Hello! Could please anyone tell me how to change a tile in a tileset? I'm using Terminus 11x11 but I don't like grumpy dwarves there and want to make them smiling again. However when I try to change a single pixel in MS Paint all the game's graphics become messed up! What I'm not doing right?

Try another image editor. Gimp, Krita, Photoshop. Most likely MSpaint saves the picture in a way that fucks it up (I don't really know what exactly it does wrong without more information than "graphics become messed up"). If the tileset you want to edit is a png, save it with transparency (in Photoshop: use the "File->save for web and devices" dialogue). If it's a bmp, the background needs to be Magenta. More detailed information will be in any tutorial on the Internet. CLA (talk) 18:10, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
