Every time you play an RGR Plugin game, a backup of your most recent save file for that game is backuped and the name of the backup is based on the day of the week.  This means that if you played a game every day of the week, you'd have 7 days worth of backups, 1 for each day that you played the game.  I didn't realize until recently that this was a feature that I had the skills to implement myself, so I spent the morning implementing this.

Example of how this works: If you were to play a game on Wednesday, your most recent save file will be backed up to file_name.ext-BACKUP_WEDNESDAY
(where file_name is the name of the game file, ext is the extension of the save file)

These saves are accessible from the Save File Manager page, which can be found here:
http://www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/savefiles.php

The link to it can also be found on the index page of the Retro Game Room toward the top left of the page (to the very left of where it shows who is searching for games).

Staff : I thought you guys should know about this in case someone complains about losing a save file, they could have a backup that they could restore.

Excellent. This is a very useful feature, and I would find it very helpful for certain games. Glad to see it implemented.

How perfect! Now I can play my favorite games such as Ocarina of Time without worrying if the save file is being lost or not, haha.

Well this is cool.

It's definitely good for games like Pokemon where people have the issue and it's like, "DARN I NEED TO START OVER"

Good job as always David.

Davideo7 :

I only have one concern with this. I beat Pokémon Rijon Adventures a while ago, but I decided I wanted to play the game again. Rather than deleting my game, I backed it up on one of the Copy slots. Will this feature eventually overwrite that Copy slot when it does the auto-backup?

BNuge : Nope, the auto backups don't overwrite any copys that you made yourself.

Cyro Xero : It's currently not possible to download save files.

tRIUNE : Your'e totally right about that, but with me it's vice versa!
Davideo7 : This will definitely be a very useful feature! People are constantly asking if there is a back-up save file place they can access to delete a new save, and start from a previous one. Nice job!

pokemon67 : Yeah the backup saves will be under the original save. In order to load the back up you'll have move the original save to a different slot, then copy the back up to Slot 1.
