ART 4 Windows has been in on and off development over the past year or so and now has a home on Github.
It is being developed in BBC Basic 4 Windows and is compiled into a Windows exe. BBC Basic was chosen as it is easy to understand how everything is programmed, plus I really love BBC basic!
The original inspiration for ART 4 Windows came from a simple BBC basic program jointly programmed by various people on this site, see the full development history here: http://stardot.org.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=12297
Currently the program supports mode 2 (160x256 8 colour) with a dithered palette and various drawing tools, effects, undo, with saving and loading in bmp format. The project is still in early days so there is a lot of room for improvements and feature development.
Pixelblip has created some amazing art with the various ART versions in this thread:
If interested please download, play, modify, create art and suggest improvements:
discuss PC<>Acorn file transfer issues & the use of FDC, XFER, Omniflop/disk etc.
