I am just wondering if others have had the same experience I had. :O
I had been working on my game, and saved my work frequently, when all of a sudden I got the message:
Error Saving Adventure - Permission Denied [Debug:37]
I have a password on my taf file, and I am using ADRIFT 4.00 release 50
Not only was my work not saved, but the taf file I was working on, disappeared from the folder.
Luckily the taf file I was working on didn't vanish, so I could rename it and save it once more, this time without problems. But let me tell you this is one scary experience! My game so far is almost 8Mb
Thank God, I had saved my work in more than just one taf file or the Northern part of Europe would have experienced an earthquake that would have made the Tsunami in Indonesia look like ripples upon a quiet lake.
But has anyone experiences this too, and can you tell me what it is?
