New Graphic Maker Restrictions- Lies?
« on: June 19, 2013, 12:14 pm »
       Now, we all know that there's a new graphic maker update with 60x60 graphic size and sprite-sheet templates. Now they can be used in the plat creator as well, so that's awesome.
       But what many people were hung up about is that there weren't frames on the 60x60 size. Geoff's claim is that the 60x60 bitmaps don't support graphics.
       But I was a tester for the beta graphic creator. And what I found was when you opened up a beta graphic in the old graphic maker (did this by accident), if it was 60x60, frames WERE available! They worked fine and I was surprised. Also, during the beta, if you were in the beta maker and clicked "Undo", make/duplicate buttons appeared for frames!
       So why disable frames for the 60x60? I know they're possible. I just don't get it. Why, Geoff?

Because they take up too much space.

They didn't take up too much space on my computer, and it overheats if you have any more than three tabs open at a time, and will randomly shut down at any time.
I believe he means the website, not your computer.

It's not the graphic in itself but in actual gameplay lmao. Besides I prefer this, it's a give take thing. Good quality over animation so older games don't look bad.

Again, if it takes too much room on the website, my computer would have exploded a while ago. Plus, I've already tried it out. Nothing past my usual lag. Which isn't that much for a grandpa dinosaur.

It would make games lag if used as much as a 40x40 with animation.

Please refer to my earlier post.

They make the game lag and take too much space on the website.
Simple as that.

Not on your computer, but when it's published(especially on larger projects) it'll lag a lot easier

Think of these existing on a mass scale. You're probably only thinking of what they already did with the small amount that there were.

Stop talking to me like I'm some baby coming into the world. OF COURSE I've thought about those. If the graphicsreally didthenmy computer would freeze. It hasn't yet. And I've privately made, published, and deleted some frame 60x60 graphics and games using them. Nothing happened.
OK HOW ABOUT THIS, I MADE A GAME ONLY USING THE GRAPHICS WE HAVE NOW AND IT SOMETIMES CRASHES MY CPU IF I HAVE ANYTHING ELSE UP. IT LAGS WITH THE LOW QUALITY GRAPHICS WE HAD BEFORE THE UPDATE, IS THAT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU?

It's not if your computer can handle it, it's if the website can handle it.

Not just existing on a mass scale in the game, but also in the website's server(s), which they do not whatsoever.

If it takes up too much space on the website, my computer will crash. It always finds excuses to shut down.
No it wouldn't e.e The website's bandwith has noting to do with your computer's.

It always finds excuses, however impossible, to decide to shut down.
Now you're just using your computer as an excuse e.e

WHAT? Elroy, you think I'm a troll? I'm not! I don't get it!
It's just because, even though we keep telling you that the website's bandwith and your computer are NOT RELATED AT ALL, you keep using your computer as an excuse for you to be able to abuse this glitch xD
