    Need testers for editor

    Most of you know I've been working hard on a tile editor for 2D games. I'm going to need testers very soon for this.

    Last call for testers resulted in a hard disk crash which killed the source. Now I have backups so no worries.

    Here is a screenshot of the program.

    If you decide you would like to test this application please let me know. Source code will not be provided and requests for source code will be denied.

    Setup programs will consist of Setup.exe and TileEditor.msi. Older tile sets will be provided in the install for testing purposes.

    Application should be ready for complete testing by the end of the month.

    I'm very interested Bubba. It will be a pleasure to help. But it will also be to my advantage since I'm very interested on 2D game development.

    Who knows, maybe I come to like it so much, I'll use it for my own projects... in a not so distant future, I hope.

    I'd be interested in testing it.

    Awww, but I wanted to take advantage of your months of slaving over a hot keyboard in seconds!

    You'll release the source when it's finished though, right? Otherwise it's illegal cos everything should be open source. Youuuu'll go to jail11!

    Do we at least get to know the file format for the maps?

    And yeah I'll give testing a go.

    A port to the PSP and DS would be interesting too.

    I'll skip the beta testing, but I look forward to the initial release version.

    The editor should be ready for testing by the end of the week. I have to do the property sheet serialization and creation code (on load the sheet is created along with the property pages). The goal is that the desktop and project will be 'just as it was' when you saved it.

    I'm having problems with the property sheet creation code during loading. When fixed I will begin releasing the exe to those who have expressed interest in testing the program.
