Oh, thanks for fix.
Unfortunately, I found an another problem.
The game will make a new save when I load a save that generated from manual save.

I switched from 0.8 to 0.10 and a lot of the fine tuning options (specially regarding health and ammo) are gone. What are their current fixed values?

Also, would mod specific autosaves be out of the question? For example it would be great to auto save every time you get a Big Coin in GS2 and 1 and other maps with included mods that have similar important key items that don't autosave when you obtain them could use them, too.

Oops, I just forgot to add entries to options menu! Thanks for reporting.
About mod specific autosaves - they are possible and very easy to add.

Update (0.10.3):
- added missing options (health and armor thresholds);
- fixed voice sounds (that bug was really stupid);
- added optional autosave on The Golden Souls Big Coins.

Seems like this and Hideous Destructor's Scavenger addon don't play nice together.

"Vm execution aborted: Tried to read from address zero."
"Called from M8f_aas_event_source.worldthingspawned at autoautosave-0.10.4.pk3:zscript.txt, line 421"

Shame because that's a mod that really benefits from something like this.

I had an idea that would fit perfectly within the frame of this mod; an option to do an automatic screenshot whenever an autosave occurs.

I find myself wanting to take a screenshot while playing, but by the time I get my finger on the button, the moment is over. At the same time, I don't want to do full screen recording due to resource drain, limited hard drive space and extra effort. If this mod could spontaneously take a screenshot any time it saves the game, I think it could give me some cool surprising images.

EDIT: Perhaps the mod could have a setting in the mod options so that it would either Do Autosave Only, Do Both Autosave and Screenshot, Do Screenshot Only.
I think that could be the easiest way to implement this, if the way the mod is structured that doing an autosave is a function that any sensor part of the mod calls for when its triggered to do an autosave.

Done.

Update (v0.12): added optional screen shot making. A toggle is available for each event.

At this point, I consider this mod cursed: the bugs go unnoticed no matter how long I test it. So if you encounter some, please report.

Yeah! Thank you! :D

What do you mean by cursed? Do you expect or suspect there is some sort of error that is likely to happen?
Since I have the mod on by default, I can pay attention and perhaps catch something while regularly playing. Is there anything in particular I should be on the look out for?

With the previous version, I've done 3 playthroughs so far and the mod seemed to work perfectly as far as I can tell.

No, I don't expect something in particular to happen, the mod should be stable by now. I mean that I won't be very surprised if I discover that I forgot some option, or misspelled a word, or something like that.

Understood. I guess its more to do with the sheer amount of options and features the mod has, making it tricky to keep track of it all.

If I come across any setting that fails to work during my play sessions, I'll be sure to report it.

This is a great mod, but there's a big problem with it - it doesn't check to see if the player is in a safe spot before saving. So, if you're about to be wasted by shotgunners and you grab the yellow key, it'll save even though you're seconds from death. Is it possible to make it so it only saves when monsters aren't alerted, aren't in their missile state, the player hasn't fired recently, there are no monsters within X units, or some other method of figuring out if the player is at a safe point to save?
