No, because it would be a pointless waste of time and effort.

I agree, as this would be a step backwards.

There were much better art packages available when we were using 68k chips.

Like Photogenics - PPaint - ImageFX.

Please folks before you bother to sign this silly petition: take a look at this Web Page called "whatever happened to Deluxe Paint" by Dallas Hodgson.. He wrote much of the code for later versions of DPAINT...

Whatever Happened to Deluxe Paint (by Dallas Hodgson)

EA is a software distributor not a production house... When DPaint V shipped on CD thru EA UK it was their last STUDIO product ever shipped and like AmigaOS (after Commodore) almost never saw the light of day. Some company in the UK actually owns the rights to it now (can't remember the name but they along with Acid Software) got the distribution rights from EA...

So in other words, it's not their code (the company might not even exist anymore) and the product is lost...

I wish you all the luck in the world, but EA won't budge on this type of thing most likely and why would they? There is no market for them.. Someone should request they release the source code to all Amiga products into GPL (Gnu Public License) instead of asking them to redo the product...

That way someone can pick it back up again.. If the code even still exists. I bet Dallas Hodgson could shed some light on that :-)

I unfortunatly agree with most of whats been said already. The most you`d get out of EA is a small chuckle. They won`t even think about going anywhere near a new version of DPaint. I`d like a a new "from scratch" version of DPaint, but that will have to be made and sold by siomebody else and be called something else. Lets face it, many Amiga paint packages share many features with it anyway. TVPaint is like a much more modern versison of it, except with no animation. I`ve been designing (roughly and slowly) an all powerful paint/animation package, now and then. I`d really like something new to scribble on. Lets hope that somebody creates something. It won`t be a new DPaint though.

I fully agree, and I also think it should be free... THus I will point again at AROS's UberPaint...

Free? Naaah. If I was to create an incredibly powerful 2D animation/paint package I`d want some sort of reward for it. Not everything can be free. If it were a simple recreation of DPaint then maybe yeah, but something new, would have to be sold rather than given away. Yes theres stuff like Perfect paint, but PfP isn`t gooed enough to be called an all powerful application. Yes I use it (rarely), but it doesn`t and won`t do everything I want. Saying that none of the other stuff I have does everything eiter, but at least they do more for me, that PfP does. Free is good for the user, but not for the developer, in the short term. In the long term its bad for the user too.

I have to admit that my favourite 2D paint package is Personal Paint (Cloanto) and I use this very often.

The quality and ease of use is second to none.

Use this instead of DPaint if you must. :-P

If only we could aim Amidelf's enthusiasm towards more viable projects, he'd be a force to be reckoned with :-P

Also, by now surely Dpaint would have to be rewritten pretty much from scratch to actually make it useful and properly compatible. We might as well learn the lessons from Dpaint's design and apply them to something new.

Lets go have a geezer at Uberpaint, you've got me intrigued Bloodline :-)

EA is not a charity and should not be asked like one.

Also the petition is wrote in such a comedy way no one apart from die hards would take it seriously.

Why not go one step futher and bombard EA phone lines with "Support the Amiga" chants and send them begging letters and hate mail (let history repeat itself).

It would be better to support those authors who are already supporting the Amiga. fxPaint, PerfectPaint, PersonalPaint, etc.

An updated version would be cool and I guess the purpose is [EDIT] NOT the program itself.

Photogenics ImageFX , yes but they're not paint programs, different purpose here.
Been a while since I used it but I think PPaint wasn't even 24bit.

Sorry Jose but Cloanto seem to have taken the opportunity to port PPaint to the AmigaOne/OS4 computer :-)

As you can see I'm very happy.
:-P
