Who would ever turn off a system while the software is still running?


I'm stuck two gens ago. I just turn my stuff off like most people.

One rule of programming is to expect that the user will break the program anyway possible. There should be an autosave message so that people know not to shut off the system.

I pretty much only quit at the title screen.


Same. I'll back out via the pause menu, then turn my game off.

Lol at all the people closing software before turning it off. The amount of free time you must have.

Mario Kart 8 autosaves and doesn't tell you when it does so. Turning off the Wii U while it's autosaving could erase all of your progress.

Please go into the home menu and close out your software, it's much safer.

I learned this the hard way, I had 90 stamps, 3 stars on all cups, all characters, and just about every vehicle part with the exception of the gold glider. Now I don't have any of that anymore. Gotta do it all over again. D:


Yet what you don't tell us is that you could exit the game when it's auto saving and have the same thing happen.

Both ways are dangerous.
