@neauoire nasu's savebmp function does not work on macOS.

SDL_GetWindowSurface is returning null, and SDL_RenderReadPixels does not work with NULL as the rect.

does this fix work for you?

Big canvas and some minor usability changes. I might add select/move/clipboard to the canvas area. Off to the pub for now though. :)

Works pretty well now. Time to smooth off some of the rough edges. Then clean up my terrible code. :D

Matched the number's backgrounds to the colours used in the character picker. I'll probably only use 2 colours for the stuff I want to do, but may as well keep supporting .chr format, it's nice.

Now to add key/mouse colour picking. At the moment it's just eye dropping from the canvas area.

Back to the chr art editor... trying to work out a good way to handle colour picking. The .chr format has 4 possible colours per character. I want the ability to pick different palettes for each tile, which means some awkward selection of 4 colours from a set. Pressing a number 1-4 while over a colour, and showing that number against the color in the palette would work but it seems a bit clumsy. Maybe I'll also allow left/right click to set col 1-2 and then 3-4 with shift-click as well.

Tile selection and painting works properly. :) Next, right-click to pick tile from the map, then colours. After that resizable tile maps.

it's slow going, I'm a bit exhausted this week. had a disappointing day sailing, got drunk afterwards, then limped through the first two days of work so far. going to leave it here for tonight and read. Thursday I will try to make the tile selection/painting work properly.

Making a little tile map/nametable tool. I was using an old version of Nasu for this sometimes, but it didn't handle palettes in the way I wanted so I'm hacking away at new Nasu and turning it into something else.

Last year I hoped to read 25+ books and clear out my bookshelves. I read 6!

I used to read so much as a kid, now it takes me a month to get through some books. Maybe I'll aim for 12 this year.

I don't think people realize why its important to remove white supremacists from your board/forum/web community.

- They are extremely motivated.
- They have a tradition of recruiting via meme(in the classic sense).
- They have centuries of effective propaganda.
- They will take over. Slowly at first then suddenly.
- They will always create more moderation work for you. They will never stop pushing.

Every society struggles with this. And it's not some conspiracy.

dumb name, but it looks like there's some alternate society/civ stuff that I will find interesting.
