Default Re: Request for auto backup of turn files

There are backups. In a standard linux type of way.
The entire game is saved to a file every time you process a turn. Just setup how you want it saved.

There is also a switch called --preexec which you can use to save your your turn file to a backup just before each time it hosts. Some of the utilities written by players that was mentioned above make that simpler

If it was put into the game then it would have to include alot of file cleanup functions in the menu also. And it would duplicate a nice general feature the game already has.
This game is NOT suitable for students, interns, apprentices, or anyone else who is expected to pass tests on a regular basis. Do not think about strategies while operating heavy machinery. Before beginning this game make arrangements for someone to check on you daily. If you find that your game has continued for more than 36 hours straight then you should consult a physician immediately (Do NOT show him the game!)
