    Hi I'm a little confused on how to save my character. I'm using a mac so i'm not entirely sure if that could be the cause. Below is a picture of what I'm trying to save but it says that I need to enter the missing paths manually.

    That's not a problem of Mac, It happens in all systems.

    I explained the same thing here:

    if you have you .swf file in a folder and all your hairs in a subfolder like /hairs, you should add that in your Default Folders, so you don't have error and can save characters fast.

    Okay so I think I got the clothes imported because I imported them onto the character and it didn't have me save them but I'm not entirely sure since I don't see them in the clothing section. I still can't get the hair imported though so I'm not sure what the problem is this time. As seen in the picture, there is the red outline on it indicating it can't find the correct source but that's the folder that I placed the hair in so now I'm confused.

    The default folder is fine. What's wrong is the file name, the name is incomplete. For ie "mods/hairname.png" (clearly you are missing the extension).

    Okay so I added the extension and it is still not working for me. I could just be doing something wrong since I have little experience with flash.

    try this... rename the file to something simple, without special symbols like ", ; ( ) :".

    load the hair, and try to save again

    It still won't let me save. Could I be doing something else wrong?

    Now I'm lost, now everything looks right.

    A possible cause to not letting you save, is the Flash configuration for local storage, but I in this case the path is red, which clearly means it can't see the file.

    Have you tried putting the swf and the png in the same folder?

    Okay so this is weird, I placed it in the same folder as the loader and it's green now without me specifying the folder. It's correct now right?

    Well, I think something is not working with the default folders. I don't know if it's a problem of Mac (in theory it should the same as any Unix, any Linux like the one I'm using)

    maybe the default folder should be "/hairs" or "/hairs/".

    Though a bit late try

    "Hairs\"

    That works on my PC. Anything else seems to fail. Go figure ^^

    Are you sure it's not meant to be ''Mods/Hairs/''?

    If you don't specify a path it will just assume it is in the same place as the Loader(that is the starting point). If you try to just put ''Hairs/'' it wont work since there is no folder called ''Hairs'' where the Loader is. You have to go through the ''Mods'' folder first before going to the folder ''Hairs''. >.>

    Edit: Just to make sure you understand: Just put ''Mods/Hairs/'' in the ''Default Folders''* thing and it should work as long as what you're trying to save is in the ''hairs'' folder. Otherwise you will have to manually put the path in.

    *''Default Path'' would make more sense. >.>

    I think both him and I are using Vanilla SDT. I just created a folder named Hairs and downloaded new hair styles into it and I think he did the same. Nothing to do with other mods or loader ;D (Not sure what it is yet. I'm still trying to get accustomed to the Vanilla version. :P)

    The forwards stroke "/" does not work for me. I had to use backstroke "\". I thought that he might have had same issue as me.

    That feel when the amount of work going in to creating a structured filesystem for vanilla is basically identical work involved in the loader.
    May as well use the loader, stuff is portable. (Also mods)

    Nope. You should really look more carefully before you say someone is misunderstanding or don't know enough to give a helpful answer.

    If I didn't know enough to give a sure answer/solution, I wouldn't give a answer. >.>


    Edit: Well the way he got it to work(put it in the same folder as game), works with Loader and Vanilla SDT. But, why would he mention the Loader if he wasn't using it? That just makes things confusing lol. >.>

    :o
    The advise was nothing more than the direction of the stroke so it wouldn't matter what directory it was in.

    I think I will.
