Monkey X is now real open source.

The mojo2 sub license got finally removed and now someone can distribute changes/enhancements to Monkey X freely.

You can grab the current version on Github here:

Hmm. I have ideas, but I'm not sure Monkey's code base is where I would want to start. I feel like it'd be easier to make a new code base and use the existing native files to build that upon. I have the skill, but I'm not sure I have the patience or even want to. Oh well, no rush.

Hey all,

Nice to see a few people on here at least.

Is the current version on GitHub the same as v87b + whatever changes were made in the other thread?

I don't think that Mark added the stuff that Xaron did.

Yes there are already some fixes in which aren't in Mark's branch and there will be more.

Sorry, I am a bit confused, does it mean monkey-x will never get official support from now on and the codebase is going into OS hands now?

Yes, BRL changed Monkey-X's license to a complete OSS one, uploaded everything to its Guthub space and called it a day. They concentrate on Monkey 2 now. Any fix or enhancement will have to come from its users.

On the github, can you get the installer there also? On the itch.io site there is an older version.

Not that I know off. But right now the Monkey website still works and you can download the last version there. Soon we will provide it at a new location of our fork.
