С небольшим опозданием, но всё же разрешите отметить юбилей самой известной игры всех времён и народов на ретро-компьютерах - Elite. Началось всё 30 лет назад в Кембридже, когда два студента David Braben и Ian Bell решили сделать масштабный проект на тему космического симулятора, с вооружёнными столкновениями, торговлей, чёрным рынком, космическими пиратами. Всё это удалось разместить в 48kb памяти. Релиз состоялся 20 сентября.

ZX-Paintbrush 2.5 Published

posted by TecSoft

1. Bugfix: The new tool clone last drawn figure had no link to the context help.

2. Here some suggestions from kgmcneil:
2.1. With a new toggle function toggle overlay display you can hide an existing overly (it's still present but it's not displayed). This toggle function can be executed by pressing the 'O' key.
2.2 Implemented another raster edit to let the user adjust the X- and Y-raster independently.
2.3 Implemented a user-defined grid that can be used in addition to the pixels- and character grid.
2.4 Implemented a way for drawing with images. To perform this, a double-click on an existing overlay now draws it on the screen.

3. Implemented a 'remove capture' icon that removes an active capture object which was not easy

4. Bugfix: The utility "convert colour overlay to pixels only overlay" changed the position of the resulting overlay to top-left corner of the screen. Now it calculates the last position without attribute sizes and stays on its position.

5. Merging a colour overlay now does it the same way: The selection rectangle is not longer expanded to the full attribute area.

6. The holding of x or y cursor position is now performed with the and key rather than and . Because the older keys interfered with the capture drag function.

7. Einar Saukas suggested another algorithm for the "import picture" tool. Now, on a 2-color attribute field (8x8 or one of the others), the darker colour becomes INK and the brighter becomes PAPER.
