A common mistake is to save the wallmask as a jpg, this causes some blurry gray to appear on the border between the black and white rendering the wallmask broken. Garrison Builder compiles the wallmask (as a png), background (as a png), and entities you placed into one PNG file. Those three things are embedded in that one image file, obviously if any portion were messed up or it was saved as a different file type (jpg, gif, bmp, whatever) then Gang Garrison can't read the file, it can only read compiled PNG files.

You have to load a background to test the map, if you just wanna test the wallmask load the wallmask as the background too.
