Nice looking game engine!

I noticed in the Youtube videos that the games run kinda sluggish with sprites/bobs flickering and square collision boxes around them. Is that normal?
Is it because in runs using the redpill player, test mode?

Can you compile the exe and it runs faster?

Thanks.

It runs sluggish because it is on editor test mode, and draws additional stuff to show collision boxes. It should be faster on player. But still slow on winuae 68030 if more than 3/4 bobs running on screen (if not moving then speed is fine), I guess it needs some further optimisation.

Nice to see RedPill getting better and better. Wonder who will be the first to create a full game? Nobody seems to have come quite far with his game

Someone should write a tutorial like the one we have for Backbone. Then we might have seen more games created with RedPill. Wish I had the time...

Hi everyone ! Really happy to hear about RedPill ! I'm really looking forward for it to supersede Backbone. So many people spending months on nice games ruined by this old engine :-)

No tried yet but do you guys get 50 FPS in scrollings ?

Thank you all!

Time for a short update. Next RedPill version is going to be 0.5.0. The reason is because there will be major internal changes in the engine. There changes were needed and planned and justify the change in version number. Don't worry, RedPill will be used the same way as now and I am 99% sure projects from 0.4.x will be compatible with 0.5.0.
0.5.x versions will bring important features like:
-Possibility to have much much bigger levels.
-Less valuable chip memory usage, and less memory used overall.
-Possibility to have more than 10 levels.
-Objects inside objects.
-More game examples, more tutorials, more documentation, etc.
