I tried to get used to using ZGE through FL, but didn't manage.
I can understand this. Do you have any other option to run ZGE?

ZGE designer tool uses the VCL library that is Windows specific and that makes it hard to port to Mac.

Re: ZGE & Mac M1

Nice! I think you can test with "if(MACOS)" to make code run differently on Mac. Indeed I expect it will crash if you try calling Windows specific functions.

Re: ZGameEditor version 5.0

Because someone emailed and asked about it: here is an updated build of the screensaver engine that works with latest ZGE.

Re: ZGE & Mac M1

There is a way to develop on Mac if you can manage to edit the zgeproj file directly with a text editor. 1. Install demo version of FL Studio: https://www.image-line.com/fl-studio-download/ 2. Put your zgeproj file in this folder /Applications/FL Studio 20.app/Contents/Resources/FL/Plugins/Fruity/Ef...

There is also Parallells: https://9to5mac.com/2021/05/03/the-super-easy-guide-for-installing-windows-on-m1-macs-using-parallels-desktop-16-for-mac-video/ I hope you find a solution that works for you. It would be a shame if this becomes a hurdle for further development. Your ZGE projects look fantas...

That'd be fantastic!
I forgot to be specific: it is just the possibility to generate M1 files that works. Zge itself (the authoring tool) still needs to run on Windows. Perhaps you can run Windows in a VM like VirtualBox.

Re: ZGE & Mac M1

Hi, During the last year I've been involved in the process of making FL Studio running natively on M1 and this includes ZGE. So ZGE works fine on M1. Using Intel Mac binaries with Rosetta on M1 also works very well. The only reason I don't include Mac binaries in recent ZGE releases is that I don't ...

Aha, please change those lines to GL_FRAMEBUFFER_EXT and GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0_EXT.

Re: Bitmap composed of Noise + Expression crashes on Android

Kjell reminded me that this is GL ES 2. I've tried to make changes here to fix it. Please try this version of ZBitmap.

Re: Bitmap composed of Noise + Expression crashes on Android

Right, we need some good old printf-debugging. Please re-enable the call to GLESPixelsFromTexture. Then: 1. Add "ZPlatform" to the uses list in ZBitmap 2. Find the GLESPixelsFromTexture function at line 101 in ZBitmap.pas 3. Add "Platform_Error" calls after each line inside GLESPixelsFromTexture. Pl...

Re: Bitmap composed of Noise + Expression crashes on Android

The log still doesn't give anything useful, sadly.

But lets try to figure out where the problem could be.

Please try comment out line 169 in ZBitmap (the call to GLESPixelsFromTexture) and then rebuild Android binary.

Re: Bitmap composed of Noise + Expression crashes on Android

I think that log is filtered somehow. It should at least show some kind of info from the Android OS when it crashes. Can you check the log filter settings? I don't remember the details but I think there is some start up parameter to filter the output.

Re: Bitmap composed of Noise + Expression crashes on Android

Have you rebuilt the Android binary recently? Please check that it is built from the latest ZGE sources.

Do you get any crash log?

Re: Windows 11

I see. I wish there would be a generic OpenGL driver that translates calls to DirectX or Metal. The ANGLE project is interesting but only supports GLES. I would like full desktop OpenGL 1.0 to 3.0 functionality available everywhere.
