General ENIGMA / Re: Enigma and the Liberated Pixel Cup competition

Thanks for the answers. The missing functions will not be a problem; I will work my way around them or implement basic versions if the need arises.

I found the binary in /tmp, and it ran without problem in both Debian Stable and Ubuntu 12.04. I also tried to compile from LateralGM (from the menu, Enigma->Compile if I recall correctly), but the only result was a null-pointer exception. What is the easiest way to compile for Windows and Mac from Linux? Also, how do I control whether ENIGMA compiles a 32-bit or 64-bit binary? I have run ENIGMA on a 64-bit computer, so I assume that the binary in /tmp is 64-bit.

Hi everyone,

I have a couple of questions regarding Enigma and the Liberated Pixel Cup competition that is currently running. For those that don't know, the LPC is a competition for free-as-in-freedom games, with a month for creating free art (which is nearly done, as of this writing), and a month for programming free games using that art (which is going to begin in a couple of days). You can find more info at I would like to use Enigma in this competition, and in that regard, there are a couple of details I am uncertain about and would like your opinion on.

The first is whether Enigma can be used in the competition. Any entries in the competition is required to be free software, and as far as I can see, Enigma fits the bill, although I would like to check with you before I enter the contest.

The second is the best way to employ Enigma and games created with it. I haven't had much luck getting Enigma running under Ubuntu 12.04 (something about a parsing error, I think), but Debian Stable seems to work just fine. Downloading Enigma and running the game source file on it seems a bit bothersome, but should be fine for the judges, and other users can simply download a binary if they can't be bothered to download Enigma and set it up. Is there any other options, or any advice regarding that?

Thanks for your time.
