Hi, I was testing my GM and while GTA was still running I tried to compile my script (was planning to use /gmx ingame, ich works all the time), then it said something with stream error or something, so I closed pawn, whitout saving the latest changes because I didn't make so many changes..., but the next time I open up my GM in pawn, it vanished... all the lines are gone, I have got a backup but it's not that up-to-date, please help!

Umm.. yeah there's nothing to do about that...
This happened to me also... But I did REMADE everything I lost from the script, I suggest you to do it too

But, I did not compile the script before it vanished, is there any way that I can convert my amx to pwn?

May I ask, what is your operating system?

Well truthfully it's gone. You can try a de-amx'er but guess what? Those things are a waste of time. It's better to just rescript everything. Good luck.

you can also search through your docs and settings for any temp.pwn file.
and: try any file-recovery program, and try to resolve as many files as you can. maybe theres 1 recently saved version aswell (if you saved it with a different name?) - GL!

Failing to back up is your own fault, and nothing can be done.

I think it's good advice - If you'd have backed up your script this topic wouldn't exist.
