I downloaded the winzip file for Character Texture maps.

I go to unzip and I get this error "Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valid file. If you downloaded this file, try downloading this file again"

So I downloaded. and redownloaded.. than I right clicked and downloaded "save link as".. . . still cant unzip.

Any suggestions?

Hello Mr Xombiekiller

I am assuming you are trying to open the zip file from the gallery/3D assets page.
If this is the case these will not work properly with the latest version of muvizu anyway so I would forget about them.

The best way of getting the new textures (albeit one at a time) is to load the relevant default character and then richt click and go into decals tab and then chose download/import custom texture.

I do not have access to Muvizu (I'm at work!) at the moment so the last para might not be quite right but it should be something like that

xombiekiller, I believe that file has been incorrectly named as a zip file by the person that uploaded it. It's actually a rar file. If you rename it to .rar, you should be able to open it with WinRAR

Good news
Remember you will need to do your painting in a program such as PSE or Gimp or PSPro which allows tou to use layers.
You will need your template on one layer and paint on the layer(s) above and then before exporting you will need to hide/delete the the template layer.

Don't forget to save to a new filename so as not to lose your template!

I've tracked down that rar file and replaced with a zip file so should work fine now for anyone that tries it again in the future

Are these not the old templates though which will not be 100% compatible with the newest Muvizu release - or has Dreeko uploaded the new ones now?
