First off, make sure that all your videos are encoded in WMV 8 format (not WMV 9)
As for Skinner crashing, send me a copy of the skin (find me on IRC sometime today or tomorrow. #mxm on EFNET)

If the skins that are crashing are yours that you made. Make sure that you didn't try to save the new/revised skin over an existing skin directory. I had the same problem before too with MXM crashing on the skins I made because of the exact same problem. I think it also happened when I went through these steps: Load up skinner, create skin, save, then edit current skin, then try to save again either in a new or the current directory. The skin I just created would freeze mxm on loadup. So my way of working with skinner was to Load up skinner, create skin, save to new directory. And if I had to make any edits, I would close skinner, reload the saved skin, make the edit, then save again in a new folder.
Just some feedback for G. This was about 2months ago or so when I worked with skinner for the first time.

Dunno, it shouldn't be crashing at all. But an example skin that crashes Skinner would help fixing this.

I'll see if I can recreate the error later this week. It's been a while now since I tried to make my first skin.

Thank you people!!
At last i found the error!!! MXMXSkinner cut the name of files with a long namefile ("cacho pequeño transparente.png"
) when write the MXM_SKIN.XML
Could Skinner detect errors in the .XML when load a skin and show a message instead of go to hyperspace?
3-4 days to finish my first skin i`ll show you it then. I have ripped the menus of Teminator 2 DVD to do the skin (near 16:9 if you strech the image in a 16:9 TV, deformed in 4:3 TV
Sorry for my english....

Seems like the vb FileCopy function can't handle long filenames... weird

This has also happened to me a few times. Like when working on on a skin and I save it. Then if happened to edit the xml file to add unsupported things like the Zpoints when I try to reload load itm it'll give me an error. Not everytime, but sometimes.
That's why I always say make a backup first.
