Strong agree about the palette.

Make the default palette
0f, 00, 10, 30

for all palettes. Instead of all 0s
What do you mean under "Instead of all 0s" ? There are no zero indexed colors in the default palette or in your version all colors in the default palette are dark grey ? :?
If you mean the first color of each of four palettes ( transparency color ), it can't be different in each of four palettes. It's just a platform restriction.

Including when loading a MapEd file and the palette fails to load.
Could you explain step by step what do you mean, the MAPeD version and OS you run the tool on ?

I believe I'm confusing your app with another app with an identical name.

Indeed, this one: http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7111

I recognized the exact problem dougeff described, so I assumed this must be the right topic too. Sorry about that. :oops:

Hi!

There was no news from me for a long time. Recently I decided to commit all accumulated changes. Mainly it touched the SPReD tool.

So the latest version is 0.58b and the main changes are:

SPReD:

- Added a quick guide
- Added a Python script editor for writing custom data export scripts, an API help and a sample script
- Added a project statistics
- Added removing of duplicate CHRs during the optimization process
- Now the optimization performs for all sprites, and not for selected ones
- Added iterative optimization during the packing operation
- Added sprites data validation before: Packing, Optimization, Splitting, Flipping and Creating/Deleting of sprites
- Added the SMS version of the tool (SPReD-SMS) and samples (WLA-DX)


MAPeD:

- Added a quick guide
- Added a Python script editor for writing custom data export scripts, an API help and a sample script
