View Full Version : Spritedesigner by Magic Storm / Firlefanz with Source Delphi

24-08-2005, 08:01 AM

we have decided to release our SpriteDesigner Opensource.

We used it for 4 years now and made most graphics in our games 'Xenidis' and 'TombClimber' with that tool. Now we are mostly working with 3D modelers and so I hope maybe anybody can use our tool or use some parts of the code or something.

The GUI looks terrible because we only used it for ourselves and added a new function all few weeks for over 4 years. There is also no documentation and some parts are in german, other parts in english.

But in my forum I started a Tutorial topic, where I teach some basic things, screenshots included. I think for a 2D game developer my tool has a lot to offer, for painting small sprites and animating them it has a lot of functions!

If you are interested in learning more, please tell me. If nobody is interested, I won't add more lessons, if I feel somebody is interested, I'll continue, most functions are missing but I descripted some basic functions.

A download link is in the intro of the topic.


Some screens:

If you find it useful, let me know, I'll keep adding lessons as long as I get some response. And I can tell you, there are many nice features!

If there is a lot of interest, I might translate the GUI to english and enhance it a bit. :D

:shock: Looks like a really impressive program. I'm sure it will be usefull to many.
Too bad if you would abandon it yourself, even 3D programs need good 2D
artwork. And otherwise you just have to stick to 2D, after writing such a
complicated development program. :wink:

Try it!

I think it is very good for every 2d developer if you get used to it :D

If anybody has comments or maybe wished let me know.

If there is interest, I'll continue the program with more documentation etc, else I won't. :wink:

That?_Ts really nice Firle, I got some confusing error messages in german while playing around though. The interface is a bit strange, although I must confess it's much more user friendly then my own tools :wink: Certainly worth a look for those who think that gimp is too big and paint is too small.

If you post me any error messages or tell me what you need to know or if you have any comments, ideas please let me know. :D

Did you take a look into my little beginning online tutorial?
