i have no clue why this is happening, but help would be appreciated.
i saved my project and shut down my pc, a few hours later i open it again and it says "could not read CommonEvents.json", so i replaced it with the same file from one of my deployed versions of my game and thought it was fixed, but i was wrong. whenever i try to playtest the game, it's just a white screen. nothing else. is there any way to fix this or am i screwed?

Where is your project saved? Dropbox, OneDrive, Steam Cloud? Did you save and close the game, then shut down straight away? If so, you may have corrupted your files. Do not ever have your working project in any location that does an auto online backup.

When you get the white screen, hit F8 to open developer tools, then go to the Console tab. That will show if there are any error messages.

i saved everything to my documents folder (usually takes about 10 seconds) and after 5 minutes of finishing up on other programs i shut my pc down. i've managed to recover about 90% of my work but 2 maps have just vanished :(

Are they in your data folder? If so, make backups of them, then add new maps via the editor. Then close the editor down, replace the new maps added with your backups, and see if you get them back.

Well, since I'm in lockdown, I guess it's finally time to get serious into rpgmaking... almost 20 years later.
