Save and load int (easy save 2)[SOLVED]
« on: August 07, 2017, 02:09:30 PM »
I tried to figure out how to save and load a simple int using easy save 2 (or player prefs). I dont know what I do wrong.

What I need:

Scene 1:
Two buttons.
If button 1 is pressed, it stores "0" in int variable named skin.
If button 2 is pressed, it stores "1" in int variable named skin.

Scene 2:
Load int variable and make an int switch based on "skin" and decide, which skin to show.

For some reasons, I cant get it to work.

When I use "save int" action, it wants me to use a str variable for the tag? Isnt the tag the name of the variable (=key)?

I didnt found any usefull documentation.

Tag is the reference name of the variable you are saving in ES2 file. If it's dynamic then it could be your object's name, it's up to you how you want to name it.
