When writing "Check For Active Injections On Close" I closed CE before I copied it over to Notepad++. SO had to write twice. I vowed for my stupidity to never ruin a session in the LUA Engine again.

1st Run ONLY:
It creates a folder in CE directory called "Lua_Bak".

Every Run After:
Launching CE it creates a "timestamp" of when the program was opened. If you open the Lua Engine and write anything in the script box it will auto save to a file by the name of the "timestamp.bak".


Super Simple and Helpful. Cool

And A Snap Shot.

Good work. Can I make a similar request? Very Happy

I have this script:

Code:
function autosavenow(t)
  saveTable(getCheatEngineDir().."autosave.ct")
end

autosavetimer=createTimer(nil)
timer_setInterval(autosavetimer, 1*60*1000)
timer_onTimer(autosavetimer, autosavenow)
timer_setEnabled(autosavetimer, true)


But I'd like to be able to do the following with it:

1. Save as tablename.bak
2. Save to folder where table resides

As it is now, it saves the current table to the CE directory every 60 seconds, and every backup is called autosave.ct, regardless of the table that you're working on. Since I'm dumb with LUA, I'm not sure how to go about setting this up, or if it's even possible.

If you're not interested, I'll understand - I'll create a thread in that case.

Thanks!

Yeah i can do tht. Getting the table name might be tricky but i think mgr already wrote a "grab" for tht.

WE can make it create a folder of the Table name too and dump all edit in there.

I can also make it scan the current table and ONLY save if differences are found.

Eitherway hit me back.


I gotta ask. Are you asking because of CE not checking if scripts have been edited on closed. If so we can tackle tht a different way.

Awesome! Thanks so much for your consideration.

Regarding the creation of a new folder, I don't think that's necessary for my needs. I simply would like to have CE write a backup of my entire table every minute or so (writing over the previous backup for the specific table that I'm working on), because sometimes CE freezes up or crashes before I remember to save my work.

So, as an example, let's say that I keep all of my cheat tables at:

"C:\Users\METHOS\Documents\My Cheat Tables"

Or, maybe somewhere else, it doesn't matter, wherever the current table that I am working on is located, that's where the backup should be created.

And...

If I am working on table awesomegame.ct, then the backup should be awesomegame.bak (or whatever readable extension, it doesn't matter). Then, if I switch out the table and start working on boringgame.ct, then a backup should start being made for that, called boringgame.bak etc..

Whether or not the backup times are every 60 seconds, or only when changes occur, that doesn't matter so much to me - either would work great, I think.

Thanks, again!
