Aurora Launcher/Backup Wrapper
« on: November 04, 2012, 05:13:04 PM »
I'm thinking of writing a program to act as a launcher and backup for Aurora. The plan is to configure it with your Aurora install location, frequency and number of backups, then launch the game. As you play, it will make copies of the database and store them in a separate directory.

Any interest?

As I regularly forget to make backups, I would greatly appreciate such a program.

Awaiting the Steve launcher, I have made this simple batch that create a backup copy of aurora database at every launch;

Instructions:

- in the aurora dir create a new Backups subdir;
- in the aurora dir create a text file, copy the code below and save it changing the extension in .bat, for example as aurora.bat;
Code: [Select]
for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=:" %%d in ("%time%") do copy "Stevefire.mdb" Backups\Stevefire_%%d-%%e.mdb
start aurora.exe
- on the desktop make a shortcuts that point at aurora.bat;

at *every* start of Aurora shortcut a copy of stevefire.mdb database will be saved in \Backups as Stevefire_k.mdb with k=1,2,3...n;
to restore a copy simply replace the current stevefire.mdb with one of this copies.

I hope it will be usefull ;-)
