I'm converting a large wargame to VASSAL, and the maps are a problem.

Specifically, they were originally printed with only maybe 8 colors (it's an old game), but of course when scanned all sorts of errors and shadows and aging and such crank the palette and hose my filesize.

What I need, is someone who can take perhaps a dozen (maybe a few more) LARGE mapsheet scans and unify them to the same minimal PNG palette (I'll provide the exact color count later, but I'm sure it's ~10), so as to dramatically reduce filesize AND actually improve their fidelity to the real-life maps.

This is a big, big VASSAL game, and the way the maps are now the total filesize (and memory requirements) is just too great.

While I'm waiting on another user to scan all the sheets, I have a test sheet already scanned and can provide that to anyone who wishes to try their hand before committing to the entire project.

I'm willing to pay 25GG for this, as it will be a substantial amount of work AND it is a project of great personal value to me.

Any questions, post here.
If you want the sample scan to play with, geekmail me an email address.

Thank you.

I'll do it for the 25gg.

I have the whole adobe suite and I'm positive I can do what you asked. I have lots of free time, and I am obsessive about detail.

You can email the files to my user name @ gmail.com

Or you can use drop.io
