Hi thanks for the report. The issue is being investigated!


When you first load the place up in studio, if you go to the output window and ctrl+f for rbxassetid://rbxassetid:// to see if that matches anything? We’ve seen an error recently where Sound instances that contain an improperly-formatted asset id like that can cause saves to fail in this way.

If there is a match, you’ll need to look through all the Sound instances in your experience to find which is the problem and change the asset id to only say rbxassetid:// once instead of twice, you can do this more easily if you type Sound in the filter box at the top of the explorer.

If that is not the cause let us know and we can dig into this deeper.
