Tux Paint

Please try it. Let me know what you think :slight_smile:

http://www.newbreedsoftware.com/tuxpaint/

Only an alpha version. Still much to be done!

"Tux Paint is going to be a drawing program for you kids. It provides
a simple interface and fixed canvas size, and will provide access to
previous images using a thumbnail browser (e.g., no access to the
underlying filesystem).

It’s not meant as a replacement for The GIMP, Gpaint or Xpaint, as
it is VERY limited, but it does provide a much simpler interface,
and has child-oriented additions such as sound effects and (eventually)
an animated character (and possibly spoken help, along with textual,
on-screen help).

Tux Paint is to be released under the GNU General Public License (GPL),
and will hopefully become part of the Tux4Kids project, and be
incorporated into the “Debian Jr.” project.

It’s based on SDL, so it should be portable amongst numerous
operating systems (Linux, Windows, MacOS, MacOSX, BeOS, other Unixes,
etc.). It’s being developed on a 450MHz Intel Celeron, but has been
briefly tested on a 133MHz Pentium (no sound) with suitable results."

Enjoy!

repetitive electronic music." --Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc, 1989

Only an alpha version. Still much to be done!

With this in mind, here’s two comments:

  1. Break it up into multiple source files before it becomes too big.
  2. Use SDL_UpdateRects(), not SDL_Flip() in most cases…using the X11 DGA
    target made this run well, but straight X11 was painful…just moving the
    stamp cursor around was > 1 second behind my mouse cursor.

Those caveats aside, I sat here and played with it for longer than I’m
willing to admit. :slight_smile: This oughta be a lot of fun in the end.

I’m not familiar with it.

Looking at Nintendo’s site, it looks to be an SNES game from 1992 that’s
obviously no longer available.

They claim it’s for “kids eight to 80.”

Well, Tux Paint is more like for “kids two to 8” :wink:

Bah! You are WEAK and PUNY! :slight_smile:

Actually, no, you’re right. I’m just lame and lazy. :wink:

I probably will… maybe. Kinda… If I feel like it.

Yes. SDL_UpdateRect() needs to be used, definitely.

Interestingly, it worked quite well on the P133 I have sitting around here.

Eeeexcellent

Clearly you are not familiar with Bill’s style :slight_smile:

It ran quite nicely on my machine, although it is a Athlon 950 with a TNT2.

It was a very kid oriented paint program for the snes. First title to use the
snes mouse, and they sold it originally with the mouse. Couldnt do alot.On 16-Jun-2002, nbs wrote:

Done. New release available. Changes include:

  • Selector has a diff. sfx than toolbar.

  • Replaced SDL_Flip()s with SDL_UpdateRect() where possible

  • Thumbnails (e.g. for stamps) made high-quality (anti-aliased).
    (This is optional, determined at compile-time)

  • Stamp and brush files are sorted alphabetically by filename.

  • Color selector buttons no longer simply ugly rectangles.
    They now look like the other buttons in the program.
    (Thanks to LIM for help with embarassingly trivial alpha-blend code)

  • Tux appears at the bottom giving tips for tools.

  • Stamps may have “tips.” (e.g., click the “Earth” stamp and it
    will tell you something about earth at the bottom)

Please show kids, and give me feedback! :wink:

If you’re lazy, you should definitely be careful with your coding style in general. It saves lots of time.

(I’ve barely been feeling like commenting, which is strange for me.)

It tends to happen when you’re having fun and things work out the way you want. :slight_smile:

Maybe I should look at it… Or maybe not? (aargh!) :slight_smile:
