Okay, today i open up GTK and my map, and every entity is gone. NPC's, doors, switches, EVERYTHING.Even some of the normal walls are gone. Why has this happened! This mans that i'm going to have to start four moths of work over again, and i REALLY want to know WHY this has happened, or a way to fix it. If anybody has ANY information about this or it has happened to them, PLEASE HELP ME.

ok, first, go to where the map was saved, you should see the file plus another file with the name but a .bak file Rename the .bak file to a .map name Hopefully that isnt ruined either :/ good luck:uhm:

It Made me kick a hole in the cat next door! It was so frustrating, all that work gone! But .bak (stands for backup) to .map works. If you have already compiled it into an .bsp you can Decompile that back into an .map too.

yendor1Rename the .bak file to a .map name

I guess that's what he means ;) I'm not a mapper, but what I can gather from this is that the .bak is a backup file. What you'll probably want to do is move the .map file to another folder, then rename the .bak "whateveryourfileiscalled.map" and hope that the backup doesn't have the error. I wouldn't delete the original, though. Whenever I do something like that I always end up regretting it.

Thanks for your help everyone =) I think it messed up because i tried to make every surface in the map caulk at one moment, or something similar. Fortunately i had compiled all of the .bak and .map etc files to send to a friend about a week ago, and not much work had been done since then, so not muich was lost. Form now on, i'm backing up the map eevery day. Thanks again and again =D :lol: :bows: :lol: =D
