A new *alpha* build of the AmiDARK Engine was uploaded today onto www.os4depot.net.
It is actually in the "upload" queue but it should soonly be available here : http://www.os4depot.net/index.php?fun ... anguage/amidarkengine.lha


The main improvement in this build is the arrival of the *Sprites* functions in the engine. Actually, no optimisation were done so, I hope to improve the system for a future relase.

Hi @ freddix
Thanks for the tease!
How soon can I start programming something, or is that long way off yet?

@Nubechecorre :
The forums is up.
I will prepare a private *beta tester* version for this week-end.
With a different limitation (less annoying than only 5 min runs :p )

@Snuffy :
All will depend on what you want to do.
Technically, 99% of commands available should work correctly but many important features are not yet available ( 2D/3D collisions, sprites/3DObjects animations for examples, sound).
So you can start learn the principles but you will be limited on what you can develop with the actual version.

Kindest Regards,
AmiDARK
