Game backups? Like... backups of projects or copies of games you play? Because if the former, then you're doing revision control a tad wrong. X3

Oh, I mean backups of my the game I'm making in MZ. I make a backup at the start of every day I work on it. Keep daily backups up to two weeks. Then monthly backups... Which I have all the way back till 3-1-2019. I just forgot to delete dailies and had like two months of them. :kaoswt:

Honestly I almost never play games anymore, I'm way too busy with my business and stuff related to my own game to find the time. Plus honestly, after seeing how cool it is and all that I can do when making my own game... Regular games are just too limited for my tastes these days. I just want to work on game stuff all day every day. :LZSexcite:

Somehow i think you encounter "Data Corrupt" in the past... :D... i once encounter that too and now i also make lots of backups because of that...

Actually the backups are more of a habit from corrupted saves while playing games in the past. I have encountered a couple of corrupt MV saves though, occasionally I even bothered to fix the corruption if I thought that would be faster than backtracking a save.

I have a tutorial on how to use git... It's relatively easy and that way you only save your changed files, instead of all of them. 'tis rather the point of revision control. :3

Honestly I keep a lot of backups in lots of locations partially out of paranoia but also because I like to look back at old versions to see my progress. It's kind of an inspiration thing really, one can't know the full road they've traveled if they don't remember traveling it and all that.
