New Projects

Pixel Vision OS allows you to create new projects in the Workspace drive or on a disk that has read/write access on your computer’s file system. You can not create new projects on the desktop or inside the root of another game’s folder. To get started, select New Project from the menu and give it a name.

If a core game file already exists in a game folder, its name will be disabled in the menu. You can always delete a game file and create a new one from scratch if you want to start over again. Likewise, creating a new color, sprite, tilemap, sound, or music file can not be renamed when creating them from scratch.
