Hey, I'm planning to make an official #FreeBSD package of #voadi. Is it a good idea? It would be not if the game is unplayable and/or is going to change much in the future which would break savegames.

@AMDmi3 In the future, that would be awesome! Right now it's not suitable for distribution (I can't guarantee the save file). Is there already a Solarus package on FreeBSD? VOADI is just data files for Solarus, eg you run it with `solarus-run ~/path/to/voadi` (solarus-run is the compiled Solarus engine)

Surely it shouldn't get in a way of your development plans, so I suggest to just add a simple precaution, like adding a version number to a save file, and refusing to load saves from different versions. Users who still cherish these saves could just get a compatible game version and use it.


@AMDmi3 It's a linear story-driven game, but the current version is disconnected/unfinished. A savegame is not valuable currently.
