Cloud Storage MEGA is 50GB, free.
External drive is another option.

What I periodically save is just the data files. That is the core of your game. Because when the data files corrupted, all is over. But if the resource files are lost, I can still use the placeholder. And the data files only took a few kb/mb.

I personally use Dropbox (2 GB ) and that is enough for me to keep one project (I only have one project after all)

Make sure you DO only use it as storage - don't develop your game in the same location that is syncing to the online storage - that is prone to file corruption issues.

I use github. Getting it set up and overcoming the learning curve might seem daunting to some, but once you're past it, backing up your project is as simple as opening github desktop and clicking like 2 things.

One advantage of github over manually backing things up is that it has version control, so if you want to revert to an earlier version, you can with relative ease.

Pretty much stopped posting in the progress thread cuz it feels like talking to the void, lol, so I've just been posting on IG instead. But someone finally liked my post there, lol. Dunno if I'll continue tho. Probably not xD

My game's progressing quite well. Just kinda stuck on mapping right now. Decided to go the side, slightly top down view route. I'm drawing everything from scratch for a personal touch uwu
Stomach isn't feeling too good last time. Perhaps something I ate
Phew! logged back. Seems I was too occupied with 3D learning (yeah for RPGM purposes) creating IRL space, trying to grow catnip, dealing with health and DC is good. (so MrC) ^^

I was wondering if you've heard anything about the patch that allows you to show text anywhere on the screen utilizing pictures being upgraded to work with the official 2k3 release? Your work with 2k3 is awesome dude, keep it alive. I'm 33 and am still playing with 2k3 largely thanks to your work with the game engine. I appreciate the official patch updates you post. Please continue posting
Currently trying to add items in the same style as Kyrise's excellent icons. I like having a large variety of items :3 KyriseandMe.PNG
