The Tilemaster v0.35 release has only few new functions. The biggest change is that color and gradient fill tools now can handle a tolerance setting for the colored area to fill. That means is you have an area to fill, which is not exactly one color, but a few very similar shades of a color, the tolerance setting can help to treat all shades as once color and fill the area completely.
Changes in Tilemaster v0.35 since v0.34:
- New "Borderblend" tool to blend the outline of an image with a selectable color.
- New "Shading" fill tool.
- "Import image as tile" now enlarges canvas size of needed.
- Fillmachine can now handle color tolerance.
- Color selector can now handle two selections for fore- and background colors.
(Left and right mouse click, middle button will open color editor).
To run Tilemaster, unzip the tilemaster.zip and execute the start.bat script if you are using Windows, or start.sh if you are using Unix (maybe works for MacOS X, too). If the start script doesn't work, you can try to double click the tilemaster.jar file. If you have Java 6 properly installed this should start Tilemaster, and also load the plugins, but in former versions this did not work properly.
If you are familiar with the command line interface of your OS, this line should start Tilemaster and also load the plugins:
java -classpath plugins;Tilemaster.jar;lib\Itemizer.jar tilemaster.editor.TilesetEditor
