    Hello everyone.


    So I've been making a game just like everybody else here, it was going great and all, when suddenly, I restart my computer, and RPG Maker comes up as a blank slate. I thought that was a bit weird, so I tried to open my game project.


    http://prntscr.com/at8hxm


    Whenever I try to open it, this pops up. I did nothing to corrupt it, and I have no idea what happened. Please help.


    Thank you.

    It is indeed corrupted for some reason - likely because MV didn't close down properly for some reason.


    Create a brand new project and copy that file from the new project into your existing one.  This will let you open the project, but you might have similar errors with the various database files.  If that happens, you'll need to copy those in from a new project as well, which means you'll lose any new entries you created or changes you made.

    Did you move the project and/or is it on an external hard-drive? Both of these can cause that pop-up if you're not careful about how you do it.

    DRG_YT_official, please refrain from necro-posting in a thread. Necro-posting is posting in a thread that has not had posting activity in over 30 days. You can review our forum rules here. Thank you.



    You have also double-posted, i.e. posted immediately under yourself with a gap of less than 72 hours between them. If you want to add something, please just edit your earlier post to include the additional info.

    I suggest you start your own thread with your query, as there may be a way of retrieving your lost progress.
