(I wrote this once in the skinners place but doesnt seem like anyone is around in that forum so i tried this one)



Alright i took a pilot skin and edited the face so it had a different face...and when i save it back in the folder and play the game, the file isnt there anymore, it like skips over the number...for example if i edited the pilot image that was Hu_11.bmp , when i go to play the game and choose pilot skin it goes .... Hu_10.bmp and then skips to Hu-12.bmp, and i checked the bottom of the list and went through the entire list one by one and could not find where it is...what do i do?!

Do a file search on your PC for the edited .bmp. Maybe the program is doing a "Save As" and either changing the file type or putting it somewhere else, like your documents folder or something.

make sure you save it in 256 bit colours not 16 million

Assuming your saving the file in the correct directory, what you are describing is what happens when you have an incorrect file type. The file must be saved correctly or it won't show up on the list. It is very likely your graphics program is saving the file as the wrong type. Please forgive me as I can't say the exact right type of file to be saved, but if I had to guess I believe it is 256 color indexed .bmp.

Must be 256x256 pixels, 8 bit depth .bmp format.

Try putting a A_ in front of the name so it shows up at the beginning of the list (a_mypilot, a_superman, etc.).

sounds like you saved it in the wrong format, try to save it on "posted above" if that doesnt work for you you can send the photo to resdawgz@aol.com and I will change it for you as soon as I get the email. Hope you get it working
