Crash. Crash. Crash.

Dear Musescore,
One of my scores that I created in Musescore 1.1 crashes every time I open it in the latest Musescore. I put a ton of effort creating this score in 1.1. Now, I cannot present it to my band at rehearsal. Is there a fix I can effect other than playing it on 1.1?

Well, the score is corrupt and MuseScore 2 and 3 report this (MuseScore 1 didn't check for those, so didn't reporte). You need to fix those corruptions.
MuseScore 3(.2.3) crashes once I ignore those corruuptions, after 2 minutes, i.e. on autosave, and also on save, but not on load (MuseScore 2 'survives' either apparently).
This probably is because the parts are corrupt too, delete them, fix the corruption in the main score, re-generate the parts. This is something you'd want to do anyhow, to benefit from the parts being linked to the main score (a feature as of MuseScore 2)

Attached the score with removed parts and saved with 3.2.3, but still having corruptions.
See on how to fix those

Culprit for the corruptions are most probaly some of the many triplets in that score.

Dear Jojo,
Thank you for your analysis. The fix sounds rather arduous. If that score was a brand new one that I need to work on, I'd make the fixes you suggest. I was wondering if it is possible to play that particular score and any others corrupt score using Musescore 1.1 on my computer and any scores created on 1.1 that are not corrupt with Musescore 3.2.3 on the same computer.
In Him,

It is possible to play that score, but due to the corruptions you'd need to remove the parts and can't regenerate them prior to fixing the corruptions
Or indeed using MuseScore 1 on it (but better update to 1.3).
Even Musescore 2(.3.2) seems possible BTW.
