[r123] Auto backups

  • Link to .capx file (required!):

    none

    Steps to reproduce:

    none

    Observed result:

    I have one backup folder setup to save every 15 minutes to different directory. After about an hour without saving my project, C2 crashed while zooming in and out in the editor (using combination of ctrl+shift, ctrl+alt).

    There is no backup file for my current project in backup directory.

    Expected result:

    To be at least one backup file (I have "keep up to 3 backups files setup).

    Browsers affected:

    none

    Operating system & service pack:

    Win7 64 Sp1

    Construct 2 version:

    r123 beta

  • Did you save the project at least once?

    As pointed out in THIS post from Ashley, some people are mistaking the 'auto-backup' feature for an 'auto-save' feature.

    Auto-save is not yet implemented (but we are all crossing our fingers).

  • Yes, I did. I'm working on this project some time now (over three weeks) and that's why I'm concerned. There's one backup file in my project folder, one I saved about an hour before crash. But still, there's no files at all at my backup folder. I double checked path to that folder in C2 properties and everything looks fine.

    C2 crashes are unpleasant, but not existing backup files... it's just nasty :D

  • Closing - autobackup is not autosave, you must press save for a backup to be made.
