    Hello!
    I went to work on Falling Glory, and it wouldn’t let me save. It gets stuck on this screen:
    It's a screenshot of the screen that it gets stuck on.
    Do you know what’s going on? Thanks!

    I don’t see the image. Can you maybe mail it to me at koen@koonsolo.com?

    I don’t know if this is along the same thing but I have constantly run into the problem of it not being able to save. I can get it sometimes but it’s like a gamble. Progress goes extremely slow cause I have to constantly re-make the scenes because the only way to get it to start saving again is after re-loading the page.
    Heh, I feel like this is already on your radar and I think you and Aura may have been talking about it?
    Anyway, I hope it is solvable.
    Thanks for your hard work.

    When saving the message I get is:
    htmlException: cannot represent an object of!<tag:yaml.org,2002:str> type at yaml.Renderer#detectType (444)

    Another message I’ve gotten where it won’t save my game:

    yams.YamlException: unacceptabe kind of an object to dump (null) at yams.Renderer#writeNode (501)

    I found that it will always save the first time. It use to save a second time too but now it doesn’t. I figured out the pattern to save then reload the page and could make a lot of progress that way and continue saving. Just have to reload the page right after.
    It’s funny but it works.

    Now it looks like it won’t save anytime a new scene is added.

    I put a version online with better logging for this issue.

    Mystify, can you try to let it fail again? Then I can investigate further.

    Thanks.

    Fail again? Do you want me to log on and try to save a scene again?

    Yeah, no prob. Does that show you something in the log?

    I went ahead and did it.

    Thanks for listening and working with your users. It’s really cool that you keep up with these things the way you do!

    Thanks, I can see the log.

    This is a really strange problem, and it’s possible that it’s specific for the Safari browser you are using.

    Can you try it with the Firefox or Chrome browser? Download links are https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/ and https://www.google.com/chrome/

    Huh, yeah it worked.

    Guess it is just safari.

    Okay then. (^_^)

    It’s working perfectly now on chrome actually.

    Ok, good to know you can continue now :).

    I think I found a way on how to solve it. So it’s possible I will ask you in the near future to test again. You will not be the only person who will run into this.

    Yeah, no problem.

    It works perfectly on chrome.

    I have been able to save multiple times now without problems.

    Can you test again in Safari? It should work now, and should save way faster for everyone.
