    Hi. I was wondering, how would I convert VX Ace Parallax tiles into tileset format? I found some good ones, but I find parallaxing too difficult. (I'm not asking how to parallax, I want to know how to convert Parallax tiles into a tileset.)

    For those who are curious, I am using these tiles.

    (If someone could convert those into tileset format, that would be even better, that's not what I'm asking though :D)

    You open up GIMP or equivalent, make a new image 512 x 512 and then put those tiles on it in the way you want to make a new tile sheet. Nothing else needed.

    Basically you'll have to make a tilesheet with the correct grid and then move the parallax elements into that grid one by one, eliminating the distance that is usually include in parallax collection (this distance is needed for better element selection while parallax mapping, but prevents the editor from correct tile selecting).

    A lot of work requiring fine control, but nothing really difficult if you know how to use a grid and snap to grid functions.

    The correct grid is 32x32, right?

    Thank you!
    What about A tiles? (A1, A2, A3, A4, and A5.)

    Open up the Help file. It tells you all that. A files are on a 32 x 32 grid, but have a different size of tile sheet, and are formatted differently. No parallax tile will ever go on A1-A4, but you might (rarely) put one on A5.

    If in doubt, open up a default A tab tile sheet in Gimp and see how it is done.

    I'm throwing in a word of warning here - the wall and roof tiles are not formatted for the A sheets, so you cannot simply cut and paste them into an A sheet. It would take some work of cutting them apart, placing the pieces in appropriately and possibly editing a bit here and there to make sure they autotile properly.
