Alpha Polaris is 3D, and thus won't be supported in ScummVM.

As for SXFile, it has been intentionally broken in that regard, and I'll have to look into any games needing it on a case-by-case basis. For the time being, this bug is invalid, as the game won't be covered by ScummVM ever.

SXFile::openForWrite() is now implemented at
I have tested it with my Steam version of Alpha Polaris and persistent data saved in load menu now works.

However, note that Alpha Polaris is 2.5D game and this SXFile::openForWrite() is one of a few parts that actually works =)
