- Panel display bug when choosing different languages, workaround is to resize the window - Handling of Unicode paths on Windows still isn't perfect - will be fixed in next version
Completely new save format with much better forward-compatability. This will make it a lot easier to add new features.
Bigger UI icons for a more attractive interfaceWhat's coming in the next version:
Max OSX distribution with native App and distribution
MSI installer for Windows
And lots more!NotesPlease see here for TileCutter documentation
All the paths in the main window are relative to the project save location path. This is intended to allow you to put all your work files in one directory, and then to be able to move or zip that directory and send it to someone else while preserving all the links to the images. Also note that the images are not saved with the project file, only links to them are (this may change at some point).
It's also worth pointing out that in order for the one click exporting to work (e.g. makeobj integration) you need to have filled out the correct details in the dat editing window. The image array information is automatically generated and appended to whatever you type into this box.Download
