This project is read-only.

Import From Image

This feature allows you to make a room out of an image. To do this, click File>>Open Project. Find the desired supported image file (.bmp, .png, .gif) and open it. From there the Image to Room editor will open. Select the desired preoperties, and then click the Compile Tiles button. GMare will then go through the image to find all the unique tiles within the image to build a background out of it. GMare typically does this quite fast, but if the progress bar is not moving, you can click the Cancel Tile Compile button to cancel out of the operation. Once you have compiled the background tiles. You can either accept the tiles as is, or manually select and move them around to create your own custom background. You do so by clicking the left mouse button to select one tile, or click and hold the left mouse button while dragging to select multiple tiles. Once a selection has been made, you can move those tiles to the desired position. You may also delete tiles you don't need by right clicking after making a selection, and choosing Clear Tiles from the menu.
