    in the moduledb folder will be an XML file for every module that you have modified. Within there, you will find a link to the old JPG file that has been renamed to a webp version. If you restore that file to your moduledb folder from your backup, you can edit that and it should restore your efforts.

    Our intention is not to change maps or tokens for this reason because it breaks in progress campaigns and requires them to be reverted or the moduledb xml files to be edited. We are also investigating some method where an image will look for a webp version if the jpg or png version is not found.

    opened moduledb folder from current updated and pre updated back ups / found DD Dungeon of the Mad Mage HTML (xml) file / replaced updated version with pre update version

    Edit the xml file in notepad++.

    Look for the map name and change the extension for the filename in the xml from .jpg to .webp. Then reload the campaign and you should see the map image instead of the grey box, along with whatever else you added to the map.

    back into folders, opened with notepad, Find / Replace - all worked for Level 3 (My test) Now just 12 more levels to fix. *L*
    Thank you for the help.

    Sorry for the trouble. Glad the fix is working for you.

    In my case I had to edit the base db.xml file in the campaign folder for the fixes to take effect. That could be because I didn't keep the original WotC module installed after I had extracted the maps I needed. I had thought that I was saving time by repurposing some existing maps for my current campaign rather than creating new ones. I'm just glad that this change doesn't affect the thousands of maps I've created from images found online.

    I do that too, grab art maps from online and bring them into the game, I put the DM image on the same file as a layer only I see for labels and such, and the FGU players map for the premade FGU walls. So when this happened all 13 currently prepped maps went wonky.

    You can use the Find and Replace function in Notepad++ to help speed it up.

    You guys replaced chapter jpg images with webp files? Why? (don't bother answering that)
