Tag 'icon0' delete the tag
tag'i' and tag'if' Usually errors with quotation marks in the wrong place or extra quotation marks in the description tag.
Unable to load textures check your texture.txt files if there are any in the folder, if there are no texture.txt files the TGA files might have to be converted to texture files. Might pay to post the config.txt file here so someone can check it.

Cheers,

Tag 'icon0' in the container 'traincar' is obsolete.

TS2010 now does not complain about icon0 after Auran were unable to come up with an alternative.

Its important that when you reskin, you save the file in the exact same format as the original, otherwise it will turn out white in the game.

hope this helps,

Error: The asset specified in '0' is not of the correct type.
Error: The tag 'i' is not permitted within this container. (Container type 'traincar')
Error: The tag 'if' is not permitted within this container. (Container type 'traincar')

Error: Unable to load texture 'cementshutes.tga'.
Error: Unable to load texture 'cementshutes1.tga'.
Error: Unable to load texture 'upgray.tga'.

This is how I'd go about repairing this asset. These fixes may or may not work, but it's worth giving this a try.

1_Error: The asset specified in '0' is not of the correct type.

Ensure that your filename is the same as the asset.im file.

2_Error: The tag 'i' is not permitted within this container. (Container type 'traincar')
Error: The tag 'if' is not permitted within this container. (Container type 'traincar')

Read through the config.txt file. When the text is formatted to fit, it gets confused in the config file, and sometimes words are left out of the double quote marks. The " " thingies.

Simply delete these words from the config file, or the rest of the text that goes along with it. This will remove the problem. You might want to put your thank you into the License agreement area, which handles more text than the description.


3_Error: The texture 'main.tga' failed to load.

Does main.tga exist? If it does, you need to run PEV's PM2IM. This nifty utility will take any corrupted tga files and replace them with the ones referenced in the model. That is how I think it works. It works great and has saved many of my assets with this problem from ending up in the trash bin.

If the texture does not exist, remove the main.texture.txt file. This should repair the this error.

Same fix as above.

Error: Unable to load texture 'cementshutes.tga'.
Error: Unable to load texture 'cementshutes1.tga'.
Error: Unable to load texture 'upgray.tga'.

All-in-all, these repairs will take about 10 minutes on this model.

Hope this helps,

John

Hi conrail,

This is the bit that's giving bad tag errors.

i "will let people reskin this mesh only if they ask me first. Do not reskin without my given permission, please Feel free to email me or pm me at our site listed above,Thanks SP_OR_BUST."
if "you are in posession of these files and are using them in an illegal copy of Auran's Trainz, you are in violation of this EULA and as such, even without reading this file, have given full expressed permission for your local or national law enforcement agencies to sieze said computer equipment that may be used in the storage or distribution of these products for the express purpose of protecting these products' copyrights. This document is permission to sieze and detain any materials used for the illegitimate operation and/or distribution of these products."

the "exclusion of other articles of GNU international freeware copyright law is NOT an indication of inapplicability of those laws. NO OTHER STATEMENTS EXCLUDING AURAN EULA APPLY!"

Below is what it should be:-


eula "i will let people reskin this mesh only if they ask me first. Do not reskin without my given permission, please Feel free to email me or pm me at our site listed above,Thanks SP_OR_BUST. if you are in posession of these files and are using them in an illegal copy of Auran's Trainz, you are in violation of this EULA and as such, even without reading this file, have given full expressed permission for your local or national law enforcement agencies to sieze said computer equipment that may be used in the storage or distribution of these products for the express purpose of protecting these products' copyrights.

NO OTHER STATEMENTS EXCLUDING AURAN EULA APPLY!"

Notice the tag is now eula and there is only one opening quotation mark and one closing quotation mark. I will let someone else sort out your graphics problems as I am not an expert in that field. I also notice there are two organisation tags, not sure if that will throw up an error.

Cheers,

Yes, sorry I was dreaming. The tag should be description.
I was in the middle of setting up my new 'puter and didn't think properly.
