Hey guys. This is basically a brand new topic taking over the old one. I never kept up to date, and I needed to get the word out of what's about to come.
So as of the making of this topic, ZOLE has been released as 1.23, ZOSE is out as 1.5 Beta 2 Final Release, ZOTE is 1.01, and ZOCF is 1.01. All tools are very far in development and nearly bug-free (There's some ones I know about in ZOLE that are minor and will be fixing later on). Now though, this topic is going to be a development thread for ZOLE Live.
What is ZOLE Live, you ask? Well, picture Google Docs, but with ZOLE. It's a separate program from ZOLE bug with chatting and real-time co-op editing. People can edit the same maps at once with their changes being synced and updated in real time. The server barely requires anything - During a testing session with 6 people, it was using 0% CPU, using 22MB of memory, and had no lag.
The main goal of the program is to allow people to create hacks together and improve development speed, and attract people to ZOLE. Here's a screenshot (fairly outdated), and as you can see, wasn't edited by the most responsible people. But either way, it shows its power:
Here's a recent one with a much later build:
Currently, here's the features it has as of the date of this post:
-ROM feeding, and server settings
-Users online list with what they're doing
-Interaction adding/editing/deleting with required permission
-Real-time map editing with other maps getting updated even if the user isn't in them
-Music changing that also works like the map editing
-Area ID and property editing, works in real time like everything else
Not too much, but still fairly functional and good enough to even make a hack right now. It won't be out for some time, but the rest of the things will be easy to add. I still have to add security to the server, and powers, like kicking, banning, etc...
