Thank you all so much for the positive feedback! I've been slowly refining my tileset over the last few weeks, and today I'm adding two new optional color schemes. I also refined the original color scheme to feature a lighter brown and bolder yellow, but the original faded option is still in the Dropbox too.  I hope you enjoy!

I've been using strictly graphics-free, ASCII tilesets since I started playing. This was the set that changed my mind.

You're doing some fantastic work here. I've never seen any tileset quite like this one-- it keeps the simplicity and clarity of of straight ASCII, but with a subtle touch of life I haven't found anywhere else. Beautifully done.  :)

I appreciate your kind words, and your tower fortress is beautiful! Makes me want to try a game like that.

Hi!

I seem to have a problem with the tileset. I followed the instructions exactly. Here is the screenshot of my problem:

Any Ideas?
Also, what am I supposed to do with the color scheme text file?

Thanks!

Hi,

Hmmm. I would go back through your init.txt file and make sure you've got the exact filename of the .png in the four places it needs to be. Also make sure you've got the png itself in the art directory.

As for the color scheme, just replace the text in your colors.txt file with my text. that file is also in the init folder. Hope this helps! I don't know if it's quite the same in Linux.

I followed the instructions exactly.
That might be the issue - did you convert the file yourself as in step 2 on the wiki? I don't think that was necessary, It should work as it is.
In either case, verify that the tileset is a proper 24-bit png file with alpha-channel transparency. With 8-bit PNG the transparent pixels can only be fully transparent or fully opaque, not slightly transparent (which is the intended effect for all tiles of this tileset).
Best option would be to redownload the original.

EDIT: btw I clarified the text in the wiki.
