So I was making this map of a cellar for a wallpaper and there was this door that I made as a compound and it disappeared all of a sudden when I tried to move it and when I tried to focus on it using the object finder, the editor screen went black and I couldn't get it to work even when I refocused on a different object.

Any help pls? This map was gonna turn out very fabulous for a wallpaper!

that happened to me. if you select a lot of stuff and press b then the whole level editor lags and crashes and you have to create a new map. there's nothing you can do. thats why you should never have compounds
Lol. I don't know, may I have the map? I can try to fix it.

Solved it yesterday!

All I had to do is open the map file by notepdad ++

and copy this line from another map
