I've been having trouble extracting the maps and art assets- whenever i extract/unzip the rar file the folders are all empty?

I get the error: Unable to load Map - Nurfenpurf's Bedroom in the fantasy grounds console when I try to load verse 1

Of note, the apostrophe in the image title is replaced by an unknown character square in the console. How do I fix this?

I have been DMing these at my local adventures league and as a new DM I have to say both of these were so well written.
I had not gotten a well written module before But it was so easy to find info I didn’t feel it necessary to even use a highlighter.
In fact while I was actually running the game, I realized that I had not read the page that details how to get into the temple, and right there with my players waiting I read it for the first time. It took me 2 minutes and I only made 1 mistake. I wish all modules were written this well.
Also, I really want to know what is up with the “chosen one” story award. Seriously, “may the gods show mercy on their souls” What the heck is going to happen? I need to know. I am looking forward to more modules from you not just the heir of orcus stuff. Thank you.

Thank you for the kind words! I hope Verse III and beyond doesn’t disappoint! (Coming to DMSGUILD in fall 2019!)

Hello to all! I have purchased both modules separately before, is there anything different from the original version?

Carlos, this has a new section on backgrounds, a new layout, and a sneak peek of Verse III. I’ve included all of this in the full preview. Mostly this is a nice PoD version for hard and soft cover, but I’ve also made it available in PDF for those who wish to have that as well. So, my advice to to check out the full preview and see what those new features are. I wanted to make that fully accessible to previous buyers via the preview as well.

Hope this helps!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
