Marin submitted a new resource:

Automatic Backup System - Once a day, this script will make a backup of everything you tell it to (PBS, Maps, and/or Scripts)

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 currently have it maps, scripts, and PBS backed up. It backs up whenever it detects the last backup...

  • You can manually choose a folder to make the backups in (can be relative to the game project or a full path (e.g. "Backups" or "C:/Users/....../Desktop/Backups)

This isn't a bad idea, but if you're going to go this far wouldn't it be more effective to just use conventional source control like Git or something?

(I speak as someone who never actually learned how to use source control himself)

I will agree that things like Git are much better solutions, but for someone who'd just like backups to be made every once in a while, just in case something bad happens, I'd say this is easier to work with and setup than Git. I myself just wanted something quick that I could switch back to, should something corrupt.

I didn't try it yet but thanks for making something like this ... I'll consider using this script in the future
