TilesetPal is an application made for easing the process of color reduction from a 24-bit image to an 8-bit palettized image, particularly for Jazz Jackrabbit 2 tilesets. With proper use of TilesetPal, color reduction becomes a breeze, and yields much better results than using the Remap Colors feature in JCS.
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
Unzip. TilesetPal.exe should be able to be run from anywhere, so long as the computer you’re running it on has the necessary requirements. All you need to do is run TilesetPal.exe.
It should be obvious, but read the Readme.
These are the files that were included in this release:
TilesetPal is dedicated to the grand tileset maker and my internet twin Disguise for his 21st birthday.
This program is great. It fixes one of the most annoying problems you’ll face while making a tileset – color reduction. Unless you’re really good at it, color reduction will result in one of three things – a slightly worse looking set, a much worse looking set, and a downright repulsive looking set. With the help of TilesetPal, you can make a slightly worse looking set in a matter of minutes, palette events included.
I tested this program on a tileset that used about 6,000 colors, and it looked almost perfect when finished. It took about two minutes in all, too. With this program, not only can you do easy color reduction for tilesets, but it will also help to make basic palettes for your sets so you don’t have to do the annoying copy & paste work with other programs. This means people no longer have an excuse for not including palette events in their tilesets. Yay! =D
The only major problem I found with this program is that it has somewhat buggy .pcx support. I loaded a .pcx file, and it got completely distorted. I converted it to .bmp and then it worked fine. Also, having to download that file from Microsoft was an inconvenience, but nothing too bad. I can’t say the same for people with 56K though, since the file was 20-something megabytes.
In conclusion, this program is the best thing to happen to tileset makers since DTR. Quick and easy, useful, and it works great. Couldn’t ask for more.
The included palettes are also very helpful, yay for them :).
As for larks comment about the microsoft .net framework. Everyone is going to have to download it eventually. It’s a great thing because it works cross platform, I already had it installed myself, and I should think most people will have it installed .. at least somewhat soon.
MSCOREE.DLL Is not way for my computer!!
(Unsupported rating (6) removal. I’m not quite sure what you’re trying to say, but it sounds as if you can’t find a .dll to get the program to work… if so, why did you rate it? ~Violet)
This utility file makes colour reduction as easy as drawing a cloud in MSPaint!! It has palettes for all palette events, which are easy to use and require no palette work to put them in you tileset palettes. An absolute must-have for 24-bit tileset makers!![Unsupported rating (10.0) clearance. There was not enough support given for the rating. – Cooba]
Yuck, i was making a tile set. i used this thing and then BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
it’s turned to a pile of peuk. More than half my colors dissapeared and then worst of all the stuff that you should be able to go through ( empty spots) they are solid!!
i don’t get this program,i read the “read me” and everything and I still dont get
it, Could you possibly post up a video of how to use it? That would make it a whole lot easier for me
Hmm, i like this program BUT if i reduce colors, i get if i use this BMP for my tileset, if i play, the color black (BG color for tilesets) at EACH in BMP black colored fields…
Why this is not INVISIBLE?
What i do wrong?
But else is this program VERY good! 9.2/10
EDIT: I found the problem! So i give now 10/10. Make EVERY TIME the first color of the Pallete BLACK!
Then it should work.
PS.: Sorry for my bad english, i’m germany and not very good in english…
This program is good, but not incerdible. To reduce colors, you can use “paint” :P.
But ithink, that program will by useful
