pastebin get wJQ7jav0 pain
std pb wJQ7jav0 pain
std ld pain pain

Syntax:
pain <filename> [view (displays the picture and exits)] [x] [y] [frameNo]
pain [-n] --no argument will also create new image
pain -h/--help

PAIN is an advanced, yet simple-to-use paint program that can be used to make artwork in ComputerCraft better and faster than ever!
PAIN automatically converts images from NFP (used by paint), NFT (used by npaintpro), BLT (used with the BLittle API), GIF (used with real paint programs), and UCG (used by silica). You can export to these formats too!

It also supports frames, which allows you to save multiple images in the native format and BLT as one file.

I like it, it's nice to have a scrollable canvas! And with a mouse the controls would be excellent (No middleclick or RMB+scroll on my laptop), I'll have to try it out at home with a mouse.
I think the file format is nice, and saving twice reduces file size sometimes, (it saves a pixel multiple times occasionaly).

Good work! :)

Thanks! Having a scrollable canvas was one of the reasons I have a table-based saving format.

Okay, the controls ARE a bit awkward. I can quickly change it to using LSHIFT or LALT instead of rightclick. But putting down text has to be middle click. On my lapop (which runs Ubuntu), I can middleclick by pressing both laptop buttons at the same time. I guess I could have it so that it detects if you leftclick, then rightclick with leftclick still down.

Saving PAIN pictures was kind of troublesome to code. I needed to make SURE that no two (or more) pixels existed in the same X and Y space. But that's really hard, as it means whenever you save, it loops through the amount of pixels squared. I bet it wouldn't lag so much if I didn't use textutils.serialize to compare tables. I changed the way it finds redundant pixels, and now it works just dandy.

Exit is a function that makes animatronic arms shoot out of your monitor, make you toast in your DVD drive (not compatible with CD drives), and pours battery acid down your trousers while blaring a looping clip of Nicolas Cage laughing.


<ontopic>

At the time of posting, I fixed the function that deletes pixels that exist within the same X and Y, clearing space.

New update! I pretty nice one, I might add.
+Added a 'metadata' attribute to each pixel drawn. This is only useful when making a game using PAIN, which I might do.
+Added button combination to fill all blank pixels with your selected colors
+Added button to set scroll back to start (0,0)
+Added button to toggle displaying and saving in grayscale. Note this does not mean PAIN is for normal computers.
*Fixed flickering whenever you press any key or scroll the mouse.
*Spit on it to make it shine

* = fix, + = addition

yaya more update

Scrolling is now faster and smoother using a parallel.waitForAny and a table with all the pressed keys.
Also, I changed the background of 'o's to an actual grid! The whole grid is rendered in one long, convoluted line.

Mac OS X has no middle click gesture, and you can't scroll while clicking

Just to clear things up, that was on my school computer, a windows machine. I'd prefer to have a mac at school too, but they give them to us for free.
I personally think Mac OS is better, but I think it depends on what you start with. Always had Mac OS (since Classic) and I still like it.
Ontopic, this is a better editor than the default one! The file format allows for some pretty cool stuff!

Had windows all my life past the release of Windows 10. Got an 8-year-old MacBook (that's now BROKEN, thanks cousin) and on Feb 21, 2016 got a MacBook Pro. Completely ditched my Windows machine for this thing. Awesome. It can run everything but MC shaders with over 60 FPS (CURSE YOU INEFFICIENT RESOURCE-HOGGING OVERDONE SHADERS)

Is it just me or has MC gotten less resource efficient over the years? iMac from 2011 =P ( occasionally Powerbook G4 from 2004 <--- 2fps xD)

Semi-good?

WHAT ARE YOU EVEN DOING HERE I THOUGH WE WERE TALKING ABOUT BAD FPS xD

(though seriously, how'd you get it that high? any certain graphics card?)

ontopic (lol):

Thanks heaps for making this program, it can be so useful :D I was thinking of using it with blittle since with the normal paint you can't get as big of pictures.

Easier said than done; how will you target which "pixels" you want to draw to? ;)

Sure, you could use BLittle to draw a "preview" next to your main drawing area, but then you've got even less screen space to actually work in...

what do you mean by that?

and as for the pixel targeting, i mean paint something normal size, then scale it down in a different program:

First of all, we weren't abusing it.
Second of all, it wasn't causing any trouble.
Third of all, you don't need to "C-C-C-Combo Edit!" it.

Having to scroll through the same text repeated half a dozen times is annoying.

Netiquette! :P
