The original Flex was a web app, which gave it several limitations. A full rewrite for desktop opens up the ability to use real project files, as well as various other improvements.

Key improvements;

  • project files
  • sexy flexible UI layout
  • custom mapping formats
  • undo / redo
  • ability to draw directly on sprites
  • multiple heuristics for spritesheet importing
  • full access to dplc/mapping data
