Realtime text (2.49), one tiny and extremely frustrating issue

Hi, I am trying to follow the tutorial at found at:

Step 5-8 is impossible, because no matter what I do, under Editing mode, the texture tab just says “no active faces”.
How can I fix this?

it seems you didn´t unwrap your object first.


Works now, thanks.

Did you actually click and select the face in face mode?

Hi, when you switch in edit mode (tab) you must select all vertices with the “a” key, then you can unwrap the plane.
