      Best way to save and restore config files

      Silent VPN
      I'm trying to create a configuration file (mine in this case is simply config.txt) that can be saved based on your menu selections and when you relaunch the hack you can click Load config.txt.

      Best way to save and restore config files

      //THIS IS C++, std::boolalpha is to have the bools print as true instead of 1, if I remove std::boolalpha then save>load>save then the text file will print garbage numbers like 204 for bools
      void LoadConfig()
      ifstream in("config.txt");
      in >>std::boolalpha>> espactive >> bunnyactive >> espspecial>> esphumans>> espinfected>> espsnapline >> espmehealth>> esp3D >> esphealth >> espzomhealth>> aimbotactive >> aimbothumans>> aimbotspecial>> aimbotsmooth >> aimbotbounce >> fovdist>>aimbotkey>>triggerkey>>aimFOV>>aimsens;
      void SaveConfig()
      ofstream out("config.txt");
      out <<std::boolalpha<< espactive << bunnyactive << espspecial<< esphumans<< espinfected<< espsnapline << espmehealth<< esp3D << esphealth << espzomhealth<< aimbotactive << aimbothumans<< aimbotspecial<< aimbotsmooth << aimbotbounce << fovdist<<aimbotkey<<triggerkey<<aimFOV<<aimsens;

      everything is booleans until it gets to aimbotkey, triggerkey,aimFOV, aimsens
      aimbotkey,triggerkey are integers
      aimfov,aimsens are float values.

      When I save configuration this is what I usually get saved into my .txt document

      truetruetruefalsefalsefalsefalsetruetruefalsetruef alsetruetruetruefalse12101.25
      aimbotkey = 1
      triggerkey = 2
      aimfov = 10 //uses slider bar
      aimsens = 1.25 //uses slider bar

      Loading the config.txt will set everything back the way it way until after aimbotkey, I think I'm reading the values incorrectly(fstream is new to me) because I'm not sure if using my technique as above is only reading one character or not because my float values can be from 1 char to 4 chars.

      It's not loading as soon as I get to the numbers in the config.txt

      Here's what it will look like, I'll save the hack, then click load afterwards before anything else and you can see the keybindings change which is incorrect

      Thanks so much for reading.

      if there is a better way to do this that you guys can help me with that would be appreciated as well.

      Yeah maybe just save like "01 00 01 00 01 01 00 01 01" then load the file while every byte there stand for on or off (you might have done it like that but it's too much text to read and I'm too lazy for that)

      Use .ini or .xml, .. eg. WriteProfileString/ReadProfileString or some simple xml parser. I got my menu separated into tabs, each tab will be a app name in ini and each menu element is a key. I iterate over all the menu items and based on type format the value accordingly.

      Yeah as c5 said you should try to parse it from some structured format

      Just make the format be separated by a new line '\n'. Simplest way there is. Read in a line, that's the first option's value. read in the second line, that's the second option's value, etc. Super simple. And depending on the line you could parse it differnetly - boolean, or integer.
