  • Hey Slendermando, just wanted to greet ya since I see you on here just about every time I'm on here. I see you're good with finding transparent images, are you a dataminer? I'm new to the wiki editing scene and enjoy adding stuff, but I'm not sure where to find a lot of things. I've managed to find a number of prefabs in the data but that's about it lol

    • Hello ! :) Nice to meet you, yes I see you too a lot these times!

      Oh yes I use a specific tool to build the images :) it's Matt Tex Tool, it allows you to get a .png image out of a .TeX file. After that, you just have to build it piece by piece using your favorite image editor, and that's it! I usually use a screenshot of the object so this way I can perfectly align the .png pieces with the real thing... It's quite tedious, I know some people use another way (I think it involves 3 additional softwares), which is faster but the quality is greatly reduced

      You can get the TeX files in "...\common\DS\data\anim"

      Hope it helped you ! :)

  • Hello! How can I move an image freely? I added a photo in Don't starve hamlet but only the options "left, center, and right" appear.

    • But I personnaly leart by simply copy/pasting some source codes of other, more complete pages, to add complicate things like Tables or Gallery...

      It's very simple when you get the hang of it, but for your first times I would recommand you to do the same, just copy-paste some other codes from other pages, and just change it to put your informations :) very easy!

    • I tried to put another one from Peagawk just by codes and it worked! Thank you. I'm happy for the help ^^

  • How does one export the images or textures from the game files? I see people uploading them--I would help, but I haven't found software that will let me view them. Are they a proprietary Klei format?

    • Hey there!

      This is how I extract animated objects and mobs from the game: Blog Post. For things that are not animated like icons and such I use Matt's Tex Tool which is also linked in the blog post.

    • And personaly, I directly build them by exporting the TeX files in Png format (via Matt's Tex Tool) and then editing the resulting file in PhotoShop :) it's more tedious, and takes a lot of time, but in the end the quality is much better ! It's litteraly the choice of everyone

  • I uploaded the original exported file. The current one you replaced it with was heavily edited by me, and it looks pretty bad up close, hence me previously replacing it with the pixelated version, which is how Krane + Spriter export those sprites

    • And I put a looot of time to build the Rhinocebro, piece by piece, with the original Tex files, so it's disappointing to see it replaced by something of a lower quality.

      I will just replace it again with my file, but larger, it will be a good compromise.

    • Mine is not blurier. It is bigger. Your old image looks just like mine when put at the same size. Some mob sprite sheets are just small by themselves. This is why some exported pngs look so blurry regardless. Now what I don't understand, is why you went out of your way to merge the heavily edited version of mine with your old one, and still kept the cropped out foot. If you build it piece by piece, why did you leave the foot out in the first place? Plus the whole leg is backwards. This was literally what made me come out of retirement from doing pngs, lol. I know how hard it is to build the images manually just for the sake of saving quality, because that's what I used to do, but if its not to be right, why even bother going the long way?

    • Maan, one week later and you still haven't digest it, so you come with a lot of arguments, because it's still a concern for you? My god I didn't even think about this anymore, yes you're right the feet are bad, I just noticed it earlier when comparing to the real Rhinocebro, but if you think you can do better why is it a problem? Why don't you just download the last version, rebuild the feet, repost it and that's it! No problem man

    • No problem it was a pleasure ! ^^ 

      For all these questions I think an administrator could answer you better than me :) But if you have informations, I don't see why you could not edit directly ! ^_^ if you are not very confident it's not a problem, someone will always be there to correct or add things you missed !

  • Hey, so i noticed you where active. Do you know, by chance, how to get to palace city? Because i can't seem to find it.

      Loading editor
    • Yes :)

      In fact there is not just one island, there are two others, and the Palace is on one of those. And to go there, you have to go through the Ruins found in the Deep Rainforest Biome. You will see, there are 2 Ruins in this Biome, one will get you to one Island, one will get you to the other ! And that's it! ^^
