Request for help #1

We want to make a newbie pixel board. Any ideas for a theme, a palette?

About the theme we were thinking that a city or building is easy and fun enough for newbies and they won't run out of ideas.

About palette, we were thinking about arne's palette, but maybe more colors would be better for newbies?

We were thinking to make the tile size 50x50 so they're not so intimidating like the 100x100 ones, and yet not so small so things can be made inside.

Any ideas and suggestions are welcome :D

Hey ho!

We've just made the pixel editor available as a separate thing so you can just play with it.

http://tzigla.com/editor

For now it only has arne's palette for you to play with.

Have fun and please let us know if you do something cool with it :D

Toodles!

Oh, and there's also a newbie pixel art board now, moderated by the great Argyle :D

'lo

We've just deployed LAYERS with 10 minutes before we go on vacation for 3 months :D

Fortunately, only on staging for now. We'd really really really love some feedback on the layers so we have a chance of putting it on live in the next days before we sell our laptops :D

http://staging.tzigla.com

Check it out: undo/redo across layers should work, transparent color should work, drawing, filling, saving, loading, refreshing without closing the editor, submitting a tile, etc. All should work.

Pretty pretty please let us know of any bugs. We want to deploy this on live but don't want to break the site for three months

Huggies, have fun, and we hope we didn't put a silly bug in just before leaving.

weeeee

Can't believe the pixel editor. Really cool work, ya'll.

One huge problem though, it's so laggy I simply can't stand to use it. Even dragging the mouse around the canvas occurs at like 4 frames per second. . .

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

A pretty good cable connection. No conn issues elsewhere. Good system in general - Windows 7, AMD athlon dual 4800+ 2.5ghz, 2.5GB ram, blah blah blah . . .

. . .

hmm ok, tested in FF, IE and Chrome.  FF is the laggy one. IE it doesn't even appear. Chrome works great, though.

I'm confused I took a tile and it says I only have an hour to upload. I thought we had three days.

That sucks and shouldn´t happen!

We have some ideas where to improve the editor speed overall since we´ve just added those layers really really fast, but it would help if you gave us your exact browser version and exactly what you are doing when it happens. Also, what zoom level does it say on top and, are you zoomed in or not?

And another thing. Is it slow for you also on the live site or just staging?

Thanks
