Feel free to let us know what you find. I've been spinning my wheels off and on over this and can't get anywhere.

Not sure what you are referring to. 60fps stuff? If so thats not what I am doing. Just redoing textures so they dont look like ass.

Yeah, but you should totally help with that anyways.  That way, you can be the coolest guy and everyone will be your friend.

Yeah, problem is that the texture animations move too fast in 60 fps and the only way to fix that is to increase the textures and add more pointers. I just can't figure out where that's happening.

As far as I am aware only admins can use the html bbcode tag. One of the perks of the job i suppose

Pretty good for showcasing in game action indeed. That Search light spell effect is looking pretty good, by the way.

Reminds me of Regen, except it's green. I reckon Hi-Potion or Regen if I had to guess.

Cool thanks. Now that I can see it in action I may be able to figure out what it is supposed to look like.

Progress update. These are slow going as there are over 20 different palettes.

Thanks! I was wondering: is it at all possible to speed up this process by taking a given palette and then make a "Colorize" operation (or a Hue modification) on Photoshop (or equivalent)?

I tried that, but the problem is some of them arent just color shifts. But i have automated the process as much as possible.
