One of the layout XML files got corrupted. There's a line that looks like this:

<effect-fallbac <jump-strength>650</jump-strength>

Blue forest.xml also has a corrupt line.

There's nothing we can do other than fix the file unless you know what caused this in the first place. Here's a link to the recovered version:

You're lucky this was recoverable - you should definitely keep backups so you can easily revert in case this kind of thing happens. If there had been an unrecoverable error, this project would have been permanently lost.
