Oh, and to anyone who tries to follow the OldMspaint link and gets a website 404, just go up to the adress (www......) bar and click and press enter to go to the adress again, since the website just doesn't allow hotlinks...

I feel like i'm being a pain- now mspaint isnt working, it says it cant create a new document, even if i just use the drag-and-drop method. I feel like an idiot but im sure this one is not my fault...

I don't understand the problem. Was mspaint working previously? If it was, you may want to redownload it. If it hasnt worked at all, I dont know.

I'm using windows vista, so I don't know if this helps or not, but you should be able to just right click one of the images that modkeen gives you, select "open with" and then "choose a default program". Make the old mspaint your default program.

After this, you should only have right click an image and select 'edit'.

No luck... Would it still be possible for me to just use the Windows 7 version?

As far as I know, no.

There are instructions for getting the old ms paint to work on windows 7 here:

Alternative method:

Hope one of these works for you.

Image
The Second link you gave me came up with this one, which is working perfectly... Its not the Windows XP one... Or is it? Im guessing Windows 2000, but will it work do you think? The picture is obviousy a direct screenshot :) Or maybe it is the XP one, I can't really tell.

This whole thing is making me feel dumb because I'm normally so good with computers.... Haha, oh well. Thanks for the help, and if you can give any advice on this one, that would be great.

Alright, awesome, thank you SO much!!!!!!! I think now I have everything I need to start my mod, except for competance, which I should be able to work without thanks to your Tutorial :D

Thanks for all the help (speedy help, resopnses, links, etc.)!!! I hope to have my mod out sometime 2011?
By the way, I'm very excited for Battle of the Brains. I guess you might be tired of hearing that, but your mods are the best out there...

Anyway, thanks again!!!
