Devlogs & Projects / What features you miss in pixel editors?
« on: January 30, 2021, 05:46:05 pm »
It seems like each editor has their set of features and none of them has most of the typical features. At least I feel like something is always missing. What I miss are two I guess basic features. First one is drawing with right (secondary) mouse button (color or eraser etc). This for some reason is "context menu" in many programs, or something like that. As a developer I know this feature would be really easy to add as an option.

The second feature is tiling which is some kind of (easy!) way to see if the tile is repeating smoothly from the edges. In some editors you have this as N x N tiles preview. This is also really easy feature to do. I don't know. Does anyone else find this annoying? That you have editors which are quite nice, but they are just missing some features that makes life easier. Of course I'm in the slow process of putting all these in my editor, but I find there are other features and things which are way harder to program and they make it non-trivial to release new pixel editors.

General Discussion / Hackable pixel editors?
« on: July 28, 2017, 04:51:56 pm »
Are there editors that have modern-ish source code you could in theory hack? There is of course Gimp, but when I was looking at the build procedure I didn't even try. I quit right there and then. Another one was Grafx2, but it has a bit too old school C source code and it's probably too hard wired to 256 colors I guess. It would be really cool to have C/C++ project source code that doesn't require too many tricks to build. The way I see it most editors have problems in UI which could be fixed. I have my own project as well, but I've hit stone wall trying to work on the gui parts.

General Discussion / Is Pixen worth 15?
« on: March 13, 2017, 08:29:17 am »
I think there is no demo version to try out and not only that there is no manual to check out all features. Sometimes you need some special feature for reason X. It seems like it's priced just to make people buy it and hope for the best. At least there is some kind of QA forum that indicates Pixen has some basic level problems in how reliable it is. That alone makes me think no thanks, it's not worth 15.

I'm in a process to create a pixel drawing tool myself (have been for a while..), but it's hard.

Anyone know this? It's quite interesting paint program with some nice features and others less nice. It's incredibly fast and pen tool is nice to use for that reason. Most tools have real time preview and most spectacular one is flood fill's preview. First I thought there is something wrong with that tool when it preview filled the canvas. Selection tool is kind of weird, because it's asking something about border every time.

There might be something bad going on with the software, because F-Secure is warning about Update.exe trying to connect internet. I don't know, maybe it is some kind of auto-updater, but I didn't allow it to connect. Maybe should contact the author and ask about it.

New version of a tile editor released, with refactored user interface. If you are looking for a stable editor with consistent GUI, this one is not that program:) I have developed this editor just for "fun" and the fact that I didn't like any of the available editors out there.

It's for Windows, should work in low spec computers also. The window size is about 800x800 (can't be resized).

General Discussion / Stile editor

It's a tile editor I've been developing since 2004. I could be interested about feedback and ideas.
