    Thanks, man. Rough indeed. Couldn't save nothing but the maps - had around ~100 scripts and many common events, so yeah, no chance of redoing.

    I have had the same, but not for an IGMC project yesterday. I have lost 4 weeks of work.

    Oh man, 4 weeks is a lot of progress. It's really hard to find the will to continue when such things happens.

    How did it get corrupted? Maybe it's just one map and not the whole project?

    Whew. Just made a backup save for me, fortunately. These horror stories keep me on my toes.

    ALWAYS backup. Every day before leaving work, on an external drive (like USB Key). 4 weeks was too much, and what I was working on seems to be lost forever. I won't work on it again (80h+ work !)
    Will maybe make a new project continuing on the fondation of my game. That will be the only way to regain motivation.

    so basically i lost around ~140 skills, ~100 scripts, 2 bosses, 8 enemies and some common events that were important. @Nantas: yeah, will have to make a backup every single day from now on ;-;

    I'm going to ride on the sails of your misfortune and let you know that you reminded me to back up my data. Thanks homie! (RIP your game)
