Altering BlitzMax NG IDE
« on: July 12, 2021, 08:02:17 »
Altering NG IDE

Is there away of altering the Menu IDE .Icons and Adding Different Fonts. I know there is the "File, Ide options" But this dosent go far enough.

Right Clicking the BlitzMax Icon on the Desktop. We can change the .ExE icon to look like BlitzMax Icon. Or change it to Something else.

1, How can we alter the icon's for Load, Save, Build, Run etc?

2, How can we alter the text in the Editor Window. I find BlitzMax NG to straight and clinical! Where as BlitzMax text feels chunky! Retro! Which i like  :D

3, Could BlitzMax Ide be used to Run BlitzMax NG. Probably not as NG is x64 and BlitzMax is x32.

Just Reluctant to move accross as i think BlitzMax Feels better than BlitzMax NG to use and Read.  :-X

Hi,

you should be able to use the old MaxIDE to create 32bit builds if you really desire, altough you can alter editor font and navbar font from File / IDE options.

Yes of course it's a serious Question.

I Thought that Some other Process is needed to Build, Make and Compile the BlitzMax NG IDE.

Ive downloaded, Now opened the Maxide.bmx file in BlitzMaxNG IDE and hit the Compile.

It Now opens It's self ready for Programming as normal.  :D

I Would love to try this over BlitzMax 1.5 But i get too many Errors and when i do get it running it dosent run my current project which dosen't allow easy migration!

I certainly don't want to do a massive re-write at this stage just to use it. :o

Oh Well  :-\
