amazing tutorial! I never used graphics gale, only gimp, so that's the only part that I feel like I will need to dl and learn in order to make use of this. But this opens up many doors for doing tile edits that were previously closed for me - thank you Avery! You can see even from that screenshot, this style of roofs just looks SO much better.

What I love about graphicsgale is, is how slim it is. It does just what you need for pixel art, and besides scaling where you have to tick off the "smooth" box, everything is done without any blurring.
You can do similar in Gimp actually:

(German Gimp on that Computer, but I guess you can get the right things by looking at the symbols and stuff).
Important here is that you have the Y to -144 (the height of the piece you want to alter) and that you set the Interpolation to None.
The Y Value is the original height of your inserted roof, and it alters if you want another angle.
Personally, I prefer the way Graphicsgale handles it, cause there the inserted value does not depend on the size of the inserted picture, but on the resulting angle :) That is why that is my program of choice for that task. If I want to do another angle in Gimp, I need to calculate the value to get it right, in Graphicsgale that is more straightforward.

I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
anyone know of a place I can promote my game? sorta like game awards but for indie devs, like a place where I can drop a trailer and like stir up some hype

That moment when you came up with a very good game title, but when you searched it, it has already been used... T.T
Crazy week. My anxiety decides to go nutz. Worse thing about it is that it causes me to lose focus on my work. I was able to leave early one day and take a nap. Seemed to help. How is everyone? Boosters coming soon here. Get my life back on track again.
