Wow, I had no idea you can have two different languages in one text box, that's something I wished SMBX could have...

Hello everybody!

I with Kevsoft are had a big work over engine, and now we are have completely new physics to replace Box2d which doesn't fits into platform game-play. New physics provides almost same SMBX physics (values of accelerations and speeds are gotten from SMBX through bunch of a tricks with LunaLUA). With a new physical engine game works faster in 3-4 times faster than was in Box2d. Also new version is going with lua subsystem which provides powerful customization of everything: basic atmosphere, print misc. texts or some debug information, and later will be used to implement NPC algorithms and game-play events required to game work.

This is an experimental version of engine with a new physics which can be used for a preview and tests reasons. You can use it to test any levels or episodes or check out for a new physics system before engine will have finished work with a physics and I will do a creation of NPC Algorithms and layers/events system to have completed implementation of SMBX64 standard gameplay which giving full support of SMBX-based levels, episodes and games.

Important notes! (Read it before use new engine!)
Spoiler
  • New physics are incompatible with old settings defined in the lvl_characters.ini, engine.ini, sound_roles.ini files and characters, script subfolders inside each config pack. Therefore you should overwrite them with files presented in the configs/SMBX folder inside patch archive. If you will try to play game with old settings, character will run super-faster than sonic and will have Giga-jumps and you will fly into outer space .... without suit.
  • There is no slopes yet. All blocks are rectangle. If you can't pass some holes because must be slope, use tail with "alt-run" key to destroy unnecessary blocks (up+altrun and down+altrun to destroy blocks at top or at bottom of the character)
  • All NPC's which are has gravity are will fall down through all blocks. However you can contact with them: coins, power-ups, exits are takable, and contact with some bosses will cause exit from level (while their algorithms are not implemented, you can exit from level to contact with boss instead defeating of them). And you have able to kill than NPC's with a tail.
  • Use 7, 8, 9, 0 number keys to toggle character. 7 - small Peach, 8 - Raccoon peach, 9 - small Mario, 0 - Raccoon Mario
  • If you can't climb on vines (before some things are not implemented), you can fly-up with Alt-jump key which provides unlimited flying up
  • Temporary contact with lava blocks no more kill player.
  • In two-players mode players can't communicate between theme selves unlike previous version of engine. Than is temporary before works with collisions will not be finished.
  • To start using new engine, you should have pre-installed latest PGE (latest version of editor from laboratory is 0.3.0.2) and use special patch to update engine and some INI-files to take experimental engine working (you must have installed "SMBX 1.3 compatible" config pack before updating of engine!). Before physics and lvl_npc.ini file will not be completed, new version of engine has published separately just for preview. When main bunch of works will be finished, new engine will be completely available from laboratory and you can use it for any testing purposes.
  • Layers and events still not implemented yet. Therefore all items of all layers will be shown on the screen. Use tail-whipping with alt-run key to destroy junk blocks and alt-jump key to fly-up if you can't pass some pit because NPC's are not collidable.
  • More written in the Engine.Readme.txt file presented in the archive with patch.

Download & Install update
Spoiler
First of all you should have a latest PGE version gotten via online installer which you can get here:
http://download.gna.org/pgewohlstand/dev/win32/pge-online-downloader.exe

After upgrading of your PGE, download this archive and replace contents which you have in "%ProgramFiles%\PGE" folder to take usage of new engine (It contains also updated calibrator and bit updated editor where is a WIP garbage cleaner which removes all junk vines which are was flooded with buggy SMBX. It will count them only but actually is not removes them yet.)
http://download.gna.org/pgewohlstand/dev/win32/pge-engine-0.1-alpha-dev-patch-win32.7z
Note: New engine uses incompatible config settings, and you should use updated ini files from "<pge-engine-0.1-alpha-dev-patch-win32.7z>/configs/SMBX/" in your config pack ("SMBX 1.3 Compatible", "Raocow Talkhaus", "SMBX Redrawn" or [NOT RECOMMENDED!]"SMBX Integration").

Wow. I just played it and I have to say that this really is an almost 1:1 replica of smbx's controls. You did really well with this and now I'm even more excited about PGE's future!

