Anyone had this problem? My PCX cameos are in RGB 256 colours and yet they are not appearing ingame. Writing the relevant tag in caps and/or with "" and putting the cameos in either ecache or expandmd .mix files did nothing.

You need to use indexed images.

Quick steps(Photoshop) :
Image -> Mode -> Indexed Colour
And use a custom palette with 256 colours.
-Forced Black and White
-Transparency checked.

After that, in your art.ini make sure to use CameoPCX= instead of CAMEO= and write for example: initico.pcx
