Aimed at intermediate users, see how to create save-game states, build data-heavy scenes and levels, read data from the internet, and process data from external applications. Across three in-depth modules you’ll see how to harness the awesome power of both persistent-data and serialization to customize how games work extensively. Learn how to create saved user-data like high scores and enemy statistics, and then how to retrieve that data back in later play sessions.Understand data openness and security issues, like encryption and formatting, to prevent user tampering and cheating. Learn how to read data from the internet and how to customize play settings with INI files and XML files .And further, understand how to work with JSON files and Binary files to store extensive data sets that accommodate user customization for games. By the end of this course you’ll be strongly positioned to create games that both save and load data, expanding your horizons to build massive, customizable games that everybody will want to play…
