Updated my game project to 0.4.8, now I cant get back into any of my project scenes to edit them without GS crashing. The preview plays ok. Please help!

    Success

    Found the problem viewed the package contents of the GS app, inside the assets.xml file one of the image file name references was completely bizarre..... EG:

    <file name="IntroOverlay.png" />
    <file name="FogofWar.png" />
    <file name="IntroOverlay2.png" />
    <file name="Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#130;

    Insert a few 1000 lines of this stuff....

    Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#131;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#131;Ã&#130;Â&#130;Ã&#131;Â&#130;Ã&#130;©tobybridson.png" />
    <file name="tobybridson.png" />
    <file name="SoundSymbol.png" />
    <file name="Background Level 1 A.png" />

    Just a corrupt entry I suppose?

    Deleted this file entry and all was fixed and working again.

    The assets.xml file went from 24mb to just 8k with the manual fix. Not sure how the error in the XML occurred, corrupt file perhaps?

    what's cookin,

    hey toby, what folder did you find the assets.xml in? i'm having a similar crashing problem and i wanted to check if that is the problem.

    It was inside the game file.

    Right click (Control Click if you have a 1 button mouse) the working game file and select 'show package contents'

    The file I was having issue with was in the root of this folder. (assets.xml)

    The corruption was easy to spot due to the file size firstly, and the bizarre file reference not being like the rest.
