Missing texture in appended file

Hi, everyone. I’m working on my first big game in the blender game engine, and I’ve run into a problem that I can’t figure out. I have all my game characters in their own respective .blend files, and I want to append them into the main game file. When I append the group, however, the model has no texture. Do I have to add the texture to the group with the model? And if so how? I’d greatly appreciate any help.

EDIT: Ok, so I found out that when I append the character, the texture is still there, but for some reason it won’t show up in the 3d view. Also, here are some screenshots.

Here’s my turkey character in it’s own file:

And here’s the same turkey appended into the main game:

I finally figured out the problem. It was so obvious that I should have noticed it a long time ago, but I’ll post the solution in case someone else has the same issue.

When I appended the file, the texture slot thingy (I don’t really know what it’s called) was deleted for some reason. I just made a new one. It’s highlighted in red in the picture.
