It's to my understanding that when a rpg maker mv game is played in the browser online, it's save files are kept in a temporary folder of sorts. When the user clears their cache, the save files will be lost.

I have no experience with this so I assume there's a good reason for it? I know it's similar with flash games.

I'd like a plugin that could either change the folder to a more secure place that won't be erased when the cache is clear.

OR

perhaps when you save, a 'save as' prompt appears so you can decide where to save your save, just like when you download anything else.
and additionally a Load option to locate and load the saved file.

Or perhaps this is just something that can't be changed?

Thanks to anyone who looks into this.

Yes, there is a good reason for it. Simplicity, convenience and consistency across OS, browsers and deployments. For example a game deployed on PC makes no sense to prompt the user where he wants to save the game.
It is probably possible to prompt the user to save/load somewhere else, however I'm not sure if anybody would make such a plugin for free, since it's a fairly advanced one.

@Poryg Ah okay, that makes sense. Thanks for your insight on this. I may have to rethink a few things then it seems.

Todays Lesson: Tiles are a pain to make xD

It's on my google drive.
It would be awesome if i could get a couple ideas and the like!
So yesterday Dad took me to Volcano Bay, and it was almost ruined by a thunderstorm... then it passed by and the lightning warning got lifted, leading to an awesome time sliding and swimming. Hopefully we get to go to the arcade tonight. The one we're planning on has a restaurant built in with AWESOME food. Not to mention how big the arcade itself is!

Maybe I'll actually try making a retro pack. Already have the shark fin made so why not xD
Hey everyone, for everybody following along with my RPG Maker MZ streams: There will unfortunately not be a stream tonight. There is a big exciting event that will go live next week that has been taking all my time, so look forward to that!
