Why don´t you take a look into that OGFX code? And check if it is using action5? And how? And if it is not using action5, but actions 0-1-2-3, there might be a reason for it?
I already did that and it does indeed use Action-1-2-3. This I also already tested to change those graphics, that works.
But I want to be absolutely sure that action-5 cant be used for those sprites.
Because if that is the case then this thread can also be usefull for future GRF-developers who want to change canal- and/or river- and/or lock-graphics and run into the same issue I have.
Also a small change/update of the Wiki might be handy (via an extra footnote), something like:
When using OpenGFX-extra version XX.XX and newer, Action-1-2-3 is needed to change Canal-graphics and not Action-5.
Except for the Lock-Icon, for that you still need to use Action-5 (type 88, offset 40).
But again, if that is definitely the case! Because, to me, Planetmakers remark means that it should/might be possible to alter rivers by using Action-5 and he is, if I am correct, one of the devs of OpenGFX.
I hope you understand that at the moment this all is a bit confusing to me. There is still no clear Yes or No to my question (or even: Partly, some things Yes, some things No).
I just dont want to waste my time using the Action-1-2-3 option, if Action-5 is also possible, as that means a much smaller code and graphicsfile (so less work/time and also means less chance for mistakes, or mistakes being spotted easier).
I don't know what the heck I was looking at.
No worries, just wanted to avoid any extra/future confusion
