Hey guys, I hope everyone is well!

Guys, I have a question. Is it possible that a file like a single map, for example, is for some reason corrupted and the maker won't warn you about it? Or will it always warn you about files that it can't read/are corrupted?

My fear is: I have multiple copies of the project, but I need to delete old ones to add the new ones from time to time after a considerable time of development. My fear is that I could replace/save these projects with corrupted/damaged files.

If the maker always warn me about it, then I'll be at easy hahahaha

Thanks for your time, everyone! I wish you all the best!

Unfortunately I've had this issue before. If the files get corrupted, the maker just tells you that they're unreadable and unable to really do anything about it. I had this happen on VX Ace - not on MV yet, but it was a huge issue with the former.

Keeping multiple copies of your project is an ace idea and I recommend keeping it updated as frequently as possible!

But the maker does warn you, right? Like, if I try to open the project it will tell me that a file is corrupted, correct?

My fear is, keeping developing a project with a file that is corrupted without me knowing about it.

If it does warn me, I'll just delete it and get another copy, no worries :)

Thanks for replying!

Oh, yes yes, it will tell you if a file is corrupted - and the file will look very strange too (tilesets aren't loading, characters files are missing) - it's very very noticeable!

I've started the first steps of the final few maps that I need to make for B:ms. I haven't been able to say that in a really, really long time. It'd probably be a good idea to blog about this or something.
Question for the Mods: What am I supposed to do when I can't make a synopsis 350 words long? (for project recruitment thread) @Shaz @mlogan
The game is meant to be more on the simple side in order to be achievable so I'm a bit stuck...
