View Full Version : Um what? Leopard Upgrade...oops. Anyone else?
November 7th, 2007, 04:39 AM
Okay, I've had two issues since upgrading to leopard (OS X 10.5) one is the inability to log on to my home wireless connection, the other is that all my banner images seem to have disappeared in the Weird worlds game. THey appear for everyone else's mods, just not for any mod that has been made on my computer. Anyone else upgrade and see my mod banners vanish? I really have no clue what the hell could do that. I checked the format and everything else, and it seemed fine. My files are even smaller than most.

I get the impression from your post that WW plays OK on Leopard. It's the banner images from you mod that don't show. Is that right?
I've got the 10.5 disks on my desk. But am holding off until all my production apps work. WW would be a definite bonus if it's 10.5 compatible.

I don't have either problem since upgrading to Leopard. I did have some problems with WW not running but I fixed it with:
update_prebinding -force -root /
and then rebooting.
Check your console logs for messages like:
com.apple.launchd (com.apple.dyld) Throttling respawn: Will start in 59 seconds
If you see those then you might have the same problem.

Actually the banner images for Even Weirder Worlds, have always been intermittently missing on my 10.4.10 system (they are almost always not visible, but occasionally are).
Perhaps it is a problem with the palette?

Yeah, it is merely the banner images that are giving me fits. I don't have a lot of time to look into it now, but if nobody else is having a problem, I'm okay dealing with it for now.

Have you checked that your pallette is correct? I remember something in the modmaker's guide saying banners need a specific pallette of colors to display.
If that's the problem, you can solve it by duplicating the banner file from the main game, then pasting your image into it.

If the palette is wrong, you'll just get wrong colors in the menu. If the image is not loading at all, the problem must have something to do with the file format. You must save your .bmp images in uncompressed 8-bit. (This also means all banners should be identical 29160 bytes in file size)
