Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

Hi,

I just stumbled accross this : http://enigma-dev.org/. I saw the development of this a few years ago but it wasn't quite as much advanced as it is right now. It looks pretty good and seems to be running MUCH faster than game maker. I'm not sure if it is stable enough to allow us to develop games yet. Also, I'm worried about the support that the development of this new software will get over the long run...

What about Game Maker 1.2? After this new update with the LLVM update, I do not see the advantage Enigma would have over Game Maker.

What do you guys think?

Re: Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

Personally I have not been able to run anything with it. But I would surely abandon Studio if It worked and supported studio features and outputs. Frankly I'm pretty tired of all the problems I had so far with studio and if this did work I would move on to it in a flash.

Re: Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

For me it worked pretty well, did you try it recently?

Re: Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

In fact, forget what I just said... it is still very unstable...

Re: Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

I've not tried it recently. I have never had any success with it for even the simplest things. As a stepping stone to C++, it might be a good learning tool, presuming the code it generates isn't too terrible. I'll probably give it another shot when I hear about someone using it to make or port something decent.

Yep. I tried it after I read you post. I had just tried to used it before I posted. Nothing I have ran

Re: Enigma, Open-Source compiled development environment.

That's too bad, it looks very promising, but might take a WHILE before it gets stable. And by then, Game Maker will probably take over and offer the same as enigma.
