Cant find file for package!

I was finishing a map but after saving custom packages and testing i got the error "Can't find file for package"... well... the file is there but something must have gone bad when saving Sad

Is there a way to fix this? To remove the package or open the map without it?

Ive tried some random operations with a hex editor but it only turned the file bad...

Just look for a similar filetype, and rename that one to the package it is looking for, sometimes you can fool the editor and it will open the map never the less. If it askes for certain files in that package, re-add those, again, if needed with fake files.

Or remake the entire package from scratch, if you remember what all was sitting in it..

- Once you got the map open, simply export the complete map.
- Close the Editor
- Open the editor again, load the working files the map needs(meaning dont load the corrupt one)
- Import the map, hit rebuild and save the map again.
- Close the editor, Open the Editor and open the map.

The main part in the story is, you need to fool the editor to open the map anyway. Or redo the missing package correct from scratch.
