Hi @ShadowZDaniel - most usually that's an issue for older video cards and/or older drivers. Make sure you have the very latest video card drivers and it if still happens then yeah we're going to need computer specs + log file that'll be in the game data directory (on Windows under C:\Users[user]\Saved Games\Terasology) :-)

Able to get us your log file, @p-lo ? That would be very useful :-)

Again likely to be a video card issue, lots of laptops, especially older, have issues running the game

it says
Unfortunately, we don't support that file type.
Try again with a PNG, GIF, or JPG.

Key lines are:

17:09:16.638 [Thread-18] ERROR o.t.r.r.DefaultRenderingProcess - FrameBuffer: sceneOpaque, has caused a GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_FORMATS_EXT exception
17:09:16.640 [Thread-18] ERROR o.t.r.r.DefaultRenderingProcess - FrameBuffer: sceneOpaquePingPong, has caused a GL_FRAMEBUFFER_INCOMPLETE_FORMATS_EXT exception

I am guessing support for:

GL11.glTexImage2D(GL11.GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, ARBTextureFloat.GL_RGBA16F_ARB, width, height, 0, GL11.GL_RGBA,
                        ARBHalfFloatPixel.GL_HALF_FLOAT_ARB, (ByteBuffer) null);

is spotty on older cards (and intel "cards").

Yes, do extract it. It can go anywhere (except in a folder with a ! in its
name).

How'd you get the game set up before ? You might want to just ask your parents to extract the new version.

If you had the launcher set up you could get the latest versions more easily

https://github.com/MovingBlocks/TerasologyLauncher/releases/download/v1.3.1/TerasologyLauncher.zip

If you try that (with your parents' help) make sure to set it to grab the latest unstable/develop build, which is what has the possible fix

Closing as likely old video card related. Possibly we might improve support for older cards in the future.
