Now that I'm finally restarting work on this mission, how do you import it? It's currently just leaving the texture as the default.

Via the texture edit control? I still have the texture and will try it to see whether I will have to fix something there. ;)

I popped a bug report on the paint dialog on the tracker as well. For some reason simply painting something caused it to crash... it's not a big deal since no-one in their right mind is going to want to use it anyway, but if someone clicks there by mistake it could be annoying.

Another thing: If it's working on your end, what texture are you replacing? I'm trying to overwrite metl053.

Yeah, different problem in my case. Most textures should be working fine (I think? I haven't tried to load any more smaller textures in since earlier this year). I don't see a crash, either, it just doesn't change anything. It got fixed earlier, so my thinking is I have something set up wrong.

Ben's problem was of different nature: His texture just was too huge for DLE-XP to process it. I had fixed that, but after that had made the complete code overhaul of DLE-XP, so there might something be fishy again in this area.


you need to select the proper file type in the file open dialog box to see tga textures.

Yeah, I can see it in the directory with the import dialog. I'll just grab the latest update and check again.

Edit: Indeed, it'll load other (one-frame) TGAs just fine, but the 32-frame one hasn't loaded yet.

Edit 2: I cut it down to one frame, and the same problem is there. So, I don't think this has anything to do with file size.

Edit 3: It loaded fine when I cut the numbers and spaces from the name.

Edit 4: It didn't save with the level though. A 4-frame version did, but it didn't animate in-game; it was stuck on the first frame.

Bumping this old thread. I seem to have the same problem. Try to load a *.tga and nothing at all happens. I once achieved to do it by re-saving them to 24/32 bit TGA uncompressed. But now I cannot again, even that way. (original or re-saved)* It looks an old problem and dunno if it has been solved since, that's why I am posting here first. It could be that I am missing something or doing something stupid.

P.S.: Also, point of interest: in every location I try to load custom textures, DLE pastes a dle-xp.ini. So I have copies of dle-xp.ini s wherever I visited with DLE-XP, to load textures for example.

*it's the D3 textures you gave me karx

EDIT: Found the problem. DLE-XP cannot handle/read/load textures with a long file path string. If your *.tga is too deep in your FS, DLE-XP will simply do nothing instead when loading with the texture editor. Posting on bug-tracker now.

Maximum path lengths are really fun like that. They introduce subtle bugs that nobody thinks to look for...
