Changing Tile World graphics to CC graphics?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

I'm not exactly the best at this -- I am more familiar with regular CC than Tile World.

 

I was wondering how exactly do you change the graphics from Tile World to CC graphics -- I know you need to change the files. [Also, I'm using Tile World 2 (who uses 1 anymore? :P)]

 

The two tile world graphic files are named tiles and atiles that are running my TW2, and here is the tileset that I have for Chip's Challenge ---

 

tiles.gif

 

Am I missing a CC tileset .gif? [i have this one for CC and this one only]

Seeing how TW2 uses the regular tiles.gif and the atiles.gif

 

I need help and I know everyone else probably knows how to do this. Thanks ;)

Atiles is only used for Lynx mode. You can replace tiles.bmp with a file, however you can't just use the file from the MS version -- it's not quite the same. I'm sure someone can send you a file that will work. (Basically, instead of the black and white columns there are pink ones.)

Actually, you can. The black and white columns version is supported as well.

Well, if it works, is this what I am supposed to do:

 

1. Rename the MS .bmp file to "tiles" so Tile World recognizes the file.

2. Take the other tiles.bmp out of the Tile World folder.

3. Run Tile World.

 

If that is what I'm supposed to do [which I don't think is correct], it doesn't work for me. If I do that and start tile world and start a levelset, the game closes.

 

I wish I knew more about Tile World than I do.

 

But, I'm happy though - I changed all the sounds from Tile World to CC finally. :)

I wasn't able to check, but is that the larger version than the original?

 

Yes.

 

I just finished MIXED NUTS on TW2 using this set, it looks very much like MSCC! :D

What's the largest size of tile I can put in there and what impact does a larger graphics tile have? If there isn't a limit, how can I specify a large tile size? If it's possible, I'd totally make high res textures for it. We're talking like 500x500 per tile. If Tile World itself can handle it, my computer can run it.

Late to the party (again), but does anyone know where I can find CC graphics for atiles? I've seen a few videos here and there with the original graphics but the smooth in-between animations of the Lynx rules, so I know the set is out there somewhere, just not here (been unable to find it anywhere).

 

EDIT: Figured it out! (solution here for anyone else with the same question)

Just delete your atiles.bmp entirely, and Lynx rules will read from the tiles.bmp, and apply the same image in the in-betweens.

Or, you can copy the CC1 graphics file and name it atiles, still works.

The critical piece of info I was missing was that Tile World Lynx does not need that full-sized jumbo tileset in order to function, it can do just fine with the reduced MS-sized set.

 

COOL!!!

As you found, simply removing "atiles.bmp" (or deleting its entry in the "rc" configure file) forces Tile World to "animate" the tiles in "tiles.bmp". But if you want an actual animated version of the MSCC tileset, check out my brother's mod here:

There are two separate versions, one for normal Tile World and one that supports the iceblock patch.

oh my god his walk... it's so... adorable! It's all wiggly  :P the balls remind me of CC2, the frog reminds me of the Gruzzles from an old DOS game Word Rescue.

One of Chip's in-between frames is zieging hile?

This is fun! Somebody made a blown-up-to-Tile-World version of the original CC1 set but the bmp had some jpg artifacts around the characters, I've been cleaning them up as best I could to have a clean version, I might have to figure out how to scale this one up without adding too many artifacts. Thanks a million for sharing this!
