    Where are you storing your FG Data folder (i.e. what's the full path to the folder) and do you have full read/write access to that location?
    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 wish list http://fg2app.idea.informer.com/

    Thanks for posting.

    Was that the actual campaign.xml file? Because it contains the data from a db.xml file. I've known the campaign.xml file to rarely get corrupted (become zero length) but I've never heard of it getting overwritten with the data from db.xml.

    The campaign.xml file is very short and contains little data. A 5E campaign.xml will contain just this:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
    <root version="3.3">
    	<password></password>
    	<ruleset>5E</ruleset>
    	<username>GM</username>
    </root>
    Are you doing any editing on that file at all?
    When is that data changing? When you exit a campaign in FG if you immediately open that file what does it look like?

    Yeah, that's got corrupted:



    Are you using a password with that campaign? If so, does it have any non standard characters in it?

    Copy over the attached campaign.xml file and see if your campaign loads OK. Keep a copy of this handy, and if you get the error in future, don't manually edit any of the XML files, just copy this file back over.

    Are you just modifying data within FG or are you editing the XML directly?
