@Dawn: It does sound awesome! I'll try it out when you release the new version of the ToolBox!

rgb-scale (easy to setup gfx mode for 'ancient' plaforms ;)  - and simple, non window based interface

aseprite is for sure more 'modern' soft, better anim, layers etc. 

for me even 'brilliance/dpaint' like shortcuts are adventage :)


user
JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/25/2017 12:24

I'm sure this is a pretty vague question, but how does GrafX2 compare to ASEprite?

Are there any GrafX2 features that ASE doesnt have, or are designed better?


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/25/2017 06:31

@Jinn: The Toolbox is just a folder with scripts & subfolders that can be placed anywhere (but there's a script-folder inside GrafX2 that is smart to use). The Toolbox has a main-script you can assign to a key inside GrafX2, from its menu you can quickly navigate and launch all the scripts (except a handful of key-specific scripts that you need to assign to keys if you like to use them)

That's a great initiative Hapiel

Who would like to see new editions of Stray Pixels/Pixelpourri, the time to time news updates with links to new games, projects from PJers and other recent stuff?
 

Ill be working on reviving these, if you've got anything that should be added there, please do message me :)


user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/25/2017 00:11

If the toolbox is easy as that to instal too, I'm sold :)

Dawnbringer: Holy crap! I'm really looking forward to the updated ToolBox. Awesome!


user
Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/24/2017 19:26

GrafX2 is dead easy to set up. Just download, extract and you're good to go.
I guess the interface and tools can be a bit unusual if you don't have any prior experiences with Deluxe Paint or Pro Motion or similar, but if you spend a few minutes with the help file and figuring out the intertface it shouldn't be a huge problem.
 


user
Jinn (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/24/2017 16:00

It sounds awesome! Never got myself into GrafX2, how easy is it to set up?


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/24/2017 14:03

There's about 100 new scripts and most old scripts have been updated and optimized. 


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/24/2017 13:26

Oohh, sweet! What is getting an update? I've really enjoyed the palette tools in the toolbox so far!


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/24/2017 13:01

Putting the last(?) touches on the GrafX2 ToolBox v1.4...

Guys welcome to the team & thanks for answering to the first ever mod call of PJ :) A total of 5 people answered the call, btw :)

Jeremy just really likes those uniforms :D


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/16/2017 04:50

Jeremy was a mod for quite a few years. So, yeah, I guess you could say he has a bit of a fetish...


user
Irenaart (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/16/2017 03:51

@jeremy; do you have some fetish on mods?

Without moderators there would be no PJ. So guys, .


user
jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 10/15/2017 23:12

fuck tha mods


user
JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/15/2017 16:46

Hap said it perfectly and I'd probably ruin it by repeating it in my own way.  Hap's definitely been a more important figure throughout the life of PJ than I ever will.  In the end I just want to make sure that PJ can be there for a young artist like I was over 10 years ago.  Although I've been more of a silent participant for the last few years, I was still getting to know many of you by reading comments and looking at all the cool new submissions.  This is definitely where I call "home" on the internet.  I hope I'll be able to help this community like all of the mods before me.


user
ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/15/2017 10:40

There is overlap when it comes to who is doing it. But I would not say that they are very related. But you could also see Ascii or Characterset art (ANSI, Petscii or any other set) as a kind of pixelart using a limited tileset, a whole bunch of which happen to be letters and numbers.


user
Asmodeusss (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/15/2017 09:32

Is ASCII art related to pixelart in some way?


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/15/2017 07:17

Good luck, Happie! I always thought you'd be a moderator one day...  


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/15/2017 04:40

Thanks guys, and thanks for all the endorsements last month!

This community means so much to me, and has been important to me for a veeerrry long time. It has helped me grow immensely as an artist, communicator and person, and it has allowed me to make friends even beyond the boundaries of the internet.

In this era (time flies in internet world) where facebook replaced many fora and web communities, I'm very excited to make an effort for this old school community to survive. It serves as a way to connect, share and grow independent of the profit driven goals of social media platforms, and caters to our specific needs. I hope platforms like PJ will remain to exists and allow future generations of internet users to keep on experiencing the freedom of sharing in combination with a sense of community, a sense of belonging.

I am very happy to now have more tools to take action in keeping this place as alive and valuable as it was when I first discovered PJ, over 10 years ago. I'm not sure if I'll always have the time available to do the micro management I'd love to do, but as I'm in it for the long run I'm sure some bigger projects will see daylight. From behind the scenes I hope I can make it even easier to use this community for research, sharing, growing, and keeping PJ firmly in it's position of the internets main pixel art hub.

Thanks for letting me join the team, I promise not to disappoint you!

<3

Also, get hyped for PJ v4! See Sedge's announcement on the main page

Guys the outages should be over soon. Sedge is taking care of it. I just hope he doesn't forget to promote the new mods by the way.


user
Curth (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 10/10/2017 20:10

Outages whenever the cat sleeps on the server and causes overheating? haha

user
dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 10/10/2017 12:38

Yeah, the outages are about the worst I've ever seen here.


user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/9/2017 23:39

Are the outages hosting / bandwidth related, or?


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/9/2017 11:27

There are some plans to fix, change and improve things which involve Sedge, and are therefor getting delayed. In about two weeks from now we should know if they are likely to go through or not, I wish I had something more helpful to say.


user
JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/9/2017 10:16

I love PJ but I'm starting to hope one of these other pixel sites get completed soon just in case. Any recent word on development of those?


user
Irenaart (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/9/2017 05:56

Yeah, here's the same. What's going on with PJ's server?


user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/9/2017 03:21

oh man PJ is down for me so often I barely managed to sumbit to weekly :(


user
Curth (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 10/8/2017 15:11
