I suddenly ran out of harddrive space and Flash crashed while saving and corrupted my main .fla file!!!
Good thing I backup my files every day, and my to-do list says I've only made 1 change to the file today.

Everyone should learn from me.

I heard you can use external .as3 files. That way you can even use some private version control system (SVN or GitHub) and log all the changes.

but hey, it works, you could always get a larger harddrive for your computer and transfer all files to the new harddrive, or delete old files

Can't you use flash decompilers to convert .swf files to their .fla form?

I mean... I might be wrong... and even if I'm not, they might not work perfectly, but if it's true, you could theoretically (at least in this scenario) just paid a bit of money (inconvenient, definitely) and used the EBF4ver0.2 swf you uploaded here, and have all the data from the second beta stage retrieved... I think.

I mean, I don't know if that works... and even if it does, it'd be inconvenient... and if you hadn't uploaded it, you'd still be screwed... but it would beat remaking the game from scratch.

Decompilers are shit. They can be used mostly only for extracting sprites/pictures/animations from games

Good thing you save backups... Wait... didn't something like this happen when you where working with EBF3? :confused:
