SLADE needs a recovery feature.

Recommended Posts

So I closed down slade and as it was closing down, my computer bricked (which isn't the first time my computer has done this), and when I open up slade again and select the mod I was working on, the latest version of that mod got corrupted and wouldn't open sending me back about 2 months of development... You can expect my reaction to this and now I'm stuck wondering: "why does slade not have a recovery feature?", which would've helped out a lot in my case... @sirjuddington PLEASE make this a feature in the next update. I have a feeling that having a recovery feature for slade would greatly help out anyone who had their computer brick or anything like would have their mod preserved just like nothing ever happened...

Are there any .bak files in your folder?

 

This. Slade already makes .bak files to restore the previous version of a wad. Simply remove the .bak extension from it to restore the older version.

Any more than that, and you might want to start investigating offsite backups for your system such as dropbox, one drive or google drive, which all keep file histories. And frankly you should also fix your computer given your blatant data loss issues. Priorities.

I agree, but...

 

Copy latest file. Paste elsewhere. Rename and append today's date. That's your backup feature!

I tried repairing the file with winrar, and when I opened it in slade, there was nothing in it...

 

I tried everything...

even that didn't work, and I tried it just now.

 

I instead chose to go back to an older version of the mod, at the cost of when I try to test it in gzdoom (forgive me for going off topic), the mod takes an upwards of 2-3 minutes to load...

Also, tried it just now, that didn't work either...

Honestly, I don't think anything would work, going back to an older version and going from there seemed to work for me.

Sorry guys, I don't think this can be solved in the traditional sense, but at least we tried... :/

I second this notion. Because sooner or later, you're going to have problems down the road..
