Map editor and opening text disappearing ANSWERED

Post by Field marshal Mick » Thu Feb 07, 2019 10:02 pm

I have been finishing up on some maps that I have for the Go For Broke campaign and other ideas. I have tested them out and made sure the triggers were correct and the maps were desirable as stated in the forum. I thought that my creations were ready to submit Then I noticed that the opening text that I spent some good time on had disappeared. This is on the maps that I have been working on since the last update. The only one that has the opening text is on a questionable map idea that I did before the update and have not worked on since. It is upsetting to lose all your time and effort put into a project.

I emailed one of the maps. I just thought of something. Is there a character limit? The opening text for these maps were lengthy. If that is case I could try to split up the opening text and use a dialogue trigger to make it all fit.

I thought of that when I discovered that my work was lost. It would probably make it easier to write it down too.
There is a definite problem though. I earlier tried writing a few words down on the map set up and exited the menu. I then almost immediately went back to check on it and nothing.

Ok. That seems to be the problem. What is weird is I often forget to use that button but never had any problem until now. Thank you.
