Mike

What happened to the code archives on the old BlitzBasic.com?

Has it migrated over to another spot?

In a nutshell, Blitz3D-NG is an attempt for Blitz3D to breakaway from the DirectX7 legacy curse and enhance visuals with the upgrade to OpenGL and possibly other renderers like DX9 or DX11 (roadmap) using shaders and other modern gpu techniques. More info on repo description. kfprimm (author/maintainer) still plans to retain DX7 though as part of the renderer options.

I had app exe crashes on my last download and build, but I guess I could try this again and provide a clean release for download. The alpha versions (https://github.com/blitz3d-ng/blitz3d-ng/releases) is way too outdated to see most of the changes including new opengl renderer.

Afaik, this project is still experimental and unstable so it is still ideal to roll your own build.

Is there no longer a problem with audio?
I thought in the original Blitz3D there was a license for fmod that can't be included in free re-builds just like that for it's not free, or something changed in that regards?

Direct download link is here:

https://github.com/blitz3d-ng/blitz3d-ng/releases/download/v2.0.0-alpha.002/blitz3d_ng_v200-alpha.002.zip

Last update was months ago so it would be just better if you'll email Kevin (git profile) and probably ask for the latest binaries.

Yes Rick, the opensource version needs fmod licensing which can be obtained from fmod site.

Ok, I just downloaded Blitz3d NG today, and other than the tagline up at top there is no way to tell the difference between this incarnation of B3d and the previous DX7 version.

So, is there any website I can go to to find out if any of the instruction commands have been changed, added, deleted, etc.

How do I access the OpenGL features, or DX9 mode. etc.
Prepare to be assimilated !  Resistance is futile!

I haven't tried Blitz3dNG yet but I'm curious if it behaves well with extensions like Fastlib?

This project does not add new features to how you code with Blitz3d, but attempts to add modern compatibility and the performance enchantments which come with Dx9, 64bit computing, and Opengl rendering.

Wasn't there another project like this that was attempting to extend the functions of Blitz3d? But the main programmer/project lead passed away? :(
