[21:23:02] <Dominus> Yuv422: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wmxcsy2069d11vl/custom_tiles.bmp?dl=0
[21:23:17] <Dominus> This is a simple edit (but took me long enough to get a proper workflow)
[21:23:26] <Dominus> : I only remapped the red palette index to the brown colors for dirt tiles
[21:23:37] <Dominus> everything fancy I tried resulted in Gimp using the color cycle colors of the palette and worse stuff
[21:24:05] <Dominus> because Nuve only likes indexed bitmaps and hates RGB ones :)
[21:24:13] <Dominus> Thanks for adding this possibility :)

[21:29:24] <Dominus> Yuv422: this leads me to another question, possible feature request: is it possible for Nuvie to read the data dir from the Nuvie.app but also from another default folder (like Library/Application Support/Nuvie Support/data)?
[21:30:10] <Dominus> we added this ability to Exult some time ago to be able to bundle stuff in the app but also to add to the default folder
[21:35:44] <Yuv422> Hey Dominus
[21:35:54] <Yuv422> yeah that sounds like a good idea
[21:36:06] <Yuv422> I’ll add it to my todo list
[21:37:09] <Yuv422> yeah working with palette based images can be a real hassle
[21:37:20] <Yuv422> especially when they do palette cycling
[21:37:24] <Yuv422> ;-)
[21:37:25] <Dominus> yes
[21:38:03] <Yuv422> have you tried using Graphx2?
[21:38:15] <Yuv422> it’s pretty good at palette manipulation
[21:38:34] <Dominus> no, I only struggled with gimp
[21:38:45] <Yuv422> it’s good
[21:38:52] <Yuv422> but it does take some getting used to
[21:39:03] <Yuv422> because it is an old amiga keyboard based app
[21:39:14] <Yuv422> so it works best if you know all the commands
[21:39:26] <Yuv422> you can find colours
[21:39:45] <Yuv422> and reassign all coloured pixels to another palette index for example
[21:40:56] <Dominus> sounds good
[21:43:50] <Yuv422> I’ve got to go now
[21:43:51] <Yuv422> cya
[21:44:04] <Yuv422> your tiles look good :)
[21:44:06] <Dominus> bye, thanks again
