Hello,

I dabbled a bit with TNT Basic when it first came out, and I liked it because it was simple and straightforward, started making some things but never finished anything.

I've now started working on my own game focused Basic IDE, and I would like if you checked it out and told me what you think.

You can download it here:
http://basic.alienartifactsw.com/downloads

It probably requires Mac OS X 10.4, I am not 100 :P
It is a Universal Binary (and produces Universal Binaries).

Warm regards

It doesn't have that many built in tools as TNT Basic(and never will, I am more planning on making sample projects that are map editors etc) and it doesn't that many features yet and the documentation is very lacking but don't be afraid to ask me any questions.

Hi Rasmus...

WOW! I mean really, WOW! I'm impressed... Some nice interface ideas there. I'm currently the sole developer of TNT2, so I know how hard this kind of thing is to put together. It's looking really good. I bookmarked the site and will keep an eye on your progress, and if you get stuck on anything then please feel free to drop me a line.

Nice work...

Impressed too! However... could you post a really small example program so I can see it in action?

Well, I had a lot of time to work on it this weekend, and also, I am putting out every small release I do mainly because I have a friend who is checking it out for a project he is planning to do and since I then do have to upload it somewhere I figured I just as well put it up.

Thanks for the positive feedback :)

Could someone tell me if they are having issues when running on a PPC system?

Thanks for the info.

I've posted a new build, both of DeorumBasic and BadInvaders. Could someone with a PPC machine please try them out?

Tim,

Could you check if BadInvaders logs anything to the Console?

I would suspect that while it starts, it is not able to call certain functions.

I think I now the solution to the problems, but I am at work and cannot fix it... I think I am starting to feel sick, I have to go home ;P

It works for me in Rosetta, so hopefully all the issues should be sorted.

Thanks for all the help by the way.

The actual IDE seems to work fine PPC OS 10.4.10
It evens builds OK

BUT

With bad invaders I crash just after the blank black-filled Game window is created..... This happens from the already built app AND when I build the app on my machine...

I have emailed you the crash log

cheers
