Sapien has been giving me some trouble recently. I haven't used the editing kit in months (classes come first) and now that finals are nearly over I've decided to pickup on some of the levels I've had on the back burner.
open and operate normally, if
I open a stock map. The problem comes from opening a custom map. It will
open and display the game window, but if I click +Mission under the Hierarchy view tab it immediately shuts down. This means I cannot add any other tags to the level, be them scenery, weapons, or netgame flags. Here is the debug:

Note: I am using OS_sapienbeta but the issue also occurs in regular Sapien.
The only info about this error that I could find is this:

I found a bug, and a solution! Not that anyone will ever need it, but...
Importing an exported scenario.txt crashed guerilla, with an "EXCEPTION halt in \halopc\haloce\source\tag_files\tag_groups.c,#2419: group_tag==NONE || tag_group_get(group_tag)"
I found that it crashed when it read a netgame flag with a "wpcl" weapon group tag reference from bloodgulch's red flag. Changing "wpcl" to "itmc" fixes it.

but I have no idea how to use this information to help me.
The only thing I can think of is that I switched a projectile on a weapon, however upon receiving the error I switched it back; yet the error still comes up. I checked and all the tag locations are correct (no red text in any fields). The level already has some tags I added to it from before and I can build-cache-file the level into a map file, but I cannot add anything else.
Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
