An attempt was made to move the file pointer...

Postby Aguadiablo2 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 5:49 pm

An attempt was made to move the file pointer before the beginning of the file.

The above error message I keep receiving when trying to open my game in Developer.

Can anyone advise me on whether I can fix this issue or not?

Can you see if you have a backup file of your game and then try loading that?

Not that it's going to help you much, but that has happened to me more than a few times. :(

Is it possible that you can wait a day or two? Maybe someone can help. There are people from different time zones reading this. So who knows?
