Failed to open project

I get this error message when I try to open up my project.

---------------------------
Error loading project
---------------------------
Failed to open project '\\?\C:\Users\Dell\AppData\Local\Temp\cap1IQKK0\New project.caproj':

Parameter specifies event variable 'Unlockmail' which does not appear to be a variable within its scope
Line 1249, column 17
In MGgreymon.xml

The file may be invalid. Try checking the file in a text editor (projects are saved in XML format).
---------------------------
OK   
---------------------------


I decided I don't need this event sheet or layout so I deleted it, zipped it back up and changed it back to a capx file. Now cs2 just stops responding when trying to open it up.

You cannot just delete project files! This will corrupt your project. You must delete things from within Construct 2's editor only.

I tried to recover your project but it proved too time consuming; there seem to be a very large number of variables that now have missing references. Presumably they all were defined in the event sheet that you deleted and now Construct 2 can't find the references to them. Do you have a backup you can restore from?

@ashley Hi

I am running into a similar problem. I didn't delete anything from the project. I just turn off my computer.
I don't know what to do :(

Here is the .capx

https://www.dropbox.com/s/xerkg7djnni9h ... .capx?dl=0

And .zip folder with all the assets and everything
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1e85ftynuaux8 ... r.zip?dl=0

Please help! :(

I am also having a similar issue. I don't believe that I deleted anything. I just restarted the computer and then it no longer worked. My backup file has the same issue.

Message: SigmundF can only post plain text URLS until they have 500 rep. 1 URLS modified. Why?
I have the same problem,

"Failed to open project on 'route'

Error document empty.

The file may be invalid. Try checking the file in a text editor (projects are saved in XML format)."

Edit: Damn it was terrifying. I fixed it with the first comment: how-do-i-open-a-capx-autosave-file_t99544

This happened to me as well. It most likely has something to do with me cleaning up files on my computer with a program.

Luckily I had backups....

Good reason to have it auto back up more than a few times.
