Can't open up .bot files in Notepad++
« on: June 29, 2019, 10:06:04 PM »
Every time I open up a .bot file to BFE it I always end up with a bunch of crap that I can't properly edit. Any fixes?

Nice bot name. That's just the data to encode your bot's preview image. You can scroll past it and edit the other sections as normal.

Thanks boss. 183,628 lines of pp later and I've found the normal stuff. Even made a new bot without a picture and it didn't have the black stuff in it.

Talking about the black part and datas that have symbols which make it look garbled, they also appear if you put a chassis skin I think, especially if you increase the skin size on the image editor program. I tend to encounter it on the bot file

Also, please attach your image to the post itself rather than leaving it at the attachments section. It will make them easier to see
