Well, does the BuildChar react to the new images properly?

Wut?
How about giving it a try yourself?


Still too many colors on select tiles. You can't pass straight bitmaps to a tile based system and expect it to work, you have to work on the pictures.

That means, I`ll have to divide images into a parts, then to reduce a colours of this parts, and after that to stick this parts together to the whole image again?

The method is up to you, but your pict must match the hardware specs of 15 colors + transparency per 16*16 tile.

You probably want to put elements on different layers in this case.

VasiliyFamiliya, I never used BuildChar but you should try DATimage to quantize an image.

After passing the images through the DATimage (using only -mtc16 command) BuildChar still complains about color overload in some tiles:

tromb Fichier joint : Se7o
tromb Fichier joint : YE6Z
tromb Fichier joint : Ji7E
tromb Fichier joint : ILDG

An old images by the link has been replaced with an images which are genereted by DATimage.

check 'DATimageReference.pdf'
use '-mtc15' because you can use only 15 colors (15 + transparent = 16colors) per tile

Thank you! The converters works properly now.

But there is a one more important question - how to define the base sprite and palette # during a picture initializing?

I found an information in the DATimage document that the frames for FMV demo sample was taken by using Adobe After Effects. Please, prompt me, how to "slice" a video to frames in AAE - I`m going to convert some own videos to NG.
