I really don't want to lose the game i was doing i've spent so many hours on it

I think everyone had a situation like this... this is why you always need to backup your project from time to time. You can try to paste exe and default files from newdata folder, like in manual update. I'm sorry to say this, but you probably won't get it back.

make a backup, so when it happen again, you always have a backup.
if you save from time to time, (or every 10min, which I have on default),
you dont lose much data if it happen again.

but I'm glad you got it working it again, happy rpg making :)

If your game is on itch you can host your workfiles there privately and set them to not be downloadable. That can save you a lot of headaches if you want a separate, offsite backup. Personally I have an offsite backup solution for events like these

Fun fact. Today it's exactly 2600 days since I met my now gf for the first time. Sometimes being a programmer can be really useful. O:)
Is RPG Maker VX (rgss2) still relevant? xD
