Pin2Dmd Editor

Recommended Posts

Had another write error while opening a recently saved file today like I mentioned on the pinside WCS94 colorization thread, kept the corrupt files this time.  Saved to a USB key, only added two scenes and keyframes and two palate switches.  Did a sort on both the keyframes and scenes right before saving the project as a new version.  Looks like it wrote a bunch of NULs at the end of the script this time.  Running the 64 bit version on a windows 8 computer, editor version is from April 20th this year.  All the animations are up on my google drive:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=15F5QfX8MM-i6xUO8srj1fVqNOkUsuU_k

Do you have the logfile from the crash ?  It should be in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp. 
Here is the fixed version of your project

Unfortunately the logging did not show anything helpful.

That's too bad, must be something with my computer or the way I'm saving it.  I do have quite a few large animations in the file.  I've noticed it takes longer than it used to for loading and saving.  I'll post again with the logs if it happens again.  Thanks for fixing that file for me and looking into it.

It crashed when saving the detection masks, so it has nothing to do with the number or the size of animations.

Just starting on my first colourisation and was thinking if there was a way of copying and pasting a section of the frame rather than the whole frame.

The game I am doing is Tales from the Crypt and several scenes have one object moving but the Keeper's face remains the same throughout.

This would save a lot of manual colouring

Sure, you can copy a part of a frame by selecting the rectangular icon, drawing a frame and then cops&paste it

I tried that but it pasted the whole frame

What I did was

Select the require area with the rectangle tool

Control-C

select next frame

Control-V

I also tried using the buttons on the top right  under the palette selection but they didn't seem to do anything

Try shift-ctrl-V and click into the drawing window

The buttons on the top right are described  here https://pin2dmd.com/chapter-2-coloring-non-dynamic-content-scenes-in-replace-mode/

OK thanks,  got it working

I selected the required area then

ctrl-C

move to next frame

ctrl-shift-V

I then click in the bottom corner of the frame and drag the copied area to it's correct place.

Where you release the left mouse button is where it is placed, to correct an incorrect placement ctrl-V before leaving the frame

I uploaded a new version to google drive.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/18wNl_JbPW4XbvLkJQbT_s_DhHZqwq9CI

I have added a Add2Scene button for easier creation of frame collections needed for e.g. Colormask Layered mode.

Description is integrated here https://pin2dmd.com/chapter-8-advanced-coloring-using-colormask-layered-mode/

I was trying to create a 4 color palette using the editor and what i think was the color prism. I now have an issue, display just shows pin2dmd logo and states stern spike, will not fully boot. It states it is not activated, albeit the key file is still on SD card. I did select reset from menu. any ideas to fix?

That sounds like multiple problems and not enough information.

4 colors palette and Spike pinball ? Spike needs 16 colors ! Is it a Spike pinball machine ?
Key on the SD and not activated = wrong key or keyfile not named correctly. ONLY keys starting with # must be renamed to pin2dmd.key
