User Character Sets

Character tilesets from the old version seems to just create all-black screens for me...  :(

Am I doing it wrong? Or do these tilesets simply not work with the new version?

Old tilesets work fine, though you will probably need to add references to the new professions in the graphics file. The only time I've gotten an all black screen is when I left a tileset as a png instead of converting it to a 24 bit bitmap, so make sure you've done that.

Tried adding a converted .bmp of herbdogs tileset.
Still comes out blackscreened.

Playing windowed with:
[WINDOWEDX:960]
[WINDOWEDY:300]
[FONT:144.bmp]

Edit: I screwed up. Everything works now! Somehow managed to convert it into a jpeg instead of a bmp..

Thanks!
