I fixed up the blob’s grammar so now he speaks in perfect English! Not sure if i can post it without getting the topic closed
@Jovanny is it possible for me to post my contribution here without getting the topic closed?

hmm… I might make a github page for Pixel Lide where people can access all files and make changes (just to keep things organized). I’ll let you guys know once I’m done

I only close topics when people start posting things unrelated to wick. In your case, sevonix server stuff, other places member list / accounts outside here with members that you took from here, chats outside etc…

It is not about you, it is about content. If you post wick projects, you will be just fine. Using an external share drive/disk, or server, or services to post wick files is allowed. (google drive should be just fine, among others…)

Best luck.

So i can post my contribution, just checking one more time, cause someone’s just gonna say this is a collab not tagged right And then it gets closed.

Hi @Watrmeln
If you understand that you are not violating any of these rules, then you should be just fine.

Good point @Watrmeln@Hamzah_Al_Ani, Are you planning to make a collab out of this topic?

@Watrmeln, if is a one time thing, just do it… if your plan is to keep posting improvements etc… you should ask @Hamzah_Al_Ani first, and then if he is agree with a collab, then he should open a collab for this project.

No, this is just a one time fix for grammar and logos (not mine) @Hamzah_Al_Ani
New Pixel Animator3-31-2021_14-26-09.wick (149.6 KB) just put it here


Thank you for taking the time to make these edits (I appreciate it) but…

(also, Lide studios already has a logo)

I’ll leave this thread as it is.
Anyone can feel free to “remix” the project though
(credit will be fairly given), but it’s not an official collab.

Been 12 days, and I got a good amount of progress done.
Sorry for not making much updates (been working on other projects), but version 0.05 is finally here!

Here’s what’s new in this version:

  • 0.05 loads projects faster than 0.04 :file_folder:
  • The background color is adjustable :paintbrush:
  • Onion skinning has been added! Still needs a LOT of work though :grimacing:
  • I changed/ added some timeline options: :walking_man:
    • Default: The timeline plays normal
    • Reversed: The timeline plays forwards, then plays backwards
    • Limit: The timeline plays to a specific frame before re-playing
  • New: alert systems (credit to Revon & his tutorial) :left_speech_bubble:
    (Uses sweetalert.js)
  • New: Bug Reporting code :bug:
    If you don’t know how you got a bug, and wanna report it, the “Bug Reporting code” will help me track down what you did to get that bug to happen (ex: enabled onion skinning, opened file, restarted project, that’s the type of info this code has - and it’s not that long!)
  • Share links FINALLY work! :link:
    (Now there’s a “copy” button to copy the whole link, and an “open” button to open the link in a new tab)
  • New “cursor style” :computer_mouse:
  • etc.

Next thing on my todo list is:

  • finishing up tutorials and adding more in
  • Adding a more recognizable method for changing bg color
  • Onion skinning forward, past, and present option
  • Find a method to make url shorter

Feel free to make any other suggestions

Also, since share links are a bit… “too long” … you can always download a blob file, change it’s file format to html, and share it here instead (Pixel Lide can run any text related format that has a project code, so you won’t have to change the file back to “blob”)

Here’s a quick project of the sun wearing sunglasses Pixel_Lide_.html (58.1 KB)

Thanks that is Verry Nice :slight_smile:

i tried searching it up and i couldn’t find it. maybe you could find it only because you made it yourself and you visited that site many times or something like that.


i see it though, when i search it up. are you sure you clicked “Search instead for pixel lide”?


ok, now i see some forum posts and the mozilla site. don’t see the repl though.

Hi, i have a qustion how to erase Pixels?

At the moment, the eraser tool is still being developed

The shortcut for erasing was meant to be holding “e” or “backspace,” then clicking the pixels, but I removed this shortcut several updates ago since it caused autosave and file code bugs

I will try to re-add this tool in the next update, I added it to my to-do list (note: I’m planning on changing the whole UI design too since I’m running outta room for new features…).

In the meantime, you can use “ctrl” + “z” to erase pixels, or draw new pixels on top to hide them
(there’s also an undo button - image - but no redo button)

ah ok Thanks for this reply. but i have one more Question for today. are you planing to upload this Project in Higher framerate? or is a Higher Framerate making Problems?

I’m planning on improving the project frame rate by compressing the file as much as possible. The project is currently under a good size, so I might make a new version of Pixel Lide for bigger projects (it’s more likely to have less features, but should be capable of running bigger projects).

As for viewing bigger/ longer animations and stuff, I’m currently “raw coding” a separate project that should be able to run long animations at a faster fps using a “blob file.” The progress on that is pretty good, and you’ll be able to download image files too once that is out
