Auto-Save in Editor

Recommended Posts

The title really says it all, what about implementing a Auto-Save feature you can turn on/off in the editor that will automatically save your progress in case your game crashes or PC shuts down ETC. Most word processing apps have this and email programs etc. It makes sense really because my friend just lost a mission that he had been working on all day because his game crashed and he had not saved for a long time.

You always got to remember to save every so often, this is for making pretty much anything on a computer in general.

I don't know, what if you made a mistake in the editor and it autosaves before you could close it and reload it?

Then you have your regular save to fall back on - Autosaves are (almost) always separate from your own saves. They serve as a backup in case of crashes or accidental overwriting by yourself.

or it numbers autosaves differently, you could have settings for all of this

It's a golden rule to always Ctrl+S every time you finish something. I've never got a problem with this problem. Just remember to Ctrl+S regularly then you won't need an autosave function in your computer life anymore.

I have to say it'd be a nice feature but I constantly save my missions anyway so I'm not sure if I'd actually use it.

I'm pretty hopeless at remembering to save when making missions. It's usually not an issue unless ARMA is being particularly temperamental and decides to crash on rare occasion. An auto save would be handy.

A couple times now I've lost a few hours worth of work in Arma 2, so I would also support this idea.

or even if it says "are you sure you want to close, there is unsaved progress bla bla bla bla"
