Hi,

I got really annoyed with GameSalad.
As I was working on a project the whole thing randomly crashed (I saved it 1 min before crash)

Then I tried to restart and reopen the project but this happened

I've restarted GameSalad several times and it always opens it like that.

Thanks,
Victor

    1. Make a copy of the project (backup)
    2. Right click on the original and choose show package contents. Look in the actors, scenes, images folders and see if .xml files exist.
    3. Delete the gamesalad app and redownload it
    4. Reopen original and see if that works

    you can also try giving your mac a reboot

    Ah FEW!

    I just remembered I had a time machine backup from 4 hours before so I got the project back and only had to do a bit to catch up on what went wrong.
    This means that the file has been corrupted by GameSalad

    That's quite a major bug if anyone doesn't have regular backups they could loose all their work

    I've had this happen when attempting to copy behaviors between projects. I constantly save back up files of my project.

    I keep 5 backups. I create a backup everyday that I am doing major work. =)
