Re: Dev Diary

My partner is threatening to steal my PC to run this software, I don't want to have to learn how to use her Mac :(. Please make it work on them for the masses (beg, beg, beg). :)

Wow, Fantastic, Feiss, THANK YOU!
I'll post the link into the Info thread for now.

Re: Dev Diary

done!
I don't know how can the different translations be up to date.. It's ok for now, I guess. If you see that my version is very outdated, send me a pm.

Just one idea: It would be great including in the manual, for each parameter, to have an image with a bunch of strokes, showing how different values of it affects the painting

Re: Dev Diary

Thanks, that's cool! :D
Eh, the idea is good, but I think I hold on until things evolve a bit more.

Re: Dev Diary

Idea, click on circular indicator itself for brush type, maybe hold on it and drag horizontal to change the rotational value and scale by vertical movement?

Re: Dev Diary

My original plan was to let a click on the brush indicator open a brush interface. I think I may do that eventually. There will be a new layer to the whole interface soon.

Hey Taron,

I saw in a previous post that you have a cintiq companion and that you don't like it. Verve has given me the itch to get a cintiq to replace my aging wacom. I don't want to hijack this thread but what is it you don't like about it? I'm guessing part of it is that the companion is woefully underpowered in the graphics dept. and that on it's own Verve may either not run at all or horribly slowly, am I close? What is it like connected to your PC, are there still things that annoy you about it?!

I remember trying the older 12 inch one 5 or so years ago and not liking it that much, I was bugged by the cursor offset from the pen tip and the weird inaccuracies when you got towards the edges of the screen. I also thought the screen itself was of terrible quality, dull and with muddy colours (slow response rate too it seemed). Have things improved recently? Wacom used to be my favourite tech company but it seems like ever since touchscreens came into vogue they've started slipping down the slope to oblivion. Having never used a newer cintiq (it is hard to find a demo unit to try) I can't help but imagine that all the new 'touch' features are going to feel wonky and unresponsive compared to an iPad for example. Also with all these different versions on sale it is just muddying the waters even further imho!

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

BTW, just noticed that have been 2 new versions of Verve made available for download since I downloaded it the other day! WOW, who says Christmas only comes once a year! It comes every time a new version comes along!!! Thanks so much.

Cheers
