Off-Topic / GM:Tizen
« on: September 05, 2014, 09:35:34 pm »

They are now charging 200 big ones for the Tizen module (it used to be free with pro just like Mac which is now $100). Who even wants to develop for Tizen anyways? I might if I get a Tizen device, but there's no Tizen Appstore in existence and until there is that price tag is ludacris. The module for anyone who plans to make more than pocket change is completely useless and will be for a long time.

Developing ENIGMA / Re: The benefits of Visual Studio's compiler?

Thank you Rusky that was the perfect answer! You seem to know exactly what your talking about and I respect that. This was just asked out of curiosity. If porting to Visual Studio doesn't help anything, then I guess it's not a major concern, which is good, you guys have enough on your plate.

Thank you! :D

Developing ENIGMA / The benefits of Visual Studio's compiler?
« on: September 05, 2014, 12:46:18 pm »
I know we already beat GMStudio's game performance by a landslide but they are using Visual Studio for both their interpreted and YYC C++ runners. We use MinGW which is called "Min" for a reason. What would be the benefits if a dev got Visual Studio's trial and ported ENIGMA with it before the expiration date? I know no one here is willing to buy Visual Studio, and the free version (not counting the Express Edition) is for noncommercial evaluation purposes only.

Would this be a game performance boost on Windows?

Would this make game file sizes smaller on Windows?

Would it help us pave the way to making appstore-ready Windows 8 apps?

How do I cross-compile?

Does this mean I can compile for Mac without a Mac? Does this mean I compile for Mac by compiling in a virtual machine embedding Mac inside a Linux or Windows PC? Both of which go against Apple's terms. I could be wrong but this isn't legal either. You buy a Mac, you don't own it, you rent it for life, either you go by their terms or you have to jump in a lake.

Mac software can only be built on Mac in order for it to be accepted on their store. As for the virtual machine, if you want to run Mac software legally, you need to own a physical Mac device to run it on. Even if you already own a physical Mac and try to run Mac in a VM on Windows or Linux the rules still apply.

Thank you Robert! The super zoomed viewport is part of the challenge. Wouldn't you have limited vision if you were flipping repeatedly? That and this is meant to be hard like flappy bird. It's easier if you take note of the level layout, that's why you have so many lives, it's in part a memory game because the levels aren't randomly generated. Thanks for playing! I can still change it without much hassel, but it can get too easy really quick.

Thank you for trying it sorlok_reaves! What flavor of Linux are you running? Thank you for the tip! Though zip can work too if you check that in the properties manually before you zip it. I created the file directly from GMStudio's IDE which means it was "built" on Windows so I can't fix this problem until after I do this stoff on my Ubuntu machine.

Right click -> Properties -> Permissions -> check "allow to run as application" it's built for Ubuntu but I don't have the kind of time to check all the popular distro's that's a lot of work. Removing the spaces in it's path/filename and running the game file from the terminal will show you the *.so libs which may be missing in your distro.

The game is now complete and ready to download for Windows and Linux. I also added a better description. Macintosh, Android, and OUYA coming soon! :D

Works in Progress / Re: Iji is now in Beta! Please test~
« on: September 01, 2014, 10:09:31 pm »
It's odd that this game was ported so quickly with very few and minor problems yet not a single one of my projects work in ENIGMA, even with the fact Iji is a lot more complex and huge of a project than all my projects combined.

Anyways, you've done great! I'm so happy you made it this far so quickly! :D

Ego free I was going to upgrade to windows 8 but I've heard a lot of bad things about it so no promises until after I hear you are interested, thanks to your contribution that I've waited so long for I'd like to reward you a donation from about $20-$40. I offered this to Robert in times past but he wanted me to use the money for something better.

I want everyone to know this when I offer donations I do it as a joy not a burden. I really like to share the love. What I get out of it is the pleasure to help someone who has helped me greatly. :) I like to make people happy. It makes me happy to see people happy. :D

I don't want my clean Ubuntu install junked up in 1 week so it sounds like an install script isn't a good idea.

Thank you Robert! :D But this game has been around for almost 3+ years. Just recently I decided to re-publish it with some very minor changes made.

This is great! GameMaker: Studio beat us to it though. While they may say the contrary on the YoYoGames System Requirements page ...
Computer running Ubuntu required for export

You can technically compile just dandy without a single computer running linux. Trying to "compile" may throw an error saying "Can't connect to Ubuntu" but the files are still outputed anyways and they worked just fine after I sent them to my virtual machine. Since they've done a pretty spotless job at maintaining their Ubuntu export there's really no difference between that and a Windows export in terms of how your games should run. Unless you happen to really like Linux, you don't really need one to compile for it without worry concerning bug complaints.
