Found a bug in a 9.r beta? Let us know here, so we can fix it.
1. Please post only ONE bug per THREAD. If you have multiple bugs to report, create a thread FOR EACH BUG.
2. Please NAME your THREADS as DESCRIPTIVELY as possible.
3. Please DO NOT CREATE report threads for bugs which have already been reported. This produces REDUNDANT BUG REPORTS, which slows down development by making it harder for me to read, reports and fix the bugs mentioned within them. This also applies for bugs which have been fixed and moved accordingly, so CHECK the FIXED BUGS subforum BEFORE POSTING. Previously-submitted bug reports can be found here: viewforum.php?f=174
That only happens for paints which don't have (working) effects yet, which is basically a fancy way of saying paints that do that are NYI. It would be helpful if you could provide images of the paints which do that (the icons, not the way they appear on the actual creature)
EDIT: Also they may only work on the highest graphics settings - IIRC I forgot to copy the particles to the medium and low folders.
I agree that the no-magma-texture sucks, but I deal with it by giving my creatures a magma-like texture (lots of bright orange and yellow works! on a base of ashy black, it's very convincing) Also, I think I know what OP is speaking of and I'll send screencaps when I'm home.
I used to make dragons, but now I make just about everything. Huge thanks to rob55rod and CamBen for their hard work on their part mods, which make my pastime a lot more interesting.
