Phidias – Replacement for Draw?

Someone has finally made a drawing app which can compete with mine!

* DLDI
* Saving & Loading to BMP
* Pencil and Brush tools
* Paint Bucket
* Blur tool
* Zooming — allows to draw an image 2x the size of the screen
* Undo/Redo
* Nice GUI

Things that it’s still missing which I had:
* Save & Load to PNG
* Save & Load to SRAM (for flashcart users, and slot-2 devices which have no DLDI)
* Slow paint fill — his just fills everything
* Nicer color picker — his makes you twiddle with R,G,B sliders

Give it a try!
Phidias

  1. Awesome. I dug the app from the first release, but saving was broken for me. Now it works great. That’s a good break-down of features.. there are improvements over draw but I do definitely miss .png saving/loading, as well as the color picker (adjusting RGB values gets old if you just want to ‘eyeball’ a shade.

    This is the kind of thing that makes me wish more devs collaborated.

  2. I have to say, as a long-time Draw fan, I was skeptical of Phidias. After trying it though, it seems pretty nice. The main advantage over Draw I’d say is no jumping lines. If the GUI version of Draw actually worked for me though, it would be hard to choose between which app is better. Both have unique advantages, but I would choose Draw’s interface over Phidias’. Davr, did you ever make a DLDI version of Draw? That would seriously rock.

    Thanks for your awesome program Davr!!

  3. I know this is about draw, but has anyone got the Mandelbrot Generator to save images to a Supercard Lite? Thanks in advance!

  4. wtf. Phidias is a excelent app, without the damm jumping lines, allows more circular movements, and a nice design. The awesome is the build speed, he just come from nothing with a complete application, from programming to a good design.

  5. I still like the way the Draw app….well….draws…

    The lines are smoother and I like the fact that I don’t have to retrace my lines to get a solid thick black line (like I do in Phidias, plus..NO ERASER IN PHIDIAS??? COMMON!!!)

    The only reason I’m using Phidias is that it offers the exporting of my images to a .bmp format which is very cool.

    I have an EZ Flash IV, and I’ve tried for the life of me to get the “.sav change to .png” method of saving pictures to work..but alas..no luck.

    I really hope you make that DLDI version of Draw Davr, it is truly a solid program!
