I was always rather fond of ColorIt (3.x). I'm trying to remember why... I think it just retained most of the fun and ease of use that MacPaint had, while having more advanced features.

But the features weren't that advanced, I haven't touched it in years. It'll be interesting to see what it's got in this incarnation.

Measure twice, cut once, curse three or four times.

I think I have my old ColorIt 3.x disks somewhere... maybe... They're probably with my Powerbook 520c.

This was one of the first Mac apps I purchased after getting a PowerMac 6100. In its day, it could do a great deal of things at a nice price. Now that it is on Mac OS X, I wonder if it will take them 5 years to get a Universal Binary version out?

I have a feeling the developers who's apps were really tied to CodeWarrior are having the greatest amount of problems (not just terms of porting but "learing a whole new IDE/workflow, etc)

Well, I wish them luck. I wonder if they still have my serial number on hand?

I still have 4.01 installed it seems. I'll upgrade when its possible to do it online as a download.

I'm trying to find out if 4.5 has any new features other than running on OS X.

I wonder if these poor bastards used a lot of PPC assembly in the new version.

You are quite right. I never understood how anyone could get any work done in Xcode, since it always locks up on me. However, CodeWarrior, too, compiles awfully slow under OSX, but it doesn't lock up completely the way Xcode does. But it seems this is something that doesn't happen to the newcomers. Blink

But porting from OS9 to OSX using CodeWarrior was not a very painful process. It is the step to Xcode that takes lots of work. Considering that, the step to Intel could take much time for ex-MicroFrontier.

They just posted 4.5 to versiontracker. Their we b site *still* doesn't take online orders. No downloadable demo.

At $60, its not very attractive since you can get Gimp for free or PS Elements for around that price---with layers.

So sad. I used to love this app to death.

First SuperPaint, then Color It! 2.5... the dawn of my pixel art "skills"... alas, while PhotoShop is superior in every respect, I still miss the "good old days"... How I drooled at the skill of the greyscale "airbrush" paintings of superpaint (http://homepage.psy.utexas.edu/homepage/...equeen.jpg)
