Hello guys,

how about the feature in the subject? C2 just crashed and I lost lots of work.

Yes, I had the same problem about an hour ago (Grrrrr!!!).

I know it's good practise to make regular saves, and I do most of the time. But sometimes it can catch you off guard! Certainly some kind of timed save would be a nice addition. Blacksmith2013-06-05 16:52:35

Yeah, mine's been crashing quite regularly. I've been remembering to save until tonight where I'd spent about 3 hours and hadn't realized the time... oops, all gone. I know roughly what I did so I can rebuild it tomorrow.

It's always when going back to C2 after previewing for me. Click on window and "...stopped working".

If you preview often, then set one of them to the lowest time you're comfortable with.

However I don't see why there couldn't be a checkbox if you want to have a backup when previewing.

I agree that this would be a nice feature. Perhaps something to save a particular backup on preview, so that you don't auto-save a mistake you notice when previewing on your main save. Graphics card bugs or not, Construct 2 is pretty crashy on my computer, and it would be very helpful to have such a feature.

Yeah, it crashes on preview and, less often importing an image, like clockwork. C2 freezes during backup for me sometimes, too, though. I just use my own methods of backing up, but I could see a check box being useful for some so they have the choice.
