"You can't submit deleted creations to a jam"
I am getting this error when attempting to submit to the latest jam. My creation: "Security Footage - A02 - Abandoned BRC Site" is not deleted, nor is anything linked to it. It's public and it seems to be playing fine for myself and others. I'm not sure why I'm getting the error. I was having issues releasing the creation, so it may be tied to my attempted troubleshooting with that issue where I deleted previous versions of saves. However, being able to release it makes me think there must be a bug, either in the jam submission and/or attached to my creation somehow. If it is playable, I assume it should be submittable.
I’m glad you managed to release the creation after deleting the remixes.
It’s a strange case that i’ve not seen before but i’ve informed the team so they are aware of it.
If you do happen to have this occur again could you let us know please?
Many thanks for your input,
I managed to release the creation and all the attached creations.
I wasn't able to narrow down the exact release issue, but I have no problem releasing things anymore, as I saved a new copy of the creation I was trying to submit and re-released it without issue. Both play fine, but have the same error message when I try to submit them to the jam. I just thought that restoring the cloud save from before the creation may have caused it to think the creation was deleted. So far no more release issues, just the jam submission errors. I submitted a couple other random creations just to test it and they all worked, it seems to be just the one creation that I can tell, and the copy of it.
I feel like this was partly my own fault, I didn't even realize how poorly I was managing my creations until I tried to release this. I've been working on something with a lot of assets, and creating nearly everything from remixes, not realizing the creations link together the way they do. So when I released it, it also wanted me to release the hundred or so other creations attached. At first it failed to release. I assumed the issue was that it was attempting to release too much at once, so I tried releasing creations individually, but of course all the creations being linked I had the same issue with each one. I had a save from the morning backed up in the cloud so I started deleting old versions of all my creations hoping that would do the trick. Eventually, after clearing a lot, it let me release the creation, but along the way I accidentally deleted a version of something that I needed so I restored my save. Which was from a time before I released or even made the creation. I'm thinking that's where I messed up on my end. (I promise I'm practicing keeping my creations more organized from now on lol) Thanks guys, hope this all helps.
Edit: I also tried saving a new copy and releasing that one with the same error.
