    Any alternatives to a $190 Photoshop suite that anyone has had success using for transparency? Why would MDX not recognize another softwares .png?

    If you can send me some of these png files I might be able to find out. But I have no idea.

    If you dont need transparency, then bmp is the way to go anyways as it will be faster. (larger image size, but faster overall).

    Thanks for your help, I PM'd image. In that attempt all I did was paint over the "C (degrees)".

    Works fine for me.

    All I did was open the configurator, load the gtr example skin, go to edit graphics, double right click the oil temp static image, loaded the image you provided, saved it to mdx's directory, and ran mdx. Worked perfectly. No changes made.

    Worked in the Configurator:


    Worked in MDX:

    I can load the testmdx.png image you posted back as well. I assume you opened it with Photoshop when you renamed the file?

    No, I right clicked on the image from within FireFox, chose "Save Image As", and that's it. I did not use Photoshop at all except to save those screenshots.

    Also note post #4. The file you sent me was "*.PNG". When I saved as, I manually typed in "*.png".

    Try changing your extension. Always use lowercase extensions, programs that make uppercase extensions are evil...

    You were right, I was wrong. Thanks for your time and help.
