Writing Ghost 2.1 is finally here, download the latest version of our text editing, anti-edit software program.


Update on Writing Ghost 2.1

Posted on : 09-01-2013 | By : admin | In : Software Development, Updates



Writing Ghost 2.1 has been put on and off hold for the last year or more, unfortunately due to other projects I will be unlikely to release it anytime in the next few weeks. However Writing Ghost for Windows 8 has the fundamentals (i.e. offline stuff) built so it is possible with a little styling and online features building that this might end up being released before the main 2.1 (however I say this light heartedly, as I actually doubt that will happen).

Anyway, 2.1 will be released at some point, when I complete a few more projects, and it will hopefully be done soon (but I won’t say when this time).

First screenshot of my Writing Ghost for Windows 8, using default black and white theme for now, shows most features that will be in the release, adding more features and fixing current ones.

Some new projects to expect in the next three months

Hello, it is that time of year again when students return to their natural habitat (and I don’t mean the library).
I am James Record a final year Computer Games Programming student at the University of Derby and this is what I will be working on in the next three months.

By December 2012 there will be some new projects for this website.

Writing Ghost for Windows 8
I am writing a new version of Writing Ghost for the brand new Windows 8 app store, although I cannot promise it will make the store itself, I will be working on a version which will be compatible with Windows RT and would be suitable for users to use the program on new devices.
Writing Ghost Win8 will be based on the latest Writing Ghost 2.1 file system (which I haven’t forgotten about). Hopefully I will be able to release v2.1 along with the Win8 version (although again I mention, I do not know whether it will make the public app store).
There will be more on this to come, along with possible screenshots and development stages.
Depending on popularity and how many people use windows 8 will depend on whether further work is continued on the project after December.

Zombie Game
I am also working on a computer game based around the idea of time and zombies. I cannot go into specifics (partly because they will change and also because this is a work in progress and there are ears listening). But basically it involves travelling back-and-forth between two times in the near future to solve puzzles and defeat a zombie outbreak.
To stay away from clichés there will be minimal conventional weaponry, most of the game play is puzzle based and exploring the map, shooting zombies is only necessary to survive and stay alive long enough to see the next puzzle.
I will not be working on this project alone: There will be 3 programmers and 8 artists (spread between environments, character modelling, rigging and animations and prop and 2D art). There are currently 11 of us in total making this so far the largest video game development team I have worked in.
Also there will be screenshots, videos and the demo will be available on completion in December for people to play. This will be a demo and no further work is expected beyond December.
More blog post will be made later in development.

Writing Ghost v2.1 back on development

Posted on : 19-07-2012 | By : admin | In : Updates



After much contemplation about the future of Writing Ghost as a software program with many ideas and abandoned features, I can now say that it is currently under re-development and will be released with new features and hopefully a lot of bug fixes from v2.0.

I will not specify the launch date and whether it will be 2.1 beta or the full thing but will hope it will be before the end of September 2012.

Code Perfect will unlikely be in this version (maybe one day though) and we haven’t decided on whether to build the Store yet but stay tuned and be ready for the latest version soon.

Also continue downloading v2.0 in the meantime and help us debug it by suggesting features and report bugs and fatal errors to our Bug Tracker. or report to our bug tracking Email

Writing Ghost is getting a directory

Posted on : 13-10-2011 | By : admin | In : Updates



The next version of Writing Ghost will have a directory (called the store) to make publishing your writings among others easier, you will be able to browse by category or search. You can also submit your own to the store for others to read your’s, now of course you don’t have to if you want to keep it private but for those who want others to read it while maintaining secure reading then this will be good for you.

Writing Ghost – Code Perfect

Posted on : 28-11-2010 | By : admin | In : Updates



SeeCodeNotGames are trying out a new software product to go with our Writing Ghost software programs. The program is called Code Perfect and is a code editor for Writing Ghost.

You will be able to edit code like you can in other programs with keyword colouring and there may also be a simple code checker, it can then also save as a Writing Ghost project so now programmers and coders can share their latest code so others can read it without being able to copy and paste it.

Suitable for tutorials where it would encourage people to learn through typing it out themselves, rather than copying it in one.

The final version of this won’t be around for a while, it may end up being in the full version of 2.0 or maybe not until later.

EDIT – (30 /07 /12) – This software program still works and the code will be embedded into Writing Ghost the next version but will not be active until possibly in the future.

Writing Ghost 2.0 is now available

Posted on : 30-10-2010 | By : admin | In : Releases, Software Development



Join the hundreds of people who downloaded version 1.1, now with a much improved version 2.0. Protect your writings from plagiarism now and allow the transmission of your works without it being edited or copy and pasted.

Version 2.0 also has a spell checker, find and replace and generally better editor and more secure saving system that can still load v1.1 files. Step-by-step we are working towards making a better FREE alternative to other text editors.

Writing Ghost 2.0 (again)

Posted on : 29-10-2010 | By : admin | In : Updates



I know the release of the beta for Writing Ghost 2.0 keeps getting delayed but hopefully within the next few days a temporary fix should be added that will allow the beta version to begin. (Of course this will be fixed for the final version).
