PattView Wii 0.1 Alpha

by VashGH
PattView Wii, the long-awaited Wii Homebrew release of the popular Animal Crossing: City Folk (Let's Go to the City!) pattern editing application. Fans of the PC application will find that the experience they're used to is now streamlined for use with the Wii Remote. First time users will find it incredibly easy to hop in and edit all of the game's 316 patterns. More experienced users can use some of the advanced tools to lay out murals and create beautiful works of art without limiting themselves with the built-in palettes.

-Edit all 316 patterns
-Easily change between the 16 built-in palettes
-Quickly browse to the pattern you want to edit using the new search window
-Sleek "Cover Flow" style main hub
-Test paths and murals in the new Mural Scrapbook

Coming in the Beta release:
-Display and edit pattern names/creators
-Simple vs. Pro-design switch
-Professional Design Studio

The Professional Design Studio will allow for patterns to be created without the limitations of a built-in palette. The user will have a standard color chart (#000000 through #FFFFFF) and the freedom to create patterns with as much detail as they like. This feature is for the more experienced pattern artists. It will arrive with the Beta release.
