Invalid data in texture?

Recommended Posts

I am testing the below image but GZDoom is spitting out something about invalid data in patch. I don't see what's wrong with it.



The file for download is found here, both the test WAD and raw BMP file.

Try to make it a .png. Then in SLADE3 convert the .png to a Doom format if you want. I'm not even sure if .bmp is even supported. SLADE3 never seemed to me to have options for .bmps.

SLADE, however, is perfectly happy to convert BMP to Doom's picture format; there is no need to go BMP->PNG->Doom Gfx when you can go BMP->Doom Gfx.

Or, for GZDoom, BMP->PNG and leave it this way.

SLADE doesn't have the option to convert/export to BMP because it doesn't seem like it'd be useful for any purpose. Everything supports PNG nowadays and these files are smaller, can preserve Doom-specific info like offsets, and are becoming somewhat of an accepted standard in the Doom community.

I want to make this image limit removing compatible, will changing it to PNG really work if I want to fire up with the WAD with PrBoom+ for example?

If you want to be safe, fall back to Doom Gfx.
