ARGHHHH! I've been using GameMaker for years now but have NEVER seen a crash like this, which caused complete corruption and data loss of thousands of lines of code. Working on a new project which to my fault I hadn't yet backed up but was simply trying to load a sprite from a sprite sheet PNG obtained from the popular royalty free 2D character generation website... and once I got all the images on the sprite sheet set correctly as per number of images, rows, size, offset etc.. GameMaker started processing the sprite and then hard crashed. I had to force close GM 1.4 from my task manager, and when I opened my project again after re-opening GM, it came up with a little white window that reads: Error loading: C:Users\MyPC\Documents\GameMaker\...\spr_alex.sprite.gmx.File not present ..and when I hit OKAY to get past that error message, it loads up my project not just missing that alex sprite that caused GM to crash, but missing ALL of my objects where my dozen+ hours of code was contained!! Now I get that I should have backed my project up before this point, however to have GM crash and corrupt ALL of my object data and code simply trying to import a sprite sheet I feel is unacceptable. I paid $100 for this GameMaker application and it has been out many years now, and this just should NEVER happen, period. However, really what I'd love help with, if anyone knows.... Is.. Does anyone know if there might be a way to fix my project or recover all of my object data and code it seems like I have lost? The reason I ask is because if I go into my project folder manually outside of GameMaker, I see all my object data in an object folder etc Thanks in advance.
