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

I might try the mechanical bull at the fair on Friday... for one of the challenges, if you stay on for two minutes, you win $200. I might give that a try and see if I win--I'm pretty good at holding on to things.
Remaking a more streamlined version of my Remote Move map skill in MZ, just one switch and one variable to handle everything. If you seen the Move skill in Golden Sun before, moving far away items with your mind is pretty cool

I don't want to brag or anything but I was entertaining a woman the other night. I told her jokes while she bandaged my foot.
