Well, I have started with developing games a few days ago and I got this error while trying to open my game file: "Could not load game. Resource listing is possibly corrupt". I checked the resource listing and it looks fine for me. Can you guys help me?

Ah! I see what might be the problem! There is a font that is not a valid font. Also, there seems to be alot of special charictars in your data.xml file.

Are you talking about Vagnok or wenter13?

How about you? Are you still stuck?

I am good. Mine has been fixed. I am talking about wenter13, the one with the .zip
the trick to fixing this is to find files that are false with "0kb" space.

Can you post exactly what's in your data.xml file

The file is under <games><your_game><resources>data.xml

Is it just those 2 lines?

post modified. All you do is replace the files that are false that have "0kb" with a place holder, and you can easily open the game. But, if there is something wrong with the data.xml, you need to ML (major leauge) programmer.

Thanks. I got your original post. Wenter13 problem seems to be different from yours and is font related as you pointed out.

Can you post exactly what's in your data.xml file

The file is under <games><your_game><resources>data.xml

Is it just those 2 lines?


Oh, i'm sorry, i just discovered there 2 data.xml files each one at Link folder and Resources folder

There a data.xml of Run and Gun Example is corrupt...

Well, i can't post code here due to:

The message exceeds the maximum allowed length (20000 characters).


But it has 407 lines of code, it looks pretty normal... no weird errors.

Hi Vagnok,

I'm no sure I understand. You mention data.xml as corrupt but also no weird errors.

Can you post a zip of the entire game folder for that game like the top post from wenter13?

Also, did you update your stencylworks to 401 which is the latest version? Can you also tell us briefly what you did before getting this error.
