View Full Version : s3oc Problems

I am trying to clone a painting and am following Xan's tut... but when I replace my 128x128 png file to save as a thumbnail it says it saves, but when I reload the package file the thumbnail never shows.
Also, when I put it in my game I have two Goth paintings, but the one I modded just has the text changed.
I am using Gimp 2.6 with Compressor.(My Gimp dds plugin keeps telling me that I have to multipy by 4 or something? No clue what that means.) Much help with this would be appricated as I would love to share my stuff with everyone. Thanks!

Well the thumbnails are usually .png files, so I wonder if this misunderstanding is causing your problem?

It's in PNG format... the poster shows up in the game as a gothic painting, but when you put it on the wall it is the one I made. I dunno what I did wrong... but I'll try it again. :)

I don't think you did anything wrong. When I tried his tut, the same thing happened to me. But if I change the actual thumbnails in the game, it always shows up there.

@MacSen, did you remember to delete ObjectThumbnails.package file in your User Docs?

I have never had a problem with the correct thumbnail showing in game. Are you creating on a 128x128 transparent background?
Never had to delete the OBJ Thumbs for them to show correctly either.
I am also using Gimp 2.6. Perhaps if you show us the other error you are having "(My Gimp dds plugin keeps telling me that I have to multipy by 4 or something? No clue what that means.)" maybe someone will have an answer for you.

(My Gimp dds plugin keeps telling me that I have to multipy by 4 or something? No clue what that means.)
It just means that to save to DDS the image width and height must be multiples of four. (pixels)

Well I'm a bit confused why we're talkign about DDS plugins when the problem is with a png resource. That's where I'm stuck.
