Thread: missing images

    missing images

    Anyone else ever have the annoying problem that scenes files do not remember where to access preset texture images? Regardless of where my files are saved or where the content directory is, I always have to load the preset images seperately. Is there a bad path embedded in the surface files somewhere? Any ideas?

    If you are using your Content Directory correctly the problem should never arise. If you use images from outside the Content Directory path you have set, then you will always get trouble when using images...

    When you say "preset images" I imagine you mean the images that came with LW, the ones that are in the LW content folder, maybe reflection maps.

    Copy the ones you are using into the Images folder within the content directory for the job, and they will be accessed properly.
