Here is a simple tutorial on how to add auto backup (ZIP archive) of your saves in Last Epoch (Linux).
How Backup Your Save in Last Epoch Automatically
1. Create a file “stсript.sh”
2. Copy this script
#!/bin/bash #steam ID of the game steam_id=899770 #name of game (name for archive) game_name="last_epoch" #path to folder with SAVE files of the game folder_path='/home/xeofox/.config/unity3d/Eleventh Hour Games/Last Epoch' #path to the folder for storing your archives backup_path='/mnt/500gb/backup/le' d_time=$(date +%F_%T) zip -r "$game_name-$d_time.zip" "$folder_path" mv "$game_name-$d_time.zip" "$backup_path" exec steam steam://"rungameid/$steam_id"
3. In the folder_path line, specify the path to the “…/Eleventh Hour Games/Last Epoch” folder, where the save files (for sample path on my PC )
4. In the backup_path line, specify the path of the folder where the archives will be stored (for sample path on my PC )
5. Save this file.
6. Now… every time we start the game by using this script, we have a copy of our saves
P.S.: The script can be easily changed to another game. Need to change the steam_id (and folder path)
