    I doubt about using SetPixel() function. It seems like a slow wrapper function. It's not crucial for small images or single conversions, but for batch decoding the speed is important factor. In Delphi, there is Canvas.Pixels[x, y] property, which returns pixel color at specified position. And...

    Save JPEG header + mipmap into the *.jpg file and try to open it with any image viewer. My guess is that JPEG decoder opens extracted mipmap in YCbCr color space (3 components), meanwhile JPEGs stored in the BLP have BRGA color space (4 components). You should check decoder settings too.

    Hello. Offset shows absolute position of mipmap in the file. To read first mipmap, your program should follow these steps: Read JPEG_HEADER_SIZE ([4] bytes located at 156 position) Read JPEG header ([JPEG_HEADER_SIZE] bytes located at 160 position) Read mipmap ([MipMapSize[0]] bytes located at...

    It is located in "User borders" frame. Press F4 to open it. I don't think it applies (or should apply) to resource threads.

    X Design Pack v1.06

    I think the same goes for other programs in the pack as well. Also, if you want to keep stylish icons, you could have assigned them to shortcuts. That sums up my point.

    Here it is http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/pastebin.php?id=g2zyzx Interesting information. It appears that game engine forcefully opens the texture as if it has all mipmaps presented. As Dr Super Good mentioned, the paletted and uncompressed images seem to work only because the game will...

    2D Art Mini-Contests: Icons' Prison

    The program defines all grayscale colors as original image shading, which intensity could be modified for each border. If border have any artifacts when applying to picture, make sure there are no "gray" pixels. In other words, changing a bit pixel color will fix the glitch.

    Campaign Processing Helper v1.1

    I have read that post. I'd use all object (.w3*) data for widgetizing, not only ones you have mentioned. Also, some .w3* files may remain after process, so it is important to take them into account. Thanks for the explanation of how campaign data works. I'll update the tool as soon as possible.

    Blurry loading screen.

    Why would you save your texture as TGA? Yeah, it preserves quality of the original, but too weighty. I'd better use that map space for the other imports. I managed to get ~325 KB loading screen (4 textures and 1 model) with decent quality. What I've done: Proportionally resized original image...

    Campaign Optimizier?

    There's a plug-in for JNGP that allows to compile campaign maps within editor. It's called ScExp. I could submit it here. It's not a problem to write a program, which extracts and processes maps through Vexo's tool, since it supports command line. The bad thing is in lacking flexibility of...

    Optimizing skins? How to make file size smaller

    BLP Laboratory You can use that to "optimize" BLPs (it removes all junk from file, not image), and it will reduce size by several kbytes and preserve the same quality. Otherwise, you can resave your texture with lower quality options (current quality value is shown in the "file information"...

    Optimize skins?

    I think, Dr Super Good meant JPEG compression used in BLP, not the JPEG file itself. Any BLP with JPEG compression always contain alpha, even if the input image was without it. Oh, and BMP can store alpha channel, read the file format specification, wc3viewer just cannot save it. Why convert BLP...
