Software News   Software News : A Fantastic 2D Game Animating Tool
   posted by Sidewinder on 30-Mar-2012 22:17:33 (1905 reads)
I just received the following note from Mike Parent, member of the Natami team, Amiga enthusiast, and professional pixel artist. He's been working hard on a new artistic tool for use in 2D games. The tool is called Spriter, it's nearing completion, and there are already projects in the works that make use of this tool for new Amiga games!

"Hi everyone,

This is Mike at Brashmonkey.com

The beta version of the all new Spriter, a highly optimized 2D game animation tool, is finally available. What makes it special is it's specifically for creating animations for games!



It doesn't just export sequential images of full frames, it can also export the actual animation data in XML format, so game engines can recreate all the animations using just the original source images (like body parts) thereby saving massive amounts of VRAM and disk space. It will also support tons of game specific features, like visually placing unlimited collision rectangles per frame (with names and numeric values for each!), unlimited action points per frame, unlimited named variables can be changed per frame, and sound effects can be triggered per frame. It also supports an awesome feature called “Character Maps” which lets you show, hide, or replace images from specific folders on the fly to make game features like customizable character appearance and changes in weapons, armor, etc super easy and efficient.

Please check out the Kickstarter page to learn more and for the link to download the free beta version.

We'd love your feedback, suggestions, and support so we can make Spriter hands down the ultimate 2D game animating tool.

Thank you very much."

It output:
"animated characters could be possible on PC, MAC, PS3, XBOX360, Wii, Android, iOS, and Flash. "

I prefer we put our money to AMiga related things. Not on this kind of c***.

As if I was going to give away money for a Windows software.

I even wonder how the news could have been validated here on AW...

I agree.

If it said Amiga then it would be most welcomed but finance projects for other operating systems? No thanks.

Not really Amiga news IMO.

Still a nice development for windows users and good if it is being used for Amiga software.

Amiga enthusiast, member of Natami, yet, version for almost all platforms less Amiga?

I thought the news would be "new tool for Amiga and Natami almost ready"

And on this tool, I downloaded and installed, but fails at runtime Win.

Why is it news here if it does not run on Amiga in one form or another ?

Blame me for that.

I read it and "thought" that it was "Amiga" software for games development, and I "thought" I selected an option to post it in the software discussion forums and not on the news page.

Obviously I roostered up somehow. I shall correct it.
