BAM format change in Enhanced Editions

Recommended Posts


0x000b 1 (unsigned byte) The compressed colour index for RLE encoded bams (ie. this is the colour that is compressed)


The transparency index is set to the first occurence of RGB(0,255,0). If RGB(0,255,0) does not exist in the palette then transparency index is set to 0

I haven't done exhaustive testing, but it seems the EE engine (and probably also ToB) do not like it when the RLEColorIndex is not zero (0). The EE engine transforms the color of the RLEColorIndex into transparent (Green) while ToB renders it even more poorly. There goes some potential compression...
