Latest beta: WME 1.10.1 (July 19, 2012)
« on: July 19, 2012, 03:34:27 PM »

Hi muties,

here is a new (maintenance) release of WME. The main change is rewritten saving which should be much faster than before, plus some improvements and fixes. Since the saving is a rather big change I'm marking this release as beta, although I tested many WME games without any problems.

WME 1.10.1 beta installer download (19MB)


(Note: Saved games are NOT compatible with previous WME versions)


Version 1.10.1 (July 19, 2012)
  • Significantly faster saving; idle scripts are not stored in saved game so they can be easily patched.
  • Game.SaveGame() method now has an optional QuickSave parameter which allows saving without displaying the progress indicator.
  • New script attribute Game.MostRecentSaveSlot which returns the number of the most recently used saved game slot (to allow implementing a "Continue" button in the main menu).
  • Talking caption cannot be skipped for a short period of time after it's displayed to prevent accidental skipping of dialog lines.
  • FIX: Framerate drop after certain use of TrueType fonts.
  • FIX: Crash after unloading an actor which is set as Game.InventoryObject.
  • FIX: Crash after using actor3D.SetTexture().
  • FIX: Images ending with capital G were treated as grayscale thumbnails.
  • FIX: Changing scene main layer dimensions at runtime didn't affect scrolling.

"idle scripts are not stored in saved game so they can be easily patched."

So, what scripts exactly are now saved and cannot be patched?

Scripts that are actively doing something (such as game_loop.script running in an infinite loop) or scripts waiting for something (waiting for Sleep() to finish or actor.GoTo() to finish etc.).

Hi Mnemonic!

Good work, file saving really works immediately. Will you publish sources of this build?

After the release of version 2, this version of WME will still be supported?

I apologize for my English

Once WME 2 is released I am going to donate some more money, and I think everyone else should as well. Mnemonic deserves it !

I recently tried using this beta with a project I was working on with WME 1.9.1. My game seemed to run fine, but then I saved a game and then loaded it. After loading the saved game, I clicked on the screen (to make my actor walk) and my game shutdown. It did this 3 times in a row. When I went back to WME 1.9.1, my game ran fine.

I found a crash bug related to TrueType fonts which I believe is what skuttleman was experiencing (could you please confirm your game uses TrueType fonts?).
I will be releasing a new version later.

As for source code, yes I will release it. The truth is I have the entire WME 1.x source tree on BitBucket now but I have a problem with the UI library used by SceneEdit/SpriteEdit. The sources used to be available, now they are not and the license forbids me to redistribute them.
The solution would be to create a separate source code repository that would contain everything BUT the UI library. That would mean you'd be able to compile everything except SceneEdit/SpriteEdit.

All of my fonts are bitmap fonts.
