during december I wrote this little tool. (The fools from IRC might already have seen parts of it.)
So what does it do?
You can open a .png or .pcx image which uses the TTD palette.
TTDViewer detects the palette of the image (DOS/Win), converts it to the DOS palette if needed, and then displays the image.
So far so boring. More interesting:
- It does the TTD palette animation. You can start/stop animation or enable/disable particular animation cycles.
- You can apply any of the default TTD recoloursprites, that is you can interactively apply company colours,
random industry colours, or just display the whole image as in the newspaper.
new tools to start from it. So: Get it, start it, enjoy it, enhance it!
(Hints: Maybe someone wants to convert it into an applet, which can be display the sprites published on this forum and thus allows to zoom, animate and recolour all graphic previes here. Or well, maybe someone is bored enough, to enhance it to a full-features multi-layered paint program, but err - ok, I will stop here )
TTDViewer is versioned using Mercurial. The guys from #OpenTTDCoop were so nice to host the repository for it, they even provide a build-service
