NANY 2013 Pledge - Skyrim Character Manager
« on: November 07, 2012, 02:00:25 PM »
NANY 2013 Entry Information

Application NameSkyrim Character Manager
Short DescriptionManage the save files for multiple characters in Skyrim
Supported OSesWindows XP/Vista/7
Web Pagehttp://thinkshui.net...m-character-manager/
Setup FileSee the release thread
DescriptionSkryim is another great game by Bethesda – a worthy addition to The Elder Scrolls line. There are some problems with AI, and scaling at higher levels, but all of that is minor in relation to the sense of atmosphere and immersion the story line brings. But the one area that I think they fell short on was the ability to play multiple characters. And this is a game that cries out for multiple playthroughs.

Enter the Skyrim Character Manager. It’s made for one thing- to help manage the save files for multiple characters. It also holds additional information as wanted for the different characters as I do like a bit more role-playing in my role-playing games.
Features
  • Backed by a database that holds fluff information about each character
  • Allows the moving of save files from active to inactive directories
  • Allows files to be backed up
  • Links to run Skyrim, and visit popular sites
  • Provides interface to delete save files

There was a question in regards to "importing" characters into SCM.  Yes, you can use existing characters; the save game files can be there or not when you first create the character in SCM.  The first time you create a character in the application, all it does is save the relevant information to the database and create an associated directory in your save game files location and in your backup files location.  Then initialize copies the character's files to the save game location without actually deactivating the character.

So, if my skyrim save files are in C:\Users\wraith808\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves, and I decide to make my backup directory C:\Users\wraith808\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Backups (note that the backup directory needs to be manually created), then when I create the character Demo as I do in the video, the application will create the directories C:\Users\wraith808\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves\Demo and C:\Users\wraith808\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Backups\Demo, whether Demo has any skyrim saves or not.  Then, when I press initialize, any files with the name Demo in the save file name will be copied to C:\Users\wraith808\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\Saves\Demo.
