93.3333 degrees that's why they call me Mr. Celsius

Just like "I was just following orders" was not an excuse, "My religion claims I had to do it" is neither. If you behave as an offensive bigot, you are an offensive bigot. Petty excuses will not be tolerated. Ramen.

comment What standards should designers/artists follow when giving UI assets to coders?
@Joe: he couldn't change it because likely he had some images 0xFF00FF and some others 0xFE00FE. Moreover, people have to get used to do stuff in a proper format if that has been requested: circumventing their errors creates a flawed workflow.

As long as the image has been created lossless, you could (i.e. should) write a program to convert it to the desired format. Anyway you're out of luck if you want to make the differences disappear once you find them, if you don't. I'll maybe update my answer accordingly, thanks :)

Because the most straightforward way to create a difference game is to have a base image and to have a lot of small images representing the differences. Using instead one big image for all the differences presents all kind of problems and negligible advantages.

So, he's doing it the wrong way in the first place, and he's looking for a broken system to patch it up. Mh.

@bummzack: wrong. Your difference already is a rectangle, because it is an image, so using a radius is just wrong, because it doesn't overlap well with the actual difference.

comment What is Minecraft's database?
@Tim: come on, that is a totally uncalled random nitpick. It is plainly obvious he refers to the database on the client.

comment Is Tetris public domain?
-1 misleading: while it is true that they can't be patented, patent trolls do it anyway, and in court who has most money wins regardless of any law. Furthermore, the "must be extremely close to the original" sentence is just random nonsense.

comment Can I get around a Pokemon copyright with new art and minor changes?
@Trinidad: just to be more precise, game mechanics are believed not to be patented, but they are patented anyway and usually the bigger lawyer wins regardless of the laws.

No, it's not a good idea: it's a very stupid idea, actually. But since you clearly don't care about what grown ups tell you, just do it anyway.

I have a completely opposite experience: didn't manage to even mirror a sprite with pyglet, trashed it and switched to pygame.
