Custom graphics foul up?? in Blades of Exile

Hiya! I am having a bit of trouble getting a custom talking graphic to work correctly, and would appreciate some assistance. Please bear w/ me, b/c I am a complete newb w/ custom graphics. u_u;

I have gotten everything except for my talking graphic to work correctly: terrain, monsters, animated terrain.

This is the talking graphic I am using (zoomed in): IMAGE(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n223/XCheeseIsGodX/Utility/correct.jpg)

When I test the scenario to verify the graphics are working correctly, that same talking graphic shows up like this (also zoomed in): IMAGE(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n223/XCheeseIsGodX/Utility/wrong.jpg)

This is what I am entering into the BoE editor: IMAGE(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n223/XCheeseIsGodX/Utility/attempt.jpg)

I did notice, however, that when I return to that same monster, the graphic number changes to this: IMAGE(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n223/XCheeseIsGodX/Utility/itsmockingme.jpg)

Yeah, I added the "MOCKERY!" in there when I was getting frustrated... is it normal for the program to automatically change the talking pic number like that? No matter what 1000+ number I enter, it always reverts to 240, 242, some random 240 number. It's mocking me! Please help! =(

I still play, but haven't released any scenarios of my own... some of the scenarios I've played from others were kinda sucky, imo, and there are a few that were great. I was working on my own scen., but it corrupted completely, my monitor melted into a synthesized goo, my computer exploded, and my cat caught on fire. Heh, I'm exaggerating... but after all that work, it sure felt like it >_>

"Frida" by Barbara Mujica... an interesting fiction about Frida Kahlo. I don't know how to put it better... fictional character study??? I'm reading it like crazy at work! But I wouldn't reccomend it to the easily offended or to the kids, lol!

The book has gotten me back to painting after a short addiction to gaming. >_>

Fallout 1 & 2, because there are so few post-apocalyptic RPG's out there that are good!!!! I'm a dialog freak, so I'm all over this kind of stuff... I also like Planescape: Torment for the unusual plot, characters, and crazy awesome dialog, but it gets pretty tough at the end.

Well you guys, thank you for all of your help... I gave it my best shot, but I am going to have to just redo this entirely from scratch. I think it did corrupt from nothing, to tell you the truth.

ARGGH!! *bang head against wall :mad:

I've had to open the corrupt scenario as a notepad file to salvage some of the text... this time, I am going to copy and paste a back up file! >_>

I'm going to do my best to get to califur '08... and I'm going to costume... the theme is steampunk, help me out here only two things required, big boots, and weilding goggles :3 I'm also thinking about round frame glasses.
I have a few ideas. I also found some places online to buy Victorian-era submariner goggles.
From what I've seen, your boots don't have to be ginormous. A few touch ups do regular combat boots good!
If you take desert combat boots, you can sponge on brown paint to give them a dirty, "worn" look for starters. If you choose black boots, you can sponge them over with rust-colored paint for an old rusty look.
I suggest buying gears from an automotive shop and working them into your costume. From what I've seen, gears can go as low as a few dollars. You can also get gears from clock stores (I like those better, but my opinion). Hmm, I were to imagine that if you were to work gears and cables into your design, you'd srsly pwn.

It's optional, but an anguistralobe would also look very nice. Perhaps, make a charm necklace w/ an anguistralobe, compass, pocket watch, dog tags, and a cameo? (dog tags have existed since the 1800's, I was doubtful but I looked it up).

I'm hoping that your file didn't somehow get corrupted during the save. It is rare, but indeed possible if things don't get written properly.
I'm gonna cry. ;_;
I am not sure what happened. I wasn't even messing with special nodes, just working on character dialog. I do not know what I could have possibly done in a dialog screen to mess anything up. It's like typing in MS Notepad, and then Windows crashes and the comp. explodes. >_>

