[RESOLVED] "C2 Check Failure" when opening .capx file

  • Problem Description

    I downloaded beta release 204 (April 27). Then, when trying to open a .capx file I saved (while using beta release 203), it gave me the following errors:

    [quote:drhawpbo]---------------------------

    Construct 2 Check failure - C2 Beta Release r203

    ---------------------------

    Check failure! This is probably a bug:

    cannot find animation frame either in last_path or project location

    Condition: FileExists(GetProjectPath().c_str())

    File: Projects\AnimationFrame.cpp

    Line: 239

    Function: class std::basic_string<wchar_t,struct std::char_traits<wchar_t>,class std::allocator<wchar_t> > __cdecl AnimationFrame::GetActivePath(void) const

    Build: release 203 (64-bit) checked

    Component: Construct 2 IDE

    (Last Win32 error: 3)

    Clicking RETRY (on the alert pop-up) yields the following:

    [quote:drhawpbo]---------------------------

    Error loading project

    ---------------------------

    Failed to open project '\\?\C:\Users\Rhindon\AppData\Local\Temp\capM6WHGK\Gradient Run.caproj':

    Cannot find object texture file 'ShipHit.png' in the project texture folder. Check the file has not been renamed or removed.

    Under element: c2project \ object-folder \ object-folder \ object-type

    Line 248, column 13

    The file may be invalid. Try checking the file in a text editor (projects are saved in XML format).

    Attach a Capx

    If you unzip your .capx you will see that a lot of the folder structure is missing, including the whole Textures folder, so this is unrecoverable, unfortunately .

    Hopefully you will have an autosave or backup from the previous version.

  • I do! I do!!! Please, oh dear God in heaven (I mean that sincerely, LOL, I'm a Christian).....do tell me how do I recover the files with the autosave/backup?????

  • It's in the manual.

    Autosave files are created in the same folder - just rename them. The same goes for .backup files.

    Remove the extensions, so that the filename ends in .capx and you should be able to open them.

  • zenox98 - GOT IT! Thank you! That is SUCH a lifesaver! I'm back in business!

    Nearly seven whole days of work was lost (well...not totally true...I also save different files as I make progress, so I basically create my own "backups", too).
