Just wanted to check I am OK to use some Snoopers content with it?

I had the following error in the debug console

Code: Select all

Exception: TypeError: this.CRCNews is undefined
    Active script: snoopers 2.5
    snoopers.js, line 560:

I would like permission to change some of the pics slightly.
I have redone all of the channel adds, just the small section of the reporter pics. I've actually designed over 13 new channel pics with very nice aliens and reporters and backgrounds.
I figured out how to unpack the oxz but don't know how to re-pack it to install and see if it works.
I didn't change any files names on the pics, so they should work fine.
Here are the pics I did. Let me know what you think...
They cover over the original ones:

To re-pack just create a ZIP archive again and rename it OXZ. Another way to test is to rename the folder to .OXP and move it to your AddOns

I'll give the renaming the folder a try first, then I'll figure out how to create a zip.
I know, I know,,, I'm not all the computer savvy. In truth, I do a lot of surfing, drawing, and gaming on my MacBook and that's about it. lol

Tried both ways and neither one loaded up.
Man I really wanted it to work. lol
Not sure why it wouldn't....
But I'm not a code writer or developer, just an artist.
If anyone wants to give it a look over and see if they can figure it out I'd be most willing to send them the zip or oxz via email. Just PM me.

Here are all 15 pieces of channel art, updated:
I really hope you guys like them and that they end up in both the GNN oxz and Snoopers oxz.
Please let me know what you think of them and any ideas or changes you think of.
Thanks. :)

They do add a professional touch … and I like the aliens a lot. There is perhaps a tendency for the female presenters to be - how to put it? - a little forward in the chestal area: maybe appropriate for the entertainment channel, but a bit cheesecake for e.g. Galcop Watch.

A few typos:

Bad News Network: should be EXISTENCE, not EXISTANCE

Medical Watch: should be Contagions, not Contagiens

Navy News: should be Naval Recruiting, not Navel Recruting

Chazzz Warwikk: should be GalCop's undermanned, not Galcops under manned
should be UPS picking up the pace, not pase
should be Connecting worlds, not Conecting worlds

(Anarchies Haven or Hell - this works, but might be a typo for Heaven or Hell)

Okay here are the Snoopers channels re-makes all in one pic.
The images that I did not adjust are, snoopers_background.png, snoopers_gcnews_clean.png,
snoopers_gcnewsA11.png, and the snoopers_redux.png. I like Melina Escobar hence why her pics are unchanged. All the channels on the link are in order as they appear in the image folder, for easy match up.

Cool! One typo in GalCop Watch: Fugatives should be Fugitives.
