#UE4 Error Logs: Map Appears to be an Asset File

By November 15, 2019No Comments

Working through my game, I lost power and the PC shut down unexpectedly. When the power came back on and I opening my game in the #unrealengine editor I got this error:

“Error: Map Appears to be an Asset File.”

So like most people who use Linux for a long time and then switch to windows, I thought the most plausible solution would be to restart #UE4 editor. And that didn’t work.

So luckily, I had a COPY (not the same as buiding, compiling & saving) of  the most recent changes in my map.

This isn’t debugging, but time & again, I’ve had the editor crash so  making copies is HUGELY BENEFICIAL.
