Recolor imported images
I'm currently working on an RPG-style game whereby the player uses a menu system to interact with the environment.
I have created an image-based font (so that I am not bound by the default Windows fonts) and would like to be able to have it multiple colors.
Each image is imported as such:
ImageDatabase[i] = getImage(getCodeBase(),"images/rfont" + Integer.toString(i) + ".png");
(Where public static Image ImageDatabase;)
I would like to know if there is a way to allow for me to recolor the imported images. (They are all a solid white.) I'm almost certain it could be done but I'm not quite sure how to approach it. I have tried XOR Mode, which has the ability to do what I want with it, but when the rendered images overlap, they become inverted (i.e. XOR) which is very undesirable.
Unless otherwise stated, any code posted is most likely untested and may contain syntax errors.
