The world does not evolve around C++
Blasphemy!

Sadly, until they develop a true compiler for Python, Harri is right, the world does evolve and revolve around C++  >:(

edsquare, you tried a beta OS on a physical disk? D:

From my point of view every version of windows is a beta version (Well okey vista was an alpha version but still . . . )  :D , hell some "Final" versions of Ubuntu (When I still used it) were beta versions too.  ;)

General ENIGMA / Re: Please vote for ENIGMA's new license

Ok, first of all GPL does allow linking with what ever / however you want as long as you don't distribute it, for instance for internal use in a company without the intent to distribute.

LGPL allows linking with propietary code as long as you do it dynamically for sell or in any way for private use.

MPLv2 allows static linking while protecting your code, (MPL: The copyleft applies to any files containing MPLed code.) This means you can sell your game as long as you make sure the recipients can have access to the MPLd code contained within your game (The engine and any modification you make to it basically), so it's almost like the LGPL with a linking exception.

See for your self: https://www.mozilla.org/MPL/2.0/FAQ.html

Off-Topic / Re: Which Java IDE?

She's exaggerating, I opened up Qt Creator with my LGM C++ port and it used slightly less RAM than Eclipse with LGM and the plugin opened up. I like Eclipse purely because it's interface is NOT bloated compared to Netbeans which is pretty cluttered.


Also Eclipse does have a WYSIWYG plugin for Swing, I used it before to learn various layouts before I got the hang of them.

Great! Thanks!  (Y)

I find this whole topic to be a huge conspiracy honestly, why all of the sudden is this such a huge issue when nobody is even trying to make a commercial game with ENIGMA? I could understand if someone had something ready to release and had concerns about licensing their product, but nobody does, so exactly how did this all of the sudden become an issue?

100% with you man.  (Y)

Eclipse is quite stable, can be sluggish due to its bulkiness but is generally fast enough for typical use, and uses a bit of ram due to its bulkiness, but it's not going to elope with your RAM. If you're that concerned about speed/ram consumption, use a text editor.

My concern about ram is because I only have 2Gb so minus 512Mb for the OS I have 1.5Gb available (more or less), is it enough for eclipse?

My one main complaint with Netbeans has always been that it gives very obscure errors. For some reason Eclipse seems to make the errors a lot easier to read.
My one main complaint with Eclipse is that it is bloated, which can make it a turn-off for people who don't plan to use it frequently, because there's tons of features that you'll never use. That said, surprisingly, I'm pretty sure I've used every single on of the buttons/features in eclipse at some point.

I agree that Eclipse is the way to go. Netbeans has the advantage of a WYSIWYG, but I have a strong opposition to WYSIWYGs because they bloat your code and force their style. They are useful only for proof-of-concept layouts and learning some possible ways to do layouts. Also, I'm sure there's some plugin for an eclipse WYSIWYG at this point.

Thanks for the insight Ism!  (Y)

I have a spanish friend who develops in Netbeans and then loads it to Eclipse for debugging, now I see why.

What about stability/speed/ram consuption?

By the way and as aside, this kind of discussion/arguments/topics do turn people away from ENIGMA, if the same people that use it already and say they are going to help developing it are the first ones to bash it.

But whatever floats your boat eh?

Just like here in México, but that doesn't make my statement any less true.

Now, not every FOSS project might be wort it's salt for some or even for most of us, but that doesn't make all the rest trash, just as the fact that to be safe from malware using windows you need, at least 2 third party applications.

That just makes your arguments irrelevant.  ???

Some people prefer blond's, some prefer brunette's, some don't care.

Whatever gets your rocks off  (Y)

My arguments are irrelevant?

Well then so are yours, since any claim made without proof can be dismised without proofs too.  (Y)

Do you mean ugly and 'not-fit for purpose'?

Then I guess we agree  (Y)

Really?

Do you use a smartphone? Unless you have one of the last released with windows or an iPhone most of the market is coped by android, same in the tablets.

Many of the big studios in Hollywood disagree with you.

Also NASA and Wall Street.

And many countries who have made the switch to Linux for their government computers and systems.

Plus every time you use the web you are more likely than not using Linux, that's why the slash is like this / and not like in windows \.

I guess before making such comment you already tried every FOSS application out there?

[/quote=edsquare]What I meant was : If you implement it as an extension it can be activated/deactivated by the person making the game, so it should not present any problem with your games running on any OS.

Yes that is my plan, I've got the functions outlined and I'll have them done soon, I have tons of LGM stuff to do.

But as an extension you can activate/desactivate it, or not?
Yes, but one doesn't exist. Someone would have to implement the Windows API calls in GML, or a DLL packaged into the extension. From within GM you can enable extensions per project.

I (and Robert) would like to make an extension for ENIGMA to do it, which are also toggleable.

As explained in PM, it's all forgotten and water under the bridge.  I was just being general the same way lone and others were using general terms and not targeting anybody, some people might feel targeted due to stuff they said before, but in all honesty I never had you even in mind.

So no problem moving along, all forgotten.

no need for making up/out or what not (I'm straight !) :D

How do you know if you've never tried it? ;-)
