My map is gone

So yesterday I wanted to work on my new 6p map, when I tried to open the map an error window showed up...

map gone bug.png

if I would have made some decent back-ups I wouldn't care, BUT as the idiot I am I didn't make any good back-ups...
is there a way to fix this, cause I'm not gonna make this map again from scratch.

Re: My map is gone

I obviously don't know why this is happening. However, if this was happening to me, first thing I would try is loading it with an earlier version of the Remake. If that didn't work I'd try loading it with Krom's editor. If that didn't work...well I'd be stumped. Go try these though. Might help :D

Re: My map is gone

Don't lost hope, if Lewin's around he might have a solution for that. For now, try what Ben've wrote.

Also, maybe try deleting script file (if map has one) and opening it again. Of course, first of all, make a back up of it ;)

Re: My map is gone

after trying to open it in r5503 it only got worse...
my 'map file' Isn't even in the map list, while it is in the map folder. So its not even registered as a map anymore(neither in r5503 and r6720). :'(

Re: My map is gone

Bad news - all map files are just filled with zeroes. Nothing can be saved :-(

Re: My map is gone

Also you might want to pay attention to your HDD (on which map was?) and antivirus, cos if some malfunction/virus fills files with zeroes it could fail big soon.

Re: My map is gone

it's probably fine, this map error bug has happened to me before(on different computers), but those times I had good back-ups so I never cared about recovering the map file.
I already deleted the map file so I'm not worried. :wink:

Re: My map is gone

This does not sound right. KaM Remake is not capable of erasing files. Something in common between those computers might be responsible.

Re: My map is gone

Could be a piece of software he installed on all of them.
And a 0-filled file is something you would expect from a virus, like cryptolocker.
Could also be a pirated OS, some do actually have faulty bits and pieces in them, like remade NTFS or FAT drivers or a badly cracked kernel, causing data loss.
Running a few virus scans never hurts.

Personally I have never had any such issue with KMR nor KP where the full map went to smithereens like that. (Only once in KP but it was a quick fix for Krom. :P)
