Ryan “icculus” Gordon has released a new source code snapshot of his BUILD engine port. BUILD was the engine used for projects such as Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior and the source to it was released by author Ken Silverman about a month ago. As always, keep in mind that this is not an official Loki project; Ryan is doing it in his spare time (don’t bug Loki tech support if it doesn’t work). In this version, all 2d functionality is working, but 3d is still in the works. Changelog entry:
- Another keyboard scancode added by Dan
- Changed 3D mode to prompt to save changes before dropping out of graphics mode; the stdio thing was pretty obnoxious
- Now we are basically waiting on a copy of Watcom C to show up, so I can trace through the original code and verify that I’m getting sane parameters and return values. Needless to say, productivity has dropped off quite a bit.
