Hi, backup files are regularly created in the project folder, they can be opened using the Open project button and changing the filter to .backup.

Hey David, I down-graded mine-imator and the crashing has gone away I don't really need the features in the new version I guess.

Good news! The legendary 2.0 Anniversary Update is here for testing on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms! This update is in fact so grand that it has been split into two phases that will be revealed over the next few months as pre-releases:

Phase 1 (May 30th): Multi-platform support, performance improvements, new world importer and multi-monitor support by @david
Phase 2 (Late August(?)): New user interface, logo, rendering and animation capabilities by @Nimi, also includes all features in Phase 1 and Minecraft 1.19 support

Since these builds will contain many features and be built on an entirely new C++ engine, expect bugs to appear! As usual, please report them in the Issues and Bugs subforum with as much information as possible included in your topic and project files if possible.

Note: Back up your projects before installing, or install in a separate location!
Now, without further delays...
