I wanted to import some bonus title screens from the rmmv-essentials set. The problem is that they don't show up in my database. Importing them with the resource manager seems to work fine though:
(Titles that I imported are: Floating City, Evil Throne and Hammer)

When I try to change my title screen in the database, they don't show up:

I don't really understand why is this. I hope someone can help.

Title screen must be in PNG format in order MV/MZ editor can see and use it.
Also, make sure imported images are in your game project files, not in MV main directory.

I can't tell more, because I manually import files into project. So I don't use Resource Manager

@Soulrender the problem has nothing to do with formats or how to copy, because the resource manager does nothing else than copy the files into the project.

@Venex the problem are your filenames.
MV and MZ create HTML5-based games, and those require filenames to follow networking rules.
A browser always has problems loading files that break those rules.

and one of those rules is "no spaces" (which is why spaces get replaced by %20 in error messages, the browser simply can't handle them even there.
Remove the spaces from those filenames and they will become available in your game.

The editor simply filters them - and that is the reason why for example the default pictures are "SF_City" and not "SF City" - the underscore is allowed under networking rules, spaces are not.

(there are other rules, but that is the only one I see broken in your screenshots)


EDIT:
That also counts for the place where your project is stored, if those folders break networking rules any file can become problematical.

I tried both solutions and for some reason, converting the title screens to png worked for me. Renaming the images didn't work, I don't know why. I can even use them in RPG Maker with spaces in between.

that is because Windows has an override that tries to force spaces down the browsers.
But that override has been known to fail sometimes, and it will fail if you deploy to non-windows systems (mostly because those other systems handle the space problem in a different way)

3am me: So how do you feel about a character inviting their own character portrait to a tea party? =D

I turned 17 two months ago and I feel like I've grown (personality-wise) more in this 1 year than all the 16 years I had lived combined.
Ugh, I may have been cumbersomely eventing a bunch of stuff I could have easily done changing the tileset "Passage (4 dir)" and "Ladder" options. Oops :D
I have no idea why some of the program "splash screen" always on top. E.g, RMMZ loading screen stuck on the top blocking anything I want to do until it fully loaded. What is even the purpose?
One of the secret places in the game.
