Basically all I did was re-texture the coalition head(A copy that is). Now I get this error for some odd reason telling me it can't find it or it isn't path'd right owo

Conversation between Asklar and I. (Start from the bottom) I've also included my file. Hopefully someone can shed some light and help a newbie out.

"That shouldn't be a problem though... I'm not sure what's not working. That's the kind of error that happens when CC isn't able to read the file in the specified location, or there isn't a file in the location, but none of both seem to be it.

Why don't you ask in the forums? I'm quite bad at debugging .ini anyway, haven't done it in so long.

Okay, well. this started after I finished the head in Gimp.

I went to export it and then change it to bmp. Perhaps I messed up there? :o

This is so weird. I can't fix it, not sure what it might be. Since when the error began appearing?

It seems that you don't have the head in the path listed in the error, or you do have it listed but with another name. Remember that it matches caps when looking up for sprites. Also, you can upload things without compressing them on this forum.

I actually sat down and read through it, I got the hang of Gimp now :) Thank you.

I did everything and now I get this.

I don't know enough about Gimp, but I basically opened the image, changed the palette and saved out through photoshop and it worked fine.

Maybe someone who knows more about gimp could shed some light on what you should be doing to save files properly. The palette you saved with was correct at least.

Are you saving directly to an 8-bit BMP or are you saving as like png and just changing the extension?

That's be really awesome if you could do that for me. I'm clueless at the moment. Perhaps I didn't do the palette right? .-.

Yeah, me either :E

Basically what I did after I finished the head. It did one of two things to see if either work'd.

1. I saved it as the XCF.

2. I exported it as a bmp.

I'm very new to modding CC and I've only just gotten down the basics. So I can assume that I did something I wasn't suppose to do and it didn't like that too much.

Okay, when you're exporting as Windows BMP Image, check "Do not write color space information" under Compatibility Options.
