Mind me for asking, but 0.3.0.4 isn't in the main page. Is this just an engine update?
Right now you can change gravity globally by changing the configs. In PGE/configs/'YourConfig'/ you can find lvl_characters.ini which includes character physics.
If that works, that's what I've been looking for.
...Seriously though. Where is 0.3.0.4?
I has youtube now...with some activity :D

0.3.0.4 is a version of the Editor, latest version of engine is 0.2.1-alpha. Editor and engine are different applications but uses same config packs and communicating between themeselves

hey Wohlstand, why the engine running weird on my computer?
The player is a 96x96 pixel-square and white. All the NPCs fall down and white too?
BTW, can you make the level warps, properties, and many other boxes sizable in next version? Some is really big and having wasted space...
Anyway thx for the editor. It helps me a lot!

Ahh... The title bar says it's 0.1 alpha. But after I download the main pack (editor with engine). I downloaded the new updated of the engine and put all contents in the PGE folder. I don't know why it is 0.1.

Maybe you missed a ahortcut. Please check carefully (even open with right mouse and "find target") to check out, what thing you actually run

In response to the warp video:
The pipe changes look really good along with the screen fade!
But walking through half of a door looks dumb. I'm not sure if you want to decrease the warp range or what, but I don't like it right now.

Wohlstand said that you'll be able to resize the warps.

... because horizontal insensitive requires than player's center intersects into warp point. Anyway I will require completed intersection of player's width into warp point and player will able to enter into door without dumb aligning. [Both thigs are dumb and I agree: aligning of player when it contacted at side and trying to enter into door; player enters while stay at half of door. I will solve this problem with improvement of horizontal door sensitivity and with adding warp width param to provide configuring of enterable zone]

PGE (Alternate Editor for SMBX) [Editor 0.3.1, Engine 0.2.1]

Postby Wohlstand » Fri Jul 03, 2015 5:52 pm

Editor update 0.3.1!

On last week was made small but important updates of the editor side
Spoiler: show
Image
Updated editor is available by same download links on main post or on the homepage or from online installer!

What's new
Introduced a NPC garbage cleaner!
I think, you know old bug of SMBX Editor where you draw vines or ladders and you see than you have overflown max NPC bank or your level is lags by unknown reasons. [You can watch detail demo of this bug with SMBX 1.3 and with old Box2d based engine 0.0.11-pre-alpha].
I have beee implemented a small tool which will help to clean-up your level from those junk NPC's:
Spoiler: show
Access to this feature in the tools menu:
Image

Report about found junk NPC's (you also can check out: which and where was found junk NPC's)
Image
If you wanna know which condition to mark NPC as junk: is a same NPC-ID with same layer, with same X-Y position, with same direction with same properties, etc. If you have similar NPC's on different layers or with different messages/properties,etc. than NPC's are will not be marked as junk.

Found junk NPC's
Image

Report about removed junk NPC's
Image
Boosted performance
The common work of the editor has been improved for a big maps where you had a slow down of a placing action. Now you can place/drag&drop on a huge maps much faster!
Spoiler: show
Image
Completed support of extra sections per level!
Than means, you have able to have more than 21 sections per level. Don't forget than you should save LVLX file format if you wanna use more than 21 section or you will lose settings of those sections.
Spoiler: show
Image
Bit but useful: 'friendly' flag in the message box editor
I think, this thing will be useful for some people who requested this feature from me. Thanks to cramps-man who finally implemented it!
If you wanna know is your talking NPC friendly or not, you can modify flag directly from a message box dialog!
Spoiler: show
Image
Bit but useful: Multi-selection support for item selection dialog box
This feature works especially for a custom counters editor where you wanna add into counters list multiple items at one run!

Alrighty! I just figured I'd say something. :)

I re-downloaded at the main link. Version 0.2.1 for engine. And still have the same problem.

Please tell me your hardware specs: RAM, VideoRAM, Model of video card, OS, OS Version
Are you have all drivers for your chipset and videocard are installed?
Are you trying to run it under VirtualBox or under VMWare? If yes, try to download Qt Creator and run it at background. Small workaround which makes this working. It's temporary, I'm working to fix this crap and make it working everywhere. OpenGL can work in software mode if video drivers are not installed or your GPU on your video card is not supports technology.

Note: you can get your hardware specs with Win+R key combo and type 'dxdiag'

VirtualBox and VMWare are Virtualization systems. Allows you to run any other operating system separately while you run one system.

I think, maybe you need video card with more video ram or white textures are means than you have overflown video memory and can't load more textures at same time. Try to plug video card with 256 or 512 MB video memory before I will try out to optimize usage of texture buffer for small video memory and system requirement of PGE Engine will be 128 MB of video memory

That is the only "problem" with PGE, due to the fact it actually utilises OpenGL as opposed to software rendering with ActiveX in SMBX, you actually need to have an okay video card/PC. But at the same time, everyone should have a decent PC especially considering it's 2015. The main advantage to this is that you're definitely going to get much better performance out of PGE than SMBX could even DREAM of, albeit at slightly higher hardware costs.

I'd recommend not only a new video card, but definitely some more RAM...I'd even suggest a new computer..budget it out. If you definitely cannot budget it out, I'd say more RAM and video card for certain.

If you're not entirely sure on the RAM your computer supports, check out http://crucial.com. They have a good scanning tool (100% virus free) that'll gather detailed specifications and help you pick out upgrades for your computer.

#ifdef is not needed, because than means you build program under Windows 10, but not means than you actually runs it under various Windows versions: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10.
Since Qt 5.5, it supports Windows 10 too (latest editor/engine are built with Qt 5.4, but I just upgraded my Qt to 5.5)

Code: Select all

and actual detection of Windows 10 will be:
if(QSysInfo::WindowsVersion==0x00c0)
{
/....