I don't have time to test this right now, but holy moley, you guys are doing your best to make this engine better and better. Once I'll have a chance I will play-test this.

Also I wonder why that airship screw BGO goes behind the NPCs, but at the same time it's in front of other blocks - thet's really interesting :shout:

- Added config pack version notifier (if you have old config pack is old, you will be notified about)
- Better design of development console box
- Fixed a crash which possible if you pressing F5 keys too often.

Engine Changelog 0.2-alpha

READ THIS. Important info about PGE Engine
Spoiler
While you play games with PGE Engine, don't forget about controls:
Image

Note about regular keys:
JUMP Regular jumping, always use it instead of alt-jump because "alt-jump" is NOT works right
ALT-JUMP temporary is an unlimited flying up! Use it to get unbeatable heights!
ALT-RUN temporary is a cheating weapon to destroy anybody arroud your characher

==============================================
More detail list of controlls:
==============================================
Arrows:

I want to say personally I am 100% on board with this project and if I ever win the lottery right after paying my debts I will send you $2000.00 USD. Thank you so much for taking on such a task of this magnitude! I have a question why does my 360 Rock Candy Controller No Longer Work with your engine though? I very much dislike keyboard controls.

Editor update 0.3.1!

On last week was made small but important updates of the editor side
Spoiler
Image
Updated editor is available by same download links on main post or on the homepage or from online installer!

What's new
Introduced a NPC garbage cleaner!
I think, you know old bug of SMBX Editor where you draw vines or ladders and you see than you have overflown max NPC bank or your level is lags by unknown reasons. [You can watch detail demo of this bug with SMBX 1.3 and with old Box2d based engine 0.0.11-pre-alpha].
I have beee implemented a small tool which will help to clean-up your level from those junk NPC's:
Spoiler
Access to this feature in the tools menu:
Image

Report about found junk NPC's (you also can check out: which and where was found junk NPC's)
Image
If you wanna know which condition to mark NPC as junk: is a same NPC-ID with same layer, with same X-Y position, with same direction with same properties, etc. If you have similar NPC's on different layers or with different messages/properties,etc. than NPC's are will not be marked as junk.

Found junk NPC's
Image

Report about removed junk NPC's
Image

Boosted performance
The common work of the editor has been improved for a big maps where you had a slow down of a placing action. Now you can place/drag&drop on a huge maps much faster!
Spoiler
Image

Completed support of extra sections per level!
Than means, you have able to have more than 21 sections per level. Don't forget than you should save LVLX file format if you wanna use more than 21 section or you will lose settings of those sections.
Spoiler
Image

Bit but useful: 'friendly' flag in the message box editor
I think, this thing will be useful for some people who requested this feature from me. Thanks to cramps-man who finally implemented it!
If you wanna know is your talking NPC friendly or not, you can modify flag directly from a message box dialog!
Spoiler
Image

Bit but useful: Multi-selection support for item selection dialog box
This feature works especially for a custom counters editor where you wanna add into counters list multiple items at one run!
Spoiler
Image

Added after 7 minutes 55 seconds:

I saw a small grammar glitch...

"Are you want to remove..."

As far as I know, it should be "Do you want to remove..."
Do you want fries with that?

New experimental update of the engine part - 0.2.3.0!

- Now it's not a child toy, real live! that means, playable character will get hurt (each level you have 3 HP, with no repair yet) when it contacts with dangerous surfaces or enemies, and no more can whip everything. However I'v made debug sub-system where you able to press "~" key and type a special command - cheat code. You will be able to: fly up, whip evrything, to be a god! (P.S> don't worry if player will get hurt from wrong side of horizontal SMB3-spikes, that mine mistake in a config file which I will apply globally later)
- NPC's are talkable now, so, "talk" event is working.
- Experimental support of slopes! Player now able walk on slopes correctly, BUT how I warned, it's experimental: player can't slide on them, to jump player should be faced slope-up or be idle while faced to slope-down.
- Engine has controllable VSync! If you has a good video, you will have smooth and fast animation. If you has no installed drivers or you are has bad video card, you will be able to play games/levels on PGE Engine without VSync, but you need to configure "time of tick" yourself to get best view/performance for your screen! Note: if VSync is enabled, time of tick calculating automatically from your actulal monitor refresh rate. If you wanna faster screen, feel free to open control panel and change frequency of your monitor to maximal available rate. (most popular 60 hz but modern monitors are able to have 75 or even 80 hz and faster!).

