Well, that's not needed if the tilesets already have the background transparent. The PNG script takes care of the transparencies too. That means you can just use the script directly on RTP tilesets :)

You should run it in a new game - that way, there'll be sure to have no conflicting scripts.


Or... if you want it without error...
Get the demo xD

Aqua, he said he was going to use it to merge tilesets in his game.  He made it clear that he didn't expect it to be a script IN the game, or anything like that.

The "in" makes it seem as if it's IN the game... :p
A better word would have been "for"

Nazi-ing English when you already know what he intended to say doesn't make you look cool...>.>

Unless he wants improvement on his English or something.

What's osu!? It's a rhythm game. Thought I should have a signature with a working rank. ;P It's now clickable!
Still Aqua's biggest fan (Or am I?).

one by one.
so first merge 2 with each other.
than add another 1, and  another 1, etc

just remember if you load all in 1 it will get a slow game with loads of loading times.
and kinda make your game crap.
so only merge tiles that you need per map. and make multiple tiles.

It's a good system, but I would never use it myself.
A very long time ago, Blizzard and I discussed the practicability of larger tilesets as opposed to the time they consume to create the everyday maps for your game. I prefer standard size tilesets. Everything included in the originals is all that you need. It really is. If you want to make your game more original, then sure ... add a couple tiles, but you don't really need the mergers.

Nope just place all tilesets you want merged together in tilesets folder it'll merge them all. So if you have 7 tilesets in there it'll merge it together then export it into the file "MergedTileset"
