how about the feature in the subject? C2 just crashed and I lost lots of work.
Yes, I had the same problem about an hour ago (Grrrrr!!!).
I know it's good practise to make regular saves, and I do most of the time. But sometimes it can catch you off guard! Certainly some kind of timed save would be a nice addition.
Yeah, mine's been crashing quite regularly. I've been remembering to save until tonight where I'd spent about 3 hours and hadn't realized the time... oops, all gone. I know roughly what I did so I can rebuild it tomorrow.
It's always when going back to C2 after previewing for me. Click on window and "...stopped working".
Does this feature not do what you want:

Almost, but it doesn't save a backups on preview.
If you preview often, then set one of them to the lowest time you're comfortable with.
However I don't see why there couldn't be a checkbox if you want to have a backup when previewing.

I agree that this would be a nice feature. Perhaps something to save a particular backup on preview, so that you don't auto-save a mistake you notice when previewing on your main save. Graphics card bugs or not, Construct 2 is pretty crashy on my computer, and it would be very helpful to have such a feature.
Yeah, it crashes on preview and, less often importing an image, like clockwork. C2 freezes during backup for me sometimes, too, though. I just use my own methods of backing up, but I could see a check box being useful for some so they have the choice.
