Using AGK Studio with Linux
« on: May 14, 2021, 08:44:42 »
Good morning . When I use AGK studio with Linux the #renderer "Prefer Best" and "Advanced" do not work and the program will not run . Yes it will work ok with "Basic" which is good however I thought It would work using Vulkan . It's no deal breaker just thought I would put it out there.

Maybe invest some time to talk to the producers of AGK ... aka raising an issue there.
They then surely ask for driver stuff as it might be some driver bug (your gpu not properly supported by the driver - or you use the nouveau driver instead of the binary blob or ...). But it is their task to fix stuff if they did odd stuff in their shaders or so.


bye

Thanks Ron just been on their community and highlighted the problem there . I wouldn't mind but prefer best should work in this situation but it does not.

Less than 24 hours after deciding to release on Linux I sold a copy of one of my games on it. Good luck I suppose. It only takes a couple of minutes to produce from a windows version and there is only one  minor code change which is "Prefer Best" to "Basic". I have now sold a grand total of 3 games for a $ a piece. $3 in 3 years. Oh well had a good time though and know a lot more than when I started . I'm still learning new stuff and am still no expert but I'm getting there . I read somewhere it takes about 420 hours to learn a computer language from scratch and I guess it would with the right training .So if you do a day job and spend an hour a night learning to program you are looking at at least a year to really get going . It would help a lot if you had experience of another language first though. I had a bit of experience when I bought AGK Classic and have come on a lot since then . Previous to that I had written one game on the BBC micro and one on STOS Atari ste and one in Blitz3D  on the PC just before I bought AGK Classic . I guess I kind of knew what I was undertaking but didn't really know much .  Never tried any 3d stuff until a couple of years ago and one of those years I took off after frying my poor brain with Pure Basic (never again).

I’d stick With #BASIC for now as OpenGL is a lot more mature right across the board over Vulkan, or AGK’s Vulkan.

The advertised speed increase with Vulkan hasn’t happened for me on 3 different Mac’s or native Windows 10. Some have said it’s faster and others find it slower. So for me I’m forcing OpenGL as I know it works.

Good stuff! I've also compiled on Linux (within virtual machines only) a few years back now - with BMax.... It's been a while for moi since in Linux land.

Although, saying that had a virtual server running about a year ago for a cisco course I nearly finished (missed the course deadline by a week - nothing new there!!)

Yes I think it's a good idea to produce for Linux as well for the sake of a few minutes extra work . Also doing Android which is not too bad either probably takes a few hours to convert . Yes maybe stick to "Basic" for now but I thought Linux was to have Vulkan support . I've removed AGK Classic from my computer now but did some tests using Classic and Studio and studio was a fair bit faster .

When I first bought my ZX81 I remember the other computer in the shop was a vic-20  . I paid 50 quid for my ZX81 which was a lot of money for a 14 year old back then . I worked all the summer and while I was on a break looked in a magazine and there it was an ad for the zx . I knew I had to get one . Loved it . The vic-20 was way more money and out of my reach but was happy with my purchase .
