Development Diary : The GUI... attempt n+1
I never got too far with my last attempt(s!). All that scripting and window-managing and junk got too bloated and complicated - and I didn't have anything usable other than buttons and tickboxes!

So I started again.

Nine days later, I really am almost finished!

Sorry Paul - there's too much that BlitzBasic/3D doesn't have: full PNG transparency, 2D sprites that do 99% of the work when it comes to optimisation, and lots of small things that are so much better like storing all four colour channels (rgb and alpha) in one integer.

I don't own BlitzMax, but IIRC Max has a GUI module you can buy, although I don't know - once I make my source available, it might be an easy port that doesn't cost $15.

Yup (whoops, forgot to mention!)

Just going to do drop-down boxes and those File/Edit/View/Tools/Help menu doohickeys, and then I'm all set to release it and build a level editor.

It's also skinnable, so it should be really handy for in-game menus and stuff too

Looks quite nice. Yeah, it is quite easy for GUIs to become overly complicated and then end up not getting anywhere. Trust me, its happened to me too!

But for those interested in a free GUI for Blitz3D, I have one called FredGUI (don't ask why its FredGUI, its just a name). You can check it out in the list at www.dannysgames.com/module/index.php It may take a bit of getting used to, and I don't know how well the documentation there is, but you're welcome to ask me questions.

Good job Ben! The screenshots look great, plenty of features.

p.s. I love the bill gates/rich pun
