This is Dr. COM WIZ. As you know, I am in game production. I ran into yet anpother disturbing problem with graphics.
I found an article on tile art and starting drawing a tile in a very good graphics program (ArtGem). I saved it in a GIF file expecting to be able to BSAVE and BLOAD it successfuly. I BSAVED it with the aid of a QBasic GIF file loader and everything seemed to be fine until I actually tried to BLOAD it in a different program. It was originally a grass tile (yes, the legendery grass tile) but, wen I PUT it, came out to be a square of randomly colored pixels. It worked OK when I PUT it in the same program I BSAVED it, but when I BLOADed on a different one, I got something equvilent to what would be made by this
PSET(16 * RND, 16 * RND), 16 * RND
'This program was not tested
Except it wasn't animated. It probably has something to do with the PALLETTE that the GIF Loader used. I don't know. Please help!
The GIF loader can be found at:http://www.qbasic.com/files/gif.bas
In the mean time, I'll try another GIF loader and see what happens.
This has been,
Dr. COM WIZ
PS Thank you and goodnight!
