How to make NSME Screensaver items
- You make a picture of the rolling stock item. Most pictures from the Signal
Box site are scanned B&W drawings that are colourised using a Paint program.
Pure Green (green=255, red=0,blue=0) will be displayed transparant.
- Adjust the size (catanary hight = 95 pixels)
- Fill the transparant background with the colour Green (green=255, red=0,
blue=0). If you do this before resizing, your stock item will get a greenish
border as the resizing process takes a medium colour there.
- Save the picture as -.BMP file in folder windows/NSME/trains . On screen
setting 256-colours, problems might occur if the palette of the -.bmp file
is not compatible to the original used by Oberon.
- Create in the same folder a -.wgn file: that is a -.txt file with following
content and the extension renamed-.wgn
