    I'm considering at some point use the Charas project in my game. How hard is to do this? Can someone point me to the part in Stendhal where this is managed?

    How hard and how can those characters be displayed on the client?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi, we don't directly interact with charas. Rather we grab the gfx we want, scale them by x2 with scalex and use them as required. For creatures and NPC we have built up the layers using their web interface, for the player outfits we just take the single layers we need and build them using an Outfit class.

    Thanks for the quick answer.

    Any written process on the steps you mention? What about the code part of my question?

    http://stendhal.game-host.org/wiki/index.php/StendhalRefactoringGraphics#Creatures

    explains how to convert the images. How to use charas itself, is not documented by us but if you need any help please join #arianne at irc.freenode.net

    I believe the look of entities is defined client side at src/games/stendhal/client/entity/j2d/gui/entity/

    player outfits are built server side at src/games/stendhal/server/entity/Outfit.java
