    Tharis got a reaction from Khobrah for a blog entry, The time has finally come!   
    Well if anyone was actually interested in playing my Demo or was intrigued by the story of this game... and mind you I know there are probably not many (yet). I am making a big leap here, I went through and play tested my ass off and I am ready (I think) to drop this demo on you all!

    Please feel free to let me know what you think of the game, the story, the dialogue anything I could change.
     
     
    I am sure, some gramatical errors as well as misspellings if you notice anything of great significance please be my guest to let me know about it.

    Tharis reacted to Maindric for a blog entry, The Lost Shipment - Save your work   
    Progress:
    I have made excellent progress the passed few days!
     
    I started reworking all the items, weapons, enemies, armor, tile sets, and literally EVERYTHING else in the database.
     
    I changed up all the tile sets, got all the actors in, fine tuned all my classes. Then I go to play test...
     
     
    The Loss of Progress:
     
    Then it happened. My computer froze as I exited the play test, right when I pressed the 'x'.
     
    No big deal, so I reset my computer.
     
    I come back on, open project....
     
    "Unexpected file format"
     
    Wait... This can't be right.
     
    Try again...
     
    "Unexpected file format"
     


     
    Was the only reaction I had.
     
    But then, rejoice! I had just backed up and shared just last night!
     
    So I go open that folder... Missing the project file..
     
    I find an older version with the project file....
     
    It won't open, can't read a certain file...
     
    It is all good, so I try to mix that with the data files of my other project. I start making head way with less and less errors... Till I found one file that will not fix itself...
     
     
     
     
    TL;DR
     
    I lost my work.
     
     
    Conclusion:
     
    I had to restart most of it. Thankfully, my maps were able to transfer to a new project, which consisted of the bulk of my work. But, nothing else did. The lesson here, save your work and back up efficiently.
     
    From now on, here is my system. After every major task or hour, whichever comes first, save project, go to the folder, copy the whole folder, paste in a new folder with a -00N + 1 naming scheme. So first is "TLS-000" then "TLS-001" and so on. Hopefully, I will not lose 20+ hours worth of work on the database again due to this...
     
     
    Last Thoughts:
     
    This sucks...