How many scenarios have you played? 6 (haven't been out much!)
Absolute favorite BoE scenario? A Small Rebellion
When did you get the registered version of BoE for the first time? Holy cow. I think it was 7 years ago!
What is the first third-party scenario you played? The Valley of Dying Things, of course!
Favorite all-around scenario designer? Mr. Jeff Vogel
Out of your own scenarios, which do you feel is your best? None of them. They keep having errors and messing up ;_;
What is your favorite scenario icon? IMAGE(http://i113.photobucket.com/albums/n223/XCheeseIsGodX/Games/favescenpic.jpg)
If you could make one BoE scenario into a movie, which scenario would it be? I am not sure, but A Mild Rebellion would make a nice action movie.
What is your favorite spell? FIRESTORM! BAHAHAHAHHAA! XD
What is your favorite item of all time? (It doesn't matter how many scenarios have the item in it. Can be one, can be all.) I don't remember, but it pwned. Totally pwned.
Have you ever named a place or character in a scenario after someone you know in real life? Yes: my cat Hunter!
What do you think is the absolute most overrated BoE scenario of all time? Dunno!
What do you think is the absolute most underrated BoE scenario of all time? Not sure! o_O
If you could fix one bug in BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be? The one that's giving me hell right now >_>
If you could add one new feature to BoE or the scenario editor, what would it be? More streamlined special node editors, a little like RPGMaker 2k6.
What is your least favorite scenario out of those rated 7.0 or higher on CSR? I dunno! =D
Which scenario do you think is the worst ever? There's lots of horribles, but only one can be the absolute worst. Za Khazi Run >_<
Write down the release dates of all of your scenarios. If you can't remember all of them, do the ones that you can. Never released any. I basically played the 3 scenarios, started a bunch of custom ones, and never finished them. The one I am working on is simple, and I have a solid plan for it, but I got bombed by an error ;_;
What is your favorite TM scenario? Huh?
What is your favorite Creator scenario? Eh???
What is your favorite scenario in the Spheres trilogy? Wah????
What is your favorite scenario in the Adventurer's Club trilogy? Meh????? o_O;;

What is your favorite BoE fansite? Have yet to visit any!
What do you think would happen if Alcritas returned to the Lyceum as an active member once more? Who?
What scenario do you think should have won the first design contest? ;_; I dunno...
Name one random scenario that has not been mentioned by anyone in this thread (first that comes in your head.) Asuipthpnerunh.
If TM returned, and he and Kel continued to argue, do you think that should continue, or do you think they just have to duke it out? Wha???[/QB]

Omfg. I suck. u_u;;;

The responses I get are very strange. When they see Exile / Avernum, my friends are like, "OMFG THOSE GRAPHIX SUXXORZ!" But when I show them ADOM, they immediately turn around and go, "BAHAHAHAH I LV1 AND I WAS TOTALLY PWNED BY THAT STONE GUARDIAN!"

And then my fiance thinks the scenarios don't have enough story-depth and role-play. Go figure. o_O

I'd like to see a Victorian-Lovecraftian RPG. Perhaps like a dark mystery! That would be totally awesome. I've been playing way too many point-n-click games lol

After reading the third book in the "Magic Kingdom for Sale" series, I picked up an old classic: "Treasure Island". I am reading that at the same time I am reading some short stories and poetry from a college literature book someone ditched. There's some awesome stuff in there, I have no clue why they ditched it... BUT IT'S MINE NOW!!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

I've played D&D, Shadowrun, White Wolf, Rifts, Star Wars RPG, and Marvel RPG.

So far, my 3 favorites are D&D, White Wolf, and Marvel RPG.

The typical hack-n-slash bores me to tears. But my gaming group is very strange. If one of the members of our group DM/GM/ST's anything, the objective is accomplished scooby-doo style: mission accomplished, and turned completely inside out. It's freakin' awesome!!!

We had a Forgotten Realms mission where the party was supposed to sneak past a drow encampment to safety. Simple enough, yes? Well, the wizard was abducted, the rogue and the retarded half-orc barbarian (me XD) were captured - and subsequently broke out b/c said barbarian was hungry. The whole encampment was flung into utter chaos b/c of the captured wizard, the escapees trying to wrestle with and ride a giant lizard, and the rest of the party tried to attack some confused drow soldiers XD (and my barbarian ended up slapping the rogue with a fish, and was immediately attacked by a kuo-toa). WE ONLY TRIED TO SNEAK PAST A CAMP. lol

I was also in a Mage chronicle where we tried to assist a Euthanatos mage in recapturing a magic mirror from Tremere vampires. What eventually happened? Half the cabal was embraced, one of the PC's was drained dry, half the police in the city swarmed the mansion the PC's were living in while my PC climbed down a trellis topless - being chased by a madman of course - and we burned down the whole mansion. By accident. AND WE ONLY TRIED TO GET A FREAKING MIRROR. lmao!

Even really simple, tried-and-overtried scenarios turn awry. We were supposed to break into a chamber of kobolds and rescue a friend. Somehow, SOMEHOW, we ended up having the kobolds worship as after a mishapped light spell made one of the PC's glow like a god. He threw an orb at the kobold queen to disorient her, and she exploded into a GIANT TREE. WTF, lol

Every time I try to open a custom scenario of mine, a prompt appears that says:

"BLADES caused a General Protection Fault in module BLSCENED.EXE at 0003:848F.

Choose close. Blades will close."

I don't know what went wrong. The last thing I did, I was typing some dialog for a character. Then I save. A few seconds passed after I saved, and I was about to load another town when that prompt interrupted me and crashed the program. Everytime I try to load my scenario, it crashes again. Please tell me I didn't lose all of that hard work! ;_;

What can I do to fix this?
