All variables has been deleted after a Bluescreen
« on: June 19, 2018, 12:40:47 PM »
Hi, I should appreciate rapid help, because this half-week I must send my game to the greater videogame festival in Italy.

When I created the project a month ago, some variable deleted causeless but I always ignored just by re-creating them again.This evening after a bluescreen caused by the Unexpected Kernel mode Trap error, Playmaker lost all global variables!

What Can I do?

Hi.
Do you have a backup somewhere?

Hi. Nope.
Unfortunately I had to re-create all variables.
Now it works, next time I will make a backup.

next time? make a backup now. you might get another bsod in 3 minutes.
I tend to backup everytime I hit a milestone(i.e. get a modular piece working correctly, but all my games are made up of modular systems, if I get something perfect, I backup.) if I lose everything, I have a backup from before whatever I was working on, was started.

Hi.
Indeed it is highly recommended to back up regularly, and one of the best things to use is something like github for version control.

You can find many tutorials to set this up and now github has his own desktop Software, which makes it easier (before you would need sourcetree or another 3rd party Software)
