ok, i extracted all the winzip files for the gish editor into my gish folder, but whn i click on it, it says (and i quote) "This application has failed to start because SDL.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem"

do i have to re-download yhe editor?  how come it did this in the first place?  i do NOT want to read 100 something text files, espeically tga (I have photoshop ><).

Don't try this at home!

- Add an anchor
- Add a 1x1 block 4 tiles below the anchor
- Connect a push piston from the anchor to the top left anchor of the block
- Connect a pull piston from the anchor to the top right anchor of the block
- Set the mass of the block to 10
- Add an area switch 4 left and 3 down from the block
- Link it from the anchor
- Set the anchor RGB to 1,100,2
- Make the anchor a flickering omni light (because of "NOTE: Anchors with pistons shouldnt be used as lights." in gisheditor.txt)

I can't get this to work.

yeah, the gished is right under the Gish file, yeah, the actual file...i kinda realized the tgas were textures a bit after i posted.  but hte gish demo (which i kept after i installed Gish for some reason) had SDL.dll and when it ried copying and pasting it into the gish folder, it opened but didnt really do anthing.  the gish folder doesnt have that dll!  WHAT DO I DO!!?!?! AAAAH!  yoink.

Gished.app/Contents/MacOS/Gish isn't executable by default. Maybe you should package it in a dmg?

If you can't get it to work:
- Open the Terminal
- Type chmod +x and a space (no enter yet)
- Drag&drop Gished.app on the window
- Complete the path: Gished.app/Contents/MacOS/Gish
- Enter
- Enjoy!

- When you click exit in e.g. the tile editor you also 'click' on the tile you are then on with the cursor. Workaround: esc
- Every two times I reload (F9-F7) the level some tile textures (including the alpha channel) are garbage. Am I the only one having this problem?
- ROFL! (tried negative mass)
- Did you know you can zoom in/out with -/+? (CL: can't scrolling speed be proportional to that? And how about several zoom levels, ranging from the whole level to a few tiles?)
- Maybe some gisheditor.txt-like text (only the relevant part) could be shown if you hold down H?
- Q:How do you get the slowest level in the world? A:Add 20 circles and connect them to each other.
- If you want to go to the start quickly, go to sim (F1), press F5, and immediately go to the editor again (F1).
- Crashes at 5.0 drag...
- Those pistons are strangely fun!
- Try asynchronous pistons!
- Annoying: you can click on (not through) a 0% opaque part of the 'palette'.
- Why are there three textures for bars/pistons which all look the same?
- Fast scroll would be handy.
- ... and a "center on this tile" key.
- Is it just me or did extra lives become tiles with a border?
- Depending on their mass objects are underwater or not, but there's nothing in between!

I like that editor...

P.S. This is the zillionth edit.

gisheditor.txt has the majority (If not all) of the info on gish editing you'll ever need.

Hint: Third line :P
