    Pocket Physics v0.4
    Now with saving/loading of creations
    [​IMG]

    That one feature you've all been yearning for in this otherwise fantastic little toy. In addition to the save and loading, there is now a new smart pin placement method, which allows you to move around pins you've already placed. Deletion of objects works in the same way. Full changelog and download below.

    [title:Changelog] * Saving and loading! (introducing the XML-based .pp file format)
    * Smart pin placement: While the pen is on the screen, you can move the pin around. It's position is fixed when you lift the pin. While you drag the pin around, the objects that are about to be pined are highlighted.
    * Smart deleting: Deleting also works just smart pin placement. Also, pins can now be deleted.
    * Toggle viewing window visibility with select.

    Excellent! This is one of the best homebrew games for the DS.

    Yes! I love this game!

    I was thinking of saving/loading the last time I played it... Now it's here [​IMG]

    Also the Pin replacing was a thing I was looking forward to.

    Downloading it now.

    Is there an ability of making/saving levels so that you can exchange them with other people? If so, that is just made of win.

    The .pp file can be played back on anyone else's Pocket Physics, so yes.

    Is this release somewhat more stable than the prior release?

    While that is nice, I've decided not to use this program. Kept "freezing" on me while working on the level. Weird how everything just stops responding, but you can still scroll the level. Has this been an ongoing issue?

    I'm getting this quite often.

    Had to restart DS 3 times in last 5 minutes because of this.

    But, I love this game xD

    If people who have bugs/freezing problem would post what cart they use, that may help the developer.
