Newbie chick with a question~

Hey guys, I'm Jack, nice to internetz-meet you. :> Not quite new since I did a few things for a KoF Mugen project a while back before I had some personal issues pull me offline for a while. But! I'm back, and with a shiny new Win7 computer. Yaaaay. \o/

I'd like to toss some character art or intro logos at people's projects at some point, but what I really wanna do is palettes. I want to work on pals for the latest 1.0 RC7, but when I tried futzing around in Fighter Factory, the pals didn't work (the chara was all black -- looks like the colors weren't where they were supposed to be or something). Is pal making different now that there's a different Mugen out now? I did hear that this version deals with pals in a different way, but I have yet to find any new tutorials. Did a search on the forum and on Google just in case, but no luck so far.

Thanks in advance, guys~

First things first; are you doing this on an existing character? If so, which one?
If it's using the SFFv2 format, you're boned.
If not, could it be that the sprites haven't been indexed with a designated palette, or that the character has no ACT files?

Also, eww Fighter Factory. I use MEE for palettes. Way more efficient, in my opinion, and less to struggle with.
That's just me, though.

I was working with Zero-Sennin's 1.0-only Tifa edit, which does have 4 ACT files. I actually tried using MEE first, but apparently it doesn't work in Windows 7, even in compatibility mode. Which is a total bummer since I really liked MEE back in the day. I mean, way back when, I was able to make pals for YAMAKICHI's Tifa with MEE with no problems. So I'm not sure if this is a problem with FF, the new pal style, or what.

Yeah, got it from here, followed all directions and everything. Unless there's another site I should be going to?

I'm surprised that site still lives.
Got mines from RandomSelect.

I hit up Google for that one since the last time I was poking around at Mugen, RS was down. Man, I am hella out of the loop, LOL. I'll go get it from RS and see what happens. *thumbs up*

Update:
Okay, so the good news is, THIS version of MEE doesn't give me compatibility problems! The bad news (d'oh!) is that it keeps coming up with a pop-up of "TEMPSFF.TXT is taking a long time to appear; would you like to keep waiting?" Choosing Yes gets the same pop-up half a second later ad infinitum, and choosing No gets the one time pop-up of "An error occurred in the Toolbar ButtonClick routine with this description: ( 76) Path not found". This stuff happens regardless of where my Mugen is, where MEE is, where I'm pointing the directories at, etc. I've got totally different error messages for starting a new character, but I won't go into that since I'm not planning on making a new character anyway.

Well... at least it's not a compatibility problem anymore? \o/

Weird, I do get the TEMPSFF.TXT pop-up, but not a lot. When I press Yes, it may appear a second time, but then the character is properly loaded.

You have a strange case. Quite the troublemaker.

Wait... did you set up your directories before loading a character?

Yeah, directories were all set before I clicked anything else. I'm totally stumped as to what's going on, because as far as I can remember that pop-up only used to happen once for me too. Now it's just going on and on -- I mean, I've clicked that Yes button a good fifty times (actually counting) before giving up.

I may just do a fresh download AND fresh install just to make sure, but I don't think anything'll come of it. I'll try anyway though.

Thanks btw, even if I don't end up getting this working this is about the most help I've ever gotten for anything Mugen-related, haha. Cookie for you~

Welcome to mugen guild, and I must say you are very talented with the art. I enjoyed looking at your Ironman movie and other homages a whole lot.

Hit me up if you have any questions about proper paletting chars or sprites in general.
