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.

Account Related Settings, Forum Profile Information.
Splitting those two apart just makes it FRIKKIN DIFFICULT to find what you need.

Look and Layout, Preferences
Those two. Do they really deserve two categories?

Notifications and Email, Personal Message Options
Same thing, different divisions

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.

Well, the way I see it, this forum has a nice new skin (except when you're not logged in), but other than that, it's an SMF, and is no better than any other of the 100,000,000 GM sites out there.

The EDC was hand coded, and has only the better features. The only things I like about forums is they give people a place to answer questions in mass, and they have a PM system. Really, I like the EDC's layout better, since it is more geared towards things we'll be doing, such as game making and example posting, whereas a forum is just a message board.

Both have their perks, but I'd like the two to share databases and for the EDC to link to the forums. That way, you have your new games right up front, as well as the latest blogs; but right underneath you have a conglomeration of anyone needing help or requesting a team, or God knows what else.

It removes the need for a sillyness forum that we'd have to be real strict about. If you don't like the person, stay away from their blog; and if you do, hang out there.

Those're just my takes.

Or all of the above.

R3 will likely provide more insight into problems like that.

It'll work anywhere as long as everything is in the same folder.

As for the mess when you throw a syntax error, I am very pleased to say that the glitch is totally fixed in R3.

We're working on it.

Well, they are. I'm just kinda working on the actual program.

We're working as fast as we can.

The room editor will be taken care of in R3.

I'm sorry, I've been devoting more time to the actual project than to its progress page. :P

Maybe that's a good thing anyway.

Thank you though, that was still a nice thought and good thinking.

Now now, children. (Sorry, couldn't resist)

.NET has its virtues. It also has a lot of setbacks that make other languages more appealing, such as most computers not coming with the 100 MB framework, iirc.
