Is it possible to add trueColor support (> 24bit colors) into the VaVoom wad files. (I know this would require a special tool because nwt, winTex, and DeepSea, etc require textures to be 8-bits in color.)<br><br>But, it would look soo cool  8) if VaVoom supported trueColored textures, and flats.<br><br>Is their any thing I can do to help make this dream a reality--if anyone wants to help me pull this off please contact me.<br><br>P.S.<br><br>Anyone intrested in helping me improve gameAI or add Artificial Life (cellular automata, neural networks, or genetic algorithms to the bots) please contact me.<br><br>GameAI/AL will be the topic of a future post <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

This won't be a problem. The only thing that will not gain anything from this is software renderer, where I will have to make them 8-bit. And as of utility - it will be vlumpy that will allow you to do this.

I am attepting to add a tga file supporting trueColor<br>into the WAD file  ??? using nwt's import raw into ><br>iwad function.<br><br>However, the titlepic looks black when I go into the game. What changes would I need to make to the engine to make VaVoom95 be able to use tga files<br>in the wad and not only use them with models.<br><br>I want to have true color floors and ceilings, and am unsure  ??? about what needs to be done with Beta 114 or even if adding true color images to the wad is possible in that version.<br><br>Thanks for your help!

Yes, currently engine doesn't support that. But this can be done in the renderer to first check for a tga file, and if not found, fall back to the original loading.

I'd love it if someone would post the code to this forum so I can add it 2 the game. (Just being able to dynamiclly load pals so I could use any texture I wanted would be nice.)<br>>>~Put code here please; like da MP3 code~<<<br>THNX LH
