Press "A" or skin10.jpg and select the area where the picture has to show up

Move the corners around to make the picture fit on the model

I had the same problem until I did the following

"Also double click on “DLL Folder†and put the path to your oxygen files. And example might be c:\Oxygen\02light If you fail to place the path to the oxygen files then the viewer will not work properly." from the installation guide, now it works.

The buldozer still does not though....configbin error still!!!!!!

Your bulldozer's files must be placed directly in your HD, not in a folder("C:\bulldozer.exe" or "D:\bulldozer.exe" etc...).

You should make a partition only for OFP. smile.gif

Nop. The best way is the "SUBST" command. You can create a virtual HD like this:

1. create a folder "viewer". IE "c:\viewer"

2. Place this line in the autoexec.bat:

</span><table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">SUBST H: C:\VIEWER<span id='postcolor'>

(Drive H: is your virtual drive)

3. Reboot and now in windows explorer you have a new drive xmas.gif

Uhhh make sure the texture is within the accepted dimensions. Abuus tutorial lists all the accepted dimensions it slike

64,128,256,512,1024 I think but 128 and 64 are right a 100 percent

File -> Options you need to set the path to your texture.

Your viewer should be in c:\ (as per Bis readme)

c:\youraddon\youraddon.p3d

c:\youraddon\yourtextures.*

file -> Options -> Texture name prefix = youraddon\

quit and restart Oxygen and try again.

..

If you dont want the viewer in your root then you are better off working through Brsseb's tutorial which tells you another way of setting up O2.

You know guys.......my Oxygen setup is nothing like the way it is described in this thread, or indeed in the readme.

I have Oxygen in:

C:\Editing Tools\Oxygen\

Buldozer is also installed in the same folder:

C:\Editing Tools\Oxygen\

Everything works just fine and dandy.

I think the important things to set up right are:

1./ The path to the External viewer (buldozer), plus the command line switches, in my case:

C:\Editing Tools\Oxygen\ buldozer.exe -noland -window

2./ The path to the DLL files, in my case:

C:\Editing Tools\Oxygen\

At least it works just great for me.

Should i delete the files in viewer directory? If no, it doesn't work. I can't texture anything. sad_o.gif I have installed o2 and bulldozer following Brsseb's tutorial. Help me.

Hello,

The links in the post above don t work for me, also are the pictures not displayed.

I wonder why is that?

Did you check the date of the post and read the rules that apply to that?
