Automatic Backup System

Automatic Backup System

Pokémon Essentials Version
v18 ➖
My computer crashed two hours ago. Luckily, nothing got corrupt (which can happen when you have RPG Maker open when shutting off your PC!), but it got me thinking. I don't have any backups, and I'm too lazy/forgetful to make them myself.

So that's why I made this script. Once a day, it will make a backup with everything you tell it to. I will likely add more options to this later.

You can tell it to back up these things:
  • MAPS
  • SCRIPTS
  • PBS
  • GRAPHICS_PICTURES
  • GRAPHICS_AUTOTILES
  • GRAPHICS_TILESETS
  • AUDIO_BGM
  • AUDIO_BGS
  • AUDIO_ME
  • AUDIO_SE
  • ICONS (Please read the top of the script for a disclaimer for this option!)

It backs up whenever it detects the last backup was made on a different (earlier!) day.
All files will be stored inside the folder you give it; if you set BACKUP_TO to "Backups", it'll create a new folder in the game folder and call it "Backups". If you give it a full path (C:\Users\....\......, etc.), it'll make a folder there if it doesn't exist and put all files in there.

It will ONLY make backups when you're in Debug mode, as the file system changes whenever a game is encrypted.
