soo, this is my first project that I'm posting on these forums,  this a program I wrote in C# for games/software that don't have an auto-save feature and by that, I mean that every x minutes it will automatically save your file/project on the program that you are working on, for example, if you are working in Microsoft Word, you can set the program to save every 3 minutes, that way you don't have to remember saving your document and you wont be interrupted by it:

 

how does it work:

 

1- you type in the shortcut for the save key, (i.e. "ctrl+s" which is written as "^s" in the QuickSave textbox)

2- set the time between auto-saves (i.e. 1:50)

3-(NEW) just click on the "Shortcut for start/stop" textbox and press any combination of keys that you like for starting/stopping the auto-save process 

4- when you are in the program that you are working on (i.e. photoshop) just press short cut key that you made and it will start/stop the auto-save process

right now it only works for the programs that you are currently working on (sort of like a macro), but If people like it, I'm planning to make it support multiple running programs (from reading the processes/window names and sending targeted keystrokes) and also create profiles for each program so you don't have to setup the autosave for each program individually.

please leave comments and suggestions :) and if any one wants the source code feel free to ask

Ok, I made it fully configurable with unlimited key combinations :D

Nope, bioshock and ms office they both piss me off cuz they don't have autosave but good guess, I know a lot of runescape players make stuff like this for macro (lol I haven't played RS for like a year now, that game is crappy)
