MOHAWK: Riven: Adding Riven to ScummVM again doesn't create separate saves

Game: Riven

Description

ScummVM: 1.10.0git-3766-gb0ecbc9 64bit
OS: Win7-64

For several scummvm games if I add the game again to the list of scummvm games it lists the saved games separate from the previous (same) game I added.

For example when I save a game using Starship Titanic it saves it something like titanic-win.XYZ where XYZ is a sequential save number, now if I add starship titanic again to scummvm and save a game it now saves games as titanic-win-1.XYZ, so it increments by one. Riven does not do this.

This especially makes sense if you have a cd and a dvd version of riven in scummvm, since the saved games are incompatible they should be separate.

It may not even be that crazy to make the cd and dvd versions have different naming conventions for the saved game files like: riven-cd.XYZ and riven-dvd.XYZ.

I'm a bit reluctant to change the save file naming once again. Some people already have made saves and I don't want them to have to rename them.

I agree it's a bit annoying with the CD and DVD saves not being compatible. To mitigate the issue, I've made a change so that an explicit error message is displayed when loading an incompatible save (commit c3bbae0).
