New PGE release + update! (Editor 0.3.1.13, Engine 0.3-alpha)

Greetings hoomans!

Here's a quick rundown of some (hopefully exciting!) news from the PGE devs for y'all.


We're releasing new versions of the Engine, Editor and other tools. These include small feature additions and numerous bugfixes for known bugs and crashes. This update also adds improved support for 38A level files and read-only support for 38A-formatted world maps.
PGE also finally has 64-bit assembly support for Windows (previously 64-bit support only went as far as Linux and macOS).

We're rebranding! The project you've known till now as the PGE Project will now be rebranding itself as the "Moondust" Project. For anyone feelin' out of the loop: For a while now, our devs have had the intention to have a project name that not only felt easier to remember, but something that had a more unique distinctive brand to reflect the project.

We think we've succeeded in figuring that out, and I'd like to thank everyone who participated in voting and/or provided feedback!

We're beginning a rather massive reorganization of the editor. 
Yess it's true! The Editor is set to recieve a major overhaul and will be completely rewritten. Don't ring those alarm bells yet though! The existing editor will still be supported fully till we can get its replacement complete and up and running.

All downloads have been updated

 

 



 Editor changelog 0.3.1.12

  • All frame delay values in all INI files have been renamed from "framespeed" and "frame-speed" into "frame-delay". Old values have been kept as aliases. The "framespeed" alias now has units in 1/65 seconds (to match with SMBX 1.3), while others have units in milliseconds.
