Fighter Factory 3 problem

Question

I click 'run current project' in Fighter Factory 3 and get the following error: 

 

Error message: Can't load redranger.sff
Error loading chars/ff3_0/ff3_0.def
Error loading p1
 
Can anyone help me out? 
 
I'm absolutely new to the program. 
 
Thanks,

Yes. If mugen.exe is not set up to run the project, the error is something like "You need to configure a MUGEN first." 

 

I've done some more research and I think that, mugen is unable to read the sprite folder. But I've converted my sprites from .png to .bpm and made sure they're indexed to 256 colors, and it's still not working. I'm either not understanding the problem or am missing something to do with the .sff file. 

 

Thanks,

Hmm.

 

did you name the Def. file RedRanger?

 

also are you working on a character?

 

because the problem could be how you set your def. file

 

Normally your Def. file should read like this:

..[Example]...

 

[info]
name="Shinku"
displayname="Shinku"
versiondate=7/10/2014
mugenversion=1.0
author="Noob"
pal.defaults=1,2,3,4

[Files]
sprite=shinku.sff
sound=shinku.snd
anim=shinku.air
cmd=shinku.cmd
cns=shinku.cns
st=shinku.cns
stcommon=common1.cns
pal1=shinku1.act
pal2=shinku2.act
pal3=shinku3.act

 

As you know when you open a character in FF3 (FF classic, FFU) the DEF. file is like a map of the characters data and you have to make sure all the files are in one folder so when you open FF it can read all the files to get the charater function in the program its self and in mugen exe for testing.

I am working on creating a character, yes. 

 

I never did figure out what was wrong. Instead, I deleted the whole thing and started again. Now it works. *sigh*

 

Thank you for your help,

A word of advice.

 

DO NOT USE BMP.

 

USE PNG.

 

Bit Map images, can do 256 color, but they have this issue where you have 0 control of your palette.

You can view it once and it will show up, then you can try again and it may not show up at all.

 

Use PNG, because it will keep your pallete, and will stay indexed.

Thanks for the advice. 

 

Also, I'm using your Shelly videos as my guideline for how to build a character. They're very helpful and made me think I might actually be able to build a few simple characters.

i have da same problem... but it's now "cns" file.

what that means, and how i gonna fix it?

 

EDIT:

i fixed the "cns", but now i have "cmd" problem. Plus, these others:

Error loading chars/ff3_0/ff3_0.def 
Error loading p1

 

What does those mean, and what is "Error loading p1"? I check everything. is it because, there is a typo or something?
