You did the slope of the ceiling or the floor in this sector?

There are 2 solutions:

1. Return to backup version without this sector
2. Edit source of mp-file and remove data of this sector using hex editor

Sounds nasty. Does it do the same with any .mp file?

The only thing I would suggest is making another copy of the whole LED to another location on your HD and see if it works. Don't copy the one you have, d/l a fresh one. Delete the original LED and also the .ini file which may be in the windows folder or it may be buried somewhere else - depends on your os. Do a search for .ini files. You could try deleting this file before installing a new copy of LED and see if that makes any difference.

If it's just one .mp then follow previous advice. I have some RAS .mp files and some of those will not open at all in the LED. :? All the more reason to backup your .mp before every editing session.

The Ceiling/floor is not sloped. Led crash only when i modify determinate sectors, not all, actualy are 2. Strange thing, if i make a copy of the bad sector, its sane. Unfortunately i dont have any backup of the map :cry: . The only way is edit the source file? How can i do that?

I think you might have to bite the bullet and start again. :? And backup every session.

You can open files using a hex editor, and you can edit them. But it's all machine code and you would have to know exactly what you were editing.
