i just use paint shop pro and my old favourite paintbrush. started using Adobe Photoshop at work tho and it is supposed to be the industry standard or so i am told- so i ges that must be the best (just like windows is the standard and that is the best ...?.. )

Windows is the standard but that doesn't make it the best. Photoshop is the standard, but it actually is the best (though it may initially be confusing).

i cant see why people use paint when the built in graphics editor has more colours and no need to import.

Sound FX: Goldwave
MIDI Music: Noteworthy Composer (I'm bad at it tho)
3D Graphics: Maxon Cinema4D XL 7.3
2d tiles and textures: Maxon Bodypaint plugin for Cinema.
2d spites: JASC Paint Shop Pro 7.2
Game Menus: JASC Paint Shop Pro 7.2, and sometimes Cinema for any 3d parts.

I also use Pyrocluster plugin for Cinema for dust, cloud and explosion effects. I ought some time to upload an explanation of how to make really nice menus with MMF and PSP too...

I like to make my own tools, I have found that my spriting has gotten much better since I made some tool to help.

I do that sometimes. Mostly for building the game itself though, rather than media for it.

Level editors, Array editors (for altering levels and save files saved as arrays quickly), etc.

The few apps I have made for visual/media purposes are:

Treemaker (it helped me draw nice looking trees)
Bonimator (it helped me animate my characters by creating frame-by-frame bitmaps of moving stickmen, who I later fleshed out in my favourite graphics app).

I think it' much easier to free hand a sprite in paint, then'll i'll color it in tgf. If it's gonna be complicated I color it in paint shop pro 7

It's not often I get into the nitty gritty, but when I need to i'll use...
- Photoshop 6, Paintshop Pro 7 and Animation shop for graphics
- 3D Studio Max and Solid Edge for 3D stuff
- Nero Wave Editor if wanna record a bit or play around with some sounds...not ideal, but it beats Windows sound recorder...
