BifiMSX and I have been working on a graphic designer for the MSX2. I used to have a tool like this in the past which was very handy to make MSX graphics. The program is called GraCo.

Download it here: http://vampier.net/MSX/GraphicCoder.rom

Here is a screenshot of the final product:

Constructive feedback is appreciated! :)

here are some things you can try. have a look:
msxsite.ryan-da-bass-man.com/spriteseditor.gif

Things which I found very handy and therefore added it:

- Edit multiple sprites at once to create larger (BOSS for ex.) sprites.
- Multiple palettes
- Add a staging/animation scene (very usefull dont have to this in code any more)
- See-thru mode (very usefull to do accurate animations)
- image to sprite conversion
- FlipXY/Rotate/Shift
- multiple edit slots (I used 10 see rightside picture) very handy to do animation while editing.

Well, yes, what could I say! Looks like the editor from RyJuZo is finished!

hmm.. a PC tool hijacking a topic about an MSX tool.. naughty!

Anyway, you did some nice work on the tool Vampier!

With < and > you can move up and down through the colours for the current pixel; however, the > will wrap around to the top, but the < won't wrap around to the bottom. Is that something you did or purpose?
The mirroring and rotating work nicely too.
Shifting a line, column or entire slot to the left/right top/bottom (with wrapping) might be nice too.

Support for loading/saving palettes could be nice too.

And please bring those quick on-screen help texts back ;-)

RyJuZo is anxious to release his tools to the community. He just don't know how yet.
Like a serial killer who wants to be captured.

No offense, but "yeah well, here's another tool" is, in my opinion, not really feedback since it doesn't say *anything* about the subject of the feedback.

Having said that, both graphics tools look quite nice & useful, though aimed at a different goal. RyJuZo's thingy is a sprite editor, whereas Vampier's editor looks like a screen5 16x16 cell editor.

You didn't give feedback to the tool RyJuZo imho.. Mentioning "FlipXY/Rotate" kinda shows that you didn't even have a proper look at Vampier's tool since those features are already in GraCo..

finally.. I'd appreciate it if you would capitalise my nickname appropriately next time..

- For the next version shift will be included.
- Palette saving will be included
- I'll also make a stage editor with real time change views (different program)
