Thought some here might find this interesting.:)

No, apparently not.

Can you elaborate on that?

It is interesting, Olsen made some nice comments about it on amiga.org.

Predseda 24 July 2015 09:32

Nice. But what is it good for?

Dunny 24 July 2015 10:02

It can be added to the Open Source thread as an example of a program that would have been completely lost and suffered from a lack of updates if it had remained closed?

Except you're not allowed to modify or distribute derivative works according to the licence, so I'm not sure how that helps except from a preservation/nostalgic interest point of view :P

My interest was purely curiosity / nostalgia driven.

Don't want to see it? Don't download it. :-)

So there you go - now someone can compile it for OS4 PPC and OS4 PPC will have DPaint 1.0 :)

Same here, so much appreciated :)

Quite interesting to see a full commercial Amiga program done entirely in C. Disregarding all the utility code that's added to it, the main application code is surprisingly compact.

Well, 10 (11) since yesterday. Not much of an interest, is it? Nobody's elaborating about src quality, compiler settings, structure of program, bugs, nostalgia, early memories......

Anybody recompiled the src yet? :rolleyes
e.g.
U.S.A. forum
German forum

Can you post links, these screenshots aren't really helping anyone work out anything.

How's your analysis of the source code going? Recompiled it yet?

Links? Just visit the usual ones. There are not much left (Hint: try amiga.org and a1k.org). I did not compiled it yet because of (failed to config c-compiler) kind of errors. I'm a BlitzBasic guy, so i can read and understand the provided src because it is well written and therefore in some way similar to BB2 but i don't know how to setup a C-compiler to simply create an executable out of it. It is just crazy.

Just saw the video. This Dan Silva could have smiled a little lol. I've always been in awe of the guys talent ever since receiving my copy of Deluxe Paint with my A600 HD!

modrobert 26 July 2015 19:49

...and it didn't end with Deluxe Paint.

Frank Wille compiled a working version. Details are on the A1k forum.

Btw, he is an active user over here too.

Pyromania 27 July 2015 03:37

Cool, it's nice this was made available. What about the sources to Deluxe Paint V?
