That wasn’t a joke.
I’ve hacked/disassembled/poked at Metroid 2 intermittently over the past couple of years, but it wasn’t until literally last week that I got around to coding anything that could edit it. A while back some of us at metroidconstruction tried getting together to make an editor, but, um, nothing really came of it.
I wrote some stuff in Python to read the various kinds of level data, then I tried displaying it.
Here’s where I’m at so far: https://imgur.com/a/gmpQ5
My code takes around ~15 seconds to render a full map. I know I’m using an interpreted language, but I suspect something is a tad unoptimized (probably either file-io related or the fact that I literally have functions returning bitmaps).
Q: What’s a good GUI library for Python?
