This is probably a dumb question, but how do you delete the current save data on your game without starting a new game and overwriting it? (I assume it involves manipulating a file, but I don't know which one it is) If I make a demo of my game, I don't really want people to start from the continue point I made while testing out the game...

If you go to the C: drive, then go under users, and hit your username, then go to save games, you should fine a folder with your games name. In that there should be a .rxdata file. Delete that to delete the current save data.

You can also start up the game (the game proper, not via RMXP), and hold Ctrl+X+Down at the title screen (the one with the flashing "Press Enter") to delete the save file.

Any existing save file is not included when you compress your game data. You don't need to worry about your playtesters getting your save file, unless they're using the same computer as you.
