Hope you're still working on this Vincent - I love having easy access to the Doom font, but I'm still dicking around in MSpaint to get the small letters.

For anyone else in this boat, I reccomend setting your Zandro resolution to 300x200, use unscaled font, type whatever you want and take a screenshot. I usually do it against a solid black background. If it seems like a lot of screwing around, that's because it is ;) If anyone has a better way of doing it, please let me know.

Really hope you update this again! It would make a great addition to /idgames as a utility.

Hehe, yes I am. :)
It's just that it takes time to implement the custom charts... There's alot of bug testing to be done. I also have a little hard time getting time over to work with it. But I asure you, it's not abandoned. ;)

The hardest things to do are:
Saving, Exporting, Opening and caching custom charts.
Being able to make a fully custom chart with custom offsets.

It doesn't use wads.

You will be able to do similar recoloring with the chart editor, though.

Well everyone, I am finally finished with Doom Writer version 2.0.0 and Doom Writer Chart Editor version 1.0.0.
I will publish it tomorrow afternoon (Mon 17th November, GMT +1), since I didn't get time to both publish it and update the post today...

There were however a few bugs that I weren't able to correct... They're not very big though :D

Hi Omegalore!
I just saw your post, even though you deleted it (got an email notification)...
It may happen that some browsers are warning for files to be dangerous because not so many have downloaded it. If you trust it you should just ignore the warning.

I guarantee however that Doom Writer is virus free! :)

Sorry for the mega-bump, but have you considered uploading this to idgames? This program is incredibly useful, and it's unfortunate that many mappers/modders still don't know of it's existance. There are many other utilities on idgames, so I see no reason this would be rejected. I think it could give it the expose it deserves, and help newbie mappers a bunch with the headache that is giving maps custom names :)

I don't care about bumps. ;)

I have tried to upload something to idgames once, didn't work.
But I could indeed upload DW there. :)

Just wanted to post a little update...

This is not dead yet! :D
- Yes, that's correct. I have not yet stopped working on Doom Writer.
Instead I've started on version 3.0.0, completely from scratch.
When I first created Doom Writer, I was pretty new to handling bitmaps and images. But as I've worked more, and more on it and other applications, I've learnt alot more about the subject. The previous versions of Doom Writer had long, messy code. Version 3.0.0 will have more organized code (especially for the rendering of the text), which will make it much faster for me to update! YAY! :D

I would also like to thank everyone that so far have helped me out with feature suggestions and bug reporting! You've helped me alot guys. :biggrin:

And now to my final announcement. I have now released the full source code to Doom Writer v1.2.7, which can be found here: https://github.com/Visual-Vincent/DoomWriter



Have a good summer, everyone!

Please, for the love of god, DON'T INCLUDE THE VERSION NUMBER IN A GIT REPOSITORY'S NAME.
It's just plain wrong.
There's this thing called tagging.
Use it.

Code: Select all

<Decay> csnxs try being less bitter and actually helpful to the community, thanks
