So today I was trying to load a backup savefile cause i needed to do something, but when i go to the file area where all the backup save files are, I try to open them but it opens up with notepad. I just want to load my old savefile but it wont let me. Any fix to this? Oh and if I try too change the app the files open with, it gives me an error message.

was just trying to use one of the files as a backup so i can go back and redo something. Its in the right spot and everything. The issue is it wont let me open / do anything to the file, and if I rename it it doesnt do anything or stuff.

You have to rename one of them to game.rxdata

.rxdata is an autoextention

You cannot open then with anything other then rpgmaker

 

You could try game_2.rxdata or any numbered on like that as well

k sorry for the late reply, but i'll try this. Thank you!

 

i tried to rename the backup savefile game.rxdata but it didn't work. here is a screenshot of my files here. The one named game.rxdata is one of the backup save files i wanted to turn into my main savefile. https://gyazo.com/b37ad5c6696f1b919633bd6c08c3015f I also tried to put a number there, nothing changed.

Yeah, that's a game_2.rxdata file not a game.rxdata one, it happens when you have a save file active and click in "new game", reborn allows you to have multiple saves without having to mess around with files. just change from game.rxdata to game_2.rxdata or go into your game and click in "other save files".

yea i think i just screwed something, so when i removed the saves i had in the saved games ( besides the one i was going to use ) it removed my save file completley. I now just dont see a save file anymore. Tried moving them back nothing. So I think the save file just deleted itself.
