Well, I can say with some certainty that I've never released something just right the first time, in my entire life.

However, bare with us. At the last minute, we noticed a few things that weren't working, and scrambled to make them do so. This kind of thing generally leads to more mess.

I don't want to spend much time preaching about it, however, tomorrow a patch will be released to fix the majority of the known problems. You'll notice that ENIGMA-R2 has an a at the end. This is because it took me five minutes to realize I'd done something wrong there and reupload.

Tomorrow I'll sort out some of the rest of the stuff. The worst of it includes some borkage with place_free, an explanation for which can be found here:

draw_text will hopefully be reimplemented, global. and object. will work again, and the world will be happy.
All of these, along with LGM's importation of build mode edits, were broken without anyone realizing it. This kind of thing is forgivable with such a huge project, right? :P

The version you have now is still somewhat usable, but tomorrow we'll patch the holes.

(Disclaimer: I could be lying)

Note: Some of you may have found that you downloaded R2 from SourceForge. We apologize. I'm not telling you whose fault that is, so THERE.

Anyway, I haven't slept in two days. Which probably doesn't help the disorder, so if you'll forgive me, I'm going to try that.

GM will be able to run faster than ENIGMA in a blank room as long as ENIGMA is OpenGL.

However, try testing ENIGMA and GM under some stress, like lots and lots of lines. You'll find ENIMGA can easily outdo Game Maker there, as long as your GL drivers meet the stone age specification.

This Code Returns an Error. Lol.

Well, COUT is mostly for console applications. Try show_message().
However, ENIGMA tries to isolate C++ from EDL, to preserve compatibility.

To use raw C++, use cpp {}.

Though, in this case, that won't work, as enigma does not make use of iostream.h.

I'm afraid of any megabytes the user has to have, and terrified of megabytes the user user has to have.

Thinking openly, the GPL says I have to give you the code, not an environment to edit it in.

Has nothing to do with the GL version. Stop calling me slow. Stop blaming me.

I had a request for the executables that were used in the making of that movie.
Here they are, as zip:

keyboard_check() actually wasn't implemented in R2. LateralGM also freezes when GCC throws a lot of errors. Rest assured, those are both fixed for the alpha, and the keyboard_check functions are implemented.

That was indeed the point. XD

I told a2h to archive this because ism told clam to archive this; but I didn't actually know what I was asking him, exactly. But looks like he did it anyway, so, nice job! ^_^;

Seems a little far fetched for what so far is such a small project.

You could consider joining the ENIGMA team, depending on how much you know. We lack any sort of port for Mobile Phones and the XBox. The others, though, we shouldn't have trouble with.

For clarification, SDL sucks, GLUT is unstable, and I really don't want to see anything else you listed.

We are using native APIs for the most low level control we can get, and to not have to rely on the work of other people who did not design something with ENIGMA in mind.

Release 3 has a Linux build. IsmAvatar has already assembled a working equivalent for every WinApi function I have.

Rusky's right; var has a variable for first and second dimensional size.

In fact, I was planning on a function for those.

I can not see integrating a page of games and blogs into this huge, ugly, bloated SMF forum. I just can't. What the heck would that look like, because, I can easily imagine the forums EDC style, but not the EDC SMF style.

Look at those.

Splitting those two apart just makes it FRIKKIN DIFFICULT to find what you need.

Those two. Do they really deserve two categories?

I don't know how much of the rest I share with regular members, but come on.

That is so bloated...

Lemme answer you by saying nothing, then making a huge release with lots of info.

Though I intend to do everything GM does, only faster.
