Game Editor Source Code

Postby makslane » Sat Oct 18, 2008 3:09 pm

Now is time to a new era in the Game Editor development.

I've announce before the open the Game Editor interface, but now, the plans are others.

Game Editor source code is now available for anyone thats want to get the code compile and use.

The Game Editor development site is:
http://code.game-editor.com

I hope to get great developers to work on the Game Editor source code to create a really great application :-)

Thanks,
Makslane

Gosh! This is great! If only I had any experience with C++... I only know straight C unfortunately, so until I get into OOP I won't be much help... I browsed the files and discovered that you seem to be using SDL for your graphics (if I'm not mistaken). Maybe I'll be able to participate to GE's development in a few years... I'm currently in my second year of univerisity, obtaining a computer software engineering degree, planning to get my master's degree if possible too. You can expect I'll try my hand at this once I get the knowledge I need. Cheers for a bright future in indie game devellopment with GE!

That's great! But is there a link where I can download all the files in a archive?

There is no archive links now. But by using the TortoiseSVN is a easy way to get the updated code every day.

Hi, i recently found about this annoucement. I dont understand completely what does this mean.
Is this the source code for the full game-editor, or just one component?
From reading the license that was in the source code from the svn, Im reading that a single indie developer can make a commercial game with this source Does the single developer have to pay a royalty to the game-editor devs for the sales of the titles made with it? And finally, from reading the compilation guide, it mentions that several extra 3rd party components needed. For example, the raknet network library, which according to its license, it requires at least a $500 license for commercial use. How does that fit into this game editor source code release?

I would appreciate if someone would kindly clear this points up.

Thanks.

Makslane - hi. Long time since we communicated. Glad to see that Game Editor is still going strong. Very interesting new approach to development. I plan to get involved.

The full code is available.

No.

You need to get a RakNet license if your game uses the online capabilities provided by the RakNet.

Oh, ok, thank you for your quick reply Makslane! OK, so a commercial license is needed to be able to use the raknet network feature. Im not planning on network support yet for my game, since it'll be single player mostly, so i guess the license is not needed. Are there any other components needed to build game-editor that need some sort of commercial arrangement to use commercially?

BTW, thank you again, for your continued contributions to the indie game developer. :)

Game Editor uses PocketHAL to access the screen in the windows mobile devices.
The free version of the PocketHAL shows a little text on the screen, but if you make a donation, the text will be removed.

BTW, The RakNet library have a free license for commercial games too!

Wow will this is a surprise. :)

Will definitely check it out. It's good of you to do this Makslane.

So if I understand correctly then if we bought Game Editor then we do not have to display the Game Editor logo or link to the Game Editor website? So I assume that mentioning you in the credits will be alright?
