Error message

Post by MTSElectro »

Help needed please - an error message saying "Failed to Patch JAM File." has started popping up when I go to upload the carset to the game from GP2Edit. I'm not aware of any changes I've made to my game files so not sure why this has started happening.

Hm, hard to tell without deeper information.

The problems I encountered where either that GP2edit had a problem with the path or the color palette setting :-k It might also be that one of the cars has a wrong palette, does patching a single car bitmap work?

While exporting, uncheck the boxes for the front and rear wheels in the "Teams and Drivers Graphics" section of the export page. If that way you can export without errors, it means the jam files for the wheels in your gamejams folder don't follow the original size and position (very common with custom wheels), so you need to replace them with the original ones (in the gamejams folder) before exporting from GP2Edit. That's the most likely issue, but if you still get the error with the wheels unchecked, it means you have a problem with another jam or one of the car paintings.
