Designing a simple emblem in the Emblem Editor.

The Emblem Editor is a feature used in the Garage mode of F-Zero GX. Essentially a heavily scaled-down drawing program, it allows players to design various emblems that can be affixed to custom vehicles.

Individual emblems are saved onto the memory card and require 3 blocks each to save. Emblems can be saved to and loaded from memory cards in either Slot A or Slot B of the console.

Commands

Players can draw on a single square canvas with the following commands available for their brush:

  • Draw, which adds a single pixel when the A button is pressed. Holding the A button and moving the cursor will continue to draw pixels.
  • Erase, which removes pixels when the A button is pressed. Holding the A button and moving the cursor will continue to erase pixels.
  • Fill, which fills an area with the selected colour.
  • Line, which creates lines. Pressing A will place the start of the line, and pressing it a second time elsewhere on the canvas will create an unbroken line between the two points.
  • Draw a Circle, where pressing A and moving the cursor will create a single circle. This tool can only draw circles, and not ellipses.
  • Draw a Rectangle, where pressing A and moving the cursor will create a single rectangle. Unlike the previous tool, it does not automatically scale the edges of the rectangle to form a perfect square.
  • Enlarge the Edit Screen, which allows the player to decide between three levels of zoom on the canvas, allowing for finer adjustments to the emblem.
  • Draw and Fill a Circle, which is identical to Draw a Circle, but automatically fills the circle instead of creating a hollow shape.
  • Draw and Fill a Rectangle, which is identical to Draw a Rectangle, but automatically fills the rectangle instead of creating a hollow shape.
  • Rotate Emblem, which allows the player to rotate the emblem by 90 degrees in any direction.
  • Invert Emblem, which flips the emblem along the y-axis.
  • Load a Sample, which allows the player to select a pre-designed emblem and edit it with the tools they have.
  • Clear Emblem, which completely blanks the canvas.
  • Undo Operation, which clears the previous action by the player
  • Redo Operation, which re-adds anything cleared by the player via Undo Operation
  • Load Emblem, which allows the player to load any emblem they have made and edit it
  • Save Emblem, which allows the player to save their emblem, either as a new emblem or as an updated version of an older emblem
  • Close the Editor, which exits the player back to the Garage menu.
