    If you need to contact customer support or if there is something that you would like to see in Fantasy Grounds that isn't currently part of the software or if there is something you think would improve a ruleset then add your idea to the customer support portal https://fantasygroundsunity.atlassia...stomer/portals

    Ok I found another issue I could use some help with. My Character Manager lost its data. There are no characters in the folder. Is there a restore procedure for this side of FG?

    Look in <FG app data>\characters there'll be FG XML files with <ruleset name>.xml and also backup session files.

    There is 1 xml for PFRPG which I am missing my Pathfinder characters. But no backup sessions just various rule set folders. What should I do here?

    Were the PCs created on the same computer under the Manage Characters -> ruleset selection or where they created on another computer? Or did you use Manage Characters -> campaign to view PCs you control in a campaign?

    So I recently lost all of FG but used a recovery tool to find db.xml file and db backups and db session files. How do I restore those? no campaign folder left anymore, sadly. Though do have campagin xml document and campaign registry.lau

    Also lost a big mod of custom content - couldn't recover a .mod file but did recover an xml by the same name - any way to recover that into a .mod file?

    Create a new campaign, exit FG. Then replace the db.xml and other files you recovered for those in that campaign. Start up and see if you got lucky.

    Do they same things for your module xml.

    Otherwise might have to get into manually editing those xml files.

    Oh, and do all you testing with COPIES not the originals of the recovered files

    So that worked for the campaign, sadly it wasn't the campaign I was looking for. =P Back to digging through lost files. Great to know it works.

    FYI, the .mod did not recover from the xml of the same name. I put it in the modules folder and couldn't find it in the game. Is there a resource on manually editing an xml to recover it as a .mod? How do I do something like that?



    ------------------------
    Update: got an undelete/recovery tool and after MANY hours of searching found my old files, restored them and the old campaign works again! Now just need to move over to unity! =) Thanks for the help everyone.

    Ahoy all! I'm following this thread after losing my campaign data. I went in and renamed a backup db.xml file to the new db.xml file but still no characters, no encounters, no campaign notes, all of the images I've added are there. Any suggestions ?
