Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

HDD dead, lost everything...able to recover project from .pak ?!

A few days ago my HDD decided to die overnight, and needless to say I didn't have a backup, because I'm smart like that... Good news is, I have an older version of the game that I installed on a laptop to test for performance. Now my question is..is there a way to recover my project back from the .pak file ?! I tried googling around and found a few topics where they mentioned that you might be able to...but how, no idea. I'd rather not throw away 2 months of hard work, so if there's any way to recover my project..

Resources is still better than nothing I guess, I'll still look around and see if there's another way..but not getting my hopes up, thanks tho.

@eXi Yeah, it won't even start sadly and I can hear a worrying noise inside when I shake it..I might be able to send it to a service or something, but I'm a student so I can't afford to recover the files, and even that is not a guarantee, so yeah..lesson learned.

Yeah that is sad. Maybe using a raidsystem in the future with some mirrored HDDs. It's not that expensive.

Dropbox or MEGA mirror also a good place to store backups.

Have you already tried to use recover the HDD? I mean, there are awesome tools around the net, that can recover nearly everything.

Or does the HDD not even start? Have you tried using it external?

I can't help you with the .pak file though :/
