        @TheoAllen Game Ideas and Prototypes is no longer a moderated section, so you can post direct. There is a suggested template to help people.
        @slimmmeiske2 yeah, good point.

      Sorry for the intrusion, I'm looking for a VX script called "Save File Doctor" https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/save-file-doctor.40497/

      Sadly, the website is gone and the script sadly lost to the world. I saw that you used it a bunch and was wondering if you still had it! It sounds like a marvel script and desperately need something like it for one of my projects.

      Can you afford to lose all the progress you've made since your last backup? If not, you know what to do!

        fallenlorelei... that is okay to do but remember, if the harddrive fails your backups are worthless. Its best to have backups on a different drive or source. I usually back up my projects to google drive <_<

        You should backup, the backup of your backup. I remember the horror story of about a month ago where the dude lost 3 years worth of game, because he did not back up the project.

        Yeah, ideally you'd backup in several places. On external hard drive (this is quicker if your project is big and internet connection isn't as fast), and also on the net somewhere in case you lose the external HD, but it can take a while to upload a ~500 MB project. I backup once every handful of days on external HD, and about once a month on the internet somewhere.

        Doesn't it mean to climb up or down something quickly using your legs and arms? Makes me think of someone sorta hugging a tree. xD I imagine it's a fairly uncommon word outside our isles, @Kes.

        I love using these sorts of things in games, though. Regional dialects and what not can really help breathe life into your characters. While playing Ni No Kuni 2, I was introduced to a whole town of people who used a Midlands dialect. It put a bloody huge grin on my face, what with being from that neck of the woods an' all. Man, I do love me some regional dialects in games\stories. xD

        Each thread has their own videos, that's what that forum is for. You don't see the contest, you see people playing a game. Have a look at a couple of them. Some IGMC reviews will have videos e.g. Indrah, others will be written.

        To start a private message go to your inbox (or you can float your cursor over it on computer) and choose Start a new conversation. Then you can add a subject title and choose participants by typing in user names (you can do multiple participants by separating names with a comma). There are also settings you can adjust for the conversation as well. Its sort of like sending an email to someone.

        Bumping - which comes from Bring Up My Post - is posting something which causes the thread to become active again and moves it up the list of topics. You can do this if there have been no posts by anyone for 72 hours.

        The best way to get a thread closed is to use the Report button on your opening post and ask for it to be closed. That way you won't have to wait until I come back on site to see this, as Mods might not see a post or an Update, but will see a Report.

      Hey Kes, thanks for the heads up on the necro posting thing. I am new here. I was wondering, how does one go about relating a new solution to an old problem (that I was newly experiencing) without posting on an old thread? Should I start a new thread somewhere saying 'new solution to old problem' or something. Thanks a lot.

        You can start a new thread. And if solution based on old thread doesn't work, you can link the old thread to your new thread and ask about it.

      1. Nightblade50
        Nightblade50
        First, two questions about this. One, how many textures? Two, will the person making them be paid?

        If there are just a few textures, and it will be free, put it in Resource Requests. If there are a lot of textures, and it will be free, use Project Recruitment. If the artist will be paid, post in Classifieds, regardless of the number of textures.

        Yeah, multiple backups are a good idea. Because a backup external drive could get corrupted or lost or who knows what else. If you're not limited on internet bandwidth, storing some backups online somewhere like in dropbox or google drive is a good idea. At least once a month or something. And if you can't backup everything, at least backup the Data folder of the project.
