Problems with background editor

For some reason when I draw something on the background and click the button to move the screen everything I draw vanishes, why does this happen??

I got another problem report, maybe I broke something in the last update :/
I will check it.
Were you editing an existing BG or creating a new one? Could you attach your current file?

Try placing something at the top.... when u come back to it you’ll see it copies it all the way down...

Your stuff gets erased as it copies the top portions (which most are blanks) all the way down, so blanks get copied over anything you try to add ....

@TIMO, feels like the Y index isn’t getting incremented as it loads the backgound tiles... I took a peek at the code but your code is rather advanced ...

I’m experiencing this issue as well please fix

You should have a copy of the last background editor.. for the IOS devices go to that older copy, open up the code for it... select the TOOL option, the select the MORE at the bottom of the list... then select ADD... this will add the older copy to your tool list...

Then when you want to edit a background, choose the older copy rather than the newer copy... this will be a good work around for now :)

If you don’t have an older copy, this one should work..

Changing the size seemed to solve problem

Oooo neato...... so.... I did some more tests....

1) I started a new program, made a character, placed it once at the top, and another one elsewere below.... RESULT: as I hit the bottom tabs and back to the background, the top one was copied down to the bottom and the other one disappeared...

2) i changed size, and even changed back to the original size, and my original placement return, no funny stuff!!

Soo.. more tests...

1) I SAVED the background, exited the editor, opened the editor again, and the screen appeared completely blank, even though previously it showed fine and the data shows characters saved to the background data...

I then tried reloading the background from the background file and an error popped up saying “INVALID FORMAT”...

Something isn’t right ....

I think I fixed it, please try. The BG size was not initialized correctly.

I repeated all of my above tests, and this version passes perfectly!! :)

All versions of LowRes NX are now updated and include the fixed BG Designer.
