Sounds cool kv83, talk about overhauling the communities dev tools! :).

4-bit graphics? Nice!

Have you started yet or is it just in planning stage?

Nope. I already started it :)

The 4bit graphics are for the Sega z80 systems. Ben asked me to support those aswell.

When you say variable size sprites, can you do this:
Code:
A 4x4 sprite
0123
4567
89AB
CDEF

would look like this
.db 01234567,89ABCDEF

no. the sprite will still be 8byte based. (I assume that's your question) So a 6x6 sprite would look like this:

.db 11111100
.db 11111100
.db 11111100
.db 11111100
.db 11111100
.db 11111100

I added a screenshot in the first post as you can see... :)

Note that this is one of the first builds, and it doesn't do anything atm. You just can edit maps and stuff... but no save function yet. The load function works though :)

It should be suite if you're talking about a collection of related programs. btw gansta, I like the new avatar. Is it Trowa Barton, or am I totally wrong?

Wow, that's one cool avatar :)

And good to see so much activity on the developer side! I really think this could be the coming of age of z80 development for calculators. At last we'll have a serious set of tools to develop software with on a higher level than we could reach with bloody Notepad and Paint :P

And I agree with Necro that the API fits in the package. Not that the three (counting Brass with Latenite) should be distributed together, but that's what I'd want to have on my PC for software development; Latenite (syntax highlighted code, Code'n'Compile, good includes), EarlyMorning (if I'd want to make something graphics intensive) and the API (mostly for easy debugging, testing and data manipulation).

Only one very neccessary thing missing in the mix then: PindurTI ;)
