My server is not liking the files that start with ! $ or any other of those characters. Is there a way of changing these games files so that it will work online otherwise I cannot use these files and the game not working. Any help or how to change the file names?? This is for RPG Maker MZ.

Are you sure that it's those signs?
All HTML5-Based games need all filenames to follow networking rules, but ! and $ ARE ALLOWED under those rules.

So either you are not using an FTP to upload, or the error is somewhere else in the filenames.

If you are using a cheap webhoster that utilises a CMS with upload filtering, then this might cause other problems as well, because webhosters that restrict code and FTP access often have other restrictions.

Please tell us what program you use for uploading or what server you use, because the engine requires those letters as trigger signs for specific functions - it is possible to work around $ by making every sprite a full sheet, but the ! is absolutely required and can't be replaced where it is used.

My web hosting is Net Solutions and Im using there own FTP file system. If it goes in compressed I cant uncompress them. I have firezilla to use as FTP upload instead. Would that be better?

okay will try that thank you. Yes and I know its the file cause the error is img/characters/!others2.png failed to load. I can see all files but the ones that have the ! $ as the start of file. Hopefully firezilla will fix it.

Here's the title-screen for the game I'm working on: :LZSgrin:
Oh man I've been struggling with event spawners and Qmovement compatibility for quite a while- went as far as to use a tool just to pick crops :kaocry: but Ritter got their spawner to work with Qmove and I'm screeing! It's still in testing period but just- the feeling of getting over a large gameplay hurdle is a HUGE relief, I'm so thankful to Ritter! It's a cheap paid plugin but totally worth it!
Welp, I just finished my favorite part of RPG making which is creating skills, now onto the tasks I like less so the motivation is lower. At least I'll get to create new ones while designing enemies!
New to MV... Awesome forum, cheers everyone.
