MSX Gids magazine publisher owns the copyright. It's not freeware, it's not PD.

So any tested screen 1 editor?

I downloaded MSX GIDS 15 10 days ago and have just finished typing the whole thing in. I have to say it's an amazing program - I wish I'd had it all those years ago when I was programming MSX games (or trying to!).

I took the liberty of converting it to English, and also created an English PDF manual. I realise that Martin van der Graaff owns the copyright, but if msx.org think it's something we could add to the downloads page I would be very happy to send it. Does anyone know Martin who could ask for his permission?

chalky: Well done!
Not only typing in and translating but also going through the trouble to create a english manual aswell.
I wouldnt mind if you could send me a copy of these files?

The Creative series are well programmed, so we can swatch graphics from Graphic Master to Creative Graphics and use PrintStudio to sent them to the plotter. Realy amazing. In the 80´s I enjoyed drawing in screen 7 and 8, ´cause it was cool to use such powerfull MSX2 hardware. But nowadays I go back to the roots and use the limitations of screen 2. I did a lot of drawings in my earlier days w/ Creative Graphics, but didn´t realize the plotting function until today.

I'm writing a PC based graphic editor (in Visual Basic) aimed specifically at MSX.

It works for screens 2,4,5,6,7,8 and features :

  • Palette editor (done 80%)
  • Tile editor 8x8 and 16x16 (done 75%)
  • Multiple tilesets management (done 76%)
  • Map editor (done 65%)
  • Sprite editor 8x8 and 16x16, mode 1 and 2, and OR sprite editor (done 3%)

I hope to release the Beta version before summer.

Was it finished? It looks pretty complete.

Actually I use Magellan + Piropaint (and discovered that the piropaint author bought one of the two copies of Freedom Fighter sold in Japan).

Chalky, why not submit it to the Download Database, right here https://msx.org/downloads/submit

It was a magazine type in so all rights would be held by MSX Gids or the author, Martin Van De Graaff so cannot be added to the database.
