Transfer Saves Between Two Applications

by Mike Richardson

Two different GM applications can read the same saved game files if they have identical variables, text in the text field, creator codes, and names. After compilation, you can rename the applications in the Finder and it will not affect this; they need only be compiled under the same name. The creator codes are entered in App Setup, and must be identical, including upper and lower case letters--this can hinder the double click ability in the Finder, since it may open the wrong app. The text field only needs to be the same on the card where the game was saved.
