Default Problem with making Netricsa Messages.

Everything works fine, when I try to read it without changing the picture nettie is suppose to display, but when I do, the game crashes. I can change the title and the message without any problems. (I copy paste the directory of the .tex file to change the pic.) What am I doing wrong?

Default Re: Problem with making Netricsa Messages.

Here's a default layout of a NETRICSA text file:

Message subject
TFNM Path\To\Texture.tex

Below a newline under TEXT should be the text of the message the player should receive.
Note that TFNM (Texture For New Message?) is required before writing the file path. Use backslashes in the path and don't start the path with a backslash. Make sure the .tex file actually exists at said location, and the start of the texture path is the install dir.

If that doesn't work try posting the content of the txt file here, and maybe the last part of SeriousEditor.log in the install dir.

Offtopic but still worth mentioning;

TFNM = Texture Filename, and is used to automatically detect dependencies for files - eg. you can give it any file and it looks for every filename that is prefixed by "DFNM", "TFNM", and "EFNM" and report it as a dependency. This is also used by RevPacker to automatically find dependencies that will be necessary to add in the gro file.
