    I have been using Felgo for a week now and so far I am very impressed.

    I am a bit stuck on one thing at the moment and was hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    I would like to allow the user to draw on screen with a mouse/finger. I assume I would activate a mouse area and while the mouse is down draw a line of 1 pixel at the mouse position. Not sure if this is the most effective way.

    I would also like to add the ability to erase a line. How do I approach this?

    I am a bit of a noob when it comes to game development, so apologies if this is a noob question.

    Hi JJ,

    great that you like it so far, and welcome to the Felgo community. 🙂

    For your example, I can see 2 ways to do this:

    1.) Use the LineItem component and add to the points array when the mouse position changes by a given delta (to avoid performance getting too bad due to loads of points added).

    2.) Add a new SingleSpriteFromFile object when the mouse position changed by a given delta. The image you are using should have the color of the line you prefer and probably it’s best to make it a circle with smooth edges. This has the advantage that it is more performant, because only a single draw call is needed for all “points” along the line. However, this solution is also a bit more complex and for a proof of concept I would go for the above approach first.

    Cheers, Chris
