I haven't used much of 2k3 yet so I wanted to give it ago and made a pretty basic sprite sheet, with the correct dimensions, in Aseprite of this smiley face guy:
SmileMan.png
When I went to put it in the folder to use it, the thumbnail in the database was just completely black and then came up as an "unsupported png" so I went ahead and switched it to index colors in Photoshop to which the sprite finally showed up with its full animations but now it has a white background that takes up the rest of the sprites dimensions even when in game. Once again, its showing up white despite it being a transparent png even after index mode was applied. Did I import it the wrong way? or did I index the colors incorrectly?

^ This. Use Tools > Resource Manager, select CharSet from the list on the left, click Import, select your file, then the "Set Transparent Colour" window will appear, where you can click the background as mentioned. :)

I've developed a habit of thanking cleaning ladies for their work.
Sorry Aerith... I will abandon your shoes... :guffaw:
Spent a whole bunch of time today reworking the area in the video because someone said it was too illusory. So I reworked it so it changes less, moved the grass up to the same level as the player.... And found enough extra resources to make the grass moves when the player touches it. Also lots more water, because it looks amazing. I'll probably put up a short updated video later today.
I never noticed how NOISY birds can be in the morning..
The worst part of writing the thesis is getting to a point where it's nearly done and you feel like an 8th-grader could've written something on that level.
