Issues Help Desk / Re: I need some help.. with exporting

are you running on LINUX or Windows?

if you are on Windows, double-clicking on the icon should be enough to start up ENIGMA.

If you are using LINUX and you double-click on the lateral GM icon, it will only startup the IDE without the compiler, which seems to your case. You should have a file named '' in your 'ENIGMA-DEV' directory. This you need to make executable by right-click once, then left-click 'Properties'. From there you go to the 'Permissions' tab, and make sure the 'run as Executable' check box is ticked.

Afterwards you double click and run the '' script and when LGM should now have the green button present.

I've done a Windows version for my WIP.

This version has a amount of limited levels to play. You can check my page at​ for a more detailed information, as well as the download link.

Soon you will see releases of Tetris,  Arkanoid and some other shooters  published in the very near future.

If you enjoyed the game and have any suggestions, then comment as much as you'd like.

Works in Progress / Pacman for Linux demo
« on: May 11, 2018, 10:10:43 am »
Greetings and salutations all. I've been talking about doing remakes of various arcade games lately and I'm happy to done a demo for you to download.  Comment, criticize and let me know what you think.

There are only 10 playable levels for now. I'm working on more features to make it a full-featured game. What you have is basically the core of the game.

When you download/extract the file you may have  to set the 'execute as program' bit in the Properties tab, when you right click on it.

I will also upload a Windows very soon. [I have to make a few minor adjustments first]

hope you enjoy it.

I made some more progress on my Pacman remake. Added a start screen, some sound effects and fixed some bugs. With the help of Goombert a major bug was fixed which allowed Pacman to go back to its starting position. With that fixed, the core system is finished. All that's needed is to add some more levels.

You can check the video here....

Works in Progress / remakes of my Favorites Arcade Games for Linux

I'm working on a series of remakes of games I've enjoyed over the years to highlight the capabilities of ENIGMA. They are opensource and free to use as one sees fit. In short they are more like Tutorials and examples which i hope will be of use to you.

I've already done one for Tetris. this time around I'm doing a Pacman remake. You can watch the video here.

With a little bit of tweaking, I got another old GM file working in ENIGMA for both platforms, Windows and LINUX.

It's a bit advanced with the high-score table not working. I'm working on fixing that.

The file is a Tetris remake originally created for GM. Here is the file.

Here is the WIKI page which describes the types of Data Structures ENIGMA supports.

and Here is the WIKI page of the Data Structures Functions ENIGMA supports.

I'm not sure what you want to accomplish but there is support for creating and manipulating ds_lists, ini-files and working with data in different formats.

Of course one of the more experienced users can give you a more technical explanation. And you would need to make sure that certain 'Extensions' are activated depending on the type of platform you are working in.

hopes this helps.

The example file I posted was originally remade to work on systems running LINUX. When I tested it on my Windows machine, I got an error which I have fixed now.

I am also providing 3 links for the same example.

for the '.gm6' file here is the link

for the zipped '.gmx' file, here is the link

Tips, Tutorials, Examples / A rough draft on written Tutorials

Greetings all. It has been quite a while since i last posted. I've been very busy of late with other work which have taken a lot of my time. However I've still involved in ENIGMA if only for a couple of hours.

I've in the process of writing some Tutorials for LINUX users. My first publication is not quite finished but I thought I would share what I have done so far with you, to get your opinions.

The link to the file is here.

I also plan on doing a Tower Defense tutorial, A Guide to using ENIGMA and migrating GM samples and scripts to work for LINUX.

Thanks for response. I must admit i did miss you from the forum. You have a unique perspective on various topics which i enjoy. I am sorry for the family drama, we all go through it sometimes. That's when one  needs to breathe, relax and maybe consider the others point of view of the matter. Hope it gets better though.

I will try out those you recommended, especially Osu! and Bumbledore as I'm not familiar with them.

My passion for using LINUX stems from my unfortunate experience which continue to plague me where Windows is concerned; even to this day. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of great Software for Windows. I just can't deal with the instability, its exploits, the bloatness of the OS and viruses.

From an early age I was introduced to other Operating Systems before Windows and Linux. Contrary to popular belief, Apple and Windows were not the first ones to implement a GUI into their software. Commodore had created a piece of software on a floppy disk for their 8-bit computers named GEOS but that is another topic for another time.

Concerning my file-server.......I had bought a new motherboard and installed Windows strictly to handle Windows related ENIGMA problems.  As it is now that system is not booting up. It starts up then, shuts off. My LINUX machines still runs though.

My studio is progressing. The roof is now on. I've also been contracted to do some electrical work for the next 3 months, so that's some cash to do the interior design and stuff. I will pop in as much as I can though.

it's as if both of you are reading my mind!

for my 'Linux Dancing' app, i want to give make the user the option of using their own sprite, so I was looking for a way to implement this with 'Tiny Dialogs'.....and lo and behold, here is what I was looking for.
