What happened to the "nuclearglory" basic/engine ?

I would say it died due to it's subpar pricing model (low one time fee, lifetime updates).
Basically, after a while it didn't support Matt anymore so he went off to do other things.
That's my take on it anyway.

I was hoping he would opensource it (I am surely not the only one who would have loved to see it finished up, PBRified, 64bitified and documented. We could have made a community driven project out of it), but oh well.
Luckily, so far it looks like AGK is very similar in terms of performance and the freedom to delve deep into the shader side of things, so it should all be good in the end. :D

..this one looks very complicated..apart from things Gabor said, there are other problems, like, money exchanging hands while product is not delivered...then all went political (thats how it sounded) where author had to leave country?? ..i have lost nice money on that thing, including payed 500$ for some feature which should be integrated and never was....shame really as that tiny engine is fastest thing i have seen up to date..

Yep that was one very fast 3D Engine.  I was gutted when I could see Matthew becoming distant.

Ouch about the loss of money though.

That's why i like Blitz3d, you have an idea, you code as you would think/speak, done ! ( but some others languages are good too in this aspect, fortunately !)

Just something to say, Blitz3D is still alive, I don't know how long it will be, but he's still fighting.

What i find funny, is that the games made using AGK, triggered an error message on some computers, and asked to install something :

Failed to create XAudio2, make sure you have "directx end-user runtime" installed

Whereas, the games made using Blitz3d apparently worked well.

So no it is not dead yet !

its fair to say. from the recent compo entries, it was indeed just a nightmare. Good old BRL released a swish piece of coding genius in Blitz3D that is, for want of a better word, ACE ;)

What i find good but surprising is how Blitz3d programs still works well on modern Windows OS, whereas some coders said that the engine was too old and that it was the end, more than 10years ago !

I guess blitz3D will continue to work fine until they drop 32bit support and who knows how long that will be

I have seen that people are working on windows compatible os'es. React os is one of them I think. Maybe in the future these os'es will keep running b3d and 32 bit.

since apparently 64bits computers / OSs have no problem to run 32bits softwares, not sure why 32bits softwares should not be supported in the future ?...

It will run as long as MS keeps the 32bit sub system in 64bit Windows.
Same as it has a 16bit sub system in Win 10 32bit.

So I guess when Win [whatever the version number] 128bit becomes a reality, they'll phase out 32bit and so on?
