Are there any sketches of how the map editor will look and function?  Will it be the same as in RPG Maker?

@Saturos: I'm not sure there will be a 0.6 for Atrius's Editor. 0.5 was never finished to begin with.

@Thunder-squall: I doubt it, but I remember I was able to design some map editing methods in Atrius's Editor once, but it had bugs, took longer to load maps(etc.), and was very incomplete. I remember giving it to Salanewt once, for kicks, but I don't think I shared it with anyone else?  I think I pushed it aside when I decided to recode the Editor in another language.

well do you still have this designed map editor?
We can try to master this incomplete editor.
After all it is better then nothing.
Then we could try to improve it or something.

I sort of doubt anyone here will make any use of it, since I haven't seen anyone attempting to edit the current version of Atrius's editor.
I reckon I uploaded it to MediaFire back in the day...
*Looks through my files*
Luckily, there's one that sounds like it might be it, but I forget what it contains.
Even now, it shows that only one person has downloaded it.
It's also dated Feb. 23, 2013. Ah. That much time has passed already.
http://www.mediafire.com/download/kiasquv2vg8zhmh/GSTLAMapEditorA.zip
I'm guessing the A in the filename stands for Alpha?


(If it is what I remember, you can't copy the tiles from the box on the left, you have to copy them from the map itself... I also strongly recommend using a ROM that you do not care whether it gets corrupted or not.)

Wow... A working map editor would be a very nice feature indeed!

Your guess is as good as mine, I guess...?

But if you are wanting to know how the GBA games do the maps:
-There is a collection of 8x8 tiles. (I call it the tiled image, as you can see in the VRAM viewer of VisualBoyAdvance. Atrius's Editor calls it Tileset.) There are four of these "Tilesets", the last (Which isn't shown directly in VRAM.) is for animations. (Which gets applied over the three former "tilesets".)
-Four 8x8 tiles are connected to make a 16x16 tile. This is also where you can choose which of these 8x8 tiles are flipped (Horr. and/or Vert.), and which pallete is used. (Of a maximum of 16)
-These 16x16 tiles are used as map tiles. (The ordering of 16x16 tiles seems to match with when the tile is used in the map, rather than just having an actual pre-made "16x16 tileset"... ; This is speculation, but I'm guessing there may have been a pre-made 16x16 tileset once, but was converted to what we have now for compression purposes.)

Just like with graphic layers, solidity also has three layers. One is used for the Player Character, one is used for Objects you can move, and I forget if the other one is used or not or what it's for.

Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: Being able to convert IPS files to text files to also supporting commenting, and convert back to IPS after changes.... sounds like a fun strategy?

Foreclosure: Yo! Looking forward for this AI OVerhaul patch when it's finished :) :) 
19, August, 2020, 07:00:17 PM
Salanewt: That's awesome! I'm pretty good; been working on an AI Overhaul project and have made some nice progress in the past couple weeks; the goal for tonight is to add Deadbeard to GS2 and then I can move onto something new.
19, August, 2020, 01:14:56 PM
Awec: Ye not bad, just checked back in for updates on GS Reloaded really. Although now I'm looking back through some of my old forum posts, which is fun :D how are you?
19, August, 2020, 01:43:07 AM
Salanewt: It sure is! How have you been?
16, August, 2020, 09:40:57 AM
Awec: Yo nice to see this forum is still going

Salanewt: That awkward feeling when almost a quarter of a year goes by without anyone posting a message in this chatbox.
27, April, 2020, 07:54:10 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: I'm having a thought. So I know Atrius's editor is slow at saving sprites.... So I've been thinking.   I am considering another console program.  This time, for importing and exporting sprites/animations. Image files (for sprites), binary files (for animation data), and maybe binary or text files for Settings. Would certainly be cool if it works out. - Console programs are fun, when you can (at least temporarily) cheat out making a full interface editor for them. =P

Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: Tried to list those in order of importance, but anyway....
25, April, 2020, 10:37:59 PM
Daddy Poi's Oily Gorillas: GSHC, GS Speedrunning, /r/Golden Sun, GS United Nations, ToK.  Sixth one is border-line I'm not sure.
