Adding custom skies in XWE

Recommended Posts

I found this sky texture that would look really nice in a new map im building but i have no idea how to get it into the game. My question is: How do you put custom skies in your wad and use them with the MAPINFO lines Sky1 customsky 0.0

Better yet, how to do it in skulltag with the MAPINFO lines

Note: This is the sky

I did the patches>entry>load thing but all i get is a discolored sky1.

What you're getting is a bug commonly called "tooty fruity".

The reason you're getting this bug is because you're trying to use a texture that is 512x320. Unless you're using Zdoom, you'll get this tooty fruity bug unless the sky texture is 256x128.

Not to worry though, I have a temporary solution to your problem.

Just add that to the wad via XWE. It may not look too pretty but it's better then a tooty fruity texture.

If you want to load .png files, use load(raw data) otherwise XWE will convert it to a doom palette image. Of course then you'll need a port which supports png files. I haven't followed skulltag too closely, so no idea if it does or not. Maybe an opengl/d3d only feature.
