Well, 75, I was curious, can you load raw data for a texture? (I.E. have a png texture) I've tried, but they always either do not come up, or come up black.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

Try using Slade 3, I've never had any problems with loading pngs.

http://slade.mancubus.net/

If it doesn't work try installing the Visual C++ 2010 runtimes

If you don't want to use Slade 3, try SlumpED. I forgot how to use XWE long ago.

Ah, probably an XWE problem then. Its fine, the images are fairly close to the Chex palette, I can just remap 'em.

Oh, btw, I made some new patches. Their bases off of the force field switches I found in your latest alpha :P I'll show 'em to you when I have the set a little more complete.

...

I tried Slade, and well, its pissing me off. Its image handling parts are bugging out, and when I finally got the images imported and the patches working, they wouldn't show up in the menu to add them to a texture.
Shh!  I'm taking a break from reality.

I used Slumped for PNGs.

*XWE

and did you use those pngs for sprites or for textures? XWE will load em in alright, but it won't allow you to use them with textures.

You can tell it's been a while since I last modded when I forget the spelling of my main editor. XD

They were the textures for the Whaleware Room in the lounge.

Did you place it between PP_START and PP_END, and then "save as patch"?

Huh, forgot about that tutorial. Lemme check...

EDIT: Nope, that's when it shows up black. Although, I did that with non-chex-pallete bitmaps, I haven't tried pngs yet. I'll try tomorrow and let ya know.

I don't know if XWE has a required format. I always uploaded BMP in XWE, and PNG in Slumped. JPG should work just as well, but I dunno about GIF or anything.

png and bmp work in XWE, I don't know about those others. I prefer png or bitmap anyways, seeing as JPG doesn't have transparency (at least, when I use it >_>)

Well, tried them pngs in XWE. Works flawlessly.

So, I don't know what it was, but I was apparently doing something wrong before. Got em working though :D
