Write to a embedded text file?

P: 5
Hi,
I am trying to make a game, where the player can save their stats. So far I've got it so the text file can be read, so loading the game, but I cannot figure out out how write to the text file, so saving the game. I have tried changing the code of StreamRead to StreamWrite, but it comes up with an error.

It might be helpful if you post exact details of the error that occurs and maybe a snippet of your code so that we can see where exactly it is going wrong.

Thanks for answer, I've tried like 3 other websites and not even a reply!

Ok so here is the code I declare publicly :

Assembly _assembly;
StreamReader _textStreamReader;

Here is the code I read with :
try
{
_assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
_textStreamReader = new StreamReader(_assembly.GetManifestResourceStream(" WindowsApplication2.Resources.Stats.txt"));
}
catch
{
MessageBox.Show("Error accessing resources!");
}

That works fine, but if I try and change the StreamReader to StreamWriter, I get an error saying "Stream not writable."

Okay, thanks for posting the sample code as now I can see what you are trying to do.

You're trying to write to a text file that is embedded inside your assembly and that is why you are getting an error. To avoid this you should create the text file as a separate resource (not embedded within your assembly).
