I'm not quite sure if I'm posting in the right place, but anyway, my game is set in a pseudo-late medieval/early renaissance world (original, I know) and I want everything to look right.  The RTP's castle wall tiles (or what I assume are supposed to be castle walls) don't really look right.  They look like a modern brick wall - they're far too even. The bricks used on real castles had somewhat rounded corners.  Something like this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SDJ_Harlech_Castle_Gatehouse.jpg

I'm having a little bit of trouble making them look like bricks and not like gray puke.  Does anyone have any advice? I suppose the easiest answer would be to buy the Medieval Castles tile pack, but I've already bought a lot of stuff and want to avoid that route for a bit.

In File Manager, go to Tilesets.
Export "Outside_A4" to (your game folder)/Graphics/Tilesets
Open the exported "Outside_A4" with your favorite image editor (I use Paint.NET)
Go where your undesired bricks are and edit it to your fitting.
If ya don't want to do such I'll see what i can do-- just reply

Thinking a bit laterally, Candacis has a wall in her Viking set here which might be what you're looking for.

Do you know the terms of use for these?  This is a new artist to me.

There's nothing on the site about usage rights. You could email the author for permission but it's dated waaay back to Oct 2010 so it's possible the author is long gone, but I think as long as you credit him in your Graphics and put a link to The Mana World you should be ok. His moniker is in the tileset.

Here's his about page: https://mruk.wordpress.com/about/

After a few days of screwing with GIMP I think I might have gotten the look I'm going for.  Right now it's pretty rough, but it can always be edited.  Thanks everybody.  When I get something complete I'll post it.

For a long time I always consider XP soundtracks as the best one.
Just listened to some of MZ tracks from the free version.
It's... Quite mindblowing. xD
Only listened to the battles, towns, and fields.
But I'm sure the rest are equally good. :D
What do you guys want to see for the new Jump into Javascript? A continuation of the rpg_objects, or would you prefer a "lesson 0" where I go back to the absolute basics of Javascript and cover the fundamentals of the language and its construction?
Hey RPG members!!

How do you finish projects? Some new game developers start off strong but end up losing momentum. What keeps you motivated while working on new projects?
Feeling wee sleepy.. ZzzZ
So many threads to move to the right place. My post count is awesome, but 95% of it is due to moving things.
