I recently downloaded pck utility and made custom files fine, and imported them in! In the utility it showed fine too but in the game it comes up witha big black box around the image and the images colors are skrewd too! I tried using a pallette copied from some pictures already used in teh game but i presume u need a different pallette to shoiw in game?

Could anyone help me on this pleaseeeeeeee! THnx!

Oh, and is there a better editor available which includes ALL graphics, perhaps an editor that does everthing? But not the cruddy save game ones! Cheers!

Only editors I know of that can edit graphics are Xed and PCK manipulator. Find them both here : http://www.dwcs.net/xcom3/index.html

But I can't tell you what's wrong with it. Normally colors of pictures already used in the game should work fine...Which files have you tried to replace?

XeD gives a runtime error as soon as you move the mouse. But I can't help you with image editing tho. sorry...

I use photoshop to edit my PCX files. :D

Edit: Works every time, well, except for that one time...

I'm only partially inactive. :P I can still be reached at cpl.facehugger@gmail.com, and via PM. Preferably the former.

This is an ancient thread, but I can't find anything about it anywhere except here.

Has anyone else had trouble putting new soldier pics in Apoc?

I used Xed and the Xed face tutorial... grayscaled the pics then applied the palette as instructed.

Instead of black & white photos, I get purple and magenta (in game).

Tried it with just the grayscale, and got something you only see when listening to Hendrix and doing the same drugs he did.

Grayscale shoudn't have color right?

What could I possibly be doing wrong?
