General Discussion / Re: Hackable pixel editors?
« on: July 29, 2017, 09:51:09 am »
Maybe it's best to stick to my own project. It has problems like writing an entire GUI on top of SDL2, but at least the source code is better than anything I've ever seen. I was browsing aseprite's source code and randomly watching this guy (I presume the programmer is a male person) passing a pointer to constructor and then deleting it in destructor with some kind of condition. No, don't do that. Just go back to C, C++ is not for you. I'm sometimes wondering am I really that good as programmer? Why can't others be at least near my level?

General Discussion / Hackable pixel editors?

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.

Complaining about it on an unrelated forum

Unrelated? What was this forum again? A forum full of idiots?

Yes you have, you may not be aware of it but these phrases you used are accusations:

No, those were opinions or thoughts, something everyone should be able to say in a free world.

Frankly, it looks like you're just trying to badmouth their product, a potential competitor to yours that you keep saying you want to write.

Sorry buddy, my editor is freeware. I haven't made any "accusations", just wondering out loud. Things like a manual should be there, don't you think? Even better, a trial version would be the best option, because then you can test if the program works for you.

Contact the developer and ask them if it has the features you need.

I'm wonder why there is no manual or complete list of features. It would probably only increase sales. The features I want are OSX version, modern RGBA colors, assignable second mouse button (for secondary color, not something like context menu which I hate) and possibly a fast way to view a tile repeated many times (to check the seams). But I guess I'm not even looking for that kind of program seriously, because I'm going to program it myself eventually. Maybe I was just wondering that way to sell the program as in this case. I don't understand why you would need to give such a vague impression of the program unless it's actually bad and you just want people to buy it. I think this is something that's quite obvious in AppStore, which is attracting developers looking for (easy?) money.

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.

Sometimes you see guys coming on internet and expecting everyone is going to like what they do. They can't deal with real critique and in a way are doomed to be mediocre at best. It's really funny how they expect things to go and forget that this is internet. It's also good to keep in mind that 95% (even more) of all artists (and people) suck. You could be that person!

Well it took only two years to release a new version, but here it is, 0.85:

It's still bit of a in-house development tool, but feedback is always welcome. The biggest new feature in this version are selection/masking tools.
