The new alpha build of the AmiDARK Engine is now available for both AmigaOS4.1 and MorphOS 2.7.
Here are all the major changes between this build and the previous one (that was only for AmigaOS4.1)
I have Restructured entirely the archive content with more "specific" folders.
1.Folder SDK that contain the .a library needed, it's the game engine. Also contain the .h definition files needed to know which functions are available.
2.Folder HELP that'll contain all help in HTML file format.
3.Folder RELEASE contain files like default app icon and an "AmiDARK Engine" logo you can put if you want in your application.
4.Folder "Source Code & Binaries" that contain all actual source code and binaries :
4.a : "Commands sets" will contain "function use" samples
4.b : "DarkBASIC Professional" contain demonstration ported from DarkBASIC Professional to the AmiDARK Engine.
4.c : Technical Demo" will contain special technology demonstration.
4.d : Will contain "default" project "skeleton" definition for various tool (like AmiDevCPP, CodeBench, etc ... ) that can be used to create new projects
Many news sample, source code, technical demonstration and DarkBASIC Professional portage will appear with the next release of the Game Engine.
I have also made many changes/improvements in the game engine.
Don't forget that under MorphOS, the Escape Key don't work under GLUT so, until this bug is fixed, I've put the "Quit Application" key to the Function Key F12.
Under AmigaOS 4.1, the "Quit Application" key is always "Escape Key" as it work correctly.
Here are the details of these 2 archives.
