ok guys, more input required! I have bumped this thread as my questions are related to THP2.
I am currently planning on 3 windows:
- 3D Window
- 2D Window
The 3D window will have the preview of the head, the 2D window will show the texture and the console will allow you to change heads, it will inform you of incorrect file settings and allow you to convert between file types.
The console will be a custom console window and not a DOS-box. It should be much smaller.
Anyway, the questions: What sort of sizes do you want for the windows? What sort of maximum width do you want for the console window? Do you want the 3D window square? What size do you want the 3D window? what size do you want the 2D window?
Do you want the 2D window zoomable (likely to be limited to 2x). Also, do you want the 2D window to stretch the texture out horizontally so it looks the same as how it maps onto the head?
What sort of background colours do you want for the 3D window? What colours do you want for the console? (white text on black? yellow on black? red on black for errors? black on white?)
What file types do you want me to try to open? (currently looking at bmp and tga [+ compressed])
If you are not sure what size you want, let me know your screen resolution, I can then try to make it fit into the screen for everyone.
