1) Please try to fix any bugs that cause this problem. I hate it when I lose work.

2) When it does happen, try to make the error message a little less...scary.


Thank you for taking the time to read this signature. This signature loves you.

Yeah this just happened to me recently after a few hours of work. I had to start from scratch. From now on I'm making backups of all my worlds.


Out of the 7 schools I applied for, Carnegie Mellon is the only one that didn't accept me. They wait listed me, but I hold no grudges. Alice is awesome and Claytronics , om*g. Some one should figure out how to put these two projects together. It would revolutionize not only the gaming industry, but the world... scratch that, the Universe... scratch that, the Multiverse!

This error is very annoying, but its fixable sometimes. What I find more annoying is that sometimes while saving Alice crashes and closes, meaning the world file goes corrupt. Ive had to resort to manually copy and pasting the Alice worlds in windows explorer to make backups, cos the backup feature Alice has also is a miserable failure.
Also when Alice crashes a file in the .Alice2 folder called AliceHasNotExitedYet or something like that does not get deleted, whereas it would get deleted when Alice closes normally. This means I have to manually locate and delete it, because for some bizarre reason Alice resets all my preferences when it starts if that file exists. And my preferences are a lot more suitable for me than Alice's rubbish default preferences, especially the screen size, cant see anything by default.

I have mostly moved on from Alice, but may still respond to messages if important [-]
