WA EDITOR UPDATES (LATEST V10.2.2 OUT)

Post by Aryan » Fri May 03, 2019 12:30 pm

The Official WA Editor Update Thread
So with the release of WA Editor as open source and the OpenWA repositary, here we have our releases of WA Editor!
We'll be frequently releases major overhauls for editor (basically on per-month basis), with many new features and fixes, so subscribe to this topic now to get notifications of updates! And plus, the WA Editor will also be frequently updated with new updates to editor!

I. WA Editor Current Stable Release Version
The current stable release version is v10.2.2.

A. Download and Installation

Installation: Follow the instructions in ‘how_to_install.txt’ in the zip file.

B. A Guide to New Features
WA Editor now has many new features, see here to know how to use them: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=27852

C. Changes

  • Custom textures applicable to block gates, flipbridges and transporters
  • There are now two types of bridges: one with SubType 1 that respond to colour changes and SubType 0 for backward compatibility

    • Ctrl+Del deletes last copied object from tile (just Del deletes all objects on tile)
  • Added homing behavior added for spellballs
  • Added OSE (Open Source Extension) i.e you can set custom configurations for adventures by using a script file similar to INI
    • Now you can modify general behavior of an adventure using a file named 'options.ose' in the adventure folder
    • Currently only Global section and Version variable is supported
    • It specifies the game if it should run the adventure as it was in legacy editor or in new editor
  • New secret feature (PM Aryan on how to use that)

3. Changes made from starting

Code: Select all

====================
Changelog:
====================

-----------------------------------
Post-OpenWA Releases
-----------------------------------
v10.2.1
- fixed cache-related bugs
- fixed shuttering or tearing in cutscenes

v10.2.0
- swapped all Object#$%() arrays for custom .woi (Wonderland Object Instance) type
- renamed Object to GameObject, Data to ObjData and Type to ObjType to avoid clashes with Blitz3D keywords
- unified object read/write code for editor and player
  - purged editor/editor-buildobjectmodel.bb, editor/editor-meshcontrol.bb and player/adventures/objects-meshcontrol.bb
  - adventure start button now checks if adventure was completed in ControlButton() instead of mesh code
- reworked object mesh creation/loading code
  - code is now shared between editor and player
  - objects are rendered in the editor the same way they appear in the player, just unanimated
  - tweaked mesh creation code to make gaps between surfaces much less visible
  - colour textures are now created from selected button texture and shared in the whole .wlv (uses multitexturing and second UV coordinate set)
  - custom textures applicable to block gates, flipbridges and transporters
  - all colours available for teleporters, gems, cuboids, laser gates and star trails
  - remastered textures for keycards, transporters and both conveyor types
  - stepping stones are available in all colours now because of the multitexturing approach
  - new spring texture displaying spring colour
  - if compiled with BlitzNG, bilinear filtering is removed for level textures (flag 1024)
  EXPECTED: colour 8+ teleporters don't have the colour texture animated, just the stars
  TO DO: keycard meshes already support 8+ colours but they lack inventory icons so colours 8+ are not enabled in the editor yet
- SubType 1 stepping stones and springs respond to all colour changers (SubType 0 stepping stones keep their 8-11 range for backward compatibility)
- Transporters with Data3 1/2 turn left/right like Pushbots, turning direction is displayed thanks to new mesh generation code and new texture
- changed the way custom meshes and object textures are loaded
  - instead of creating an individual copy of each custom texture objects now share them so each texture is loaded just once (saves tons of memory - huge performance improvement)
  - enabled ModelName modifier in the editor, made it work like custom texture (?ModelPath instead of !CustomModel and TextData0, backward compatibility preserved)
  - side effect of the latter: custom meshes can use custom textures without any problem now (see new Custom Tex preset)
  - removed Tex .wop presets and enabled TextureName in all default presets in their place
- unified slash characters, backslash '\' should be considered a special character from now on while forward slash '/' should be used for paths
- added Multi-Object mode in the editor
  - number of objects on tile displayed next to X,Y coordinates
  - Ctrl+Left Click places objects without deleting other objects on tile
  - Ctrl+Right Click cycles copies object parameters cycling through objects on tile
  - Ctrl+Del deletes last copied object from tile (just Del deletes all objects on tile)

I'm sorry but I can't understand what you mean?

There were no commands 14 and 15 in vanilla version of editor. If you mean a command that was there to do some change in music in vanilla version, then it would be command 12 which modifies pitch and volume of currently playing music. There was no such command in vanilla version that would change music.

Command 14 and 15 were added by Alex, these commands change the musics and magics of current levels.

Command 14 changes the music. Data1 is the number of .Ogg file to have the music changed. For eg, if you put Data1 as 8 then the music will be switched to 8.ogg I.e jungle music.

Command 15 gives magic to player with Data1 as number of magic as it appears in editor. Set 0 for Floing, 1 for Pow, 2 for Pop and so on.

In the original post you said command 14 in the update changed magic instead of music. That's what samuelthx was confused about.

