Default unable to load wold - help desperately needed - 05-01-2011, 03:00 PM

Hey all,

I am unable to load a world that I have been working on for a long time. I would really, *really* appreciate being able to recover any or all of this file. Please let me know if you think you can help.

You can download my file here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9101279/experimental.a2w

I would greatly appreciate anyones help in getting this file to open!!


Full error message (saving as text in this post caused an error): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9101279/error.png

Short error message:
Unable to load world
Alice 2.2

Throwable that caused the error:
java.io.FileNotFoundException: Not Found: NoCheck/__Unnamed3__/
elementData.xml

What I've tried:
I've read through the posts on here pretty extensively. I'm trying to unzip the file, make changes, and rezip it as a2w to see if it will load. The problem is, even if I go through these steps without changing anything, the error message changes, suggesting that I'm doing something wrong.

Anyway, post the world please and copy and paste the error that pops up when you try to open the world.

I have been dead for quite some time now; not much hope for resurrection.

Even if I unzip the a2w and rezip it - without changing anything - the error changes to the following. This makes me think there is something fundamentally wrong with way I'm trying to fix the file


Unable to load world




Alice version: 2.2 02/10/2011



Throwable that caused the error:

java.io.FileNotFoundException: Not Found: elementData.xml

If it's throwing errors after simply unzipping and re-zipping, then there's something wrong on Alice's side, not the world's. For some reason, Alice is looking for a piece of the file that it expects to be there, but doesn't exist, so it throws the error and refuses to load the world.

Unfortunately when this happens, the only thing you can do is restore a backup and work from that. You could try placing some dummy data in the directory Alice is trying to read from (I was considering copying one of the unnamed folders, renaming it according to what Alice claimed to be looking for, then trying to open that in Alice), but I doubt that will work very well (if at all).

Thanks, x2495iiii. Would you mind trying quickly? I tried something similar, but have no experience with this, so could easily be making a mistake.

I'm looking at 10's of hours of rework at this point, so would really appreciate your help
