Is it possible for you to post any project file you have?

of course (i should have thought about that).

after the initial shock i checked the other files and the level_1.xml (this is a layout) is also busted. it looks like my comupter crashed during the saving process, or more likely just the program. i don't recall any incidents like that, everything went smoothly the last time i worked on it.

i also want to apologise for my scatterbrained post. Pete2011-08-29 13:36:36

Have you also tried updating to r52?

Oops, just saw your post, we posted at the same time.

I'm afraid if you open some of the files in Notepad you'll see they've been overwritten with junk. It's probably not possible to recover the project. Sorry :(

We fixed a couple of possible-project-corruption bugs in r51, released a week ago. I'm afraid you may have run in to a bug that was already fixed. I would encourage you to always stay up to date to reduce the chance of you running in to issues like this!

god dammit... usually i would do that, but i was waiting for moneybookers to be available and didn't want to deal with the limitations of the freeware version.

but it's not too bad. i'm glad that it's only the layout that got killed. i edited an older project file so that it contains all the sprites i added and the eventsheets are fine too.

keeping everything so nicely seperated was a wise choice!
