    I'm having a problem with Pokemon Essentials Version 17.2 (Pokémon Essentials v17.2 2017-10-15)
    So when I start the game and I press the title screen to come to the menu is always this error:

    Pokemon Essentials:
    Script 'SpriteWindows_sprites' line 30: RuntimeError occurred.

    file name is nil

    That's the text that always comes.

      class AnimatedBitmap
      def initialize(file,hue=0)
      raise "filename is nil" if file==nil
      if file[/^\[(\d+)\]/] # Starts with 1 or more digits in brackets,hue)

      This exception comes up when you get, as I see, something missing in Graphics Folder. What specific - I don't know.

      It's most likely a party icon. You probably have another project which is also called "Pokémon Essentials", and those two save files overlap. You then you have a Pokémon in one of those projects which you don't have in the other, and therefore it crashes your game.

      What you can do is make sure every project you work in is has a unique name.
      You can change the name of your project in RMXP by going into Game -> Change Title:
