  1. I just started P.N up this morning to do some texturing. The plugin I use the most doing this is Dents, so before long I pick that out of the menu... only to find that an utterly sterilized version, that doesn't come anywhere near the usefulness of the original, has been crammed in place of the plugin version. To top this off, Plugin Load Errors says that the original, superior version wasn't loaded because P.N already has a Dents effect. I'm going back to the old P.N right now, but... why? What's the point of preventing someone from using a plugin just because there's already an effect of that name? Especially when the existing one is outclassed by orders of magnitude by the original? What was the motivation for destroying everything that made that plugin good, anyway? A note on the side: You plan on updating the effect emoticons? :AllColorChannels:, :AddNewLayer:, and :AntiAliasingOn: are kind of outclassed, aren't they?
  2. I've been wanting this as well. A significant portion of the textures in SSBB require an indexed palette to work, and P.N can't do that right now, and screw me if I have the money to buy Photoshop, let alone be willing to shell out six hundred just to edit Brawl textures.
  3. This a million times. I've been wanting something like Selective Palette for ages, but I'm not interested in any of the others at all. I'd rather not have to install a dozen plugins if I'm only ever going to use one.

  5. I've been using Paint.NET to edit Super Smash Bros. Brawl textures, which come in TGA format. Most of the files are 24-bit, which is fine, but some of them need to be saved as 8-bit TGAs, and Paint.NET apparently doesn't do that? Unless I'm overlooking something obvious, could support for this be added?

  7. I've had six "out of memory" crashes (or so I assume; P.N randomly closing with no error message and no pdncrash.log when I make a complex selection with the Magic Wand sounds like out of memory to me) since Clear History was removed, and all of them occurred while I had a lot of unsaved changes. These crashes never happened when Clear History was available, since I could free up a ton of space by getting rid of the thousands of Pencil entries I create while spriting, and this is doubly good because sprite work is the most royal pain in the world to lose from a crash. I don't even know what chain of logic you guys were following that convinced you to take it out in the first place. Honestly, I really can't find a justifiable reason not to have it. o_0 Please, think of the sprites!
  8. Linguistic: 6 Logical-Mathematical: 9 Spatial: 11 Bodily-Kinesthetic: 7 Musical: 8 Interpersonal: 2 Intrapersonal: 4 Exactly what I predicted. Screw the social life, give me my video games.
  9. My laptop supports that. It has a monitor port, so you can just plug one in and away you go.
  10. I get that as well, but more like 90%. <_< And it's not a problem with forumer. It's a problem with phpBB. Because phpBB is a horrible excuse for forum software.
  11. Very nice. Now I can fill in all those empty icon spaces in my Effects folder... Er, one thing bugs me though. When I opt to put an effect in Adjustments, it creates a subfolder in Effects called Adjustments. Is this a bug, or are you just locking us out of the real Adjustments folder? <_<
  12. ... I used it. And I DO have to care about my memory management, because I only have 480MB of RAM. And it seems a lot of the time like much less than that.
  13. Kind of sort of. It's like a motion blur that you can use with the mouse. Imagine the image was a chalk drawing; a smudge tool would be you wiping it with your finger.
  14. ... ESRB rated E for Everyone? :? Great tutorial.
  15. I find it particularly funny that they still have v2.72.
  16. Aaaaaand, after a very thorough search, there are - count them - ZERO non-trial programs that can convert OpenType to TrueType. -.-
  17. ... the hard way. Okay, so I just installed a font. There are four new files in C:\WINDOWS\Fonts: So now I open Paint.NET to use the fonts. They should be right between Times New Roman and Traditional Arabic... but: They don't show up in the list. A bug? I think this is why everybody is asking questions despite the large number of previous font issue threads. The four font files are OpenType fonts, if it makes a difference.
  18. I'm pretty sure %255 is a space. Replace all the spaces in the filename with underscores and try again.
  19. Madjik, he's not talking about hidden layers. He's talking about moving something out of the picture's boundaries and not losing it.

  21. Okay, got it... Step 1: Paint the background layer a dark color so you can see what you're doing. Make the canvas 100x100 pixels. Step 2: Create two new layers. Fill the first new one with white. Make sure your brush width is 2, swap your colors so white is primary, then use the grid plugin on the second new layer. Tick the "Use Brush Width" box and set the size to 50. Step 3: Use the gradient tool with the mode box (the multicolored option in the toolbar) set to transparent to fade the grid into a reflection-like sparkle. Step 4: Gaussian Blur at two pixels, then Glow at two pixels with Brightness and Contrast at maximum. Rotate to taste. Sorry, no screenshots. Will make this into a full-fledged tutorial if anyone so desires.
  22. You mean the X-shaped reflections? brb, opening Paint.NET...
  23. Feather plugin is a bit more intense than standard anti-aliasing though... and not adjustable. Unfortuantely, there's no aternative. -_-
