What I'm trying to do is open (import) a standard image in CrystalTile and save it in one of the many formats that the program supports. This seems to work perfectly up to the point where I actually save the image... All I get is an empty file, or, if I import over the top of the image I'm viewing in the ROM, I get that file.

I must be missing something, because if not, this is the world's most useless import feature.

yeah that happened once to me, okay make sure that you are in tile view goto properties - scale change it to something smaller than what you have 400 to 200
now you can see more in the window right (more tiles)
now import your image place where needed and double click somewhere other than the imported image in that window now you can save that change to the rom.
I reccomend though that you dump and edit (import export and save) through the dumped files and not the rom itself that way you can always find the problem with a record of your work systema systemb systemc only renaming it to origanal file name "system" when you are ready to test the changes you have made through repacking your rom (dslazy, dsbuff) save you a lot of effort trust me (systemac1) 200 hundred mistakes later but this one works...

Afraid that didn't help me. I imported the image, double clicked outside the area of the image but in the same window and nothing. I still end up saving the exact same image that I started with.

EDIT: Double clicking ON the image itself seems to be working for me; may also have to do with the fact that I was not on the 9.14.09 version before. Problem solved I suppose. =)

    Ayn Odin comes with Android. I'm sure it's possible to install some other distro instead.

    @Jonnathann_2022, It should work, haven't got the cart to test it but it hopefully should.

    I'll have to find a usable cable for mine before I can find out. I vaguely recall the software bugged out on win10 the last time I tried tho

    Try running it in compatibility mode.

    Or a virtual machine even.

    *VMware Workstation and VirtualBox are both free. (*) Trial.
  • Jonnathann_2022 @ Jonnathann_2022:
    Unfortunately I also tried here on Win 10 and it doesn't work. OS does not install driver on EFA

    I use VirtualBox for development at my job, that is really good advice @M4x1mumReZ

    @Shape,
    I use VMware mostly for testing out old software and hardware.
  • M4x1mumReZ @ M4x1mumReZ:
    Since I don't want to bloat up my entire machine.
  • Shape @ Shape:
    @Jonnathan_2022 use a VirtualBox image of Win2k or XP like @M4x1mumReZ suggested and it should work

    I also use it for Linux Mint as my main development environment.
