I use a mixture of DRAW, LINE and CIRCLE for all my imagery needs. I spent yesterday afternoon, hours in fact, using DRAW to create 6 new characters. I thought I was going to go made manually retyping them in reverse for the mirrors version (L to R, E to H, and vice versa), when I realised I could copy and paste the lot into Word and do a search and replace on each letter (I'd switch L to Q, then R to L, then Q to R).
Holy smokes I'm like a kid given his dad's welding set.
The fact that DRAW leaves an imprint of itself on the screen when moved can be useful at times. I made the impression of a trampoline material stretching when moving two lines, since as they moved they didn't erase themselves and now it looks like a material bulge as someone lands on it.
Having said that, I'm getting about 50 runs of the Main Loop before going to Secondary Loop, and the speed is good at that number. But if I have to start dropping the number of Main Loop runs it'll introduce flicker (since old graphics are blacked out in the secondary loop) and things will slow, so I might have to turn to better alternatives.
Then again, I can already feel the motivation waning. I need to stick to one day projects I reckon.
