XL Engine Source Code

Postby luciusDXL » Sat Dec 12, 2015 4:46 pm

Mirrored on the blog

After some thought, I have decided to release the full source code for the XL Engine and game implementations with the Beta build. In order to start this process I have created a Git Hub public repository and have started the process of pushing up the code.

That said, however, there are some surprises in store for the release so I will not be uploading all of the code until the Beta is published. The repository will be incomplete for now but that will be rectified for the release. Also this version of the XL Engine was rebuilt recently and so it does not contain all of the functionality past builds have had. However I am moving over the code and refactoring it to fit in the new engine as I need it but until then you will see holes. No game specific functionality is pushed and the code will not build as-is. Again this will be corrected for the release – this is just getting the ball rolling.

Finally some of the code is currently in a very rough state, this is a work in progress. I will not be taking pull requests at this time and this will be a quickly moving target, any part of the code can be radically restructured at any time. So if you have any ideas, like porting to other platforms, please wait until the Beta release and the repository is complete.

I have not uploaded a license yet, there are still some details to work out.

Not until the Beta release. As stated the repository is still incomplete and things are still being restructured.

However once the Beta release hits I will be happy to look at/accept pull requests, listen to suggestions and of course would like people to help find issues and bugs.

This is Great News!!!!!!

This really is the best decision. Especially for a project like this where you have built this small community, but for years now we have felt like we haven't been able to help out.
