I'm back to report just like I said I would be!
So I tested out Wick Editor and I gotta say... I'm very impressed and really excited about this thing! I spent a few hours making this little game. I found it pretty intuitive; it didn't take me too long to figure out how to use it even with no prior knowledge of the software or even the dang coding language it uses! I'll share the game I made below if anyone wants to check it out, but first I'd like to share all the thoughts I wrote down as I was making this. I should mention that I was using v 0.15.2, haven't tried out v 1.0.5a yet.
-No button for "draw inside" etc on brush tool?
-Bit of a long response time on my laptop (but I was running a bunch of high-intensity programs at the same time), fine on my desktop
-New layers should be added above the currently selected layer, not at the very bottom
-I like that layers don't necessitate blank frames before where you want a layer to start like Flash does.
-Any way to integrate the NG API? I'd love to be able to add medals!
-No way to lock/hide all layers at once? (Or solo a layer)
-Onion skin doesn't always seem to work
-After about an hour of work it started really acting up in ways that I don't even know how to describe. Saving and reloading fixed the issues.
-Flipping buttons horizontally makes them unclickable
-Copying a frame when you have an object also in your clipboard will paste both. Kind of annoying. (wasn't able to replicate this later, might have just been acting up again)
-I don't understand why duplicating something in the main scene puts it down and to the right (like Flash, though a bit further), but duplicating something inside a group puts it WAY up and to the left
aaaaaand that's all I wrote! Even the issues I ended up having with it throughout the day were fairly minimal, nothing I couldn't manage to pull through, which is really promising!
I wrote a whole bunch more over in the Author Comments section in the project which I believe I set to be viewable by anyone (I don't actually know though, never done that before...)
So here's the link:
I did mention at the bottom of the author comments that if some people are wanting some help with getting started using Wick, I'd be happy to help (maybe make a little tutorial or something), that way we can have as many great submissions to the upcoming jam as possible! Just let me know. :)
Once again, thanks for sharing this @TomFulp
