Hi, I noticed that the MZ RTP is pretty much all using indexed colors.

So my question is, if I create an image, for example, a sprite or an overlay, do I also need to convert these images and leave them indexed (256 colors), to match the RTP?

The doubt arose because when converting some of these images, they lose a lot of details, transparency effects are like blocks and are not exactly like those already included in RTP, which even indexed manage to maintain a good quality.

no, because the color number of the engine has nothing to do with a color index directly.

if you look at the windows picture in the system tab, you'll see a sequence of color sqares. THAT is where the numbers go, those twenty or so squares are linked to the numbers used by the color textcodes.

Oh I understood. I had this doubt because I want to maintain style consistency with RTP.

Just thought I'd share how my battlers are looking for my 4 main characters. From left to right... Ashlyn the brave fighter, Lizzabelle the peaceful mage, Suki the thief, Saedra the not-so-peaceful mage.

ok by this weekend I WILL finally need alpha testers for Backstage: murdered sleep because it's got enough content at this point I want to get it on Steam Early Access ASAP (2/22/2022 would be a cool release date if I can make it).

By all means volunteer here, sure, but where else should I be looking?
