Hi, i have been playing with map tool for some time, iv had my fare share of issues with it but i have finally found one thats got me in a bit of a pickle. today i saved my masterpiece. and when i got home and was rdy to start adding more i got an unruly error
Could Not Load campaign.
Java.util.zip.Zipexception:error in opening zip file
Now normally this wouldnt have been a bother, every so often my auto save does its job, well now i think that ill just load up the auto save and life will be great, then i get hit with the same error. my real problem here is the only auto save that seems to work is saved about 6 hrs before the last auto save and my personal save.

That sounds like a corrupted save file.
Try using a zip fix program to fix the zip, however i think your screwed.

My advise: install Dropbox and work from there. Every time you save a repository is created so you van always go back to earlier saves.
That and backup often!!

My only advice is to save often and in incremented file names. Having dropbox open and working directly from the dropbox directory does this for you with version history, but I don't do that. I usually do mine by game date and I may toss on an "a" or something if I'm not sure how something will work out. Set your auto save to around an hour or more and never ever use the save on exit. Save first, then exit. This is what I do and I haven't had a problem in the last 5 years. But like wolph42 said, you're probably SOL.

auto save no matter how i set it give me an error every time now, simply not usable, im thinking about a fresh re-install on maptools but i am going to do this dropbox idea sounds useful.

make sure you get an invite for dropbox, this gives you more space!!! (if you want I can send you one, pm me your email address to which you want it linked)

If autosave isn't working, then either the target is write protected (you don't have permission) or the way your'e running MapTool is wrong (like from inside a zip folder). Those are my two best guesses.

Have some helpful tools here for a windows install: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=25523

I recommend installing only java 7 since there is a bug that shows up with java 8, but only in relation to <style> tags. If that's not an issue for you (not using 3.5/PF FW or similar) then java 8 works fine.
