oga83, I have another round of questions for you.
I am still tinkering with the Xavier mode in X-Men. The way the mode works is 1 of 23 characters are selected at random and the DMD displays an outline of this characters picture. When you hit the shot that is associated with this character...it reveals the characters picture and displays their name.
When these character pictures are exported with Pinball Browser they are in a square shape with white surrounding them. I tried to replace a file just like that, but when the mode started...instead of showing the outline of the new character it was just a square. When the character was revealed....it displayed correctly, but only after I had changed the white area surrounding her to a black one. Otherwise she was being displayed in a box.
I'm guessing this has something to do with the game using transparencies on the original character images in the game. I'm also guessing since all imported images are Raster-12 maybe they can not have these transparencies???
What is your theory on why it behaves this way or anyway to get around it?
After I did get the added character to come up in the game and did reveal her...I snapped a picture. It looks like it was meant to be there, but the fact that it displays the box instead of the outline before and also that Wolverine is now called Shadowcat in the entire game makes this little mod a no go. I'm still having fun tinkering.
