I opened up MZ today and found my entire project was gone and can't be opened. I'm trying to get it working again but have had little success. I didn't have a ton of progress but I would prefer to not have to start over from the beginning.

Are there ways to restore my game and is there a way to make sure this doesn't happen again so I don't live in constant fear that the game will cease to be after I've made more progress?

Please describe what you mean by your entire project being "gone". Do you get an error message when you try to open it?

When I attempt to open it, it says it can’t read the rpgmmz file. Idk if I’m opening it wrong, I’m clicking on the game directly when opening it

That happens when files get corrupted. This is often due to improper shutdown (power failure is a common reason for this) You may be able to restore your project depending on how many files were corrupted. For this one, do the following:
-Make a new project
-Copy the rpgmmz file from the new project
-Paste it into your broken project

If that's the only file that was corrupted, it will fix it, if not a new error will pop up with another file name. Keep replacing the files with new ones until it works, you may be able to save at least some of your progress even if multiple files were corrupted.

Got it, thank you very much. I’ll be sure to actually backup my files this time around

now seems like the worst time for me to need a better computer with how much stuff is costing. that and I don't thing there's much else I can do to make MV run any better with what I have.
Sigh... to have some variety in this weather. More than just sun and rain and wind and thunder.
In the meantime, I've discovered that I'm slowly becoming fatigued from the many sleepless nights my neighbors cause. Or at least their dogs. Always barking at something.
I might need a day to just sleep and recharge.
After the initial success with one event, I set up four different events on the same map to detect who is in which slot in my current party, and fortunately it managed to work as intended, with the events changing image to match the party members even as I swapped their positions around in formation. This will be a great tool for immersive scene design.
