This is probably the silliest question ever, but I haven't been able to find an answer. How do I add external downloaded textures to my game and so I will be able to hex with them? Thanks in advance ^^;
Most people just chuck them in Resource/Catz or Resource/Dogz, but you can put them anywhere you like in the Petz directory - just don't move them after using them, or the pet will show up untextured. You can then import them through PWS by browsing to the appropriate folder, but since PWS can be pretty funky with importing textures, I would recommend manually adding the file path to the texture list in LNZ! Depending on where you put it exactly, the file path should look something like this: \Resource\Catz\blancadress.bmp
;Name,argument [Texture List] \art\textures\Plush.bmp 1 ;0 \art\textures\hair10.bmp 1 ;1 \resource\catz\LWHTabbyBRBMackerel.bmp 0 ;2 body \resource\catz\LWHTabbyBrThinnerHstripes.bmp 0 ;3 legs \resource\catz\LWHHair10-BR.bmp 0 ;4 no stripe areas for brown
files set at 1 are transparent and will show whats underneath, common for in game files. My externals are special ones that don't exist in Petz so are set to 0 so it references only the furfile :3 The comments after the semicolon are just for me to know what it is and where xD
For files with funky partial opacity such as some brindles, tabbies and merle/tortie, the base colour will be something weird like pink or green (75 and 135 respectively). To get rid of that just use the opacity setting to whichever one it is - it's that easy!
You don't have to "install" textures exactly, you just place the bmps into the right folders in your game directory (Resource\Catz\ or Resource\Dogz\), and then as you hex you will "link" the pet or breedfile so that it looks for it in the folder location where you've placed it

@aerie @amanda @alexzander So, I added textures through LNZ successfully, but when I tried to put the OG breed file back in my resource folder it auto switches the original textures to the ones I added in the copied breedfile through LNZ? Like as soon as I put it in the resource folder it swaps the original breedfiles textures to the ones I tried to add to a copy of the original breedfile even after I've moved that hex file somewhere else?
And the second thing is, when trying to open my hexed breedfile in PW it gives me this error message
so I tried other original breed files like the calico, etc. and they all give me the same message, but work fine in game?
CatCreature: Ooh, but that's a good point too about those familiar movies...I do the same with some of my favorite movies when I need comfort! That makes a lot of sense!

Catbaloo: Even though they are running from a set number of actions I find Petz still feel organic and more lifelike than a lot of vpets. I also enjoy Tamagotchis but they are so obviously on a set timer that if you run two simultaneously they poop at the same time.

shetanka: And since they were some questions - I explained one point more explicitly: "2. Only purebred dogz + mixbreeds which appear purebred. They can be any colours/textures, they can be hexed etc."

Kayota: I always tell people that Petz was the most well-done virtual pet ever created. I like nintendogs and such but Petz feels a lot less stiff and predictable. The personality traits can be combined so many ways that you can get completely unique petz.

Echotooth: I really like Christmas, idk why I just like the winter weather.

Alex@Marvel: Totally valid reason, Halloween is mine because I love the decor and the snacks.

Alex@Marvel: Thankfully yes, I'd be very sad if the PC completely disappeared.

Echotooth: Hey, how do I get custom titles here? Do I have to be a mod or something?
Aug 24, 2023 10:52:25 GMT -5
Sue: If I remember correctly, it’s after a certain number of posts… been a while, so I can’t remember the details.

✬MsWildiful✬: What Sue said is true. It depends on how many posts you've made here. You'll go from Petz petter to Petz trainer to God, etc. I'm not sure how many posts are required for each title though.

Alex@Marvel: I believe Echo was asking about custom titles, not the regular ranks. I looked and I can't find it right offhand to answer your question.

Star ★: We offer them out for various reasons, you don't need to be a particular rank or anything like that but warning levels or past warnings are taken into account depending on when they were how long and how active you are etc.

kk: I am so excited to see people still playing! I haven't had a computer in years but managed to hold on to a handful of my pets from 2003. 20 years later I am finally playing again.
