Creating Item Description Bams
« on: June 30, 2004, 05:05:27 AM »
Hi All,

Okay so i draw up the image in Photoshop using layers, colour the back ground that green colour for transparency purposes.  I flatten the image before saving as a 16bit bmp. 

I use bamworkshop to create the bam file, use DLTCP to centre the image and use DLTCP to specity the bam in the item file.

Now the problem i have is that when i view the bam ingame it shows up with alot of the lines kind of green, almost as if i had gone over the picture after drawing with a green highlighter marker!

Anyone know why this is happening, something to do with the colours being used to draw the image in photoshop?  I tried redrawing it and the same thing happens even if i open and existing game bam and use the same colours!
