A: This topic shouldn't be posted twice.

B: This topic should be in the JCS forum, I believe.

C: Make sure your bmp isn't 16 bit. J2Ts must be 8 bit.

Use a program like PaintShopPro or the like.

And use "save as" choose .bmp and you should be able to set the format to 8 bit.

You might be dissapointed in what colors you get after this action. Good luck with it.

And don't mess up the stuff, because your fur, tileset and all goodies in your level will become an awful colour.

Unless you use remap palette (ick) or make your own palette.



Of course, using remap palette can be useful if you don't use more than.. um.. I forget how many.. 100-some colours. Or if you follow some tutorial I made, but never really "finished". (There's another section I need to do in it. :/)



Also make sure the image is 320 pixels wide, but that probably isn't the case.

It's 161 colours (256 minus the 95 fixed colours), IceMAN. And NOBODY: smart colour reducing is the key to success there

Its hard to do things in low amounts of color well but it can be done. I mean JJ2 has all animations and main events in about 90 colors.



Or look at old nintendo games they had 16 colors max I believe.

Don't look at me, I download tilesets, I don't make them.
