while i'm not fond of how strong the colours are now, i'm pretty sure most people will prefer it over the old version:

That's not the current version.

Ok, set the compression to 80. What about the other settings? Subsampling, DCT method, Smoothing, optimization? I have no idea which settings lack uses.


You ask yourself about too many options. Don't worry about them, listen to me. Just set quality to 80%. (and don't use progressive images that are hateful)
This is what Lack probably does --> http://help.adobe.com/en_US/fireworks/cs/using/images/oe_UsingFW-Optimize-ImagePreview.png

As said this issue will be solved soon, even if, as I said, in this case the problem is not that the map suffers of a quality loss, but more that colors look all the same/similar for colorblind people.
The new version is much better, except for junks.

Ok, but those options are still there and I don't know what to set them so that the result becomes the same as what lackattack does.

And even so, how will I know it ever does? Lackattack uses a different software alltogether. How do I know lack's software doesn't use different compression algorithms that produce different results?

The % of quality isn't the only option that affects the size & quality of JPEG images.

Actually I think the new version looks like crap. The colours are horribly bright and look like someone vomited on my screen.

So maybe you should just take this map offline until I have the time to redraw it properly.

So, I hope this version works for you. If not, there's not much I can do.

No, I don't.
I think you have to adjust your monitor settings...the new version is much better and i tested it on two different machines (I can do a third test in few hours).
Seriously....do something to your monitor/machine....It's been a while you post/draw only washed color maps and now I understand the reason!

I can't test the junks right now with colorblind filters....did you worked on their colors? (red/teal) O:)

Nobodies, I already posted a version which you can upload, with XML and all (see my last post).

thenobodies80 wrote:I think you have to adjust your monitor settings...


There's nothing wrong with my monitor settings. My monitor settings are perfect.

Little known fact: Some monitors display a higher range of colours than other monitors. For example, on my laptop, all images look much more washed out because of this.

So... it's not my fault if you only use cheap laptop monitors.

that's right, everybody except you uses cheap laptop monitors.
especially tnb80. i heard that when he became a foundry foreman he inherited a crappy 12 inch, IBM 5151 monochrome monitor. lack has been keeping it since 1984 and has passed it from generation to generation. it still has some banana peels on it from when andy used to have it.

Seriously, this is getting moronic.

You'd think if there was something wrong with "my monitor settings" then perhaps photographs, video etc. would look distorted when I view them? Or too colourful or something?

How is it that when I take a picture with my digital camera, and look at it on my computer, it appears exactly as it should, not overly saturated as would be the case if my "monitor settings" were at fault.

When I look at youtube videos or shit like that, the colours appear normal. Ie. the same as what I see in the real world, with my eyes.

Then again, I see some people use colours on their maps that make me want to gouge out my retinas and eat them for breakfast. It's those guys whose monitor settings should be examined more closely, I wager.

But no, that doesn't stop some people from assuming that I can't fucking use a monitor, and talking down to me like an idiot who "needs to adjust your monitor" because "your maps look like shit". Yeah thanks, that's really heartwarming.

Seriously people, use your fucking brains.

tone it down and use yours for a change. if it were just one person telling you the map is lacking colour then i'd be inclined to trust the map maker but in this case EVERYBODY is telling you the same thing. so i really doubt EVERYBODY has bad monitors or that EVERYBODY is wrong about the colours.

i haven't seen a single person to take your side in this matter so according to the foundry rules you must do as you're told by the community.

also watch the language. a point can be made without using f*ck every couple of words. it doesn't make you smarter it doesn't make you cooler and it doesn't help your case. you should have realised this when you were 14.

Excuse me, did I miss the time you became a moderator? Or did I miss you becoming the fucking internet language police? How about you take that condescending, holier-than-thou attitude and shove it where the sun doesn't shine?

And no, "everybody" is not "telling me the same thing" - it's a small minority who has problems with the colours. I don't see a huge flood of input from the hundreds of people who have played this map coming over here complaining about the colours. Do you?

Secondly, taking the colours of this one map and assuming that I must be an idiot who can't use his monitor is absurd and idiotic. The low-saturation colour scheme of the map was a conscious and intentional artistic choice. It was not done because "my monitor settings are wrong" like some people are so fond of assuming. Sure, you can argue whether it was the right choice or not, but please don't assume I'm a fucking moron who can't use a computer or set his monitor settings. It's sort of insulting.

Third, no one had a problem with the colour scheme when the map was in development. No one brought up the issue back then, so I didn't see reason to change them. Only after the map has been in beta have some people (mostly the colour blind) been announcing that they have problems with the map. AND I HAVE BEEN ADDRESSING THE ISSUE AND FIXING THE COLOURS! I've already done two (2) separate updates addressing the colour issue. So I don't see what the big fucking deal is, why you have to badger me about this. I've already posted an update with increased colour saturation - what more do you want from me?

*raises hand*

I thought the old washed out colors looked fine. Yeah, maybe hey weren't instantly recognizable but they looked good. All it takes is a few extra seconds of studying the map to match the colors with the bonuses. I think that that is entirely in the hands of the players. It's not the map makers fault that you are completely lazy, and need everything to be as obvious as day and thrown in your face.

The washed out colors are fine. Those who demand brighter colors are just being big fat babies.

wow just wow. the amount of frustration. you have one sad little existence there mate.
do something about it cause you're not looking like a mature 29 years old that you claim to be but rather as a 15 year old frustrated teen that really need to learn some manners and get laid.
