XNA 4.0 - How can I save a 2D array to file.

Posted 02 March 2018 - 12:16 AM

What Id like to do is use the same file saving system I have for my other game variables for a 2d array and I do not know how to do it. I will post my code for an example:



[Serializable]
    public struct SaveGame
    {
        // Player Variables
        public int PlayerScore;
        public int PlayerFuel;
        public int PlayerMaxFuel;
        public int PlayerPickTier;
        public int PlayerInvTier;
        public int PlayerFuelTier;
        public int PlayerMaxDepth;
        public int PlayerCoin;
        public int PlayerInv;
        public int PlayerMaxInv;
        public int PlayerDepth;
        public int PlayerPosition;
        // Player Inventory Variables
        public int PlayerInventoryCoalOre;
        public int PlayerInventoryCopperOre;
        public int PlayerInventoryTinOre;
        public int PlayerInventoryIronOre;
        public int PlaceHolder;
        // Player Statistics
        public int TotalMoneyAquired;
        public int TotalUpgradesAquired;
        public int TotalMovesMade;
        public int TotalFuelUsed;
        public int TotalBlocksMined;
        public int TotalDirtBlocksMined;
        public int TotalCoalOre;
        public int TotalCopperOre;
        public int TotalTinOre;
        public int TotalIronOre;
        // Game Map Array
    }







Loading Code
void LoadFromDevice(IAsyncResult result)
        {
            device = StorageDevice.EndShowSelector(result);
            IAsyncResult r = device.BeginOpenContainer(containerName, null, null);
            result.AsyncWaitHandle.WaitOne();
            StorageContainer container = device.EndOpenContainer(r);
            result.AsyncWaitHandle.Close();
            if (container.FileExists(filename))
            {
                Stream stream = container.OpenFile(filename, FileMode.Open);
                XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(SaveGame));
                SaveGame SaveData = (SaveGame)serializer.Deserialize(stream);
                stream.Close();
                container.Dispose();
                //Update the game based on the save game file
                // Player Variables
                PlayerScore  = SaveData.PlayerScore;
                PlayerFuel = SaveData.PlayerFuel;
                PlayerMaxFuel = SaveData.PlayerMaxFuel;
                PlayerPickTier = SaveData.PlayerPickTier;
                PlayerInvTier = SaveData.PlayerInvTier;
                PlayerFuelTier = SaveData.PlayerFuelTier;
                PlayerMaxDepth = SaveData.PlayerMaxDepth;

                PlayerInventoryTinOre = SaveData.PlayerInventoryTinOre;
                PlayerInventoryIronOre = SaveData.PlayerInventoryIronOre;
                PlaceHolder = SaveData.PlaceHolder;
                // Player Statistics
                TotalMoneyAquired = SaveData.TotalMoneyAquired;
                TotalUpgradesAquired = SaveData.TotalUpgradesAquired;
                TotalMovesMade = SaveData.TotalMovesMade;
                TotalFuelUsed = SaveData.TotalFuelUsed;
                TotalBlocksMined = SaveData.TotalBlocksMined;
                TotalDirtBlocksMined = SaveData.TotalDirtBlocksMined;
                TotalCoalOre = SaveData.TotalCoalOre;
                TotalCopperOre = SaveData.TotalCopperOre;

                TotalIronOre = SaveData.TotalIronOre;
                // Game Map Array
                gameState = GameState.GameScreen;
            }
            else
            {
                gameState = GameState.MainMenuScreen;
            }
        }
