So after trying for a million years to try to save variables in an Intellivision game, I finally did it. One of the major problems was I didn't put "-j" in the batch file I use to open it. Nobody told me to do that. I looked in the help file and noticed that. I thought I'd try it and voila, jzINTV no longer had a JLP error. But the variables still wouldn't save. So the thing I tried to do is write the variables and then read them. I don't know how or why, but that managed to save the variables.
I won't be posting any more ROMs of My History Teacher Ate Lemons, but that doesn't mean I won't be working on it any more. In fact, I wish to work on it more in 2018. I started this project on November 11, according to my files. So I hope to finally finish the Secret Government Waffle Project in 2018. And I want to be busy working on "Lemons" now that I have gotten it to save data. My plan is to automatically save it after every level. I have made it save level number, health, and # of lemons collected. Pressing 2 on the title screen erases the data and starts a new game.
So I backed up my files on a USB card in case my dumb computer I have dies, like I periodically do, but this time it was an important milestone: THE VARIABLES GET SAVED. I plan to stay up tonight because I hate people waking me up because it takes me a half-hour at least to get to sleep. And of course, dumb morons have to celebrate with noisy fireworks. Come on people, all you do is put up a new calendar. I don't see why you have to make noise in the middle of the night for it.
