#7248 closed feature request

Pop-up window for shortcut-key saves

Reported by: SF/jamieson630 Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: GUI

Cc: Game:


When saving a game using the shortcut keys (Alt+# now?), as opposed to the GUI, a pop-up window should come up for, say, 2 seconds to confirm that the game has been saved. That way, even if the console window is not visible (e.g. during a fullscreen game), the user knows that the save has actually completed.

When we switched from Shift+# to Alt+# for shortcut- key saving, I didn't know about the change and kept using Shift+#. Since I couldn't see my console, I couldn't tell that my games actually weren't saving.

Actually, we should have the pop-up window come up even if the save was made from the GUI. The reason for this is because even when you are typing in the name of your savegame, you can still press the "Play" button and you will be returned to the game -- but your game will not have been saved.

My GF had this problem multiple times while playing; she thought she was supposed to select a slot, type in the name, and then click "Play" to finish the process. With a pop-up window confirming the save, it would be easier to verify immediately that an actual save occured.

(Of course, it might also be expedient to disabled the "Load", "Play", "Options" and "Quit" buttons while the user is typing in the name of their savegame.)
