Backgrounds NOT WORKING properly—Dysfunctional and Inconsistent
Okay. So. Now that I've gotten everything figured out through Googling (and always ending up at pax-scene for the answers) and user guides, OPL is pretty freakin' sweet.
HOWEVER. One thing refuses to work, no matter which alternatives I use. The backgrounds. Oh my, the backgrounds. Mm hm. Well. I used to have them all as .png's. But then I started saving some as .jpg's. With both file formats, they sometimes refuse to show up. With jpg's, if they do show up, the image is sometimes distorted. But sometimes those same distorted images show up perfectly. It's seemingly very inconsistent. Now don't tell me I need to reduce the file size as I read in one thread on here because the .jpg I'm thinking of is 51 kb in size. Yes, it's 640x480, as all my other backgrounds. There are a few that seem to never have problems. If someone is not able to give me a definitive answer on the necessary attributes for bg images, I guess I'll have to look at the attributes for the ones that do always seem to show up properly.
I'm using internal HDD. I thought it might have been that the files were not completely/properly transferred to the HDD, but the same images are sometimes incomplete/distorted/don't show up or are perfectly fine. So I don't think it's an error in the copying & pasting—I think the issue is between OPL and the images.
All suggestions welcome. I really want to get this resolved—it's annoying to not know if the images I bothered downloading, resizing, and sometimes editing are even going to show up.
Thank you! :]
