I'v been working on a map for some time now i save it and opened an older map to work on but when I saved the old map I just clicked save not save as, so it save it over the level that I'v been working on! :furious: :mad: :furious: :'( :angry: :cry: :clueless: :dropsjaw: Is there any way I can get back those files? :clueless:
huh? can ya sorta reword that a bit please...
Look in the autosave.map file, if you're lucky you'll fid it there. If not, you'll have to go back to an older backup, or start again.
Try mapname.bak, that should have an older version provided GTK didn't autosave.
were is the autosave.map file?
And is mapname.bak a file folder thing or do I go into the game and type it shift ~ ?
Both autosave.map and yourmapname.bak are in base\maps, same place you save your maps to. To open the .bak file either go File->open and type in *.* then hit Enter to be able to select it or use explorer and rename it to have a .map extension.
sorry if i'm not to big of a computer expert when I right click the bak I click open and and the options "use the web to find the (apropriat"Im a bad speller") program" or " select the program from a list :confused: I didn't Realy understand what you ment so could you please reword it? sorry if im a bother i'v posted 70some threads in the past 3 day
O if it helps
Try to keep up
I played my map on JK2 then I added a thing to it, saved as "bt", opened older map, did a toutch up, saved not save as, played my old map on Jk2, then I tryed to play my bt map but it loaded my old map, thats when I learned I saved over it.
Did you get all that?
I figered out what you ment and tried it, no it did'nt work i'v got a couple ideas i'll give e'm a try
And thanks for the help, From now on i'll remember to keep a backup of all my levels.
