I just fired up Blades to indulge my nostalgia and realized that none of the custom graphics are functional. It's been a couple years (and two new computers) since I last played, and I have no recollection of how I dealt with this the last time.

I'm running Blades on an eMac with the latest version of Tiger installed. Can anybody point me towards a simple solution?

The custom graphics are in your Blades Scenarios folder, right. If not, move them there. If so, I don't know what to tell you.

Yep, and make sure you use the .meg file and have it named the same as the scenario file and have both files in the BLADSCEN folder.

And make sure that the identity of the custom graphics in the .meg file is 1, not 128. That's tripped me up a lot.

If you really can't get the graphics to work, try using a different decompression utility to expand the scenario .zip file -- some utilities, especially early versions of Stuffit Expander, can mangle resource forks.

If you transferred your Blades to your current computer somehow, that may have mungled it up a bit. If the original CD is still lying around somewhere, you may want to try just reinstalling it from there.
