    So what exactly does this do in comparison to the GS creator? Is it a separate download? Has it been integrated in the GS creator? And why did this topic rise up to the top of the announcements section? Lol. :smile:

    @Twayne2 - It's simple! :smile: It's a GREAT tool (yep, a separate downloadable desktop app), by a dedicated user @Manto , for EASILY creating and modifying GS levels / layouts in existing projects - uses your GS project file to show actors, levels, etc, and modify / copy levels and actors to your heart's content - then writes directly back into your project to update it!... ...it has ZOOM, SNAP TO GRID, copy / paste, lots of great functions that should really be in GS - fantastic and FREE, a great community tool, and hugely appreciated!

    Oh - and a fresh comment will always bring a topic to the top of the list, as this one will now do! :smile:

    Woah, that's a long time! :smiley:

    Any feedback? What do you like/hate the most? Is something missing?

    There’s lots missing but it’s free, I mainly use it for tile placement and that’s it really! It’s just so much faster having snap to grid and a sort of tile placement tool, just give it a try :)

    What I tend to do is fill my scene with every tile the level will require within GS so I can then just duplicate them around the level using the level editor, make sure you have your tiles sorted into the required layers first in GS though,

    Great work!

    • Select multiple actors
    • Grid, snap-to-grid
    • Zoom In/Out
    • Positon, size, rotation input fields for fast changes

    These features SHOULD really be inherent in the GS editor(!) <3

    Thanks! Nice to hear the editor is still useful!

    i love this app. the only thing i would love to see added to it is the ability to print a scene on a page. best thing i've seen anyone make to complement gs.
    thank you for making this.

    Would be nice if this could be developed to replace the current GS editor ?

    This sounds like a great tool!!, I am having trouble though getting it to run, once you download the "windows" folder how do you get the program to install and run on your computer and get it into Gamesalad? Thanks.

    it runs separate/parallel to game salad. so if you run both, make your project and template layer in gs, save it, then while keeping gs open, also open the level builder. design your level in level builder, save it. then if you need to tinker with the logic in gs, on the edit menu i think it is, click revert to saved, and your newly designed level will be in gs.

    i’d recommend making a dud side project to have a play around with while you figure out the functions.

    Wow. Thank you! Very impressed. Does anybody know what the script editor does?

    This is correct. I would have wanted to add the level editor as a plugin to GameSalad, but that wasn't possible. Nice to hear people are still using it :blush:

    The script editor didn't get finished. The plan was to enable those who wish to manipulate the selected actors using JavaScript. In the released version you can write for example actors.setx(100) to set the x position of all selected actors to 100. But the script editor doesn't even support sety so it's not really useful.

    @Manto any chance you would make the source code available? Not sure how much time I have, but I would try to improve it if it was available.

    Here's the source code https://github.com/mantoone/level-editor . It's written in Scala and you probably need to download Scala IDE to run it. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Wow. Thank you.

    @Manto Any possibility you could update this to allow the windows GS project to be loaded. When I try, it just has an inital blank scene and nothing loads. Due to the latest GS Mac release (97) crashing within 2 minuts of use, I have to use the less but annoying buggy windows version of GS.

  • MantoManto Member Posts: 795

    @Chris Fitsimons I have quite little free time nowadays, but could you share some simple project that fails to load so I can check and fix the tool whenever I have time? Don't share any real project, just something simple.

    Hi. I re-downloaded the app and it now works. Not sure why it did not work before.
