Quick question @Good-Es – if you were using an art pad, how long would your longest stroke be? Stroke = the sequence from first touching the screen all the way until you lift. Basically, how long would you keep your finger pressing the screen for?
(Currently the limit I’m thinking in terms of storing the stroke is about 2.5 minutes. I don’t see anyone taking that long for one stroke, but I’m curious on what your thoughts are?)
Cool. It’s really just a matter of how many digits to store when telling the drawing pad how long a stroke is. The next shortest option would be ten times less, so about 15 seconds, and I think that could be pretty limiting.
Multiplayer games really are something, I tell you. When I first did the soccer balls experiment, it was the same thing. I love seeing multiplayer in action, and hopefully this is the start of something big
Cool, sounds good
I think 2.5 minutes is the right amount then, since the next shorter time limit would be 15 seconds (which also means if the project runs at 120FPS, say, on a high refresh rate screen, it will be 1.25 minutes)
The little triangle next to L0 is the “redraw layers button”. It changes color when you draw on a layer that’s under another layer that has data so you know when there’s recalculations that can be made.
Open to questions with the exception of asking what the secret feature is :)
Undo/redo is working – still have a few small changes but largely done
Question: Would you find it helpful if you could delete one stroke from the layer permanently WITHOUT it having to be the last stroke? (Meaning, if you drew a 1 in one stroke, then a 2, then a 3, you could remove only the 2)
How much do you want this?
Currently, I have it so that when you press undo, it doesn’t redraw the whole layer. What I’m thinking of doing is showing an indication of which stroke was affected, but wait until the user wants to redraw their stroke so that you don’t have to wait for the whole thing to redraw every time you want to undo a stroke (sometimes you’d want to undo several at once). Thoughts?
How much do you want this?
Thinking about the ability to hide layers so you can focus on one at a time.
Basically when you enter the trail block, it puts the pen down (starts trail), and when you exit, it lifts the pen up (stops trail). So I wait until the screen is no longer pressed to release, but I set position every frame
try not to bump topics with autoclose timers :)) you could ask questions like this in ytaco, so that it autocloses if no. for example with this, in the ytaco, you could ask:
hey @/awesome_e, i saw your update topic for drawing pad x, and it hadnt been used for a while but it had an autoclose timer. should i leave it or are you updating it?
hope this helps
