I am sorry to say, but a few weeks ago my youtube account was deleted for no apparant reason, I don't think I will be making another channel but I will slowly carry on with the engine, I said to myself I wouldn't give up no matter what, and I am going to stick to that, if you would like to keep following the project then please if you are a member on indiedb follow this project as I will know that people are still interested.

Thank you.

I'm pretty much a noob to this so forgive me if this is a stupid question, but how do setup Visual C++ up for this engine?

You need to use visual studio, you go into Resource\Lua and write your lua code in main.lua, eventually i may make a toolkit once I hace rewrite the engine

Thanks for the reply! The engine is far from completion but I am working hard rewriting the engine to support OpenGL, not to disapoint you but multiplayer will be a 'mabye if I get time' feature, but thanks for the support anyway!
