How to save game data in 2 files at once automatically?

Post by Jewel Fazbear » Mon Oct 10, 2016 9:25 am

I like to keep a backup of all my Wolf Quest data. But it's really inconvenient having to continuously copy and paste them into my backup folder. How to I save game data for all Wolf Quest versions in the original data folder and a backup folder at the same time automatically on Windows 7?

I've never heard for problem like this,look I often reinstall WolfQuest and I don't have any problems to save my data. Wait did you purchse WolfQuest or make account? Because if you don't make an account you can't save your data,it syncs by the account. :)

Hello Flippy, could you please specify which version of WolfQuest you are referring to? As FuzzyDesertPaw said, WolfQuest 2.7 creates a backup on the online server, in which case you wouldn't have to worry about keeping a separate backup up to date.

If you mean WolfQuest 2.5 or would prefer to keep some form of local backup data after all and want it to update automatically, I'm afraid you'll probably have to turn to a third party software. There are no programs out there that I am personally familiar with, so I'm afraid I can't tell you what would be a right choice to make here. Bvckup might be one worth looking into; there's a review here.

If you like, keep us up to date. :) (no joke intended!)

Actually I got a copy of the game from a friend. It saves though. I just dunno how to set it to automatically save game data in 2 files at once XD


Although, I do get problems while trying to log in... :T

Meh. I don't really trust software like that because of viruses and malware. I'd rather copy and paste X3

Thanks for the advice though :3

This is, to my awareness, done automatically at intervals if the server can be reached. Keep an eye out for those syncing messages at the top of the screen or alternatively, relaunch the game and select the option to 'Push' your data to the server. This prompt will only appear if the saved data on your device is newer than the data stored on the server.
