How to save information fast!
Posted on 1998-10-19
I need to save about 90,000 elements of information really fast. I know this is probley imposible! But I am open to other ways. Right now I am using a string for each 300 sets.
But what am I trying to save? Ok I am makeing a RPG... And I want the map to be about 300 by 300. Each tile will have a number. I have tried to use integers like this
dim map(300,300) but this is too slow to save. Then I tried to make a string with one row of the map like this
dim map$(300) But even saveing 300 strings takes too long! So I am stuck. If you can please help me I would be very greatfull. If you don't under stand what the heck I was talking about don't worry All I need is a way to save information fast. That's all. Thanks!
