Can I force 'Quick Save' to use a new file each time?



  • Console scripts, mods, or voodoo is acceptable as an answer.



  • First, back up your save games and then you can try using AutoHotKey to create quicksave backups. The way I've set up AHK, it should refuse to overwrite files, but I wouldn't trust your only copy of your Skyrim saves to this, as it's untested. Again, I provide no warranty, use at your own risk.

    Try the following, using AutoHotKey:

    F5::
    OldQuickSave := "C:\myquicksave.sav"
    FileGetTime, qstime, %OldQuickSave%
    BackupFileName := "C:\backup saves\myquicksave_" . qstime . ".sav"
    FileCopy, %OldQuickSave%, %BackupFileName%
    SendPlay {F5}
    return
    

    Edit the paths as needed for the location of the quicksave file and where you want the backups to go. If you put the "BackupFileName" location as the save directory, then it will probably show up in your list of saved games, and they'll be named with the date/time you quicksaved previously.

    Once you've edited it to your liking, you'll have to put this in a file with the extension ".ahk" and double click.

    I don't have Skyrim, so I can't test this out personally. Hopefully it at least points you in the right direction.
