Sprite/Icon/Map editor: Raster Master V1.7 R84 for Windows 10/11 (update)
Raster Master ( reported) is a sprite/icon/map editor for Windows 10/11 which generates RayLib-, PutImagedata and Map code for gcc, AmigaBASIC, Amiga C, Amiga Pascal, QuickBasic, QB64, Quick C, Turbo Pascal, freepascal, Turbo C, Turbo Basic, Power Basic, FreeBASIC, GWBASIC, BASICA, and PC-BASIC (YouTube video).

About the now released version 1.6 R83 the developer wrote: "This is a big one! Refactored so much code and deleted even more! But the most exciting aspect is that we are back to support 32 bit systems. The previous method used for rendering was terrible in terms of memory. Now way less memory used.

Rendering and scrolling is much faster now! Everything in the main editor has been simplified. All shapes now are rendered in their correct color when drawing/adjusting size. Previously during draw/size shape was using xor to erase previous shape.

Grid and Clip Select outline are rendered over the zoomed image. Everything is fast now that you can't notice this.

The tools menu now includes the hidden tools that were available only when selecting a clip area. These tools can be used now when the image is not selected. The action will be performed on the entire image.

There maybe some things I missed, but overall I think you will notice the improvements!"

Update: (01.06.2023, 05:12, dr)

In the meantime, version 1.7 R84 has been released: the sprite importer now also has the options "Grid" and "Snap to grid", the map editor has a grid in the background that can be switched off if required. Also, a crosshair pointer has been introduced in the edit windows. (dr)

Video: Experiments with the AMOS Layers System (ALS)
Simone Bevilacqua's AMOS Layers System (ALS) "turns the screens of AMOS Professional into layers that can be laid over one another, with complete control of order, colors and opaqueness, while keeping them renderable as usual" ( reported). During a brainstorming for a new game with ALS he did some experiments which he recorded in two videos (1, 2). The basic idea here is that there are two parallel worlds in the game: a real one (dangerous/dark) and an illusory one (pleasant/nice), each of which becomes visible to the player on different occasions.
