So I made this custom wall sprite in Photoshop:



However, when I go to put it in game and have to convert it to 256 color, it looks like crap.

Anyone know a way to fix this?

Thanks.

You can do it using Adam's WDC tool, according to this link: http://diehardwolfers.areyep.com/viewtopic.php?t=2148

The WDC help has a tutorial on changing the pallette. Version 1.13 says:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Changing the game palette

The game palette is stored in the GAMEPAL.OBJ file found in the OBJ subfolder in your source code's folder. To change the palette:
Open the Project Information window
Click the "..." button on the "GamePal.OBJ" line and select your GAMEPAL.OBJ file
Click the Edit button right beside that and select your JASC palette file (.PAL)
Recompile your code
That should be all you need to do.

NOTE: Some of your graphics might look strange in the game if you used a different palette while compiling the graphics files.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Get WDC from here: http://winwolf3d.dugtrio17.com/

Hope this helps, cause that's all I know! Wink

Happy New Year!
Andy

The answer is simple: There is no unified method, because Photoshop is like a canvas IRL. There are so many different methods for doing something, that unless we know exactly what it is you want to do we can't help.

I see you wish to create the ripple effect on the flag: let me finish eating and posting some stuff over the net, and I'll get back to you with a method you'll be able to do (even though I use paint shop pro, I gurantee the methods will be similar).

All I want to know is simply how to set up Photoshop to use the Wolf palette so that I don't have the problem I had after I finished this sprite.

Simple... Open a new graphic window... and then look for a "Load Palette" command in PhotoShop (I use PaintShop Pro, so I assume the technique is the same). Find the Wolfenstein palette (which is available in WDC along with a few other palettes) and open it. It should change the palette of your new blank image to a 256 colour palette in the Wolf3d colour scheme. Then start drawing.

To change an existing graphic, you just load that image and then load the palette. It will change the colours you see on the screen so be prepared to do a little editing to your graphic.

Hope that helps...

I can't seem to find the "load palette" function in Photoshop CS, can someone tell me where this is?
