When I try and save a map which I have edited on the Giants Editor, it keeps crashing and wont allow me to save the file. Please help. Thanks

what did you change in the map before you want to save it?

Does it also crash if you don't change anything?
In this case please check which location you are trying to save to and if you have permission to edit/save files in this location

Hi Emil,

I wanted to place in a new silage pit and it doesn't crash if i dont change anything.



Emil Drefers (Unknown) 11.07.2016 07:43

that 'new silage pit' is probably an object which has been on that map before?
Or did you import it?

Anyhow, if you could give us steps for reproducing the problem we might be able to find the cause of it.

the silage pit is an object which is already on the map.

I was wondering the same thing I have several versions of Giants editor to see if it would work or not but when I try to open maps with any of them they will glitch and the program will not even pop up. The only one that works is Giants editor 6.0.5, the others will just crash, but when I edited a map on 6.0.5 and I try to save it, well it crashes and comes up with Giants editor 6.0.4 has crashed, there isn't even a 6.0.4 out there was wondering what I need to do to fix it so I can start edit maps again, Thanks again and great product!

Same thing, when I save a map in 6.0.5 it says 6.0.4 and crashes at the beginning of game. I even tried just saving in GE with no changes, still crashes.

Good to see others with the same problem, Emil has helped me in the past. They will find the problem.

Great Product
