Everything REXPaint / Re: ans export not working?
« on: November 05, 2021, 07:47:02 AM »
tried now to open from wine from terminal - no error messages appeared and now it got exported to .ans format at ./images - i wonder why it only exports when wine is being run from terminal, or why it sometimes work and sometimes doesn't - weird...

so let's see:
1- downloaded from https://www.gridsagegames.com/rexpaint/downloads.html - https://www.gridsagegames.com/blogs/fileDownload.php?fileName=REXPaint-v1.60-ANSI.zip
2- extracted the downloaded file
3- opened REXPaint.exe on wine (right click, from context menu)
4- REXPaint opened fine
5- drawin some stuff
6- pressed ctrl-a - and no message like "Exported images/unnamed.ans," appeared anywhere, not on the middle, neither on top or bottom
7- clicked on the "Export" "button" (left side of the toolbox) - nothing happened again
8- checking ./images directory (that subdirectory where REXPaint.exe is) - empty...
9- tried to save by pressing ctrl+s - a save message appeared in the middle asking for a file name, but nothing got saved at ./images directory and nowhere else (supposedly)

so i guess it might be something related to wine somehow?
perhaps i needed to open REXPaint.exe from wine from a terminal command line instead, and some error messages might appear from there?

hi Kyzrati!

yes, long time i'm not around atariage forum (and long time i'm not coding anything to colecovision as well, shame on me! :D )

about all these steps you mentioned, i did all of them (except reconfiguring normal version for .ans export) - i think i also read all the documentation - so how and where should i start troubleshooting? i also have no idea where the .ans gets saved when it works, as i found nothing after searching for all attempts everywhere...

( and talking about the .ans i submitted to battleofthebits, i made these on Moebius/PabloDraw: https://battleofthebits.org/arena/Entry/zanzare+dell%E2%80%99estate/47207/ - https://battleofthebits.org/arena/Entry/z/44627/ - so i guess you can imagine how painful and tedious was making them on these tools, and how more comfortable would be making them on RexPaint! ;)  (and imagine also how many people will love to use RexPaint on .ans submissions there! ;) )  )

thanks and cheers!

hi!
as battleofthebits has .ans format battle, and both Moebius and PabloDraw aren't that intuitive as RexPaint, i gave RexPaint-Ansi a try
the problem is that i couldn't export to .ans (or at least i have no idea to where it got exported?)
i'm using the last version 1.60 on GNU/Linux via Wine (Ubuntu 21.10, Wine 5.0.3)
thanks in advance, and cheers!
