I'm experimenting with a new set of skins (using photoshop), and everything was going well, here's an example of a WIP:http://www.flickr.com/photos/60268498@N ... hotostream
But something, somewhere, somehow went wrong, and all the new skins have come out like this:http://www.flickr.com/photos/60268498@N ... hotostream
My procedure has been:
1. open pcx skin
2. Change to RGB mode (Image->mode->RGB Color)
3. add extra layers and paint some stuff (THEORY 1: I was using the 'eye dropper' tool to make sure I was only using colours that already existed in other quake skins, and something went wrong)
4. Revert from RGB back to indexed color (Image->mode->Indexed Color) THEORY 2: During this step I noticed that when selecting indexed color, a dialogue box popped up ("Indexed Color"), and the colors were NOT 256, they were another number, a lower number (I don't remember what it was).
Anyway, if someone can diagnose 'what went wrong' with the second skin (and ALL the new skins look like this now!) that would be much appreciated
