Hello there! i downloaded a new sprite today and put it my list file
and all the other stuff i needed to do but when i put my rom into pixi it gave me this:

Enter a ROM file name, or drag and drop the ROM here: SMW.smc
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::invalid_argument'
what(): stream error

could somebody help me out? thanks!
Is your rom in the same folder as pixi's list.txt file? Alternatively, you can just drag and drop the rom file in the prompt window when it asks for it, and it should work.
i tried it but i still got the same message :/
but thanks anyway!
and yea my list.txt is in the same folder as my rom
would you know what the message means though?
and has it happened to you before?
So today i figured out that this only happens when i insert a .json file is there still a way to get this to work?
json files should work fine with pixi, so maybe the file you're using has something wrong in it? Can you share it here?
Here are the files i used


Celeste - Moving Platform - PIXI

these are the ones that gave me the error message and both used .json files

The stream error means there is a syntax error causing the file parsing to fail. That error can be either in the .json file or in the actual list.txt file (sadly, PIXI does not provide much information on where the error is).

One suggestion would be to try opening the JSON files in Pixi's CFG editor and resaving it to see if that fixes any formatting issues.
