Total disaster
« on: 10:32, 09 July 21 »
Esentially, I've lost the project, my gamebook. In short I did something fancy on Linux to improve my system but messed it up. No big deal for the code was backed-up and, it wasn't that long to begin with
But I had not backed up the text   :picard: , which in a game book is like 90% of the work

I suggest you to turn this disaster to an opportunity: I'm sure you are able to re-write (and probably in a better way !) what you already wrote. Don't give up!

Also, if it's not done yet, I suggest you to use Git (GitLab, GitHub, whatever.. for hosting) to store the book content + source code, and take the habit to push your work server-side regularly.

Finally, always make sure you know exactly what you are doing when using the sudo command on Linux ;-)

Sad to hear that.

But I can say to you that as a child I had made the <Penalty kicks> game in a diskette that was lost. After about 20 years that i discovered the emulators, I managed to make it again, a bit better, and that was my 1st game.
I know you need some time to get over it, as you had spent much time and energy. But I am sure you can make it again, and even better. Take all time needed and try to work on the project only when you do it in a creative way, so that you enjoy the process!
