Auto Save Versions

New releases and general discussions.

Alrighty.

Since Construct is still pretty buggy and can even corrupt your projects right now, it'd be great if we'd have a versions feature.

Which means that Construct would automatically setup a versions folder in the root directory of the game and save versions with .0001 .0002 .0003, etc. extensions every, say, 10 minutes.

I just added a new layout yesterday night and oversaved my cap, cause I thought it'd be okay, but as it turns out, Construct seems to mess up the layout ordering or something. So anytime I now add more than 1 layout, Construct will crash. The first layout will always work, but 2, 3, 4, etc. - all of em will crash. Doesn't matter whether it's a new layout or a cloned one.

In cases like this, having access to an older version would've saved my ass.

Not sure how helpful it would've been, but from File/Preferences you can enable auto save and auto-backup saves and autosaves.

Just press save as every time, and jot the number down yourself. That's what I always do.
Every time I save, I save a new file. My mouse does not know the regular "save" command in construct :mrgreen: . It's just too unstable to have one file being constantly updated. Anytime something goes wrong, i revert to the last version which was saved like 5 minutes ago. My biggest cap has over 100 sub-versions. Who gives about HD space, it's like... infinite these days. :mrgreen:

The autosave/backup system works a bit like what you describe.
