Vis crashed during a save and run and saved the game as a blank .ved

    From my messages log:
    00:27:44: Error: can't open file 'graphics\Rooms\Room04 - TavEx\Objects\foganim.png' (error 2: the system cannot find the file specified.)


    As said above, Visionaire crashed while I was doing a Save and Run. When I went restarted and loaded the .ved, I found everything blank. All my rooms, characters, options...everything was gone. I looked in my build folder and it found out it turned into a 0KB file. Thankfully, I had a fairly recent backup, but I did lose several hours of work. confuse

    This might have been just a one time fluke, but I thought I'd bring it to your intention just in case.

    sorry you lost several hours of work. The next version of Visionaire will always create a backup file (.bak) of the current project file before saving to avoid such scenarios.
