Post subject:  How to put this in a pak file?

I took a file and reduced it to 256 colors. (The above image is 256 colors now, despite the PNG format. I could turn it into any 256 color format with no color loss).

Question how do I get this into a new pak file? What format and name and folder must it go into.

I'd like this charset to load without having to load without using a command in JoeQuake. Just need assistance figuring out how to get in a pak.

Actually I might have this under control. I'll have to make it fit the Quake palette, I just need a WAD editor and I found one on QuakeTerminus .

That MegaZoid, what a guy ... what a guy!

Nevermind, the conchars is the wrong size. Verdict, impossible. I guess a custom 32 bit charset even if reduce to appropriate palette is still 256 x 256 and the quake charset is 128 x 128.

Can't be done. Hence the loadcharset command in joequake.

whats wrong with 128x128 8bpp? Does it look too ugly?

No, Yellow built a nice texture pack that used a custom charset.

I'm turning it into an easy installer. But I was looking for a way to make it so the custom charset was used without having to use an autoexec.cfg or config.cfg.

Then I noticed I couldn't replace it in the WAD because the size is wrong.

I have a JoeQuake 0.14DEV easy installer for windows built and I am building an easy installer for textures, but I don't want to overwrite someone's existing JoeQuake config so I was looking for a work around to make it in a pak file.

Doesn't appear to be possible since the custom charset was 256x256 and the pcx default charset is 128 x128.

Or am I wrong? If I put a png in a wad file will it work? Can I put a skybox in a wad file?

[I'm just trying to make things newbie friendly. Click it, install it, run it ... no need to learn anything to get it up running and awesome looking.]

well, i dont know that editor you're using, but I guess the resolution wouldn't be a problem. The bpp is rather. Lumps in Quake's gfx.wad are all 256 colored, so I think even if the editor would allow you to add, it wasn't work. But try it out, and see if I'm right.

I'll give it shot, Joe. I'll do 8 bpp ... I can pull off that trick. I'm just concerned that the orig is 128 x 128 pixels and it'll get confused on a 256 x 256 one being in there.

We'll find out what happens :D

Baker's installer currently installs the pak0.pak from sput's joequake pro. My solution is to change the quake.rc in pak0.pak to include:
exec custom.cfg
And then install a custom.cfg in /joequake with such items as gl_consolefont "charset-1" and loadsky "morose"
