Autosave! Autosave! Autosave! Autosave! (and more)

Hi team, 

It would be cool if Wwise can autosave or at least generate a temporary file to protect our recent work in case Wwise freezes or crashes. 

Also, it would be really useful if we could see that our project is being saved through some kind of status bar or something like that when our project has been autosaved or when we manually save the project. 

The status bar might also be able to show that our project is being closed when we quit the authoring tool because sometimes it feels like Wwise lacks interaction with users.

I'm sure a lot of users are waiting for this to come in 2018.1 version. 

Let me know your thoughts below!

I think this is at odds which what most users ( under source control ) would actually want.

However if you want to setup something to do this you can use the WAAPI to periodically save your project like this:

import waapi
import json
import urllib2
urllib2.urlopen( "http://localhost:8090/waapi", data = json.dumps( { 'uri' : waapi.WAAPI_URI.ak_wwise_core_project_save, 'options' : {}, 'args' : {} } ) )

I'm missing autosave as well. I know I would love to have some kind of caching/temp/recovery file similar to Visual Studio or Logic Pro X would be very welcome.

In the meantime, I'm more than happy to implement a hack. I'm just starting out in WWise, so I would appreciate if you could elaborate more on this. Where would I add this?

Thanks in advance!
