    [SOLVED] Unespected File Format: Broken FLA 

    So i was working on a bug fix for Days Of Blood and then i hitted save like i normally do when i do a change… flash took more tan usual to save and then the computer freezed and restarted itself!!

    After i turned back on and tried to open the file i got: “Unespected file format”… i went nuts, freaked out!
    Googled arround the solutions…I tried the solution of converting it to a RAR file and trying to fix it… didn’t worked… nothing worked…

    And then, i went to this path:
    C:\Documents and Settings\{YOUR_USER}\Local Configuration\Application Data\Adobe\Flash CS5\en_US\Configuration

    There i found a file called: TMP2n2naavfjn.fla, that was my last opened file, the one before the save was done. I copied it to another folder, renamed it, and place it back were the old broken fla was, opened it, and everything worked perfectly, compiled the swf without any problem.

    I found 2 files, but i located the broken one because i recognized the size in bytes.

    What did i learned: never, NEVER, work with only ONE copy of a fla for your proyect… ALWAYS backup your FLA files.
    Saving is not enough…

    I was lucky this time. This will never happen to me again.

    I even started to think about using the new XML format that CS5 brings?

    Anyway, i hope this helps someone arround the web.

      Hi Pablo. I’m just beginning to mess around with papervision 3d for the second time. However, the only problem is that I am having trouble finding Character collada files which are Animated. I can get a lot of things to work I just need some DAE character files which have animations of walking and running, standing, jumping, etc. Do you have a bunch of files in that format which are animated that I could mess around with? In addition i tries google but didn’t find animations of characters, am I missing something? I have spent hours and hours and on looking for such a file and found one of yours that has a walk and shrug. Please help. Please email me some if you could mail me some or place to download them. Thank you.

        you wotn find DAE file, you have to search for PK2 and PK3 files (quake files) you will find a LOT of them, and then you will have to convert them to DAE. I can’t remember the process but if you google arround you will get your answers.

        Remember, PK2 and PK3 arte the file extension of quake characters files.

          Thank you. However, do you know if they are animated characters? Thats what im having trouble finding them/.\\.

          yeah, most PK2 and PK3 assests are model files with ALL the animations of each character in he same file (walk,run,hit,die,win,etc)