Changelog 0.2.3.0
Spoiler
- Text Input dialog box has been completely implemented
- Cheating features are been moved into cheat environment and can be used only after typing of special commands by "~" key clicking
- Playable character can be harmed by dangerouse surfaces and will die in lava
- Experimental support of slopes
- Player can talk with NPC's
- better work of collisions, but some things are still experimental
- better V-Sync control

Also the configuration packages are has some updates:
- All Piranha plants now are has 16x16 grid size unlike SMBX where most of piranha plants are had 32x32 grid size!
- Working SMB1-elevators!
- A2XT config pack has got update of music and some graphics stuff since SAJewers's update of dev-kit!

Editor's version is same, but it has minor updates:
- in the Image Export dialogs has been added "2x", "1x" and "0.5x" auto-size buttons which will help you to quickly use 1/2 of screenshot size or make wide screenshot of a small area, etc.
- Level editor has context menu in the empty area! So, you can press right mouse button in the empty space and you will be able to quickly open section settings box or level properties box too. If you has a with, I will proxy most of level editing menus to this context menu to make usage of them more convenient
- Fixed a bug of the LVLX writer which causes losing of "onActivated" event trigger field value on file saving

All download links on the main post or on the mainpage are has updated PGE components!
You also can use online installer to retrieve all PGE components in one run (PGE core and config packs)

New Update Is available!
PGE Editor 0.3.1.7 and PGE Engine 0.2.3.1-alpha
This update has updates of a core and some bug-fixes.
P.S. Sorry for a too late update, I was very busy on my job, but now I have more time to work with development of PGE hard.

Next update is going to take a big code optimization to resolve existing issues with configuration packs data management in total. With this optimization also will be added a custom configs support like block-*.txt, background-*.txt, tile-*.txt, scenery-*.txt, path-*.txt, level-*.txt, and effect-*.txt, but unlike NPC.txt there are will use INI syntax and will use same specification as global configuration package, but unlike global configuration, each of those configs will have definition of alone element with replacing settings like to npc.txt.

Both Editor and Engine changelog
Spoiler
- Small update of File Library: increased performance and code organizing. Available to build STL version to use PGE File Library with any other C++ applications without using of Qt.
- Support for "health" tag inside npc-*.txt custom configs
- Added support of emulated FM Synth MIDI playback based on ADLMIDI. Also added support of loopStart/loopEnd tags in MIDI files
- Added support of game musics formats
- Updated application icon (New 32x32 and 48x48 versions made by Orakel)
- Added independent to config pack support of PNG CGFX together with masked GIFs format. Now allowed to mix vanilia and modern CGFX compiled sprites together independent to configuration package request.

Editor changelog 0.3.1.7
Spoiler
- Fixed serious bug causes crash on attempt to place something after removing with enabled collisions.
- Added experimental support of background2-.txt custom configs (currently works with Editor only, engine still don't work with it) which allows to reconfigure animation, image filenames or settings for custom backgrounds. Note: unlike npc-.txt, background2-*.txt uses INI-file syntax and requires a header "[background2-x]" at top of file. Instead of X put a number of background.
- Fixed bug with locked event entry after undeletion

Engine changelog 0.2.3.1
Spoiler
- Better (but not ideal) support of slopes, and NPC's are supports slopes too
- Experimental auto-toggling of player state from 2 to 1 if left health is smaller than 2.

More detail description and screenshots are here

All download links on the main post or on the mainpage are has updated PGE components!
You also can use online installer to retrieve all PGE components in one run (PGE core and config packs)

EDIT: I totally forgot about background2-*.txt example and info:

Here is a small example and you can try to open that level in the updated PGE Editor:

Anyway, if you would to do some experiments with custom background configs, I have a specification of this thing:
http://wohlsoft.ru/pgewiki/Game_Configuration_Pack_References#lvl_bkgrd.ini
* You will need "[ background2-*]" section where you need replace "*" with actual BackgroundID which you reconfiguring.
