One set of diagonals and a good thinking on even/odd widths coming up! ;D

SCI Companion version 3.0.0.10 has been released! Full details in the first post of this thread as usual.

A few of the big items:
- gif export!
- support for color shifting (View->Shift Colors) in views, for remapping to different hues/brightness levels.
- the pic background importer has some important new functionality
    - you can overlay images on the existing background
    - you can explicitly specify which palette entries the imported image is mapped to

This makes it easy, for instance, to have palette cycling applied to a certain region of your image, since you can assign different palette ranges as you add the layers one by one.

In my stash right now, there are a slight upd0rt on 999.fon (the ? was too low) and a functionally identical but slightly more readable print.sc that replaces things like theTheTheGModNum_3 with the somewhat clearer seq. I haven't done this to addColorButton and addEdit yet, but it certainly cleans up.

I don't see those there, but I can make those changes too. Yeah, print.sc is kind of a mess still!

Got it. I can finish off addColorButton and the others.

Awesome. I was thinking of going through all these files and renaming paramN and tempN throughout to increase readability. Incidentally, I really feel like blink.sc should be talker.sc, though I understand why it's been given that name.

I agree. I'll make that change.

Talkers are the next thing I'm going to play around with in my "explore SCI1.1" game...

I think I'm misunderstanding how to use the overlay feature in the picture importer. I can't get the overlay to work without wiping out what was already there. I assume it allows you to import pieces of backgrounds in layers, correct? And then assign those "layers" to a different area of the palette?

Here's a request. Can you allow moving around for placing somehow of the imported picture inside the screen if the imported image is smaller than 320x190? Can you also make it transparent-aware? That is, if the shape of the imported image is not a perfect square/rectangle and has transparency applied either by palette or by alpha, when it's imported it appears on top of the original image? Kind of like a "magic wand" select in an image editor. Am I making sense?

Your image needs to have alpha transparency for the overlay feature to work. Png format works well. I haven't been able to get the "from clipboard" functionality to work with transparency, I can try taking another look at it.

Ahh perfect. That would be why. I was doing all clipboard. So it already works the way I was wanting for the most part. Thanks!

What app are you using to make your images? I'm using Photoshop (an old version though - CS2), and it looks like the bitmap format it places on the clipboard (for other apps to use) doesn't support alpha anyway, so I wouldn't be able to retain transparency.

The work flow I've been using has been to work with a 320x190 or 640x380 image in photoshop, and just save the layers individually as needed as png to import into SCI Companion.

Hmmm I'm using PSP5. It also doesn't support alpha. PSP7 does, though. I should try that one. I have it as well.
