DKC1 GFX Editor

Postby rainbowsprinklez » July 20th, 2020, 6:43 am

Hey all. I just finished this new tool and would like some help bug testing. In fact this program is heavily influenced by Quaraage's work. I pretty much copied these two tabs. This is a DKC1 graphics editor. This has the ability to change both object palette and the sprites associated. In the future, I plan on adding more to this but figured I would release this in the meantime. All buttons seen work. Please contact me with any bugs/features to incorporate here.

'Write' always writes to rom, where 'Apply' makes changes on a program level.

Enjoy!

This works with a 1.0 U ROM.

TODO:
- Add tool tips for most things

This program:
This remembers what file you loaded last and loads that on next boot.
There is no undo button, but that could be easily remedied with various manips.
Inspired by Quaraage's DKC2 editor.
On boot, this connects to the web and checks the version on a page I manage.

If anyone wants to learn, here is my 'messy' source code

TUTORIAL
This program allows you to change both the palette used by each object as well as which pixels have which color. The Apply buttons just save changes to volatile memory. On load, those changes are lost. The only way changes are not lost is if you click Write. Write copies data to ROM.

Hard to say, as I never implemented version numbers to this and I have no idea what you had... but recently, I took out buttons I used in making Dixie Kong Country and cleaned up the animation tab some.

Sorry for the late reply mr sprinklez . Thanks for notifying me!

Awesome tutorial.

I dl the latest version but Windows defender says it’s a virus!!!

Also can you provide a downloadable version of the tutorial?

That would be great thanks.

Keep up the good work!!

No offense, but windows defender is garbage. I personally use Avira, for its stance on privacy, but AVG is my alternative recommendation. But they got bought by Avast and they’ve gone downhill since. Stay away from Norton, you can’t uninstall their products without breaking your computer. Glad to hear from you again, Cyclone! :parry:

Yes I know it’s garbage… I just don’t trust random programs. I never had windows defender complain before.

I’ll analyze the file myself, just in case. Winaero Tweaker is still considered a virus to Windows Defender as well. :parry:
