So I'm Having Issues with Compiling a Model.

A Forum Thread for Sven Co-op

So I'm trying to compile a playermodel for this game, and I keep getting an error that reads as such
error -4 reading BMP image "./mouth.bmp"
Is there any means of fixing this?

  • Error -4 means your texture's image mode is not set to indexed.

    In order to fix it open the image in either GIMP or Photoshop and from the menu head to Image>Mode>Indexed

    Keep in mind that if you want to edit the image you'll be limited by indexed mode. Any brush type tool will leave sharp edges and attempting to introduce new colors to the layer won't give you the right hues. Nearly all adjustment options in PS will be grayed out too.

    tl;dr if you plan to edit the image set indexed mode last
