Sorry, this is a bit of a long post / rant
I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but this is quickly becoming a show stopper for me to continuing to use this program as I can’t trust the output from the program.
I’m working in index mode using 16 palette’s of 16 colours (for a tile map page).
I need to be able to reuse the tiles, but using a different palette.
For example, master tile set uses palette 0. I want to reuse these tiles, but using a different colour palette #6.
In my mind I should be able to open another page in Aseprite copy the whole palette across (all 255 colour / 16x16 palettes).
Copy the master tile set I want over to this new page.
Recolour this tile set using the palette I want (so going from pal#1 to Pal#4 - normally a darker version of the same palette). I blank out Pal#1 just to be perfectly sure that the new tiles don’t reference Pal#1 at all.
I then copy this new tile set back to the original page and move it into any empty space on that page.
Now in my mind it should still be using the new colours (Pal#4), but because there’s duplicate colours in the whole palette / colour index, Aseprite remaps the the tileset using the same colours it finds in the whole palette. Making my recolouring work useless. This is without me hitting the Remap button at any time.
Is there something stupid I’m doing wrong here as I’m sure I used to be able to do this (maybe an issue with V2.17)?
