In Topic: Recovering a Corrupted Song

Was this made in v3? Usually with v3 songs, it's possible to open the file as a zip file. For whatever reason this file isn't letting me open it as a zip archive, saying that the file is invalid.

I'm wondering if a zip archive repair program like winzip would fix it...

 

I noticed this as well. NOTE files are, in laymen's terms, just zip files with some extra coding. That being said, they cannot be repaired the same way as zip files, since no zip repair program would be able to repair the data that's unique to NOTE files.

 

For comparison's sake, I took a screenshot of what I've found. This shows the header portion of a NOTE file and a zip file respectively. As you can see, NOTE files are unencrypted, and contain information that tells the Notessimo player how to read the .xml files stored inside.

Being able to edit this part of a NOTE file would actually allow me to fix the problem I have, since I could just make a new NOTE file that tells the player to read the sheets from the old NOTE file; simply making a NOTE file with the sheets in it doesn't work, since the player does not look for the sheets unless this part of the file tells it to. However, I cannot edit this part of the file, and so, I have my problem.

I couldn't log into your account using the email and password. Regardless, I do want to give some card suggestions, so I'll just DM you here.

 

Also, you might want to proofread some of the cards you've got now, some of them have bad phrasing.

Right now, everyone's having this problem. It's happened before, we just have to wait for the owner, Starburst, to notice that there's a problem and fix it.

 

Last time, it happened when the CC2017 was updated, since the file was getting so large, but I don't know what's going on now. Someone has already sent Starburst a PM, it's only a matter of time until it's fixed.
