lost character

Postby Kefrem » Sun Aug 05, 2018 9:13 pm

just recently I lost a character I was working on, he was loading up fine but now...it opens the sources related to the character...then it just....stops. Any idea whats goin on or how to get the character back? or is he gone forever? :(

You could turn off autoloading sources with character, then load sources with the char first then try opening the character.

I have a friend that saves a copy every other level, I've often thought it would be useful for PCGen to automatically save a backup.

yea that's what I was hoping, was that the program saved a backup somewhere else and autoupdated it ever 3 minutes or something.

Doesn't pcgen make a backup when the character is saved? At least mine does.

There's an option in the preferences to turn backups on. But it isn't turned on as a default because PCGen started in the land before time known as "Limited HD Space". :)
