Nightly Builds and Save Files

I was thinking of upgrading to the newest nightly build but would like to know if this is gonna frag my current dood. Whats the safest way to do this if possible. Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but my guy is doing pretty well so if I have to I'll just wait to upgrade.

The *safest* possible thing is to make a copy of the application you're running as well as the savefile, then update the application and see if things work.

If not, you can revert to the old savefile and the old version and play. Otherwise you can resist the temptation to cheat and delete the backup file and continue playing
