Carnivores SAV

From Carnivores Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Carnivores *.SAV files are saved games, containing the hunter's name, points, settings, and trophies. These files are always exactly 1631 bytes long.

File name[edit | edit source]

All saved games are named according to the pattern "trophy0#.sav", where # is a number between 0 and 5, corresponding to each game slot.

Format[edit | edit source]

The actual format is as follows:

char(128) - Hunter's name (maximum name length is actually only 10 characters; the rest of the field is null-padded)
long      - Sign-in screen number (corresponds to the position on the game sign-in screen; this doesn't actually have any effect and only seems to be written when an account is initially created)
long      - Total credits
long      - Rank
  • 00 = Novice
  • 01 = Advanced
  • 02 = Expert
long      - Shots made during the last hunt
long      - Shots succeeded during the last hunt (equal to the number of pointable animals downed)
float(4)  - Path traveled during the last hunt
float(4)  - Time hunted during the last hunt
long      - Total shots made
long      - Total shots succeeded (equal to the number of pointable animals downed)

float(4)  - Scale
float(4)  - Range of kill
