KS Editor Mod
« on: March 25, 2009, 01:20:21 »
Hey everybody. I've been working on a modification of the KS Editor.

Level Editor Modification by Looki, 2009

New features:

* Open a world by double-clicking it.
* Open a world by searching for it in the input box above the list.
* Hold down the arrow keys when navigating through the world.
* Custom objects are displayed on-screen if "Screen->Show custom objects" is set.
* In-built INI Editor with syntax highlighting:
---Press F3 or "Script" left to the tileset settings. Reload the original file by "Edit->Reload World.ini".
---(NOT WORKING) You can press on a room's group, e.g. [x1000y1000], to jump to the room.
---The font can be changed in Worlds\EditorSettings.temp.
* Tile replacing, Press Shift+Right click. Like Flood Fill, but not only for connected tiles.
* Rectangular selection: Select multiple tiles at once.
---You can right-click a tile to keep the current selection rectangle. You can press F to reset it.
* Rectangular filling: Hold down Ctrl while placing tiles. You can select multiple tiles to fill using a pattern.
* Undo, Press Ctrl+Z or "Edit->Undo". Undo only works for object and tile placement.
* Flood Fill, Press Shift+Click. Use can select multiple tiles to use a pattern. Only for tiles (single layer).
* Minor fix for German users by setting "Qwertz" in EditorSettings.temp to 1 (Z gets Y, bank-changing shortcut).
* The executable to use for testing is read from "Executable" in EditorSettings.temp.
* Press Ctrl+G or "Go to>Coordinates" to jump to a screen by entering its coordinates.

The Worlds folder only contains a EditorSettings.temp file which has to be updated in order to be able to test your level.

One note, undo only works per screen. If you switch the screen, all the undo information is lost.

I hope you like it as much as I do!  >)

Get it here!

Flood fill?
UNDO?

 :nuts:

EDIT: This is awesome! The only problem I could find was that you can't undo a flood fill. Also, why does it say "Knytt Stories - Level Editor 1.1?

It should.  The editor doesn't do the CO work, really.  If it works like I think it does (and reads images from the Data directories, and writes values to the map file without needing to know if an object exists), then it should be fine :D

So Level Editor 1.1 in KS folder 1.2.1 would still be able to test COs?

Actually, no. The first Level Editor didn't have Bank 255, so I don't think it would work. :/ Try fixing that, Looki.

Thanks a lot, guys. :)
I'm planning to add undo for flood fill, it shouldn't be that hard. Can't access the source code right now, though.
I also wanted to add rectangular selection onthe tileset, instead of single tiles, so you can easily place trees etc.
LPChip: Sorry for that :oops:

Oh by the way, I took the "No dev edition" source, silly me. I even have MMF2 Developer, so I could've used the latest version of the Editor...

I added that new selection mode. It works perfectly, but I can't release a new version right now.

I added the new selection feature. As I said in the changelog, you can press F to reset the selection size to 1x1, and you can right-click a tile to select it to keep the "selection rectangle".
