White Glow

Yes, I know this was discussed before, but the nothing they mentioned helped me, except for the fact the white glow only surrounds that I had resized, and some things weren't explained enough for me, I am inexperienced. No matter what I do, the white glow is there. Go to my game's site (found in my signature) to see a picture of this, just click on Pictures found at the far left near the top. It's not HORRIBLE if no one can find an answer, because it kind of fits in with the main character.

Thanks,
Bunny

I hate to say it, but as far as I know once the graphic is drawn on a white background there isn't much you can do. Other than taking the eraser setting it to pencil mode and getting rid of every slightly off white pixel around the image. Wheee! Good times, eh?

In my experience it's really best to start your drawing on a transparent background. If that isn't an option, though, grab that eraser tool and start having the time of your life!

Another option - it won't fix everything, but it's worth a shot. Use the magic wand tool and select the white background. Then in the select menu chose 'Select Inverse' Now contract the selection by a pixel or two - inverse again and delete. Might make your graphic look worse, or it might help.

If you have Photoshop, and have the original (before you resized) then you can do it this way. Open the original, Go to Edit>Prefs>General (Cmd-K) Set the interpolation to "Nearest Neighbor." Then resize as appropriate. If you don't have the original, then happy erasing!

  1. I was talking about the white fuzzies.

  2. stray, how do I "You can use anti-aliased graphics by choosing a non-white base color for your document" do that? I am new to making games, so you have to be very detailed with me, otherwise I just sit here pondering what you meant. Thanks for the help, just needs to be a little more detailed for new people :).

I agree, it doesn't look too bad on your character, especially since your using the premade graphics for the environment, give him a little contrast.

has anyone tested to see at what point CGE doesn't consider something white? my guess is at 33%.

Thank you ellrx, and I guess it can also show the immense power in Abdar :).
