Drag'n'Drop 12i3 edition reviewed

Posted by Mark Stephens on 05:42, 23/5/2023 |
the Spring edition of Drag'n'Drop magazine was released to coincide with the Wakefield Show (sadly the Editor was unable to attend). It's another 32 edition of news, reviews, tools and lots of coding!

The news section has lots of useful links. Given one of the 'items', I suspect the original target publication date was the start of April.
In this edition, there is an in-depth review of 3D Turbo Boost from AmCog games. The reviewer clearly had a great time testing the game, especially being able to drive in an indestructible car. A second article goes behind the scenes and explains the ideas behind the game and how it works.
There is a graphics article explaining what Einstein tiles are (and the Maths behind them).
Each edition usually has a selection of programs. This time there is a useful little utility called 'Draw to Jpegs' which converts a directory of Draw files into JPEG images. We also have a BBC Basic game called 'Leaky Roof' and a Tesellation editor for 8 bit machines. As usual the code is featured and explained. You can also buy the programs already typed in.
The series on the Icon Bar (which I now know from the article is a Window with no furniture) now shows us how to create our own funky custom Icon Bar at the bottom.
Finally, our Oz columnist has been playing with GPIO pins from BBC Basic.
The next edition is due out at the start of August. I can't wait!

I have a utility that will convert a directory of Impression files (or Draw files) into a directory of PDFs. It was written up in Impression Newsletter No. 2 at http://www.svrsig.org/News2.pdf
