Hi all,

I have a problem trying to use Ork (V2.30) and Makinom (V1.18.0) with the Connection Plugin (V1.1.0).
In fact, I have activated "Save Makinom" function in the plugin section of Ork (as explained in the tutorial for using the plugin), in order to have the data saved from Makinom in the ORK saves (I use the save system of ORk because my games are made with this one).

After having carried out several tests, I realize that the Global variables that I create with and in makinom are not loaded when I use the Load / Save function from ORK.

I don't really understand why.
For information, I created a global variable in Makinom, which I transfer to ORk and then I save with ork.
When I reload the game, the Variables in Ork is well remembered, but it has been reset in MAKINOM.

I put some screenshot to illustrate the problem :

After Start a new game whit the ork main menu :

Close the Editor Player , then play and Load the Ork saved game :

EDIT 1 :

The save function is managed by Makinom, it triggers an ork event which autosave the game.
So I added an auto save function (makinom) to the shema to test, but it didn't change anything (it still doesn't work)

  • Check if Makinom is set up to save variables (Menus > Save Game Menu).

    Also, since you're saving and loading via ORK, you don't need to auto save in Makinom, that data is included in ORK's save file.

    Yes it is , I had already checked (it also seems to me that this parameter is by default).

    Yes, I suspected it, I did this out of desperation xD.

  • Hm, a potential issue could be having both Makinom and ORK save the player position. Since you're saving via ORK, I'd recommend disabling Player Position in Makinom's save game setttings.

    Thanks for your help really, so I tried the soultion you suggested but it didn't change anything.

    In fact, I think that the problem did not come from that (But your solution could be useful to another person nevertheless).

    Initially I had added my "Makinom Game Starter"
    on the 1st scene where I use Makinom (the scene loaded by ORK therefore) so on the "Ork Main Menu" scene, I only had my ORK Game Starter.

    I have deleted my "Makinom Game Starter" from the loaded scene and also placed them in the "Ork Main Menu" Scene.

    And now it works.

    For those who would encounter this problem, it therefore seems that Ork and Makinom need to be initialized at the same time in the 1st Scene (by the "Game Starter").
  • Ah yeah ... if Makinom isn't initialized when ORK loads the game, it wasn't yet registered to handle the load data.
    You'll have to have both ORK and Makinom initialized before that :)
