Saving and Loading using ES3File in PlayMaker

ES3File allows you to cache data in memory, which significantly improves performance for large files, or files which contain a large number of keys. More information can be found in the ES3File scripting guide.

To view this PlayMaker example, simply import it into a project containing the latest version of Easy Save and PlayMaker.

Very nice method, I would like to use it, but ES3File actions are in "Deprecated Easy Save 3 actions" with the current version of your plugin.

So what is the best way to save a lot of variables at once, today ?

Hi there,

Now you can set the save location to Cache (either in Window > Easy Save 3 > Settings, or in the settings for the individual actions).

Then when you're ready to save, call the Store Cached File action.

You can also put a locally-stored file in the cache using the Cache File action.

All the best,
Joel
