    @TheoAllen I'd like to; believe me. The sad truth is that there already aren't enough hours in the day for my existing to-do list. Additionally, your reference would require a near-complete rewrite of my code. I'm not specifically against that (code is old; I'm often amazed it's functional), but again, there's that time-in-the-day thing. Not enough of it.

    The main reason I did things as I did was I found it easier to process a tileset in individual parts. Also, I didn't want it usable by folks that don't actually have RPG Maker in any given set of tiles, like the XP ones. There are potentially legal ramifications otherwise. I do want to rework things one day, but there's a lot to consider, and ease of use and legal access to materials is near the top of my list.

    Hi! real quick, I was wondering... could you help me figure out how to use it? I just have a bunch of files XD and I don't know where to export them >~<.





    Ohhhh nevermind, I figured out how to run it, Let's ask a different question them XD... How do I add in some tilesets? like just so creations into the box so it fits well into my game? and it isn't like off? this should be the last question, I'm sorry >~<

    Booniebonnie, please avoid double posting, as it is against the forum rules. You can review our forum rules here. Thank you.


    I merged your two posts. I'm not sure I understand your question, though. Are you asking how to add tilesets from RPG Maker into this program, or are you asking how to get your finished tileset from this program into RPG Maker?

    Hi, Great tool! There is one issue I am having though, everything seems to work fine except Building (A3). When I save a tileset using Building (A3) I get an empty file with no data in it. All the other ones work fine but A3 creates a file that is 0kb.

    Oh! Well, that's odd. I will look into it sometime this weekend!

    I'm on windows 10 if that helps, but unfortunately there is no error message to show. Otherwise a fantastic tool! Thanks for making it!

    @lmnop It's fine; I probably goofed something on the saving for that type of tileset. MV, Ace or both btw?

    It seems to be doing it on both MV and Ace.

    Hello, is this a virus? Because my anti-virus says it's one, and I don't know what to do.

    It may trigger an antivirus - likely because it has the capability to read and write files. Literally, though, all it can do is read and write PNG files. So no, not a virus. Just an attempt to make RPG-Maker-ing easier.

    What a great looking tool! I'll be experimenting with this tomorrow :) I've been looking for an easier-than-sakan way of unique-ifying my tilesets, so let's see how this tool performs for my needs ^_^

    This is the result of the so-called "heuristic" search of an anti-virus, which is basically guessing what might be a virus.

    If an antivirus only looks for known viruses, it would be useless - because the most dangerous viruses are the new ones that are not yet analysed.
    To compensate the AV programs look for number sequences that would be identical to tries to infect other programs and the like. But that search can result in false positives as well as detect unknown viruses - after all the same number sequence might be part of a picture and never executed at all.

    So when an AV program reports a possible virus, you need to decide for yourself if that really is an infected program or if it just contains data that causes a false positive.
    And you usually do that by comparing what else is on a given website or how careful it is maintained.
    That is not always perfect (in fact the worse virus I ever had came from an infected antivirus on a magazine CD where it got through the protection of the production before it was identified weeks later), but it is the only thing you could do.

    @Andar Thanks for all the detailed info! I hope that helps put peoples' minds at ease.

    I promise I'm not up to anything nefarious with this tool! I just wanted an easier way to throw together tilesets because endless grid-bound copy-paste in GIMP was a total snooze and not leaving me feeling like I was making productive progress on my project.

    I feel like i may be an idiot but for me the application doesnt open at all. I try running it and it does nothing, no processes in Task Manager and just doesnt work. Anyone know why that may be?

    The program runs in a 64-bit build of the Windows emulator ("wine") for Linux OS. Everything works perfectly. Thank you very much.
