Same, I found out that when your saving it to your stash you cancel and draw one line and quickly erase it then press done! Don't PRESS SAVE! And when it's uploading the comment thing below with the emotion should have ZzZzZ not something else. :D hopes this helps in the future! :3 (sorry I couldn't answer this sooner)

God freaking damnit this Muro is the most excruciating program I have ever had to use. Combine that with a shoddy internet because of where I live and you get a painfully intense experience. I've spent hours on my submission only to have the whole thing corrupt itself. Freaking fantastic. Please never use this damn program as a requirement ever again.

Muro no longer works for me, I've already sent in one entry but wish to create another, I'm thinking of just going onto photoshop but I really don't want to go against any unwritten rules.

I'm thinking of recording what I do in photoshop and putting it on youtube and upload through Muro if the program even decide to open (Muro is literally stuck on the opening loading page) if Muro opens then I'll work within the program but its so painful honestly.

I've seen people using the same description questions, like 'freaky flaw' and 'favourite colour, food', where do you get this from?

Under 'Step 4' there, in the blue 'Tip' box ;) They're just guidelines to help flesh out the character's personality more.
