Save and Restore Button
WilliamXing (46)

On this game, I want there to be a save and restore button. When you click save, it will save all progress, including spc and cps. When you click restore, it restores your progress. How can I do this?

You can use LocalStorage for this. LocalStorage saves data in on the user's computer, and keeps it between sessions. To save an object to LocalStorage, serialize it as JSON with JSON.stringify and put it in the localStorage object:

var myObjectToSave = {
  foo: "bar",
  baz: "qux"

localStorage.savedData = JSON.stringify(myObjectToSave);

The same process can be reversed (with JSON.parse) on the loading end:

var mySavedObject = JSON.parse(localStorage.savedData);

console.log(mySavedObject); // { foo: "bar", baz: "qux" }

function save() {
  localStorage.saved = JSON.stringify({
    spc: spc,
    cps: cps

function load() {
  if (localStorage.saved) {
    try {
      let saved = JSON.parse(localStorage.saved);
      spc = saved.spc;
      cps = saved.cps;
    } catch(err) {
      alert("Failed to load data!");
  } else {
    alert("You need to save, first!");

Well, I copyed your code into my project, as you should be able to see. But, when I save, then I run it again, I click restore. But, it doesn't [email protected]
