The Paint system allows you to change the color and look of your robots. There are three different Paint modes of varying complexity. Use the Paint system to give your robots that personal touch.
How to Paint your Robots
Choose the robot you would like to paint from the garage and press the Paint button.
Choose from several preset themes in order to quickly change the color of your robot.
This mode allows you to paint each part of the robot individually. Choose a part from the menu, then choose three colors for it. Main Color: The main color of the part. Sub Color: The secondary color of the part. Light Color: The color of highlights on the part.

Load Allows you to open saved skin files.
Save Allows you to save the skin you are currently working on.
Import Image Allows you to import an image to be used as a skin for the current part. The image must be a 16 color indexed PNG.
