What have you tried?


It appears that the gentleman thought C++ was extremely difficult and he was overjoyed that the machine was absorbing it; he understood that good C++ is difficult but the best C++ is well-nigh unintelligible.

Use 8-bit alpha maks which define the color changing regions. In the default version of the sprite, color the changing areas as white. In the pixel shader, modulate the sprite texel with the desired unit color and then lerp between the original sprite color and the modulated sprite color according to the alpha map.

 

Cheers!
