Hello, friends!
It's me GameHampe, the guy behing WDE+. I noticed that a new version of Dink (HD) came out for android and I checked back here. I thought that "Hey, what this engine really needs is a new, fully working, editor." So I started making one a while back. It's being written in java (so it'll be cross-platform), and although it's in early stages in development it's progressing nicely.

Just wanted to make the announcement, stay tuned for a few screenshots soon Any feature suggestions etc are welcome, of course.

I wonder though if you could release a quick patch to WDE+, so that it recognizes dmods in the \(Dink Smallwood HD main folder)\dmods\ folder?

Hey, GlennGlenn, you still here? ^^ I remember you.

A first screenshot and some general design explanations and plans have been posted on my Development log Check it out and see if you like my ideas, or let me know I'm making this for you (and for fun), since I don't plan on making any DMODS

Also, sorry, there'll probably not be any patch for WDE+. All focus is on the new editor and this laptop is not even set up for C++/MFC/DirectX coding.

Oh cool. Another floating window with sprite properties would be nice. And selectable layers for collision, sprites and the background in the screen editor.

Looks nice

I think WDE had this but WDE+ broke it (not sure cos I've never used WDE) but if it showed the sequence and frame when mousing over the sprite that would be useful.
Did think of something else but I've forgotten it, erm.......

What does HJ stand for by the way?

Those will all be in

"I think WDE had this but WDE+ broke it (not sure cos I've never used WDE) but if it showed the sequence and frame when mousing over the sprite that would be useful."
It does that WDE+ does that too, it's toggled with a key.

HampeJava, It just occured to me that it might be a good idea to drop the "H" tho

Went through the menus and pressed every key

There's sprite info, but that only shows sprite number, brain and attached script. I mean that the seq/frame shows up down in the bottom bar, like the screen number and x/y position.

Hey an idea: Hot-Keys! Like, with a sprite selected, have left and right arrow key to decreese increese frame number. Ans scale sprite with for example the mouse wheel....

Oh and maybe a function to generate screens.. Say it creates a grass background with spicific tiles (all plain grass) and the puts out one random stone sprite, two tree sprites and five grass sprites (at random coordinates)...

The only thing I'm asking from this new editor is that you use all your ideas to make the mapping as easy as possible for us lazy mappers. I find the scripting things in WDE+ perfect but the mapping is frustrating!

I have one more feature request, but it would be incredibly hard to implement yet lead to a ridiculously easy creation process.

Would it be possible to introduce some sort of cutscene creator? In other words, where you define the "actors" in the scene and then customize waypoints (move/move_stop) and wait times/dialogue. Anything else the developer wants will probably still have to be done in manual scripting though, to keep it "simple". Basically, even just the movement part would be handy. And even if all that is too hard, maybe just forget about the actors and only include the export waypoints in order functionality

I doubt the map feature will lead to any different map decoration styles. It's just there for overall map planning I'd say. Or better yet, easy dungeon layout.

The "Movie2000" feature in DinkEdit did that. Nobody ever used it, however.
January 4th 2011, 09:58 AM

Oh yeah- I don't think anyone even remembers that. I certainly didn't. The autowarp feature in Dinkedit is excellent, though. (Place the mouse cursor where you want something to warp to, press Alt+W, pick up a sprite, press Alt+W again, and the sprite'll get the warp coordinates.)

No idea if that feature also exists in WDE.

I’m thinking about including a .d decompiler in the editor, since a.) D-MODers could learn a lot from old scripts instead of them going to waste and b.) Everyone pretty much knows how to do it anyway. Any complaints?

No complaints from me. We're way past secretive bullshoot like that these days, encrypting scripts was more of a 90s thing I think.

You're just going to slide it in like the .FF decompiler anyway, aren't you?

*whistle* I had a decompiler planned for WDE+ too, back in the day, but I removed it due to popular demand. But I agree, the community, I think, is ready to move on

Stay tuned, btw, I'll make a post soon displaying all the planned features that will make HJDinkEdit a much easier and superior editor to WDE(+). There's some pretty revolutionary(tm) stuff that I think you'll enjoy

Hi all,

I was waiting for this A new WinDinkEdit! I still use Plus version ^^

A .d decompiler would be a nice featue, I always use other authors scripts to make my new ones, CoD (my unsucessful demo Mod) had a modified Lyna's Story follower as a monster that follows Dink, but I never would be able to do that from scratch ^^
Also, I have a suggestion too ^^

If we had a multi-sprite selection tool? So we could drag a 'square' and select various sprites at once and move them all or input a certain attribute to all them in a single click That's what I've been waiting for a long time.

Staying tuned here

Hmm, that new sprite browser is nice. How are the graphics listed in that? Are they grouped in directories, or alphabetical, or what? And how quick is the loading of the sprite browsers? I know in WDE it's very tedious that as soon as I press 'E' I have to wait 10 seconds of so for the sprite screen to load. But hey, that could just be my PC...

Okay, official test:

And yeah, it's probably just my PC. And the intensity of having a gazillion graphics.

And if those sprites are listed by sequence, GameHampe, how would one be to cycle through the frames in the sequences?

I have another suggestion. Crating sprites in scripts is a little time intensive, so I wonder if it would be possible to integrate sprite libraries with scripting. So, you could use a create_sprite() command and an optional pop up would be displayed that lets you select a sprite from the sprite library. After this, the scripting tool would generate the required lines to set the settings like health, defense, speed, ...

Same thing for player warps, simple cutscenes, ...

It already looks awesome, these things would just be amazing extras

You have to have a file called bscripts.ini which lists sequences and the script. Then when you place a sprite it assigns the script.

A zooming map similar to the Novashell editor would be interesting. It would mean you could do away with the "mini-map preview", and select sprites en masse. Might be slow without gfx acceleration.

A few new ideas. Perhaps a key that you could use to toggle nohit with, similar to the one you can use for hardness toggling. And maybe a bar that would include all the basic sprites such as rocks, trees, bushes, grass etc. placed somewhere in the screen and the sprite which you click on would appear.

Hey guys. Not dead! Just on hold. Lot's of stuff to do, also: spring, which means computer time is really really really limited, since I mainly do stuff on the computer to kill the cold Swedish winter months. But we'll see.

But if it starts to rain a lot we're good.

Well, some work has actually been going on behind the scenes. Mostly optimization, but a few new features has been added. Ill post a screen someday if anyone is interested.

Tag - Umm.. tag, you're it? 
Was wondering about a multi selection of sprites - if that was possible - so you could select a group rather than just one sprite at a time - be able to draw the mouse over some and use them as a group - maybe copy it to another screen delete or whatever? (Just a thought)

Nice job.

Just out of curiosity, why are there two "X" under the Settings? There's probably some simple explanation, but I'm too tired to figure it out right now.

Mr. Gamehampe/chickenfist; perhaps we would all benefit from you releasing a BETA test version for some (or all of us) to test?

I know, the real world (including jobs, school, life, death, and all that) often intrudes upon making software for the fun of it. But it seems that it has been quite a while since you started this project now and it has too much to offer (*) to the Dink Community for it to be allowed to die.

Alternatively, perhaps you would be willing to release the source code to the Dink Community in the hopes that others may take up the banner of your work before it falls into the dust of time and despair, vanishing forever? Or maybe you could enlist the help of others in putting together some of the separate Java classes that make your project work?

Thanks so much for your time and dedication so far...

* (platform independence, new sophisticated map editing techniques, EASE OF USE, multi sprite seletcion, built in script editing, to name but a few!)
