EDIT: I've worked around this problem, for whatever reason, something completely deleted the textures and animation folder in my project. After manually add everything in again, I was able to load up the project and it looks fine. It will, however, not run. I get the following errors when I try to run it, regardless of browser:
   



Here is the (somewhat) fixed .capx:

Here

OLD:
I had nearly completed my game, I saved the file went out for about 30 minutes and came back. I tried to open the file and am told sky.png is missing. The .capx was nearly 30mbs, and is now about 13kbs. My computer may have hibernated while I was gone. What's wrong with my project? I have no backups.

Link to .capx file (required!):
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/44188718/OrngVsBlu.capx

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Project

Observed result:
Nothing works

Expected result:
I expected my project to be there

Browsers affected:
N/A

Operating system & service pack:
Windows 7 64 Service pack 1

Construct 2 version:
Release 139 64-bit/SteamDraspur2013-09-03 02:35:15

Best learn to start backing up then. Good developer habits cannot be replaced by software improvements.

I had been but construct wasn't sticking to it's file limit and the backup file became several gigabites big and I didn't want google drive to randomly delete my stuff if it hit the limit while I didn't know. I have been working on this all day, and when your in that zone you just build and build without thinking the world would screw you over.

If you saved to a Dropbox folder, Dropbox has version control, you might be able to find a working copy

Closing, we cannot do anything about projects that are already broken apart from possibly recover them. To be able to resolve this bug, we need to know what caused the project to be broken in the first place.

Note your original .capx file is completely missing all image files. You can rename it .zip and open it to see this yourself. So there is probably no hope of recovering this project.

I noticed that, which is why I updated my original post. What can I do about the three error messages? Why would yous say there is no hope of recovering the project when I can open the project and edit it within perfectly fine?

The project is still corrupt with lots of images missing. We can't fix the original problem without knowing how they went missing in the first place.

Could you at least give an interpretation of the errors? Is there any way around them? I recovered all the original sprites except the 2 images which I created in the image editor. Why would one or two missing sprites corrupt 20 hours of work? Should I open a new bug report concerning these errors as I resolved the original issue?

If anyone finds this project in a search, I resolved it. Construct 2 wasn't giving me an error message for one of the objects, because I wasn't using it in the layout. After deleted everything ran fine (thank god).

Thanks for everyones help...
