Hi all

I came upon this tool as I got rather annoyed at the monotony of renaming tga files for custom portraits in Rome and Medieval Total War 2, i.e. 001, 002, 456 etc.

Unfortunatley when I try to rename an image using "<Inc Nr:1>
[so far I've tried Jpeg/TGA] it comes up with this warning message. It says some files but it really means all of them.

So I can't rename the file without rendering the final product useless as the new extension is known as "file" and nothing on my computer can open it. So currently this software is just wasting free space on my hard-drive, and I really want this software to work ^_^

but after some checking I can do other things such as change the "case of the file names from upper to lower etc just not rename the files

I cannot see from your screenshot which methods you are using. Some methods will change the extension if not explicitly stated that it shouldn't.

On example that might lead to this warning is if you use the New Name method and have a new name like this:
<Name>_<Inc nr>
To avoid the problem you should add the following to the new name pattern
.<Ext>
That will render the new name pattern like this:
<Name>_<Inc nr>.<Ext>

If this doesn't help you, then please let me have a look at the actual methods you are using, either by posting a screenshot or sending me a copy of the method list.

Well as I said, the only method I'm currently using is <Inc Nr:1>
I'm not adding any other method, the files I am trying to rename can only be a number i.e. 001 otherwise they won't work in the game I'm using

<Name>_<Inc nr>.<Ext> does work but it is useless for what I'm trying to do as it simply adds a number to the already existing name, so "capture_6" becomes "capture_6_7"

Use this pattern:
<Inc nr>.<Ext>

no unfortunatley it still doesn't work, the same message as before.

These are screenshots of my settings if that would make any difference?

I am pretty sure it will work. You must have done something different. The settings have no impact on this part of the program.
