Default The Art Bug

Some of you have reported to me (several times in private) that sometimes when you pick up an "alien art object", it displays "image not found".

Being a clever game designer, I told you that was a peculiar trend that swept the alien art world several centuries ago, and it was actually quite valuable. (it's not a bug, it's a feature!)

Of course you knew I was full of it.

But today, as I was adding some new art objects, I finally found what was happening. I did a batch re-name of the files to see if that would help, and I ended up getting a few with the exact same name.

Which I knew was impossible... so I undid it and hoped there were no gremlins in my system.

5 minutes later, it occurred to : maybe the files are the wrong TYPE! AI only loads .png files ... so I sifted thru them, and there it was! 4 of the files were jpegs!

Problem solved.
Now on to more pressing matters...
