    Hey, so.. I've made a gamesave editor.. It works quite well... except when it comes to saving/writing the file. It worked at one time, but I recently remodeled it and it... died.


    Could anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?

    Here's the code I've used in the past (no longer working):


    Private Sub SaveChangesToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SaveChangesToolStripMenuItem.Click
    Try
    Dim Writer As New PackageIO.Writer(FilePath, PackageIO.Endian.Big)

    MsgBox("Your changes have been applied!")
    Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(ErrorToString)
    End Try
    End Sub

                Dim Writer As New PackageIO.Writer(FilePath, PackageIO.Endian.Big)
    
    
                //You need to actually write something, there are a lot of 
                //different options if you type Write.
                Writer.WriteInt32(999999999)
    
    
                //Always close the Reader or Writer
                Writer.Close()
     
                MsgBox("Your changes have been applied!")
            Catch ex As Exception
                MsgBox(ex.ShowMessage)
            End Try
        End Sub

    I do have it set up to write stuff, it's just... Here, I'll post a shorter version of it.

    Public Class Offline
    Dim StoryTime As String
    Dim FilePath As String


    Private Sub Readfile()
    Try
    Dim Reader As New PackageIO.Reader(FilePath, PackageIO.Endian.Big)

    Reader.Position = 54624
    StoryTime = Reader.Position
    NumericUpDown1.Text = Reader.ReadInt32

    Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(ErrorToString)
    End Try
    End Sub
    Private Sub WriteFile()
    Try
    Dim Writer As New PackageIO.Writer(FilePath, PackageIO.Endian.Big)

    Writer.Position = StoryTime
    Writer.WriteInt32(NumericUpDown1.Text)

    MsgBox("Your changes have been applied!")
    Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(ErrorToString)
    End Try
    End Sub

    Private Sub LoadGamesaveToolStripMenuItem_Click_1(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles LoadGamesaveToolStripMenuItem.Click
    Dim Open As New OpenFileDialog
    Open.Title = "Open Soulcalibur V Gamesave!"
    Open.ShowDialog()
    FilePath = Open.FileName
    Readfile()
    End Sub

    Private Sub SaveChangesToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles SaveChangesToolStripMenuItem.Click
    Try
    Dim Writer As New PackageIO.Writer(FilePath, PackageIO.Endian.Big)

    MsgBox("Your changes have been applied!")
    Catch ex As Exception
    MsgBox(ErrorToString)
    End Try
    End Sub
    End Class

    There's quite a few more than the "StoryTime", but.. yeah.

    I had this setup before the remodel and it worked fine, but it's not now.

    Oh.. I think the reader not being closed prevented it from writing.. Once i added that in, it worked just fine.


    Now.. If only I can figure out how to save it as a new file in a new folder as opposed to overwriting the original...
