Summary0005220: Import of saved tactic is not working
DescriptionFunctionality of saving and loading tactics is not working.
Steps to reproduce

start the game
click on edit tactics
choose user A for example
you will see the screen with the players and field , move cursor to the field and above one of the player and click and move couple of players up or down or whatever
go to save - you will get the notice that tactics is changed
save tactics under some name
All good so far.
then go again to edit tactics
choose user a tactic for example
click on import
go to load
choose tactics file that you saved

Expected result : positions of the players on the field is the same as you saved it
Actual result : all of the players are placed on right down positions on the field. in edit tactic name on that screen there is some garbage character in the name , to me looks like right offset from the file is not read or something but that is just my wild guess.

"save tactics under some name" .... after SAVE/EXIT I don't know what to do to save.

Also can you state the size of SWOS2 file (so I know for sure about the version you're using)

you need to change player position and then click on save/exit and it will say that tactics has been changed. then you just proceed and it will give you option to save. I attached some png files there
is your problem that you dont see that tactics has been changed ?

swos2 file size is 167901. I attached png from workbench. It is 96/97 swos version.

ok it's my 96-97 v2

yes, after moving players, SAVE/EXIT brings me back to main menu

So I don't have corruption, but I don't have saves either

Hi

This bug has been going on a long time on WHDload.

Took me a while to remember how, but you have to use the "LOAD" part of the import of tactics. Video link here ^^

Please ignore me arguing with the mouse port around 0:30.

Towards the end you see I load the newly saved "Dom 1.TAC" both directly, and then using iMPORT/LOAD.

After the second one all players appear in the bottom right.

I can confirm the tactic loading bug and recorded the easiest way to reproduce it. https://youtu.be/sPX4p-qZmno

I hope this can be solved! Thanks a lot for your efforts.

PMed on EAB, too!

I haven’t looked into this properly but I notice other load routines are patched in the code via:

    PL_PS $51a5e,Load_Season
    PL_PS $51c1e,Load_Season ;Load Highlights!


Perhaps the tactics load routine isnt patched at all as it should be? There is no equivalent for the tactics load in the source code

This could be loading 0000 data, which might explain why the players all get squashed into the corner.

I am not very adept with disk routines but if JOTD is busy i will try and find time to check this possibility
