I tried using this, figuring that eight years later it might have been fixed and we're authorized to autosave for the player, the way you can even in Warcraft 3.
But it's still the way it was before, you're blocked completely.
Has anyone found a workaround for this in eight years? Something that lets you autosave maybe through custom script?
Sorry to have to be the one to tell you, but sadly it is still broken.
Work around? Not that I know.
I usually just add a trigger to pop up a message "Don't forget to save".
