aight I don't even know what I'm reporting here but I start a new project 128x128 12 fps and All I get is these here windows no matter how long I wait for em to initialize. Windows 8 64 bit. (Upgrading to 10 as we speak to try use this dope looking tool though)

Developer

Hi, I upload a new version that records errors. Can you try with it and if you see an error.log file appear on the main folder, send me it...

(I have to confess that I only try the tool with windows 7 and windows 10... I... windows 8 scared me... But I will looking for it to do some tests...)

Hmmm I cannot get this working on mac:

if I run my nwjs project without the zipped Painted Of Persia it will just run the default start screen of nwjs so the setup seems legit. But if I add the zipped Paint of persia folder to as app.nw to Contens/Resources/app.nw. It will exit with this stacktrace:

I had to remove somethings because it was too long I've just added (...) where I've removed part of the call stack.

Hi,

Thank you to try this on mac!

I had coded something "just in case" for the mac menubar, but never tested it. It was a bad idea.

I upload a new version without this (you should have the default nwjs menubar, but this doesn't matter...)

Thx, I got it one step further with your fix. Now the app crashes when I created a new project, or click on "Quick Tour". It it related to the menu also "Item to be inserted into menu already is in another menu", some more details here:

2016-06-26 21:51:31.393 nwjs[4320:293985] *** Assertion failure in -[NSMenu insertItem:atIndex:], /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppKit/AppKit-1404.46/Menus.subproj/NSMenu.m:713

2016-06-26 21:51:31.394 nwjs[4320:293985] Item to be inserted into menu already is in another menu

Developer

Ok, I think to see where the problem is, I tried a quick fix and upload it...

Please disable shortcuts while the focus is away from the main screen, such as in the "Export" dialog.

Developer

Ah, it's a bug, normally shorcuts are disabled during export... What kind of export did you do?

That said, shortcuts are enabled even you don't have focus on app, maybe that's what you are talking?

I do this because when I used this tool, I did "Ctrl S" always even when I changed something on my browser... So I made this choice and let the possibility to disabled shorcuts on Edit menu... I don't sure it's the right choice, I wait feedback and will try to polish the shorcuts controls...

Developer

change the way that shortcuts works on the 0.2.1 version

Good job! it's working on mac now, thx :)

Developer

Yeah!

(WINDOWS 7 Pro x64) If you use the select tool, then you want to use the rectangle (or ellipse) tool it always draw dashed line and I can't figure out how to restore (program restart helps) you can even change the width of the dashed line which is very nice! but no option to get back to normal rectangle.

Also shortcuts seems very aggressive, I cannot even write comment here, because it swallows my U,E,I letters and the spaces

Developer

funny bug, thanks for report.

And yes, I have to change the way I implement shortcuts...

Hi, I would asking you, how I can change the theme? Unfortunatelly the transparency function doesn't work.

Developer

Hi,

Right-click on the desktop then Personalize

Or Control Panel -> Apparence and Personalization -> Change the theme

Hi, nice tool!

On my Mac using nwjs.app, it steals the keys, when open. For instance, the space key is trapped.

The fill-tool fills the whole image, when clicked in the transparent area.

Developer

Hi and thanks!

bug 1: I'm working on rethink the shortcut implementation, the next build should fix it.

bug 2: I don't understand the second bugs? If your image is fully transparent, this is normal, if not, was it a completely close shape and it fill an other transparent area? or is it fill even allready draw area? Is there any error.log file in the app folder?

Hi!

Bug2: Hm. Tried it a second time, just before answering. It works. So, please ignore this :-)

Thanks!

Developer

Ok, if it happens again, tell what the last tool you used before fill, maybe it's part of the problem...

Hello!

It is possible I am doing something wrong, of course, but the window is never transparent here.

I am using Windows 7 (64 bit). I do have Visual Studio installed, so theoretically, it might be referencing debug runtime DLLs, but that seems unlikely. The video card is Intel 4 Series Express, which may be incompatible with the GLES library you are using, but I do not have enough to test that. It is not throwing an error, it believes it is running correctly and does not generate an error.log file.

Thank you for the cool idea, appreciate any help you might have in getting it to run here.

Developer

Hi,

If you don't show any bug report, the simple solution I think, and i hope that's the good one, is to change your theme (Control Panel -> Apparence and Personalization -> Change the theme) and don't choose a classic theme.

If it is not working, search if there is an error.log near the .exe.

If there is nothing, problem may be on nwjs. So we had to understand what do that, and let an issue on their github...

Hello,

This is an awesome project. But Iam currently using Yosemie . Could you outline the steps that I must take to make it work on Mac ?

