    The loader does not support the built in save.
    For more information on how to set up files to correctly be loaded, read the saving guide.

    Can you post a link to that saving guide?

    At the moment I have all my hairs and backgrounds in the same folder as SDT which leads to quite a bit of clutter. I'm having trouble moving the hairs and backgrounds to separate folders and having SDT recognize the new places.

    Trying to follow the tutorial as best as I can without the images I have basically reset the character's hair and BG, located them in their new folder and gone to update the character. I add the two folders I use for hairs and BG on the bottom (though it is kind of fiddly and doesn't always seem to work) and I add the folders onto the top (eg: Backgrounds/BG01.png) This lets me update the character but for some reason it doesn't seem to stick. When I click over to a different character and back again it doesn't load the hair and BG. Even when I save my character list and reload it when restarting SDT the hair and BG are no longer found.

    I've read it and it only seems to apply to the loader, what it says doesn't really follow over to the main version of the flash. It also doesn't address the problems I was having with trying to get folders recognized in the flash.

    I basically want to move all my hairs and backgrounds from the root folder to their own separate folders. Trying to add the folders in the flash doesn't seem to remember them when I load the character up again.

    Um. Hi. I got a bit of a problem with these thing of saving the character. I've recently had a custom sissy/trap Naruto but instead of using a hair image, I used a swf mod because I didn't had as .png Naruto's Hair. Basically, this happens:


    It would stay stuck trying to find out where it came from. I have even changed the file location but it hasn't worked either. Also, after I try for like the 3rd or 5th time, everytime I try to click again "save character" the button won't do anything. Plz Help.


    ALSO, for y'all trap/sissy lovers ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°):

    That's probably because you're playing the game online. SDT.swf is attempting to access the file system and establish relative paths, but it can't because the file is remote (or because the file is sitting in a randomly-allocated TEMP folder somewhere on your PC). Even if you managed to save everything properly, it would presumably be lost as soon as you close your Incognito browser session.

    Solution: download the game to your local hard disk and launch it from there (instead of accessing a copy hosted on somebody's website).

    Ok. Now I finally got to open it in my disk (I wasn't able to open it with flash player idk why) and with Sby's Loader I was able to save my character, but this happened: Every time I tried other swf mod like (let's say) a dress my character looses its hair

    As you can see in the image. All I can say is that naruto's hair is a swf mod ('cause I can't find it in png). Plz halp

    Whoever put together the dress SWF included an embedded charCode. This was probably a mistake by the modder. It's relatively easy to recompile a SWF file without the unwanted charCode, but you haven't actually specified which file(s) are causing the problem.

    Solutions
    • Load the dress first, and then load the Naruto hairstyle
    • Put the dress and the hairstyle into a character folder, and ensure that the dress precedes the hairstyle in Mods.txt
    • Put the dress and the hairstyle into a character folder, and include a Settings.txt file with the line:
      Code:
      blockCharData=1

    Ok but I wasn't refering JUST the dress. It was an example. Everytime I try something new like make-up or anything even non-mod related and I save the character looses it's hair. Sorry for being such an annoyance is just that I'm new and I still don't have a hang of all yet
