Well, I looked at the code for the background, the internal engine creates a copy of the graph of the FPG from use as textures, also applying some transformations, for this the previous example does not work, should I check because they take place these internal transformations and if it is possible to change the engine to have a more direct integration with DIV, currently for example is using more memory than necessary.

Hi... first time here, but long-time DIV, Fenix, and BennuGD coder...

Just to be quick... is there any chance of a Dreamcast port of DIV? I know that the DC isn't exactly a console that anyone really cares much about (aside from homebrew-for-money coders), but it seems that it wouldn't be too terrible of a job to port it over since the DC has a port of SDL already. Such a task is out of my league personally. I do like BennuGD, but the DC port is quite slow, and the Fenix port itself is incredibly buggy.

Just throwing that out there...

Hi Hikaru,

As said before, DIV is open-source now, Dreamcast is not ported at moment, but is one of the possible platforms to be ported.

Hi,

If you want to further advertise DIV, is it worth setting up some accounts on game sites such as
Kongregate, Newgrounds, GameJolt , Itch.io etc...

DIV is a superb game creation product and I would love to see DIV get some attention again.

Any revenue made from the above sites could go towards hosting costs etc...

What do you think?

Create a hybrid DIV/QB64 compiler and you will get more people with interest in QB64. Just look for languages to merge into DIV and contribute to the original compilers' forums with the hint that the users of the forums might want to use the that language+ features of DIV. QB64 has tried to do things in such a way that it appeals to those who want to make closed source programs as much of its library has a BSD/MIT style license.
If you integrate QB64 into your code base. I can frequently mention there that they may want to use DAV instead

Also. I am having trouble finding the repository. You need more links to it on the site.

Also, on your downloads page, you list an "assets" repository, and from there I found the rest, but you should link also/instead to the main repository there.

So, after some weeks. Whats about DIV future? In GitHub, there's nothing and here again. I know that everybody have a reallife with family and work. DIV is our hobby, so we shouldn't forget it. I take a look into the forum, every day, and nothing happens. :(

We lost DIV and the DIV Arena about years. Please, not again!

Hello RKSoft,

Unfortunately, as has already been explained, Mike does not have much time with the new job and the DIV code needs a lot of work to be corrected, modernized, etc... with no time (or lack of time) this is extremely difficult.

But do not worry, these days I'm working on something for DIV, especially in buxfix, you should be able to have a new release next month.

Thanks for reply, CicTec. Its okay for me when we get a new release/version 3-6 month. And i said everbody has a reallife. But, good to know a new release is coming. I think the really bad bugs like oversize RAM need in compiled exe (ex: for windows) is the big one. :)

No problem.

Given the short time available for the development that we have for now, I think the best thing is to initially provide a release of the fully functional current version and free of bugs (or less possible bugs)

I have already fixed several bugs these days, this is top of the list to be corrected, once the reformatting of the code is finished.

As already indicated, we should be able to have a test and new beta release for this month.

i interesting in DIV studio due make support (and seem compiles) in older and in Linux now!

but seems there's no pointing page to instructions, start docs or whatever for new incoming users..

the github repo does not have a wiki place and the readme's inside the source code seems quite olders..

i'm interesting in porting and packagin for older linux and debian due i have many people that makes simple games, and with this now can made more complex and innovative games..

why? due in many countries OpenGL or 3D GPU are not available and so the 80% of gamming life are now cut-down.. but with this environment this can be a solution to that problem!

so then, where i can find more instructions, tecnical docs and infor for páckagin and compiling to linux!
