The sprite editor which I discussed last week has come together pretty well. I ended up dropping the idea of display a list of the animations and decided to go with something a little flashier: animation previews. You can now see a preview of all animations in a sprite without having to click anything. This will hopefully be visibly appealing AND useful.

I've begun work on the map editor (referred to as a cell editor for reasons unknown to even me) and I am thus far pretty happy with it.

I'm going to try to start posting more information about the code for this editor and my game. If nothing else I'd like this blog to serve as more then just a reminder to me that I have projects I should be working on. I'd love to be able to host guides and articles about game development in general. Today, however, I must focus on real work. I do have a full time software development job that takes precedence over everything game development related. A shame to be sure.
Until next time...
