continuous drawing high res PF editors...

Recommended Posts

I know there are a few playfield editors out there, which ones support continuous drawing (vs click on each box), high res backgrounds, and export to bB's "X.X." style?

 

I threw one together for my own amusement:

simple b+w, at DPC+'s high resolutions (you can probably figure out how to change it)

press any key to dump out the bB values that can be plugged into

If there was a great clamoring for it I would improve it to know about colors or output asm (with all that weird bit twistyness) or make it more configurable or outputting a ready to go .BB file, but I figure this is 80% of everything and only took me half an hour or so

The VbB playfield editor lets us draw continuously, but drawing on bigger playfields is sluggish. For example, a playfield that is over 80 rows high is frustrating to draw on using VbB.

 

Speaking of drawing DPC+ screens, take a look at this:

It's basically useless for programmers. It's just a toy.

Yes.  There are many times when I would draw and something will not appear as I thought it would or the preview screen would change.  These DPC+ tools are very helpful.