Thanks in Advance :D

Developer

Hi, I just posted a short tutorial here: https://itch.io/t/28706/linux-and-mac-users

Hi, [Windows 7 x64]

  • Sometimes the undo function doesn't work until the program is restarted. This occurred once after I used the selection tool and accidentally right clicked and the selected image got stuck, I tried pressing CTRL+Z but it unfortunately did not work anymore.
  • After using it for a while (and minimizing twice if that helps), the transparency slider couldn't be click+dragged, but it worked if I clicked anywhere on the bar, if I did a click+drag, it gets stuck.
  • Sometimes the transparency slider and some windows are not responding (loading cursor) but the other windows work just fine.
Developer

Hi, thanks for report, try to correct the first two for the next version.

For the third, I don't show loading on non-responsive part (so you understand you can always move or resize window during a waiting part), but maybe it's a bad idea...

(Edited 1 time)

Hi, I've been having some troubles with the tool. My main SO is windows 8.1, when I first started the tool the quick guide worked fine, but since then everytime I start it it shows the windows in white and just doesn't start. I tried using it in windows 7 in a virtual machine. There it starts without problem but the transparency doesn't work. I tried changing the theme but it didn't work either. I've triying everything this pass days, I'm despeared to use this great tool but I don't know what else to do. In the error file that it creates in windows 8 it says that it cannot charge the setting.json and when i try to force close it, it says that njws stopped working. Hope you can help. Please don't stop developing this tool, It has great possibilities.

Developer

Hi, that windows 8 bug is really annoying, I'm sorry, I have to investigate more on it...

Maybe if you want to help, you can download this version: https://framadrive.org/index.php/s/CtCk7uq0Qr7A2dV that opens a console at start and send me ( dunin(at)laposte.net ) what's this console show when the bug arrives...

Sure, I'll help you out. I think this tool has great possibilities. It would be my pleasure to help you as a tester. I'll pass to you the bugs and errors I encounter. I have tried it in windows 8 and 7 but I can try it in other OS's (except 10 because I can configure it right in the virtual box). Hope the tool grows in popularity ;)

Developer

Hi, I did some tests with a VM, the bug is really strange, I have to investigate more but for the moment I do a little fix that works (I hope) but the risk is to lose the saved swatches...

(Edited 1 time)

Hi, i don't know if i'm doing something wrong, but my canvas size is always white, and i can't see what's behind it. I use the x32 version in my windows 7.

Help please

Developer

Hi,

Did you try to change your theme?

Classic themes disable transparent windows...

Oh yeah! Works

Great job!

Hi! I love this program, but I cannot open any of my saved files! I get the same "cannot load so and so" error log no matter how i link the file. I'm just hoping the animation is not lost! Thanks!

Developer

Hi, sorry for that strange bug, I have to investigate...

But normally if you could save, animations aren't lost (check if save files aren't empty, you can open it with a text editor)

What are your configuration and the version you use? Did you use a sandbox?

And just to be sure I understand well: can you tell me exactly when you get the error, after browsing and choosing a file I guess?

Hi, Thank you for the quick reply! I had been using 0.3 on mac, placing the nwj in it's folder and it worked fine. I spent a few hours making an animation at 128x128. I Saved as, and exited. (no export as i wanted to finish later) Coming back the next day I have not been able to open recent, or open the file by searching for it. I'll click the file and nothing will happen, but I'll get an error log like this,

failed to load chrome-extension://dnlcphfbppfamdbgagjjeakmghplikll/Users/mstoneking1/Documents/baikin.ptop

or any path I place the saved ptop file in. I was able to open the file i animated in text edit and it definitely still has content!

Any help would be appreciated!

thanks

(Also, i must note that all versions of Ptop have ran on my mac, so I went to the older ones and they could not open the file as well. Perhaps my setup for saving is incorrect?)

Developer

Hi, I did a bug fix (v 0.3.1) that corrects this bug (test on OSX 10.10.5, but must work for all).

That's not the full support of mac spec (I want to set menu on the mac way and bundle an app...) but it is usable with nw.js, and you would be able to open your .ptop files!

Developer

I finished the mac port!

Developer

I see, I really have to look at mac specific aspects.

I will look at this asap.

Ok, thank you! I will donate money if it is resolved!

Please disable shortcuts when hexadecimal textbox is on focus.

Developer (Edited 2 times)

Hi, thank for reporting, it's fixed on the new build.

rather weird, on Win 7 32- bit, the canvas is rather weird, most of the time, when i try to click on it, it just clicks on what's behind it, sometimes I can only click on a section of the canvas, it almost never works, Any suggestions?

Developer

Wow, really weird, I can't reproduce it. But sorry for the bug, I will try to fix it...

Can you give-me more precision:

  • if you open the Quick Guide (in the "?" section), do you see John Steed?
  • Is the bug already effective at open or is it a thing that arrived after you move the window or resize it? 
  • Can you send-me a screenshot with an indication of the area where canvas work and where it doesn't?
