Java AGI Interpreter by Dr Zoltan

Does anyone happen to know who Dr Zoltan (the author of the following AGI Interpreter) was?

https://sourceforge.net/projects/agi/

It looks like Dr Zoltan did a lot of work on this project back in 2001 and I'd like to get in contact with him if I can.

Overall responsiveness and speed. I know java applications and games can be somewhat unresponsive. But when I added all the possible stuff in to the picture, background image, dual mode, priority bands and ego, ego's speed got slow, with multiple pictures simultaneously, and addiotional stuff turne...

Unfortunately it would appear that I have broken the Step line tool in the Milestone 6 release. It isn't that surprising since I completely refactored how it stores the picture data. I had very nearly released Milestone 6 a couple of times early last week before discovering various bugs at the last ...

Yes, hopefully a new batch of modern tools can rekindle the interest in AGI that there was about 10 years ago. I'm guessing that a lot of those people (those of us that grew up with AGI games) are more busy these days with work and family. At some point I'll stop working on this tool and actually us...

PICEDIT 1.3 Milestone 6 released

Today I have built and released the sixth milestone of PICEDIT 1.3. http://picedit.googlecode.com/files/picedit-1.3M6.jar This release includes a couple of big features that took a considerable amount of time, but I think the effort was well worth it. The new features include: * Multi picture suppor...

You may have noticed that the color chooser and brush chooser pop ups are modal. They stay on top and won't go away until something is selected. It is possible to exit out of them by pressing ESC or right clicking. Another thing that stays on top is the floating toolbar, but that should only stay on...

Thanks for the feedback. Neither of those observations were intentional. You are correct, the mouse wheel button shouldn't deselect the tool. I'll fix that for the next milestone. Regarding the "always on top", are you referring to the whole application? Does it stay on top of other applications? I'...

After playing around with the new tool bar a bit, and thinking ahead to multiple picture editing, I think that the tool bar itself has to be outside the internal frame. It will be floatable and dockable. It will initially be docked and then can be floated if required. When it is floating it can then...

Yeah, maybe dockable is the way to go. Actually I was playing around with something last night where the toolbar in Java can be set as floatable. What that means is that it is initially "docked" I guess you'd call it but can be dragged out to become floating if required. Maybe that is the best way t...

Pallet cycling by mouse wheel would be counter intuitive to anyone used to image editors. What might make more sense would be to handle it with a right click, not the wheel. It is hard to know which way to go. Right clicking is a good idea. Maybe right clicking could bring up the whole tool bar, no...

Good point about the zooming. It has also occurred to me that I need to make the window expand when it zooms in. I've got that on my list of things to do. And I meant to implement mouse wheel zooming in and out but it slipped my mind before releasing 1.3M4. Both features should be in the next releas...

Today I built and released the third milestone release of PICEDIT 1.3. This gives people a chance to see yet more of the new features I've been working on for 1.3. Note that this is just a milestone release and I plan to release more milestone releases before the final 1.3 release. http://picedit.go...

For those who are interested, the code I referred to has been found. It has been up on Wikipedia for the past 3 years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk%3ASierra%27s_Creative_Interpreter#Examples It is also here: http://web.archive.org/web/20050205191150/http://www.classicgaming.com/agisci/swatcode....
