      It seems that FyxtRPG.com has been blocked from linking to it. This is considered “hot linking” and a lot of websites do not allow it. I had hoped that Deviant Art would because they are an art collection but apparently not.

      What does this mean?
      It means even though the image may appear on Deviant Art it will not appear on FyxtRPG.com.

      Work Around:
      To fix this save the image to another place, like Image Shack or something and link from there. These wesites are specifically designed for hot linking. But please before you do that make sure that you can do that with the art. Most you can as long as you do not sell or use their art for profit but please be sure. If FyxtRPG.com receives information that Copyright or use guidelines are not being followed it may be removed from the site.

      Fix:
      I am working on server code that will save a local copy of the image to our server. This will fix this image link problem and also speed things up since the images will be local. I hope to have this fix in the next update.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

      If an image link is not working save it as a file. Then upload it as a file to the character. Be sure to remove the broken link after a new image is added.

      The new image system has been added. It is advised that you upload a file for all your images instead of using URL links.

      Thanks! Please let me know if you have any issues with this.
