TileMaker is a simple utility movie for importing graphic images and slicing them up into a series of tiles. When slicing the image, this utility will compare each slice to the existing tiles and will only create a new tile if it is different to any existing tiles.

Select 'Load Image' to load an image file (JPEG, Pict etc). Specify the desired width and height of the tiles, then select 'Slice Image'. The tiles will be saved to a new castlib. A mapList (used to reconstruct the image from the tiles) is also saved to the castlib.
