Blank Images

Post by Elvenrix » Fri Sep 03, 2010 7:20 pm

I just started edting the hamster example (here),
and when i change the image to any other, i got a blank rectangle instead of the actual image.
First i thought it would be the image extension, the example has a .png, and i had a .jpg.
I edited the image and saved as .png, but i still have the blank rectangle.
The image im trying to display is in the same directory as the hamster example image.

Anyone know what im doing wrong?
This is how it looks like.

It's your graphics card that can't handle images whose width and height aren't powers of two.

Hum... quite easy to solve this, resizing the image works perfectly.
Thank you.

Just pad it if your don't want to scale the image itself.

This bug is REALLY annoying. Maybe LOVE should autopad graphics. In fact, I'm going to post a feature request!
Good bye.

People /still/ have an issue with this? Seriously, just about /everything/ uses 2^ texture dimensions.

But anyway, seeing as how so many people have this problem, shouldn't someone go put the solution on the wiki, in a very visible place? I'd do it myself, but I've never been able to log into it...

It USED to. 0.5.0 padded them automatically. 0.6.x does not and the reason has been explained many times. Don't file a request. It won't happen. Just pad the graphics yourself or use a library to do it for you.
