Simple, but fun. It could benefit from background music, and maybe a flood fill tool, and Undo function. --Mr. Reaper 06:09, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

I agree, I like having "kid" apps on my wii, my daughter is only clocking on 1 year old, but it's good learning young :) tbh, she eats the remote and rather watch In The Night Garden, but it's great just holding her hand and drawing :) I'm hoping for the release of some guys app named *storii* —Preceding unsigned comment added by Djdynamite123 (talkcontribs) 17:00, 19 April 2009 (UTC) anyway yeah I agree with Reaper, BGM would be soothing, maybe a boot.mp3 or something on SD in the apps folder? and a few more tools added. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Djdynamite123 (talkcontribs) 17:22, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Heyyyy, that's a good idea.... How about an MP3 player that will randomly play mp3 files that are located in a certain folder? That might a lot of programming to add in... but maybe you could borrow code from MiniMP3 Player. --Mr. Reaper 17:54, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Cool idea. If I had kids I'd let them play around with this, it sounds fun. .Hyper//Hacker 23:34, 20 April 2009 (UTC)

Just an idea for you to think about, you have an option to save your file, but their is no way to load it, that may be something to think about when making another release.--MGordonH 14:19, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Next feature request: a flood-fill tool. I'd suggest maybe making the A button cycle through different tools, and the B button will be for drawing. Like press the thumb button repeatedly to cycle through: Brush -> Bucket -> Spray -> Line -> Oval -> Rectangle -> Brush -> Bucket ... etc. --Mr. Reaper 02:26, 29 April 2009 (UTC)


I like the new features, though I keep wanting to use the B button to draw..... Flood Fill and Airbrush are great. The square isn't as useful.... I think a tool to draw a straight line from one point to another (as you hold down the button) would be more useful. Though, when I did use the square, I wanted to be able to rotate it by twisting the wiimote (like those hands on the wii menu screen).

Even though I'd prefer to draw with B, I think it could be put to better use as a SHIFT key. Like have it so that you hold down the B button and press Left or Right to cycle forward or backward through the tools. Just pressing Left or Right without holding B will do the usual color changing. This leaves the option open to have B shift the (+) and (-) buttons to do something different... like, uhhhh...... ahhh! Change the shape of the brush!

Yeah, then you don't need a Square tool. Just have it so the default brush shape is a circle, and B with (+) or (-) can cycle through shapes like, Solid Circle -> Hollow Circle -> Solid Square -> Hollow Square -> [triangle, oval, octagon, or whatever shapes wouldn't be too difficult to add]. And add in the functionality where you can rotate all the brushes by twisting the wiimote, if that's not too difficult. Don't forget all these shapes can apply to the Airbrush too.

Ok... I think if you did that, the Tool Selection buttons should actually be (+) and (-). B with (+) and (-) should be Undo and Redo, and B with Left and Right should be Brush Shape.

To tell the difference between a Hollow Circle brush and the Airbrush tool, maybe the Airbrush tool could be made from a dotted line or something....

And in modes other than the basic modes, you could probably just have the Home button bring up a menu that asks if you want to exit or clear, rather than using the "hold button down" thing.

I'm just throwing out ideas.... Thanks for the work you've done on this. --Mr. Reaper 04:49, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Maximum brush size should be much larger -- almost the full height of the screen. Sometimes I just wanna draw a big circle or square. Left slash, right slash, horizontal and vertical lines would also be some additional brush shapes to add in. Though I don't know how useful those brushes would really be.... --Mr. Reaper 22:45, 5 June 2009 (UTC)
