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.

Remember kids! Before you go on that interview, remember to wash your hands in teawater! *Coughs on hand* (Excuse me, I just coughed up a little teawater, so they're still clean!) You wouldn't want that hiring manager to be unimpressed.

May the force be with you!
Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

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.)

I'd very much like sketches for the map editor, so I can implement it in love2d.

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.

Salanewt: Updated it to provide more info that I forgot to mention.

Salanewt: I'm still trying to iron out IQ 2 but I'm pretty sure it's entirely random targeting.
October 13, 2018, 03:16:29 AM
Salanewt: Oh yeah, I posted some more info about enemy IQ.

Fox: (If that makes sense.)
October 11, 2018, 12:48:33 AM
Fox: Yeah, I guess so.  More just saying that's a good place to get answers to GS related questions at the moment.

Crystal Sonata: I did before, but I guess I could try it again
October 11, 2018, 12:41:32 AM
Fox: Not much at the moment. This forum seems pretty quiet. Perhaps you'd be interested in joining the Discord for GSHC that seems to have more activity?
October 10, 2018, 11:16:53 PM
Crystal Sonata: Any projects going on? I need a distraction from the daily grind and I'm interested in hacking GS again.
October 10, 2018, 10:02:53 PM
Fox: Thanks, and good to see you too!
October 10, 2018, 10:02:10 PM
Fox: A few people I'm sure... Most likely the regulars of the past. Such as Atrius, Charon, Role, Salanewt....
October 10, 2018, 03:11:17 AM
Crystal Sonata: I find myself wondering who still remembers me here. Obvs you do (Good to see ya Tea)
October 10, 2018, 12:46:11 AM
Fox: On second thought, it might be because you haven't posted much as Crystal Sonata.
October 10, 2018, 12:41:12 AM
Fox: And your intro isn't that bad. - I imagine most people would say the same about theirs?
October 10, 2018, 12:39:39 AM
Fox: :O - You've been gone so long, I think I forgot you were Momo.  Interesting.
October 09, 2018, 10:23:39 PM
Crystal Sonata: I just revisited my dark past on here and ouch. Someone delete that introduction thread please, the cringe.
October 09, 2018, 08:26:11 AM
Crystal Sonata: Aaaaand, she re-appears yet again. My life keeps dragging me away from the internet sadly.

Luna_blade: haha oof.
