So basically nothing in Petz is working for me properly :c A ton of my horse files (the backups) were somehow corrupted/or aren't running in P4 and P5 will not display external textures on horses even though they are written in LNZ properly.
The thing is nothing has changed about this computer, my desktop has run as it always has, and I'm still running windows Vista as I've had on this computer since I bought it back in '09. The only thing that changed was the fact that I hadn't run petz for some time. Now 90% of my horses ran in P5, and I only started using P4 for horses within the past few years so I'm at a major loss. I've tried restoring the computer, reinstalling petz, nothing is fixing the issue. P4 was crashing with certain horses but I think I've fixed that, it's just hard because nearly all of my P4 horses are corrupted, and I'm struggling to find them in my email which has all my received petz files from '06-'15. Normal .cat and .dog files run normally on P4 so far, as well as V1 horses. For the time being I'll have to run everything on P4 until I can get a new laptop since mine is quite old and slow, or until I can figure out the issue on my desktop. But I'd appreciated good thoughts and any suggestion you may have. And if you have horses you've hexed me that are P4 please re-send them to me at email@example.com? ;n; I just wanna play with horses like c'mon computer what the hell.
^yep I've tried that as well. P5 will run the horse files but does not display external textures. P4 had issues running horse files in general which I think I've fixed. Idk how most of my backups became corrupted however.
I'm not sure how they would have corrupted, I've only had corruptions happen due to either a power outage/disconnection while the game was open. I think others may have had it happen if they were transferring files from a backup and it got corrupted in that process. If the place where you had your backup is like an hdd/usb, it may have corrupted if it has other items on it that you used and didn't properly disconnect the backup from a computer? I can't say much for how likely that is but that's just a thought, since I keep mine backed up via Dropbox.
The textures that will run in Petz 4 and Petz 5 differ because P5 accepts different sizes than P4. Try setting in the Compatibility to 'Run in 256 colors' to see if that helps at all? It might not but I figured I'd try to offer some suggestions.
