How to backup game

No, not the "copy game" thing.
I need to backup all the files into a hard drive, cause my computer is lately frequently crashing. I'm gonna reformat my memory disk and start over, so I'll have to manually insert the application data back into my new comp.

So...how exactly?

If you download the 1.1 preview, you can use the backup extension. It puts all your game's files into a .zip file.

Also, you can upload you entire game to StencylForge. Just keep it private (it is by default) and then download it again once you get your computer fixed.

So...I've did that, I uploaded it as "all rights reserved" and did not make public.


I can find it in "My resources", so...I'm supposed to be able to download it from another computer as long as I'm logged in?
Just wanted to make sure the I didn't block it from myself.

Yes, you'll be able to download it from any computer, as long as you're logged in to your Stencyl account.
