General Discussion / Re: What is best 256 color palette?
« on: September 10, 2015, 06:48:03 pm »
It also depends if you want to use the colours with dithering or not. For example a made a 256 colour palette designed for full HSV dithering (via a program) that gives good colour reduction results with a lot of dithering, but wouldn't be great to use without it..

That's a nice idea about a library of dither patterns, but also a bit of work to implement and I'm not sure that it's something that is that necessary at the moment.

I like the idea of the 4 x 4 dither patterns icons though. I may well change to that :)

It's C with a bit of C++ and using the SDL library. :)

Well... after just over four years I have a brand new version with a resolution independent interface and a more muted graphic style.  ;D

There are a lot of bug fixes and new features over the last released version. Including more paint modes, being able to draw sections of a circle / ellipse. A lot more brush tools, tile mapping, and customisable right mouse button and held left and right mouse button drawing modes.

I've done a very quick and super simple website and there is a Dev thread on the TigSource Forums for people who are interested. I am also on Twitter and posting about D-Pixel under #DPixel.

Check it out if you are interested (it's completely free and unrestricted):

Example of the new interface:

Thanks vecign, I have a integrated chipset too but don't see those black screen problems. I'll have to look into that. Glad you like it so far!

Mathias, I agree.. unfortunately when I try to use the save PNG functions in libPNG it crashes badly. I must be doing something wrong, but not had chance to find out what.  :(

v 0.62 - 10th April 2011

+ Fixed error where default maximised screen size forgot to take into account windows taskbars
+ Added some level of support for resizing the program window (canvas sizes are now adjusted)
+ Made default 'Save As' file format BMP
+ File selector tweaks to add warning when trying to save over an existing file
+ When right clicking on a colour in the palette (to set the secondary pen) this now updates the Red, Green, Blue and Hue, Saturation and Value sliders (if visible)
+ Thumbnails now update whilst drawing and shouldn't lag behind by one operation for some actions like fill & undo as before
+ Removed Desktop and Fullscreen options from System Options panel due to Engine issues. I'll have to look at these some more in the future

I like the rubbery yellow spider-bot thing best.
