PLEASE don't post images of your entire desktop, attach entire campaign files when only a single file is needed, or generally act in some other anti-social behavior. :)

 Post subject: Any way of converting / opening old campaign files ?
PostPosted: Sat Feb 10, 2018 6:51 am 
I have a bunch of old .cmpgn files from 1.2b32.
One I've managed to open, but the rest all say "Could not load campaign. java.util.zip.ZipException".
They could all be corrupted, but it's unlikely that all files except one is broken?

I would think stepping through the major version changes would get the job done. What those are you'll have to figure out yourself.

To clarify what Alias is saying...

First, go back and try to open those campaign files in 1.2b32 to make sure they aren't corrupted.

Then you can try jumping forward a few versions. Open the files and re-save them in each newer version it will work with. This will slowly update the compatibility.
