Problems with Atari VCS Graphics Editor...
« on: December 08, 2018, 07:41:25 pm »
 When I try to run the .jar and error appear: "Error: A JNI error has occured, please check your installation and try again"
 Any help?

The first obvious question: is Java installed?

Can you give a link to the specific graphics editor you are referring to?

I found this one, but it's listed as "pre-alpha" and "never fully realized".
https://sourceforge.net/projects/vcs-graphics/
This signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by Satan. Go ahead dauntlessly! Make rapid progres!

Then it's pretty clear that trying to get it to run will be a waste of time.  Have you seen anything to suggest that it should be of any practical use?

I have to state the obvious here: do Atari 2600 games really need a graphic editor? The games are so tiny and the graphics so simple that you could probably use a hex editor to do it. :D

Yes, I agree, but sometimes looks cool use some software with a intuitive interface, but I think too that when something(like a intuitive software) take the heavy work for you, he will tax you with a barrier(in the case a limit to you that only with the coding knowledge you can face).

That may be, but that is an entirely separate project from the one at https://sourceforge.net/projects/vcs-graphics/ , is it not?
Yeah