Upcoming Adventure: Purple Haze

Re: WA Editor v3.03 Update

Post by Aryan » Sun May 12, 2019 4:53 pm

WA EDITOR UPDATED TO V3.03

NOW FEATURING OFFICIAL SUPPORT FOR BMP AND PNG OBJECT TEXTURES WITH TRANSPARENCY!

How to use?
Simple. Now the editor requires you to enter filename plus extension. So for using "blueduck.png" type "blueduck.png" in place of Default in objects of custom model category and it will translate it to "UserData\Custom\Objecttextures\blueduck.png"

See main post for complete list of changes.

Re: WA Editor v3.04 Update

Post by Aryan » Sun May 19, 2019 2:54 pm

WA EDITOR UPDATED TO V3.04!

FEATURES ADDED:

1. NEW TEST MODE FOR ADVENTURES:When you are on the master screen press Ctrl+T or SAVE+TEST and you can immediately play your adventure! No more need to compile, get past the menus etc. anymore when testing adventures! :)
Also when you abort/exit/complete the adventure you will go back to the editor master screen of that adventure.

2. ADDED A HUB BUILDER: Yes, you can finally create hubs using the editor! :D I will write details later about this mode.

3. ADDED LOGO SUPPORT FOR CUSTOM HUBS: Just place wonderlandadventures.bmp in custom\hubs\yourhubname or in custom\editing\hubs\yourhubname and the hub builder will copy it to custom\hubs\yourhubname

4. ADDED BARREL MAGIC AND PRISMS: See new adventures on how to use them! Special thanks to Sammy_Bro (also known as micman) for adding these new gameplay elements!

5. ADDED NEW GENERAL COMMAND: Command 17 now changes tile logic. Data1 and Data2 are the X and Y coordinates of the tile respectively and Data3 is the tile logic you want it changed to. I'll write a list of supported values later.

6. ADDED SUPPORT FOR CUSTOM MAPS: For maps, you need nine files, mappiece0.bmp texture for slot when current map is not collected and mappiece1.bmp to mappiece8.bmp for each map slot. Place them in UserData\Custom\Maps\[NAME] folder. Now in editor Advanced Options, type [NAME] in Map field and the game will read those files...
See the UserData\Custom\Maps\Fire Island if you don't understand what i mean

7. ADDED SUPPORT FOR CUSTOM GLYPH AND SHARD COMMANDS: View editor "Advanced Options" by clicking in Adv. Options and you'll see that you can add specific general command for each shard and glyph. 0 is for Red Shard, 1 is for Orange Shard, 2 is for Yellow Shard and so on.
Similarly, for glyphs, 0 is for Fire, 1is for Ice, 2 is for Time, 3 is for Friend and 4 is for Home glyphs.


FIXED BUGS:
-fixed minor editor bug where the More adjusters button was not updated when grabbing objects
-data4 of general command 4 was originally intended to change any property of object across the levels (positive for adventures and negative for hubs) however it didn't worked in vanilla version for some reason. This is now fixed!


See main post for credits and downloads! Along with that the credits in-game are also updated with the users who created the mods. Thank you again!

Here are the steps: (make sure to install v3.04 first! BTW you should wait for a few days more before trying out this version as v3.05 is releasing soon with many bug fixes)
STEP 1: Head into your WA Editor folder (the directory in which you have installed WA Editor)
STEP 2: Open "UserData" folder
STEP 3: Find and delete the file "display.wdf"
STEP 4: Get back to WA Editor folder
STEP 5: Find and launch the player.exe file and click on the resolutions - after 1024x768x32 you must get widescreen resolutions like 1280x760x32, 1366x768x32, 1920x1080x32
STEP 6: Now click "Play!"

Yea, all of them are already fixed. And v3.05 should be faster and smoother than older versions.

It should be released within a couple of days.

I have re-updated the zip file with the missing turret asset which caused "Couldn't load texture" error.

But I am surprised that I only got reports by two users on Discord, no reports about that here... looks like the forum is dead now. :(

Re: WA EDITOR UPDATES (LATEST V10.1.0 OUT)

Post by Aryan » Sun Jul 21, 2019 5:51 am

WA EDITOR VERSIONING SCHEME CHANGED!

So now, the versioning scheme of the WA Editor releases by OpenWA is changed, provided the drawbacks due to v3.0x releases of WA Editor versions. (Don't ask why it was used :twisted: )

1. New Versioning Scheme
Now the editor follows this versioning: 10.X.Y
where:
10 = constant number depicting OpenWA releases
X = incremented for every major feature upgrades
Y = incremented for every minor/major tweaks and fixes (quality updates)
If you want, you may also refer to future versions of WA Editor as OWA X.Y or simply OpenWA X.

