hi, i edited clock numbers with paint.net and saved them as both 24bit or 32bit, but on Watchface.exe command window there are some pink lines saying something about color display, i didnt change the monochrome or add any colors (the original ones was 32bit), and after flashing resources the numbers are a little bugged there are some very small horizontal spikes coming out of them, am i missing something on saving .png files?

Hey, as far as I know, you should save them as 32 bit files (just like the original ones). Also, make sure you don't use any other colors than black and white (no grey or colors in between black and white). You can only use 100% black or 100% white. Also, keep in mind that you can't change the resolution / size of the icons.

yep thats right, the problem was transparency (alpha channel), each pixel should be #FF00000 or #FFFFFFFF, the band did make anything below #80****** to #00****** and anything above it to #FF******, that was the reason for those little pixel spikes (y)
