Hi guys,

Old Blitzmax forum user and still Blitzmax user (Jewel Match games)...
I finally found (I hope) a new home here. I would like to check NG a bit further but I'm not very used to the compilation stuff, is there is a recent link on a already builded NG version for PC, more recent than the one here http://www.bmx-ng.com/main/downloads/ ?

Hey Pingus, try downloading the latest release on the official github repo:

Ok thanks it works quite nicely. I was able to compile an old game for 64 bits, fun !

Of course when it comes to compiling for Android thats another issue, but that should go in another topic.

I'm not going to give up on blitzmax. I'm too in to it! It's a wonderful language. Although it does things differently to blitz 2d which I used to use, I'm used to it now. I hope Brucie doesn't give up on it either.

I wish that too, even though I have plan B which is AGK.
I am aware that BlitzMax is superior in the sense it is more general purpose language but you have to be ready with more than one weapon.

I think multi-platform-ism has killed BlitzMax. I wish BlitzMax was for Windows 64-bit only.

An interesting perspective.

I do not agree!
On contrary, it is what keeps it alive right now.

Download link for NG take me to a blanks page.

Dabz set that site up (bmx-ng.com) so I guess he's not renewing his domain name.

New Bmx users should get the latest official Bmx NG release (currently 0.87) instead of Dabz's older 0.77 version.

Good, thanks, I download it.

I did, and for the most part, I was going to keep it going, but I had a few domains kicking around and decided to let a lot of them go, including bmx-ng.com, there was really very little traffic on there, like, next to none, and thought it wouldnt be missed...

Obviously I was wrong!  :-[

Well it was a useful site and served it's purpose I'm sure for many people, so thank you Mr. Dabz! I found the 0.77 windows release useful, at a time when NG often had bugs, I also had fun using the Android tutorial to build firepaint successfully. I backed them up to the tutorials board btw.

Just wondering if that issue with NG apps not being allowed to run on Samsung phones was ever fixed?
