Custom C-Gear Skins with PokeGen [Tutorial + Resource]

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to make this image 'work', but it always ends up with the wrong colors, and I'm guessing it's because it uses too many colors.
Can anyone help me with this?
EDIT: I discovered this litteraly an hour ago and went on a gave it a shot, so a step by ste[ tutorial of sorts would be appreciated.
Also added the original image.

The problem is not only the colors (only 16 are allowed) it's also the amount of tiles which can cause problems.

1 tile is 8x8px, so on the DS screen wiith a size of 256x192px we have 32x24 = 768 tiles totaly. But it seems like the game only allows 256 different tiles on C-Gear skins.

Here's your skin fixed:

The C-Gear Editor in PKHeX is still incomplete.

I would recommend using PokeGen or PokeCGear to change the skin until the editor in PKHeX is completed.

Heya, back again with a request.
My friend is doing a Blazeblack 2 run and wanted to get C-gear skins.
I told him that you can custom make them and import them through PKHex, so he got pretty excited and went on and cut out an image he wanted as a C-gear skin.
Since I'm a nice fellow (or at least try to be) I offered to do it for him, and he agreed.

Now, since the last screw up I did with the Skyla image I wanted to prevent all those things and go straight to requesting if someone can make this a C-gear skin.
The character should be on the right, as requested by my good pal.
If there's anything that needs to be edited, go ahead and do so, as long as you don't mess up the image too much.

Thanks in advance!

I love the orange feel around it, but my friend wants to know why the pants are orange as well.

He says he doesn't mind too much shade loss.

Oh I didn't even notice, lol. I imported the image with PokeCGear because PKHeX somehow crashed when I tried to import a png. I guess it just replaced the blue colors to reduce the total amount of colors even though I already reduced them....

I can try it again tomorrow.

Are people still making Cgear skins in this thread? I know it’s pretty old but recently I’ve been trying my hand at them. Would anyone be willing to make this one a skin, my main issue is getting vibrant colors with the 16 color limit, and also I feel like it would probably be more fitting in the right corner rather than the left.
(I also attached my crappy attempt to illustrate what I’m talking about)
