Well done, Fluff! I'm sending you a virtual bag of catnip toys!

Many thanks.

<the Fluffbutt runs madly around the room, zonked out over catnip, tumbling over the mousie with joy>

<runs over to Danny and PURRRS around his ankle>

I'll describe some I remember:

The Wetness and wet..something ones are like an underwash.
Arctic oil is an oil type brush with icey spikes to it.
Cottonball is like scumbling with bunched balls of cotton - very nice on scenics

Fur and FluffItUp are an attempt to try getting a furry look to the edges of things.

the rest are guessable from their names. <I hope haha>

I just downloaded Paint Engine and used the new -or old- depending when the last update was and used the cotton balls and nothing else. I may go back and add more depth but I will have to see it printed.

Re: Paint Engine Presets (file)

Danny, Fluff, et al, this thread is a treasure trove of great presets. I am indebted to you and will post mine here if I come up with any worth sharing. Thank you.

Re: Paint Engine Presets (file)

Well, I for one am thrilled this popped up again. I have had so many different computer since I had this working properly that it reminded me how much I miss it.
I have it installed, followed all Dannys instructions and for the life of me can't get ANY of the presets to show up in the engine.

Danny, can you point me where to look for my error? I have a separate file of my plugins that PS goes to for them (like you taught me!) and the Paint Engine is there, it shows up in the list and opens in PS, but although I renamed the ini file and put the new file there, it doesn't show anything in the drop down menu.

Any help to solve the mystery will be happiness!

thanks..

* The location of fmachine.ini will depend on your version of Windows. Could be C:\WINDOWS, C:\WIN or C:\WINNT or the like.

It can be confusing.

Re: Paint Engine Presets (file)

I found the file...followed Dannys instructions to rename..etc...but the presets just won't show up. Someone else suggested I delete it all and start over?

Re: Paint Engine Presets (file)

Hi Marilyn:

Wonderful to have you pop in!

The PE plugin file can go in your personal plugins folder, e.g., \My plugins...

...but fmachine.ini MUST be named fmachine.ini and reside in the Windows folder that corresponds to your version of Windows.

See attachement for Windows 2000... XP is probably pretty close to this.

Keep us posted.

~Danny~
