 - Omitted if permadeath
 * C: Checkpointed (dev defined checkpoints)
 * M: manual save (user defined checkpoints)
 * I: Immediate (retain current game state)

Continue supply:
 - lives = continues
 * U: Unlimited continues
 * L: Limited continues
 * P: Permadeath = no continues

Resource change:
 - If omitted, no resource gain or loss (games without power-ups)

   are expected to be reset on continue, or reverted 
 * R: Reset (reset resources to starting state)
 * D: Decrease (resources decreased, e.g. level down, dropped souls)
 * S: Save-relative (revert to manual save/checkpoint state)