For instance, if the current version is 10.2.4:
- 10 is the constant number which depicts the release is OpenWA open sourced release
- 2 is the number of the second major feature upgrade after 10.1.0
- 4 is the number denoting that the provided version is the fourth quality update made to the major feature upgrade 10.2

It may be said in posts in PCPuzzle/Discord as:
- OpenWA 2.4 release
- OpenWA 2 release
- OWA 2.4 release
- OWA 2 release
- WA3E 2.4 release
- WA3E 2 release
- And any other naming you like, but everybody should use that

2. WA Editor beta releases versioning scheme
Since we also have our Beta releases section for advanced users to try out the new features, the versioning scheme should not be different here too. And hence, the same versioning scheme will be followed as given above, but with small change.

Now the beta editor follows this versioning: 10.X.Y-BetaZ
where:
10 = constant number depicting OpenWA releases
X = incremented for every major feature upgrades
Y = incremented for every minor/major tweaks and fixes (quality updates)
Z = beta release number

For instance, the beta releases for feature upgrade 10.2.0 would be 10.2.0-Beta1, 10.2.0-Beta2 etc, and then when all is set the final official release version 10.2.0 would be released.
Similarly, beta releases for quality upgrade 10.2.4 would be 10.2.4-Beta1, 10.2.4-Beta2 etc, and then when all is set the final official release version 10.2.4 would be released.

3. WA Editor v10.1.0 release
We are now releasing our first WA Editor build with the new versioning scheme.
It is actually the clone of v3.05 just with version number upgraded to 10.1.0.
And hence, 10.1.0 should now be considered as the first official OpenWA editor build release.

I have also suffixed all "v3.0x" releases to "v3.0x (OLD)" so as to avoid confusions between new and old releases.
Also you might have noticed the "v10.0x" versions came up by me in Open Source forums, those were the "open-sourced" versions of their respective "v3.0x" releases and hence should NOT be confused with the new versioning scheme which starts from 10.1.0.

Hope you like this new versioning scheme!

Interesting. so I assume this will change the way the "broken" magic works, ie. homing spells, old pow, white magic, stuff like that. It appears to have fixed many bugs, and improved jittery-ness which is something I'm dealing with. There also appear to be new commands, I'd like some sort of text file that describes them well so either I make my own or there's already one. If that's the case, is there any chance someone here could provide me with a link? thanks!

This looks good! well done, guys!

WA EDITOR UPDATED TO V10.2.0
Yep, the new release of the editor is ready with many more new things!

1. Features Since 10.1.0
  • You can now select almost any colour between 0-15 for teleporters, gems, cuboids, laser gates and star trails
  • Bridges and springs are now available in all the colours
  • Custom textures applicable to block gates, flipbridges and transporters
  • There are now two types of bridges: one with SubType 1 that respond to colour changes and SubType 0 for backward compatibility
  • Enabled ModelName modifier in the editor, made it work like custom texture - ?ModelPath instead of !CustomModel and TextData0, backward compatibility preserved
  • Side effect of the latter: custom meshes can use custom textures without any problem now (see new Custom Tex preset)
  • Removed Tex .wop presets and enabled TextureName in all default presets in their place
  • Added Multi-Object mode in the editor
    • number of objects on tile displayed next to X,Y coordinates
    • Ctrl+Left Click places objects without deleting other objects on tile
    • Ctrl+Right Click cycles copies object parameters cycling through objects on tile
    • Ctrl+Del deletes last copied object from tile (just Del deletes all objects on tile)
  • Added homing behavior added for spellballs
  • Added OSE (Open Source Extension) i.e you can set custom configurations for adventures by using a script file similar to INI
    • Now you can modify general behavior of an adventure using a file named 'options.ose' in the adventure folder
    • Currently only Global section and Version variable is supported
    • It specifies the game if it should run the adventure as it was in legacy editor or in new editor
  • New secret feature (PM Aryan on how to use that)
  • Now you can use hotkeys for saving or loading games
    • L+[NUMBER] loads the game from save slot [NUMBER] if it exists
    • Ctrl+[NUMBER] saves the game to slot [NUMBER]
  • New "undo slot"
    • If you load a save, the current game is saved in "undo slot"
    • If you overwrite a save, then that save is saved in "undo slot"
    • To access the "undo slot", press L+U
  • New option to switch font in Settings screen
  • Toll gate now supports negative cost# values
  • Coin gate with negative cost# value will have its cost: PlayerCoins+Cost(or -Cost since it is negative)
  • Added custom cutscene feature
    • new editor ui for building cutscenes
    • cutscenes are saved in adventure dir with [NUMBER].cut
    • command 101 with data1 [NUMBER] of .cut file can call the cutscene
  • custom adventures are now saved and loaded from cache
2. Improvements Since 10.1.0
  • Lots of tweaks and bug fixes
  • Unified object read/write code for editor and player hence objects appear same in both editor and player
  • Colour textures are now created from selected button texture and shared in the whole .wlv
  • Remastered textures for keycards, transporters and both conveyor types
  • All the custom textures are loaded only once and shared between the objects (huge performance improvement)
  • Object Oriented Programming used for objects which speeds up editor (player needs testing)
  • Included GNU FreeMono font so font display is less OS-dependent
