This isn't really something anyone can help with but im kind of pissed off and I want to talk about it....
so basically, my hard drive is half dead, and im still trying to get it in for repairs, but in the meanwhile I decide continue working on a game. as you do!
the game itself is actually quite simple, but from a coding perspective its tedious and annoying (but really worth it in the end). so I get to the first problem in the coding, and im working on a solution... then BAM, my computer get the blue screen.
so not really thinking, a couple days later I get up my computer to try again and at this point I already know that all of my work from last time wasn't saved, so I was back to square one!!! anyway, I went through the most tedious parts, I was making some real progress... and then... BAM, it happened again and all my progress was lost!
at this stage my computer was getting really bad and I didn't really want to even attempt to do it again.
about 4 days later, I have to do some research for a science task and I decide to use my laptop (thinking in my head : this isn't gonna last more then 20 minutes before it crashes again). 2 hours later and I have 2 full pages of information that I have printed out and no crashes!!
at this point im pretty confident in my computer and im really motivated to do some game making so I got back to the old game save and try one more time to make it! 3 - 4 hours later, no crashes, and I've got a game that I was proud of, it was just an all round feeling of satisfaction.
throughout the entire process, im saving every second thing I do!! so I knew for a fact that even if it crashed, it would be okay!!
now.... after all this.... all the saving that I did..... I exited out of construct2..... I copied over the game to a USB so it was safe and backed up...... I go back in to look at something.... AAAAAAANNNNDDDDDDDDDD BACK TO SQUARE ONE!!!!! After all that!!! it didn't even save!!!!!!!!!
no backups, no AutoSaves, nothing!
I say this isn't something that you can help with because im 99% sure that its my hard drive's fault!
hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...... im not gonna try this until I have a working computer!
thanks for listening to my stupid rant XD.
