Good start indeed

Sorry for late reply. Still in development. Due to rapid dev time, debt was racked up and with terribly slow sales I have to work. Updates are coming soon. The engine is also going open source soon.

Expected release tomorrow. I'm doing some updates docs.pawbyte.com so I just didn't go through the process of releasing update yet. But it's already ready give or take a couple of pathing related functions/variables.

Hello all,


It has come to my attention that Version 1.11's Scene Editor has a terrible glitch in regards to the Object and Background Default Layers. The issue has since been corrected and will be released in the newest best coming later week in Version 1.12.


For now it it is not advised to create projects in Version 1.11 due to the bug rendering scenes useless.


Sorry for the inconvience.

Looks amazING.

in order to become a greater engine and more competitive in the next update(Version 1.1.0) will come with the a new Layer System replacing the 1-Object, 8 Background and Unlimited* Tile Layer system. With the new layer matrix system on the way it was decided best to limit the amount of layers to 32.


For more information please see http://pawbyte.com/blog/2016/12/09/december-2016-u...


When using 1.1.0 you will be warned when importing older projects that scenes with over 30 tile layers will delete the remaining layers from the scene.

As you may have noticed the latest version for the Game Pencil engine has just been uploaded. The older version had a .zip size of only about 5MB, while the newer version is in the hundreds of MB. The only reason this exists is that we have added electron to support desktop platforms.

Electron is quite huge and we have added copies of it for both Linux and Windows for both 32 and 64 bit systems.


I hope to one day add a way to download electron updates via the editor; but due to time I was unable to provide that sort of mechanism.


A quick note abotu electron. IT does indeed use the FFMPEG library; but it uses the custom electron version that does not use any patented technology.

Can I build a time machine from tiled?

As part of expanding the audience we have launched a new Steam Greenlight page so people can design as they wish anywhere.


If possible please give the engine an upvote now via http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/...


Thank you and have a great day.

More updates were added too. Should be pushed out tonight or tomorrow morning.
