Sorry about that Deus, I had posted the topic before I went through them all, the download link is now available, they all work perfect except 4 or 5 that have a minor glitch or two.  (Y)

wow thats very interesting, i dont even know  :D you should help us with ENIGMA !

Gra I dont think you just place the folder, if you are on Linux just download the version and cd to the dir and compiling and run ~/.install

I think gra, I can't remember now exactly how I setup QScintilla  :(

Hey just a heads up finally got a hold of DatZach and he wants to write a GMK API for us.

There shivering in fear gra  :D And we shall prevail!!!

D3D models are hard, you have to use a converter to get them from obj and stuff. Just google around there are plenty, or else make the model with some D3D model editor. Eventually gra were going to support obj's and all the other popular model formats.  (Y)

Thanks gra! It still needs converted, I just moved it here so the source code is available since YYG kicked me off their site.

Works in Progress / Project Mario
« on: April 09, 2013, 09:56:00 PM »

Project Mario started when I decided to make a few modifications to Slayer 64's (GMC Member) conversion of Project Kingspace. Before I knew it I was writing an entire Mario clone, it just happened like that. Project Mario is meant to be a 3D Platforming example for GM programmers, who might be interested in programming a game in the genre. I attempt in no way to make this a full game only a few levels and examples and some custom created graphics, as to not use copyrighted material. Feel free to use anything in the example, including textures, resources, audio, and code. You do not have to credit me but some of the GMC members and others who helped make this open source project would appreciate recognition for their work!

Off-Topic / How to get a free website for your game...
« on: April 09, 2013, 09:46:07 PM »
I am going to explain to you how to get a free website with a regular domain, simply, quickly, and free with no advertisements.


First your going to want your host. My personal suggestions is Weebly as they are mainstream have a very easy yet powerful designer and have tons of free templates, they also don't display ads, just a little "This website was made with Weebly" at the bottom.

Register with them and make your site then publish it. When you publish it you will get a url in the form of

Now we want to get a free domain to forward to so your visitors dont always have to type that long name, many people suggest or but I suggest just .tk

Register with them, or log in with your google account, and fill out the form with your website subdomain url. After a few hours their server will refresh and you should be able to get people to visit your website with
Sometimes it is instant though  ;D

NOTE: because some free site hosts like weebly already use redirection you must include the FULL path to the page of redirection eg. for it is...
Code: [Select]
Free Forum

If you would also like to get a free forum with no ads, the best choice to go with is, ProphpBB. It has tons of built in themes and is easily customizeable and simple to set up.

Register with them and make your forum and youll get a link to your forum you can put on your site, and you can just use to make a forward domain for your forum.


And there you have it, your own free website, with great uptime, simple to make, easy to edit, and does most of everything you need it to! :) <- Is a good example of a site you can put up doing this.  (Y)
