ctrl 0-9 and Alt 0-9 - Load and save game state
F5 - Displays a save/load box
Alt-F5 - Displays the original save/load box, if the
game has one. You can save and load games using
using this, however it is not intended for this
purpose, and may even crash ScummVM in some

Thus, I'm inclined to close this one as invalid....

This Tracker item was closed automatically by the system. It was
previously set to a Pending status, and the original submitter
did not respond within 14 days (the time period specified by
the administrator of this Tracker).
