I am a UI designer working for Playstation and have recently downloaded the trial of Flash Catalyst in order to test the validity of using it for game UI prototyping. This has worked well for me up until a week ago when I attempted to open the project file I had been working on and it simply does not open - no error message or anything, it just sits on the progress screen and never manages to open the file! I have left this for many hours in the hope that it might open and have tried multiple times to no avail. Has anyone else encountered this problem? If so can anyone help me salvage the file? I'm gutted as this amounts to a weeks worth of work so if anyone can help I'd be extremely grateful!
Have you tried opening any of your backups or previous versions?
I would try opening the file in Flash Builder. It might give you an error that will help solve the problem. You can download a free trial from Adobe.com
There is a limit to amount that Flash Catalyst (or any program) can handle. You might be able to remove a state and it's assets to get you back on track.
Unfortunately I didnt make any backups
I have tried to open the file in Flash builder but it automatically loads flash catalyst as normal then fails to open. Is there a way of loading it in builder without loading catalyst? I'm not really familiar with builder so have just downloaded the trial. Tried importing the fxp file but cant find an option to do that.
