Ways of doing save for a java game
For my project for university I have created a game. I've just finished the game and it works fine its just I'm stuck on how to save the game as were not allowed to use javas serialization.
Pretty much on my gui when a games started theres a save button and the current game can be saved when its clicked. There are alot of variables to be saved I was just asking for direction on the best way to structure this?
My only ideas so far are to write every single variable needed on a line in a text file, then somehow read it back to objects when I implement the load later.
Any guide in the right direction will be greatly appreciated,
