Makslane Rodrigues finally released the source for his game programming tool, Game Editor.
This is well overdue. Makslane himself has admitted that Game Editor wasn’t lucrative enough and he had to go get a job somewhere else. Once employed, he didn’t have enough time to make game editor into the tool the user base was requiring. Many people, including myself, expressed their frustration with the lack of support and regular release updates.
Here is the Game Editor source release announcement.
Two years ago, I would have been excited to get in and work on the code myself. Times have changed and I don’t program in C++ much anymore. I’m not sure the current user base can support the product, either. There is a lot of difficulty in the forums with the C-like scripting required by game editor itself. Many of the best programmers from the community have disappeared. Perhaps this announcement will be attractive enough to bring them back.
We’ll just have to see how this plays out.
