PostSubject: png corrupt files with custard   6/9/2012, 22:40

Here is a short guide to the png (corrupt) files that show with custard. These ""Corrupt"" files do NOT always mean the whole thing is corrupt. They usually show when the creator has used the IMG Changer to swap out the EA images with their own ones. Here is a short step on how to clear those pesky png's

I am assuming you already have delphy's custard tool if not you can download it HERE

First step is to open your custard then click on file (pic below) then on open, go to where you have kept your downloaded sims 3 pack



Next is to choose the sims 3 pack you want to check (pic below)



You will notice in the next pic that the actual sims 3 pack (top line) is white and the only red (corrupt) ones are all below it they all say png on them



What you do next is untick all the little boxes next to the red (corrupt) lines (pic below)



Once you have done that go back to file and then click save as........ (pic below)



This will save in the same place as the original so its a good idea to save as copy (pic below)



Now go back to file and open - you are just going to repeat the first steps here (pic below)



This time though you want to check the copied sims 3 pack (pic below)



Hopefully this would have cleared the png's and leave you with a clear sims 3 pack (pic below)



NOTE - This does not always work to remove added images but this does not mean the whole download is corrupt. It is well worth just checking along the shown corrupt line to see if it is png or img that has gone red. If in doubt then I would read any tutorial on how the custard tool works a  good one can be found HERE

For this tutorial I have used a fabulous creation by ha123 - Twin Oaks Country Club - find it HERE

Thanks for passing this info along Ina! I have downloaded lots from the exchange from very trustworthy sims creators there and it threw me for a loop when their stuff came up corrupt! Not knowing about this I ended up getting rid of the items. I'm going back and downloading them again and this time doing those steps! more love

* Do you mind if I share this info on my reg blog in my tools page? I'll use my pics if you want or link it back to here, on second thought, I'll just link it back to here. If you don't mind.*
