Yes, these are definitely improvements.
  • former Manasource Programmer
  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

I consider short comments like these spam. Updating item's icons was only necessary at this time for these graphics. I appreciate comments from crush because even if they are short they are to the point. AliG no offense but please stop spamming the development section of the forum.

Any respond to this post should be done by pm but please continue discussing the thread.

I played around with the wooden shield. It's supposed to look like bark (Jack just hacked out a piece of tree and put it in a frame).

Honestly, I like meway's better because it looks more like wood and not like plastic..

Made leather patch to fit the new shield texture and remade pearl (this was unnecessary but I'm remaking everything), On the pearl I used most of the originals pallet.

Edit: added newer version of pearl (the old pearl may still be better but there were issues with the remake)

Edit: Showing the originals

Edit: Added an even newer version of the pearl

The patch is an improvement, but the old pearl was better.
