    I was working on an app to make DS games for a while called DSCreator, but it is a failure so what the heck lets upload.

    It compiles and converts each graphic
    , in the Graphics folder, the graphics you put in there are the ACTUAL name (_Sprite, _Pal)

    I used VB 2008 Express with inspiration from our friend James.
    The save/load does not work and some menu item can't be clicked.

    But there is every single PAlib function in one combo box, and Common functions, too.
    I was mainly using my creation for personal needs, but I'll share it with the world now.
    Also, the Audio's don't work.

    PS: LOTS of bugs, need PAlib installed.

    You mean you started something and didn't finish it? That's not like you.

    You should take better care about your identity Steve, this sort of thing can ruin lives. Try to cover the name at least.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Steve (and his friend Roberto for that matter) is a pretty common name.
    However, combined with his online name might provide a bit more info... though I doubt it.

    At least he doesn't cut off mid sent-

    Anyway, um, well, it's always nice to have more options for homebrew creation, I guess...

    But dude, seriously, you need to finish projects instead of starting one, doing some of it, and never picking it up again. Commit, man!

    Haha. It is funny how you all jump to comclusions over a simple instance.

    This is my Dad's computer, Steve is his name.
    Also, why would I lie about my name ? [​IMG]

    Actually I heard that there was a specific someone (nin-something) that seems to have a slight vendetta against the maker of DSGameMaker that hacks the program and distributes it.
    The only real problem I have with DSGameMaker is the fact that people that want to help the homebrewing community (without the coding experience) have to pay 10-12 dollars to spend countless hours working on something that those very people are probably going to willingly give out for free. That sort of deters those people that can't code for squat (me xD) from being able to do anything for the homebrew community unless I first spent countless weeks learning how to code and then countless months to make something.
    I was sort of hoping that DSCreator was going to be a program made from spite or something, then it actually might have been completed, better than DSGameMaker, and free. I should always remember to "aim for the ground," you can't miss if you aim for the ground -_-".

    Well generally my program is easier than manual. You have the main.c to the right, and the resources to the left. The compile runs the PAgfx system and the build.bat after, easy all around.
