View Full Version : jk2Radiant backup files?

07-09-2002, 03:38 AM
After doing a whole load of work on a map, JK2Radiant had an error and crashed. And I know that every once and a while JK2Radiant saves the file automatically. In base/maps I see "ctf_hoth.map" (my map) and "ctf_hoth.bak" which is what I'm guessing is the back-up file. But, how do I open the back-up file? Please help, I don't want to do that all over again.

I know this isn't quite the same thing as you are asking about (on which I have no idea), but someone once suggested using the autosave_sp.map which should be in the maps folder, it should have saved the last version of the map before it crashed, won't neccisarily work but worth a go.

Just rename ctf_hoth.bak to ctf_hoth.map and load it with Radiant. :)
