hi! It was half year ago but i want to try again if i get a solution. I couldn't save maps, i researched a bit but i wasn't sure if the problem was what i think it was. Could it be that my windows user folder name contained accented characters/illegal characters so the world builder couldn't recognize it? I saved the map and when i reopened it, it was empty. If i saved elsewhere it was still empty when reopened. I want to make some crazy maps! Pls help!
I have windows 8.1 and RotWK

Thank you! Sry for bad english

Hello, where is your maps folder located? I know that accented characters cause issues with game saves and map name saves so this is very likely the problem.

I see ty It was under my username path folder which contained accented characters. If I reinstall the game and use a path that doesn't contain accented characters , will this get fixed? Or there are folders that get created in my username path folders by default which cannot be changed and solved without OS reinstall and proper name?

I cannot say yes or no because I cannot replicate the issue you are having. I have seen that accented characters crash Worldbuilder but I don't know the extent of the issue.
