[ISSUE] Beta 4 Installer deletes all maps
« on: February 20, 2010, 10:07:16 pm »

I have lost all my custom maps thanks to the beta4 installer.
It shouldn't delete the entire folder, only the files that came with beta 3.

I'm going through some recovery software at the moment to try and restore them. But I'm afraid most are overwritten by now.
*edit* Yup they're gone.

To install beta 4 you need a clean folder as most beta 3 maps dont work and other issues. The uninstall beta 3 was on the installer

Yes, I know how it happened. I'm saying it shouldn't do that.
Most (if not all) other uninstallers will only delete/overwrite files that they recognize. Everything else is left intact.

Sorry for the loss Koba, we will be more explicit in the next installer. However, lodle is right all your custom maps are worthless in Beta 4 since they are not compatible with the new system. Rest assured you can always redownload them as well.
