At Maggoo's MSX Page VScreen Map Editor for PC 0.1 is available for download. With the Vscreen Engine it should be possible to develop a (open source) game engine for creating platform games on MSX. This map editor allows you to create new levels on a PC.

Some updates to this version:

  • Load / Save Level Description files.
  • Load / Save in .stg format (compatible with MSX Level editor).
  • Load background graphics in .tgp / tc format (as created by Sc5to4.bas).
  • Load sprite files in .tgs and tcs format (as created by Sc5toSpr.bas).
  • Edit level map and specify special blocks (was not possible on MSX editor).
  • Edit start position for main character in the map.
  • Edit level name (supported in upcoming Vscreen 0.8).

Still to be added:

  • Definition of enemies path.
  • Edit position and type.
  • Edit number of bonus to collect to open exit door.
  • Load and convert background graphics in .sc5/ge5 format.
  • Load/Save whole level as one file (gfx/sprites/map/attributes) for next versions of Vscreen.
  • Support MSX2 Sprite Converter for Windows file type.

Yup, Blitz 3D. Best thing since MSX Basic. If there ever is a new MSX, this is what it should come with :-)

hehe!

*wolf whistles*

However, for applications such as these I'd say: use Blitzplus. Furthermore, try to work on the key routines.. F1 and F2 are too fast now, it's a bit messy to select the direct neighbours.. it's just too fast Smile
And [esc] shouldn't quit the app, as [esc] is also used to quit from a file dialog ..

Yeah I know. Only problem is I already paid for Blitz 3D so I don't feel like paying for yet another version... Bummer they charge for so little extra features.

So little few extras ?????? ever you ever even seen B+ ?? (that's a lot of E characters in one sentence Smile )

It's not an update for B3d, but a complete new app that's compatible with the old B2d.

@Maggoo, any possibility that the sources can be released? It seems like all other sources in this project are open, but not this one. I find it pretty nice Smile
