        this post has inspired me to try the challenge. my first thought was "how bad can it really be?" then i thought about it for another moment and almost gave up.

        @Nightblade50 I have no internet for the next week or so (am away from home) so can't upload anything from my laptop. I might eventually include them in a post on Game Map & Screenshots thread.

      Ask yourself "Can I afford to lose all the progress I've made since my last backup?" If the answer is No, you know what to do.

        This might be shocking but.... How do you back-up a project? Copying it to another folder?

        @Elliott404 Copy your game folder to somewhere other than your computer - USB memory stick, external HD, Dropbox etc. No point copying it just to another folder if your computer dies. Add a date to the file name so you always know when you did it.

        All I have to lose is my Database. Which, I guess if I lost it, I could put it back together in about two days, minus animations. Oh, I guess my cutscenes and baseline maps. But, they're somewhat replaceable. Still... HAVE BACKUPS! My backups happen to be pen and paper... and a USB Stick I usually misplace.

      If you're doing medieval fantasy, remember that just as it is rogue, not rouge, so it is Duchy, not Dukedom.

        Of course, many Fantasy Worlds have their own terms for such things, so really any word can be used, as long as it makes sense.

        At one point he asked for pens, went to a bit of blank wall & in 5 minutes drew a self-portrait.
        Why the guitar? Because he plays it, and quite well, he gave us a mini-concert.

        My friend has a history of running into famous people. There was the one time we were at Magfest and he spotted Keiji Inafune (the creator of Mega Man) in the dealers room. Of course, he got his picture. And then one time, he was sitting in a quiet restaurant at some horror convention and Robert Eungland walked in.

      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.

        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.

        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
