Can't seem to apply textures

I am learning to use Blender 2.49 working through tutorials such as Noob to Pro. I am up to learning textures but I can’t seem to get them to apply to my model.

I create a new material in editing. Then I go to the shading panel and to the texture buttons adding what ever texture I want. Then I hop to materials buttons and fix anything there. It shows up fine in the preview window but … I go to the edit screen and press appy in the links and materials and … I get my color and nothing else.

What am I missing? I seem to be following all steps in the tutorials but something is wrong.

Thank you for your help.

Attach your blend (Go Advanced and use the paperclip icon) so we can see what you need to correct.


Ok but there really isn’t anything to see since I don’t seem to be able to attach the actual blend

you may not be able to see it in the 3D window, but it will come out in the render.
