Creating small graphical mod, need help.

Postby bladerunner170 » Wed Jul 30, 2014 2:10 am

So, I've tried to edit some of the textures, notably the Sam, and air base. I've exported both as bmp files(24-but) However, when I try to launch a game, I get this error:

Abort: 'Error reading bitmap'

..\..\contributions\systemIV\lib\resource\bitmap.cpp

Hello, I am a bit late, but maybe you are still interestet in modding your Defcon.

I think the error you recieved when creating a new SAM graphic is caused by saving your bitmaps with RLE compression. RLE ( run-length encoding ) is a very common way to compress bitmaps, but Defcon can't handle it. So make sure your turn it off before saving your images.
