Changing Colors

Asked by Bullet on 2012-02-16

I've been playing wargus and decided to start making a mod, starting with the graphics. I started making my own buildings and started replacing them, but for some reason in game some colors started flickering on it, so I thought it might be too high bit and fixed the building, then I added another one but now all the icons are flickering too. Do I just need to simply render the building to look warcraft 2 style, or is there a way to fix this?

graphism should use pallette.
some colors in the palette are reserved for player color, "color cycling" (mainly for the water).

(according to stratagus.lua
DefinePlayerColorIndex(208, 4) -- 208, 209, 210, 211
AddColorCyclingRange(38, 47) -- water
AddColorCyclingRange(205, 207) -- building
AddColorCyclingRange(240, 244) -- icon
)

The same issue happened to me when I added a second icon. It seems that the problem was not with my icon itself, but that I replaced icon 171, and without it the pallette may no longer be saved correctly. When I added my two icons to the end of the icons.png file instead, everything worked fine, and the issue was solved.

Can you help with this problem?
