I've been using XCC TMP Editor to replace the terrain images within certain TMP files with modified ones from PNGs. It's worked fine until I got to 'cliff23.tem'. Now, whenever I go to Load > Complete and select my PNG file, nothing happens. The image doesn't change, and the asterisk doesn't appear at the file name to show that changes have been made. None of the other cliff*.tem files after 23 work either. Is this an error in the TMP files themselves? Or have I just messed up somewhere?

I've been using the unofficial XCC TMP Editor 1.05, however I've also tried it with 1.04, which comes with XCC Utilities, and it didn't work there either. I haven't created the TMP files from scratch either, I'm just replacing the pre-existing image from the original RA2 TMP file with my own.

Check the the new image you are copying is the same size as the tile.

The image is just the TMP converted to PNG using XCC Mixer, then modified in PSP and repaletted. The size of the image itself hasn't changed at all in that process.

K well that’s the obvious problem out of the way, have you tried copying & pasting it instead of loading the image?

Yep, that was the first thing I tried, didn't work. I'll try extracting the TMP again, incase it's corrupted or something.

Edit: No joy :D

My first guess was right, the image is to big so it wont load/copy it. In the TMP editor use copy or save to get the correct size of the tiles image.
