GIMP Doesn’t Like Smile Game Builder! Here’s Why!

Smile Game Builder

I use GIMP to render most of my custom graphics and images for RPG Maker and Smile Game Builder projects. Corrupted Images Apparently, GIMP doesn’t like Smile Game Builder much. Images created, rendered, saved, exported and imported in SGB in exactly the same way as normal. Yet 50% of images become corrupted. Images saved with other graphics programs don’t "corrupt" this way when displayed in SGB.

The windowskins subdomain will be permanently taken offline again by the end of the month, but all of the pages there will have…
