Game Construction Kit: RedPill 0.7.2
RedPill is a Game Construction Kit written in AmiBlitz2, which can help developing games of diverse genres - published videos show versions of Pacman and Mirror. RedPill is compatible to AGA and ECS, the "player" requires 1 MB Chip as well as some Fast RAM.

If you are about to update your previsous (0.6.x) version, you will notice that opening an existing project might take a longer time to load - the program is correcting a wrong calculation of the number of levels of the previous version.

Changes in version 0.7.1:
  • Export added in main screen to export the project into an encrypted .redpill file. This file can only be opened from the Redpill player.
  • Export will create a folder named export, this export folder is the distribution folder of your game.
  • Now each map can have its own tileset, the palette will be adapted to the spritesheet palette if there aren't enough colors available.
  • This also means each level now has its own palette saved in a separate file
  • Help for triggers is available inside the editor, just select a trigger and press the Help key. Sadly it is not finishing and not all triggers are documented, but it will come.
  • Condition triggers had a general optimization resulting in faster condition evaluation.
  • Level object screen has been changed to allow editing in a simpler way, several issues have been fixed.
  • Object triggers can be exported to text for easier and global visualization.
  • External text editor can be set in the icon, just like the image editor.
  • In the HUD, the icon sprite used can be set with either a number or number variable.
  • Added manual sprite cut to manually cut frames from a spritesheet.
  • Added action trigger Angle to target that sets the GO angle to point the target, useful for shots and many more.
  • Added action trigger Tiled Move to move objects in tiles.
  • Added action trigger Tiled Push to push other others away when moving objects with Tiled Move.
  • Collision boxes changed to the old (and better) routine.
  • Animation frames can now last less than 0.05.
  • Tabs added in the level editor screen for faster ediing.
  • Minimap tab added to the level editor for quick visualization of tiles and game objects, and map repositioning.
  • Sound Generator added to create new sounds inside the editor, the save feature uses DataToIff V1.1 - Sound File Conventer - Written by Janne Saarme 1990-1992.
  • Bouncing example added in the examples directory.
  • Pillman game example has been added to the projects folder.
  • Red color has been added in the editor for some menus and UI elements.
  • Dialog engine noe uses AGA colors when the game is AGA.
  • Added protection code to the custom load font, if font is not found it should not break.
  • If the background sprites cannot be loaded then level sprites are deactivated.
  • Frame has been removed from the HUD Bar element
  • HUD Bar element now can show timer variables.
  • Issue fixed with HUD texts numbers not being erased correctly.
  • Fixed issue with triggers Hit->CustomX not working properly.
  • Lumberjack platform by Lemming880 has been added to the projects.
Changes in 0.7.2:
  • Parts of the HUD were erased under certain circumstances, this has been fixed.
  • Camera Follow now doesn't follow the Object when it is not active.
  • In Grid Slice, an empty frame was considered, reducing the number of available frames, this has been fixed.
  • Set Speed C action triggers now changes the side the Object if facing.
  • Set Speed X from var now takes into account the side, if side is left speed X will be negative.
  • Some glitches removed when switching between menus.
  • Minor fixes in audio.
  • Some other minor fixes
