New JJ1 Editor

27 Jan 2009 at 23:34

Newspaz has just released a new editor for making JJ1 levels. You can find it at the link above.

While it’s true that we already have an editor for just this purpose, this new editor carries a number of features that the old one does not, and has a better, more professional interface overall. One of the great things about this editor is it actually feels like JCS, although it’s not a clone of it or anything.

The program seems to work fairly well on different operating systems, so it’s not just limited to windows. Unfortunately, documentation is limited right now, so you will have to learn by experimenting. Knowing about JJ1 and knowing how to make levels in JCS would also probably help. Doubble Dutch has released some initial documentation, mostly for events, which should make using this program a lot easier.

Mike mentioned that there are new features, and I felt I should mention that one of those is that you can actually save levels without losing lots of data, unlike in JCS’94. Before, it was impossible to make levels with enemies that shot at you, sound was messed up, (most?) bosses didn’t work, and so on. Now, not only does all that stuff save, but you can even edit it!

I made a semi-automatic shotgun weapon that shoots screaming Jazzes out really fast. Really funny.
Still, it’s WAAAAAY better than J1CS…

I’m very proud of you, Newspaz. Your programming skills are much better!

Aaah, great to see this. I think I shall have to post some documentation.

DD: Please do, a bunch of people (not necessarily myself) would benefit from documenting all this.
