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.

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.

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?
