Bug Description

Global variables are boolean variables that hold their value across missions rather than local variables that only hold it in the mission they are set. This can be used to create secondary objectives that don't contribute toward completing a mission, but that give you bonuses in future missions or change the way a future mission plays. However in YR these variable values do not get stored into a save game and so have no effect if the player saves and then returns to the game later.

Well save games are still not fixed in ares yet, so until save game function is fixed in ares, isn't fixing this bug a mout point until then?

I guess someone could play through missions for the effect, but I still think fixing save game should come first before this bug.
