Sprites

Recommended Posts

I''ve noticed that all of your sprites in the examples are pcx files. When I open these in Photoshop 5.0 they show up as indexed pcx files, something that I can''t seem to get photoshop to create from scratch. I always have to open one of yours and paste into it. What program are you using to create these pcx files? What other types of files will work as sprites, I''ve tried 24 bit bmp, jpg, rgb pcx, and none have worked? Is there any way to set the transparent color, or are we stuck with absolute black? Thanks, Norb

Use either a TGA with an alpha channel or a DDS with an alpha channel. Set the parts you don''t want to see as black on the alpha channel and the sprite part as white on the alpha channel and you have yourself a sprite.
