V3 of my Deckstar conversion. Made some changes. If you find glitches let me know. to lazy to make an example level. Make one later..maybe….
Ok first thing how can it be yours when…
1: The colors look correct?
2: There are jazz 1 end signs?
3: There’s non of the green tiles?
I didn’t steal yours the top section is what’s included in jazz 1 and I added onto that. Also you never reply to my emails so I gave up and did my own. I didn’t steal anything from you so thank you and good bye.
Edit: I did respond to your letters and I did compile the tileset and I had the same problem. I’ll bet you anything this problem happened because the mask had no pallet loaded into it. (Since I used remap pallet) I was only making suggestions so please drop this! I’m trying to get my name out and become a respected level maker and tileset maker. I didn’t steal anything from you and I didn’t know how to fix the problem so I gave you subjections on how to improve the tileset as the one you made looked like crap. Once we fixed up the tileset then I was going to help you with the problem. I was only trying to get you a higher rating. So you see you have nothing against me and I didn’t do anything to you. I did what you told me, I had the same problems and I tried to help you improve it. If you didn’t want my help in that area all you needed to do was tell me that you didn’t want my help. So if this continues on and on for some reason I’ll get an admin on this and see what he thinks.
PS: And again I DIDN“T steal anything from you tileset! This tileset is 100% my work.
Edit2: Response to PT: Everything’s been settled. I made the tileset and RedJazz agrees. Ok? I’m the author.
Finally, now we have a JJ1 Deckstar tileset to use and it’s better than the other Decksta one that existed before as it has all the animations needed to look like a JJ1 level, including the flashing arrows and the monitors. There are also V & H poles and Vines which can be used. The JJ2 style flames have also been added which would be useful as torches or Hurt events.
Tileset also has the JJ2 scenery blocks which are a must.
Tileset looks weird with all the spacing but that’s OK.
The tileset is easy to use and it’s easy to find the tiles that you want to insert in the level.
The masking in this tileset is also very good, no jagged edges or any other stuff like that.
Overall, this is a very good tileset and as a rating, I’ll give this 8.5.
A Textured Background could also be useful in this set.
SUMMARY – PROS
1. Contains all the tiles needed to make a good level.
2. Has all the animations required including flashing arrows and monitors.
3. Can use V/H poles and vines.
4. Contains the necessary JJ2 style scenery blocks.
5. No masking errors.
1. No Textured Background
2. Dunno any other cons in this tileset :P
(Was gonna do a Quick Review but ended up with too many chars, so thought I might as well do a full review.)

I think this is a very good tileset by Sonicnathan 1. The set is good, but needs an example level. I told you about some other things [textured bg, doubled arrows, etc.] in my pm, so no repeating necessary.
Colors were excellent, masking good as well, gave me the feeling of being in Deckstar. But, not a huge amount of fluff tiles, [I did not say NONE, I said NOT A LOT] and only one type of background make me sad. It seems to be missing something, and this might be it.
There was an example level in the previous one, but not this one. That can be hard, as I had to place tiles in a usable level myself. Still, good set, worth a dl.
How could you?! How?! Oh how?!
For those who don’t know, SonicNathan and I had a deal where I would send him my already 1.5 year old Deckstar conversion. But this never happened. :(
Anyway, it’s a good conversion. But it looks like it’s based on mine since the first 12 rows are identical.
But I’m STILL the owner of the first one!
*Response to SonicNathan:* From what I have in my “electronic mailbox”, you did never actually compile the tileset but instead only sent thousands of emails with suggestions on how to do it better. Thanks, but I never asked fot those. I only wanted you to compile my tileset. With that I could have finally done something good for the JJ2 community, which I never did with my level crapware.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
