No worries. I'm at a noob level at the moment anyway, in both Defold and lua, so there really weren't a lot of things I was able to create in those 4 hours. ^^ I can rewrite it, absolutely, and get some well needed repetition for learning purposes in the process. However, I won't deny my frustration since I'm spoiled with constant autosaves or other idiot fail-safes in software I usually use and couldn't find any after the crash. Such a feature would be appreciated.
I'll see if I can create a github account and report the crash and some other issues I've found.
Thanks for the reply
