Upload issues

Been trying to upload several color schemes lately without success...

I get either:

A) The forever "thinking circle" , with no upload complete or error message , or

B) The message "upload failed, be sure file is less than 2MB"

Files are all 4200-4400KB, (I've successfully uploaded other color schemes that were over12,000KB) and these are only modified versions of previously uploaded schemes.

Any advise (besides starting again from scratch!) would be appreciated

It could be something they haven't reset since the site crash. I noticed the picture preview on attachments is still not back/working.

I haven't flown with you in a while. I'm off on disability right now so I'll keep an eye out for you hosting one of your fields.

The only thing I can think of trying is uploading them as zip and rfx and see if one works because of file type.

I've just noticed the swap pages look a bit broken, with the "most recent, most popular, and highest rated" categories not being separated but are all merged into one, showing all of those categories at once. Each named categories is also not in its usual tab. I'm not sure if this is a browser issue though or its related to not being able to upload anything.

Thanks Guys.....

I did a small change of a couple pixels to one stock scheme and uploaded as a test....it worked but my others wont go...they are substantially larger but not AS large as others I've uploaded in the past...

Hope its something with RF that gets fixed, I'd hate to loose all that work...I'll post some screen shots of them later because I "feel the need" to put something up, LOL!

It looks to be the big Curtiss Jenny for flying around his fields. I have that one from him. I'd love those CS's.

They look great!

Post one of those colorschemes in this thread and I will see what the error you get. I can upload swap files and post them in your name or anyone else's for that matter...

Curtiss Jenny someone put on swaps way back in 2009...original color scheme was a bit of a mess, lots of backward/upside down parts, ailerons on opposite wings etc... etc...took me months to figure out how to line anything up up for painting.

Right now its one giant .XCF file in gimp, I toggle different layers on and off for fuse/wing/cowling and decal combos, export to my main model in RF, then "save color scheme as" to create a new TGA.....

I've been able to upload some of them that way (Army green, a Marine gray, and a Rhinebeck Navy yellow/gray) but these last couple wont go.....

You want the TGA files as an attachment here?

In the ones I've previously uploaded, I added a masked_s.tga file (spec map?) to kill some of the high gloss

Should I put them both here for each version?

Thanks

One other thing...

A jenny just aint a Jenny without that spiders web of king-posts, rigging and lower wing loops....any possibility you savy 3-D builders could reverse engineer them onto this model?

or better yet.....build another one WITH all that stuff added!?!

I think your first one was this where you fixed all the stuff wrong with the Army CS.

Is this the plane on the swaps you're talking about, and the one YOU USE?

http://www.knifeedge.com/forums/down...=file&id=10151

Give me a few links to pictures or upload pictures of a Jenny you want modeled. It would be good to have some really nice shots of it. I'm finishing a plane I'm working on now and might do it for my next plane. ( BUT NO PROMISES )
