Hello everyone... again. During the last week, we've seen more updates on our home promoted tools for Command & Conquer modders. So, here is the news:

- Open Source SHP Builder support for SHP (TD) files has been improved. The version 3.38 Beta 24 opens any of them, even if its original compression is so bad that it would smaller if it is not compressed. This weird situation seems to happen with some of the original SHP files from Westwood Studios. XCC Mixer, OS SHP Builder and, especially the Engie File Converter generated SHP (TD) files do not seem to suffer from this problem.

- CnC Maps Renderer received several patches recently from E1 Elite. The lastest one is from August 1st, 2019. Here's a merged changelog of them:

- Sequence entries are now read from Art.ini for infantries and its Ready values are used for facing calculation.
- Added parameter for modconfig.xml to enable infantry facing randomization.
- Fixed: Crash caused by SHP addons like bibs in the infantry facings code.
- Added parameter for modconfig.xml to crop the map bottom during the image rendering for local size option. Values can be in a range of 0 to 16.
- Added parameter for modconfig.xml to adjust map lighting with comma-separated values for ambient, red, green and blue. This delta value is added to the values obtained from the map's lighting section. Decimal values can be in the range of -1 to 1.

Note: The cropping of bottom rows is applicable for image rendering (JPEG/PNG) only with local size option. It does not affect the preview window or preview map pack generation or when used with full-size option. When the bottom rows of the map have some height, it shows a vacant portion. To avoid that, there is a cutoff logic which will override the modconfig parameter for cropping the bottom rows when its number of rows to crop is higher.

- Image Shaper was also updated recently by Lin Kuei ominae. Version has the following changelog:

-(update) support for RGBA JASC palettes
-(update) Euclidean color conversion with Alpha-channel support
-(update) [Options] menu added
-(update) "#Worker Threads" setting moved into [Options]
-(update) "Output Folder" setting added to [Options] to define output folder for SHPs
-(update) support to save/load a palette setup. Select "ImageShaper Palette Setup" as fileformat in the Load/Save Palette Dialog.
-(update) Console command line functionality added. Run ImageShaper.exe ? for help.
