Why not

LinuxDonald

Answer Suggestion:
As used in most modern games you should have the possibility to activate an item in a list via doubleclick and additionally via a GUI button, because this is a matter of accessbility for people who are not able to doubleclick due to a physical handicap.

Question

What should happen after the game is saved?

Open question: Continue the game or display the ingame menu? What should happen when the user presses cancel on the save dialog?
totycro

Answer Suggestion:
When the game is save the user should still be in the save game menu having the option to decide wether to return to game or to main menu. If the save dialog is canceld the same should happen. Most likely via additional buttons within the menu.

Question

Can the user delete a savegame?

Open question: If yes, how?
totycro

Answer Suggestion:
Yes, this should be possible. I think an additional button within the menu might be the easiest and savest way. The user select the save game, press on the button and a popup window will ask him/her to confirm the action.

Question

Include data in each name?

Open question: Should the map name and or or the time be included in the savegame-name, that is automatically proposed? (like this: MyMap, 13:37)
totycro

Answer Suggestion:
Nope. The user can choose an individual name for each save game excluding "quicksave" and "autosave". This name will be displayed in the save game list and all other details (date and time, map and scenario name, maybe name of user profile, and a thumnailed screenshot) are featured in an info box next to the save game list.
