Hi

I'm looking for DATimage of "Glinkie Games" to create xml, the site of MegaShocked is down.

If you can tell me a site or send me a zip.

I'm trying to convert my sprite boards with buildchar, but I still have the same error.

Here is the content of my chardata

## Scrollers - 5 items

Processing 1 of 5: gfx\lvl1front1.png / lvl1front1
Loading file(s)... Le paramètre n'est pas valide.

Voici le contenu de mon chardata

My sprite boards are multiples of 16, and I have max 16 colors, magenta ff00ff at slot 0 in my palettes.

Here is a zip containing all my sprites boards and my chardata.xml , there is also the first plan of my first stage in png without limitation of colors.
Otherwise it is divided into 4 parts of 15colors +ff00ff.

I had to translate your message my French is terrible! Everything sounds right! I have a guest this weekend but will post a link to DATimage as soon as I get a moment. I will also pull your files and have look. Sorry for the delay!

Buildchar expects 24bpp files, this one is 4bpp.
