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.

If you get everything you want, when you want it, it kills your creativity. If you never get anything you want, you're forced to be creative with what you have.

I think I've got my hero designs pretty much finialised ( still got some tweaks. ) In the end it'll be the four outfit colour variants with four different skintones.
