I'm quite confident GGale lacks any such feature. We'll have to do it the hard way.  :(
Um...what exactly is the "hard way"? I'm kind of confused where to input the hex/deci values mentioned in this thread.

You should enter the RGB values (those that should be divideable by 8) in here:

In GGale you can set the color depth to 15bit color.

The you can set the RGB value to anything and GGale will paint with the nearest valid color.

To see the real RGB used, just pick the color from the image.

I found this off of wiki-pedia. Some may find this useful.



I'm pretty sure this has all the useable colors here. Since this is the exact palette that the Game boy color used. If I'm wrong here please let me know.

Actually no, that palette does not contain even half of all the possible colors. The bottom area, being 255x65, contains only 16575 pixels, less than 32768 (for which a 256x128 area would be needed); moreover, it contains repeated colors.
This, however, does not mean that it is not useable - indeed, it is much more useable than those I posted above.

I'm having a go at this challenge, but I've hit a point of indecision. Typical.



(1) shows where the foliage and gravestones will be place, (2) shows the cut-off point for player movement, and (3) shows the general area of movement. Question - what sort of textures should I be going for concerning (3)? More grass, soil/dirt, a brick footpath, or something else?

Edit: I should add that the only things considered 'complete' in this picture are the gravestones and foliage. Everything else is expendable!

Been a while...
(Hope these work, I'm using a new location to store them. If they don't work, I'll move them when I get home).






I had to register for this board just to say how awesome I thought these were.  AWESOME!!!!

I thought I'd give this a go  :)



I know I'm missing Crais and Pilot! Actually, I think I'll do some screens, if I can find the time. But for now, I think Jool and Sikozu are pretty cute. What do you guys think?

omfg farscape <3 <3 <3 <3

One thing that strikes me as off are the legs. From the characters I've seen in SOBS the legs are usually colored, but you've got a kind of lego thing going on, and the poses in some of them are lego too. Though there does seem to be an abundance of black leather pants in Farscape... Scorpy's head could probably do with more face, less cooling suit. I don't know what's going on with Jool but Sikozu is awesome!
