A strong "last sttraw" - Heroic open

If there is a file open, you can open another "corrupted" file by using Heroic open (ESC o H). I have discovered a very very useful function of this command: open a file which is to high a level for the current FM.

I currently have severe problems with FM-16.0.0.754: as soon as the file explorer becomes involved, FM quits without further notice (no message, no dump, no sound, no grunt…). See bug FRMAKER-9277.

Hence I could not save my work done in FM-16 to the lower level to continue with FM-15.

But then...

I opened the FM-16 file in my text editor and changed the <MakerFile 16.0> at the very beginning of the file to <MakerFile 15.0>. Of course this violates the checksum - hence the file is considered corrupted.

But alas; it can be opened in FM-15 with Heroic Open!

Good save the Queen! - or better: the programmer who had programmed this feature!

Klaus,
Thanks for the report. Heroic Open hasn't been discussed in a while, and I'm glad to hear the feature is evidently being maintained.

It's not exactly well documented, so I expected there are cases where it won't work.
