made an update for the modtools
some small tweaks for the HWP Builder (thx @ jackstraw2323)
and the current nightly rulesets added to the modtester
also some (14) additional tests for mapscript were included to catch special cases that go out of the scope of trivial syntax errors

Hi Falko,

I've ran into a weird problem with some graphics files which, as far as I know, work fine in OpenXCom. When I try to "fix palette" in the palette converter, I get a whole bunch of bright green pixels over colors that should remain as they are. I've attached one of the images. I've been using it for a while in game without issue.

Any idea what's happening? Did I mess up the palette of it but somehow OpenXCom displays them properly?

Thanks!

fix palette uses the colors in the palette supsuper/warboy provided for openxcom
if there is no exact match to the color value the pixel is replaced with color0
if the images work fine there is no need for fixpallette
if youhave an armor try setpalette (battlescape) that resets the colors of the image pallete to the ones provided

Hi Falko, I want to report a minor problem with the sprite maker:
1) select and downloaded cyber template
2) little modification (attached)
3) used "splitme" for the sprite (attached)
4) run the game

The new cyberdisk has a couple of  pixels over his head that belong to the bottom animation.

Thanks for your work!

Sorry for the threadomancy, just wanted to communicate that the tools site is down.

I messaged Falko, I hope it reaches him. I mean, we literally can't mod without these tools! At least not seriously.

Any updates on this? Since the spriteconverter is so fucking needed.

Man, I'm so happy to see you alive.
You didn't respond to emails or Skype :)

And it's absolutely great to have your tools back, too. Modding units doesn't exist without them.

hi,

how to use world editor with new engine to proces cities ? (mission zones instead of cities) without need to edit it manually everytime world is being updated.

Thanks
