Using NSKeyedUnarchiver to save player data and item data as an alternative to NSUserDefaults. I've read that NSUserDefaults isn't the best for storing huge amounts of data. Actually, the reason I migrated to NSKeyedUnarchiver is because I couldn't save some object or an array using NSUserDefaults. Now I can save the items I've purchased from the store. Learned how to use enum.

theData = [NSData dataWithContentsOfFile:dataFilePath];
decoder = [[NSKeyedUnarchiver alloc] initForReadingWithData:theData];
Player *tempPlayer = [decoder decodeObjectForKey:@"playerData"];

- (void)savePlayerStateBeforeTerminate {
Player *player = [Player getInstance];
Player *tempPlayer = [[Player alloc] init];
tempPlayer = player;
NSMutableData *theData;
NSKeyedArchiver *encoder;
theData = [NSMutableData data];
encoder = [[NSKeyedArchiver alloc] initForWritingWithMutableData:theData];
[encoder encodeObject:tempPlayer forKey:@"playerData"];
[encoder finishEncoding];
[theData writeToFile:dataFilePath atomically:YES];
[encoder release];


- (id)initWithCoder:(NSCoder *)decoder
playerLevel = [decoder decodeIntegerForKey:@"playerLevel"];
playerFloor = [decoder decodeIntegerForKey:@"playerFloor"];
playerRoom = [decoder decodeIntegerForKey:@"playerRoom"];
return self;

- (void)encodeWithCoder:(NSCoder *)coder {
//[super encodeWithCoder:coder];
[coder encodeInt:playerLevel forKey:@"playerLevel"];
[coder encodeInt:playerFloor forKey:@"playerFloor"];
