    [Request] Auto saving system

    Request
    - Auto saving system.
    This system will save MFA by automatic every N minutes (It makes other name of MFA.).

    As a result, work will be able to be prevented being lost even if MMF2 crashes suddenly.

    Can this function be added?

    Isn't this the way the auto backup works?

    001, 002...

    It is on by default but you may have switched it off. Or, it may be saving in a not so visible dir.

    You can enable Autobackup and set the number of copies. But the saving is not automatic, no time interval to set. You have to save manually.

    The automatic backup function that has already existed operates when the save button is pushed for myself.

    I suggest the function to save MFA by the automatic operation every a few minutes even if without push the save button.

    This feature was in MMF 1.5 but it was causing problems so it was removed. Maybe it'll be back in MMF3 but that's not sure.

    Re: [Request] Auto saving system

    There are some video editing programs that auto-save in the background to a file named similarly to the original one. This is much better than what MMF 1.5 used to do, which is to interrupt you and save the .cca just as you were editing it. Sometimes you delete a bunch of events to see what's causing a problem; MMF1.5 disheartened me a couple of times by auto-saving in the middle of the test.

    Save often!

    I know sometimes it is easy to forget to save... but you should try to remember to save after any moderate/big change to your mfa. It's good to use a nice format also like "appname_001.mfa" so that everything stays sorted nicely in your folder (unless you plan to have over 1000 revisions, then you probably want to do 0001)

    I pretty much save whenever I get to a point where I'm thinking "man it would suck if MMF crashed right now"

    Though yeah, an auto save would be nice... but since that may or may not happen, it is good to practice saving often anyway.

    Re: [Request] Auto saving system

    I like blender's save system. You open up the dialog, press + to increment the filename, and then enter to save, so it's three buttons to automatically save a new copy of your game. MMF would be awesome to adopt this, or even allow codes like game_%t.mfa, where %t inserts a timestamp. This way your code always saves to a new file.
