Default Re: Request for auto backup of turn files

Yep, and I could do any variety of shell scripts in linux or unix (as an exercise in pain, it could even be done with sed instead of awk), or even a batch file to manage it in Windoze for my gaming box. The problem is that most players aren't going to go to this effort, and with Windoze I think you'd actually need a separate batch file for each game.

And thus, imo, it would be well worthwhile for it to be embedded in the game, so that all players wound up having access to verifying the previous turn, even if they're the types that have to upload their files for other more experienced players to figure things out (as often happens).
Wormwood and wine, and the bitter taste of ashes.
