After looking around for a bit I decided to try hexing the horse file I downloaded. At first I was confused 'cause I was trying to open the regular file, then I found out I needed to use the Petz Workshop File. This is still sayings its corrupt. Any help? EDIT: Turns out every breedfile is "corrupted". They work fine in the game though. Help? D:
What file are you hexing from? I can't speak for any files apart from the Manda V2 because that's all I hex from.
Are you using the PW dummy file? The Manda V2 has a PW dummy file that you use first. You colour that and add paintballs, then copy the relevant code over into the actual file. This means that you don't actually open the actual file in PW at all (or you only open it for small things. I use it to recolour any new addballs, and change eye/eyelid colour).
The V2 also can "corrupt" if you open it in PW and move it to a certain place. Looking at the tutorial I linked to, though, it seems that they both use a PW dummy that you then copy the code from. Which makes sense tbh - I just hadn't hexed a V1 in so long that I forgot XD
You can also scale down the actual files to make moving around them in PW easier, but for the most part, hexing on the PW Dummies is easiest when you're first starting out.
PW also tends to crash when you open a file if it's the original v1 or v2 files because the head/neck extends past the frame in a way that makes PW unable to process it. When it crashes like that I scroll out as far as I can and click and drag my mouse so that when I reload the file it's facing the horse from the side instead of top-down.
I scale down the dummies too, I have everything set to 75/75 to make it easier to see everything at once As far as recolors go I click on the ballz I want to recolor on the right hand side ' ballz' panel and click apply to ball and it'll recolor them all at once
