Wesnoth RCX

Wesnoth RCX (codename Morning Star) is a Qt-based GUI application for recoloring Wesnoth graphics using the game’s own team coloring mechanism.

Derived from the Wesnoth-TC codebase, Wesnoth RCX is intended as an aid for Wesnoth sprite artists and campaign developers who need to preview their unit artwork as it will be displayed in-game under various team coloring parameters. It provides a quick preview functionality, as well as the option to save the results to disk for other purposes. A built-in visual palette and color range editor allows artists and coders to play around with the various possibilities offered by Wesnoth’s team coloring and generate WML code for use in add-ons.

Wesnoth RCX is open-source software, released under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 2 or any later version.


The latest release is version 0.2.1, a bugfix release over 0.2.0.
