How long is suitable to save a game

Postby mfans » Wed Dec 17, 2014 12:02 pm

Sometimes, when I saved a game, the save file sometimes counldn't be opened. So I wait for one minute to save the game and then quit. Is there any rule for time to save a game?

Odd suggestion, pick no compression, it might be faster. I can't really judge it, because I always use no compression at all. :)

Is this another problem of running server forked from the client? Running server separately you could see the message about saving finishing, and the server wouldn't get killed when client exits.

I consider it a bug that server does not send the message to the client initiating the save (I just tested that - server console shows the message but nothing appears to client's chat window)
