Re: [nbos] [FM8] Free & Open City Block Symbol Presets Released

First of all, if anyone else is having problems like this, please let me
know! One possible culprit comes to mind, as you'll see below, but it would
be the case only if others are having these problems.

I'm having a bit of trouble with this one.

After making sure I had all the previous sets, I made sure my directory
structure looked like the example provided in the PDF. Yet, some symbols do
not appear when a preset is applied to a map. Concerned I might have
something in the wrong location, or that I didn't have everything, I removed
the entire directory, re-downloaded all symbol sets and reinstalled them
again. However, the results are the same.

What I get from the presets is most of the farm symbols, about half the
mixed symbols, and few or none of all the residential presets. Yet, from the
images in the PDF, I know I have the missing symbols installed in the
directories they should be expected.

Can you think of anything I might be able to do to get it to work properly?

I have to admit that I'm a bit puzzled here. When we started testing the
symbol presets, we had some people reporting the same problems, but we found
in every case that the people with trouble didn't have the original Vintyri
symbols in the right place, so FM8 couldn't find them. It sounds like you
have everything where it should be, but apparently FM8 is finding only some
of the symbols. This has me a bit stumped. However, we had considerable
trouble with the uploads to MediaFire, so I wonder if there's some
corruption in the files. If so, other people will be making similar
reports, and I'll have to reload them. If not, I'll have to ponder.

It's going on 8 p.m. here in Germany, but tomorrow I'll download and put
thosee files temporarily on one of our machines to see if the same thing
happens here.

Whatever the problem is, I'll be sticking with it and will get back on it.
