Game cache?
« on: December 21, 2009, 13:13:34 »
Ill let the picture do the talking  X)
Basicly, i made a tileset, and i couldnt go from screen to screen.
I tried diffrent things, but none worked  :sigh:
Then i deleted the floor tiles, and.... bam!!
Halp?

btw why does the filesize limit keep changing?
before it was 1250 ks and now its 500?

I don't really get what's going on there.

Regarding the attachment size limit, I think it has always been 500 kB, unless something changed with the migration to LPChip's server.

That picture is confusing. X-P
It looks like you're standing on air.


To me, it looks like the game is thinking every single tile is fully solid...
...which may happen if you didn't make a proper tileset mask. ;)
Name a tileset-sized image "(tileset name) Mask.PNG" and color-code it for the collision mask of each tile.
Magenta (RGB=255,0,255) and Transparent are air.  ANY OTHER COLORS ARE SOLID.

That isnt the problem, i had already made the mask so that only the ground bits are solid.
It seems to think that all the pieces that USED to be there are still there  :ohnoes:
If i run around, its still got the same lanscape as lomond  :nuts:
So i am assuming that something is wrong with the tileset as it happened when i put a new tileset  :huh:
ill do some more tests

If I understood it correctly, you're editing an existing level; I'd suggest you to start from scratch. Anyway, have you added a new tileset to the existing one, or have you replaced it? By that I mean, in Planet.ini, is there more than a tileset? If you haven't already solved it, could you post a screenshot of the editor window?

Did you notice that Saira tilesets are fairly much larger than KS tilesets? Also if you just replaced the tileset you probably didn't replace the mask tileset which explains why the Lomond landscape still exist behind that chaos.

Did you link the tileset correctly in the planet.ini?
