Colormap/Palette Question For New Port ...

Recommended Posts


I am working a new port, which features a top down view rather than first person, much like Alien Breed etc.

I am making use of all the original media packed into the wad file but one thing I am having difficulty with is the colormaps.

I understand what they are for, but cannot work out how to use them ?

I know there is some calculation based on sector light level, but how do I use this to pick the right colormap, and then the right colormap value, and where does the palette come into play ?

Any help on explaining this would be greatly appreciated and would finally allow me to implement sector lighting :-)
