Ok. I've made a couple skins in the past few years. Nothing special, but my method has been the same throughout them all. Most recently I've made the "Tighty-Whitey Rodian" for JK2 (but it can be used in JKA as well).
ANYWAY, the other day I tried to make another skin using the Rodian model. I tried to edit the torso jpeg file (just like I always do) and when I went to refresh the image in ModView, I got an error that said the following:
JPEG read error: Requested feature was omitted at compile time
I thought at first the images weren't being directed to where they needed to be, or that the path had some error in it, but no matter what I tried, I still get that error.
Erm... Maybe the JPEG's file extention wasn't right, or maybe in some off chance you tried to load it way too fast... Give more details on your methods. ex like what editor you used and such.
Well the methods I followed were EXACTLY as I've done it in the past (working off of the Skinning For Dummies tutorial written by jp-30) I don't know if it's still be hosted elsewhere, but I managed to find it here:
I'm not quite sure why it isn't working, because like I said, I just made a skin not that long before I tried to make another one. Any help will be welcome.
Yeah, its because when you save the jpg you probably set it to prorgressive scan, use the standard, first one.

I don't understand what you mean by "progressive scan". If it's how I am saving it that is the problem then it's something I've done by mistake.

That's precisely it. JPGs need to be saved as baseline, not progressive. It's one of the options you choose when saving the image.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
Oh snap. I just found that progressive thing you were talking about. It wasn't checked just now, and I don't remember ever checking it (at least not intentionally).
In any case, it's all working right now, so thanks for all your help guys.
