Thread: Adding custom puzzles to picross app

    Default Adding custom puzzles to picross app
    I recently downloaded the Picross application by warner bros and had a look inside. The software uses downloadable .pxml files that you can open in notepad like so:


    After lookind at these files I realised they could be edited easily.

    0 represents a blank square while 1,2,3,4,5 and so on represent colours.

    I tested my theory out by editing the neighbourhood pack (I have not yet managed to create a new pack)

    As long as the .pxml file has the same name you may change the name of the pack.

    Neighbourhood to "peter's custom pack" as seen here:


    Success. When loaded into the App via diskaid the name changes!

    Peters custom pack appears.

    I took it to the next step by replacing the first puzzle "Dog" to "smile"


    I edit the image using these numbers.

    This represents the first row and its 5 squares:

    <row>0, 4, 0, 4, 0</row>
    0=none
    4=red

    This gives us two red dots.

    Next row the same thing

    <row>0, 4, 0, 4, 0</row>

    Until we plan out the whole picture

    <row>0, 4, 0, 4, 0</row>
    <row>0, 4, 0, 4, 0</row>
    <row>0, 0, 0, 0, 0</row>
    <row>4, 0, 0, 0, 4</row>
    <row>0, 4, 4, 4, 0</row>

    The 4's represent the filled in squares making a smile. I uploaded my edited .pxml

    Low and behold:




    A whole new Picross!
    You can even add new puzzles.

    The problem is that this process is very time consuming. My coding skills are next to nought. I do think
    that it would be possible to make a GUI program to generate <row> </row> files and to make them different colours. Maybe even inject the new picross into packs. I will need help with this. Post your thoughts or message me. Thanks

    If in wrong forum please move.
