Author Topic: Make "Save game" option separate from "save game and exit to title screen"  (Read 97 times)

The latter of which is how "Save game" currently does. Sometimes you may want to do a manual save to avoid losing progress to a crash or a power outage (and before you say "autosaves" yeah, no, autosave froze my machine for way more than it takes to save manually (an hour) and in the end I had to kill the process in the task manager because even dfhack console was dead - good thing I got a backup) and having to reload the game afterwards just wastes the time.

+1.   Would be nice to save without having to immediately reload.

I find it curious that the autosave took so long for you. I have experienced autosaving taking a while, but no longer than the manual saving does. It could be a DFhack thing.

A good suggestion either way, +1
