On my end I removed the empty func wall but got the same parsing error.
But to add to the mystery. For yucks I copied all of the wal and tga that Margaal was kind enough to make for me but were giving me the parsing brush error. I pasted them into a folder I made a few years back of other wals I had previous converted images. I selected a couple textures from that old folder from the ones Margaal made and they worked, compiled with no problem.
Yet all of the property settings are the same in both folders, and under the same dday texture folder. Very strange. One folder works, one doesn't, but appear the same.
Well I will proceed by copying into my old folder and see what happens.
Well there are some other textures that I have downloaded within zips. these work fine and are free. And look great. So the only thing I can figure is all these textures I have are just "wonky" in that there must be something in how I got them. I do the same steps with the ones I had and the new ones, but the old ones don't work and the new ones do.
So I can give my life to figuring it out, or just go with the ones I have that work and go with that. As there isn't a big collection of people waiting for this and it is more for me to lay with. So I will just use the new ones.
Thank you all for your interest and willingness to assist.
Humm, I seems to have had a sort of break through, though it will be time consuming. I used Gimp's flatten image and then exported to the jpg, and suddenly things work. Doing this 2300+ time will be a bit boring, but I have no life so why not.
Now the problem is when I load the map the textures look bleached out. Is this a gamma problem? Is there a set level I need to apply?
Thank you all for your willingness to coach me on this.
Well it is really weird. The textures are all divisible by 16, under 256, 24 bit hi rez going to wally and maptools, two sub folders convert perfectly, four others won't load the wals created. All the details of the various wals reda the same. One fold that worked is tga, the other is jpg to wal. I can't find a common thing to adjust. Most strange.
