ways to make it smaller?
The topic says it all.
I can't make my own graphics to play with in existing games, so I use other ships that I can find. In this instance, I took the Venerian Striker from Polycon and changed it from gold to white. As I was changing the file back to rled (I think Polycon only used rle8) I saw the 1296 sprites!
Obviously this took forever the Enrle to convert back to to a rled file. The end result was a 2mb file.
A 36 sprite file is obviously quite small.
As I am talking my way though this I am having an inkling of what I have to do but no idea where to start.
So, how do I cut a file down from 2mb.
My first guess is that it has to do with the Derled file and what it creates.
Even after so many years of owning this game, I am still a rank amateur.
Thanks for any help.
