@kindermoumoute: Wait, did it really go faster when you had the bitmap option selected? Also, as for actual bitmaps, yes I plan to add support for that. I don't think it would be 4-level grayscale, though. I would have a function to determine if a color was light or dark. If it was light that pixel would be white, and dark would be black. Would that work for what you wanted? (I'd imagine it's for that pixel-mapping program you're working on with Hayleia?) EDIT: Yeah, the problem with opening that you're having is what I noticed too. It works if you have it open already, though.
@Hayleia: I have a lot
of school work I have to do tonight, probably tomorrow night, and most likely over the weekend. I'll check it out because I also noticed that it sometimes doesn't work when you double-click just one file. Um... Having an error like "NAME.8xp is not a valid Win32 application" might mean that Windows did something wrong with setting some property. Try re-setting BexIDE to be the default program to open .8xp files.
EDIT: Thanks Jonius!
