Hi,

DizzyAGE is a set of tools used to create Dizzy games in the classic adventure style.
It has been recently released on it\'s official website:
http://www.simion.co.uk/dizzyage

Also, there are two small DizzyAGE games available for download. Enjoy them :)

Thank you!
Alexandru Simion

Wow. Professional Dizzy editor with generator exe files. I need it add to my collection here.
I only bore that this editor is too professional and too hard for simple fan game makers... Even "helloworld" is complex and hard understand for me (but maybe I\'m not programmer and this is not for me  :P )
I have some question.
1. If I want made polish version game where I need look for text? All text in *.gs files?
2. In title window is mark "DizzyAge v1.0" Is this possible change it for eg game title?
3. Game size is not very big but i think that final game version should be without any unused graphics and other resources. How easy deleted all unused resources?

Hello again, and thanks for reply!
About your questions:

1. the editor only generate .map files, not exe files
Those maps are loaded by the engine (dizzy.exe) along with the game scripts (the .gs files). All game data can be packked in a single file (dizzy.pak), when the game is ready.

2. The hello world is "simple" because it only have the hello message call, added into the default template scripts. However, the default template scripts will take some time to understand, but for a beginner level you only have to add a few functions to make a simple game. Check the tutorials for start.
You don\'t have to be a programmer to write a few scripts, you just have to follow some examples.

3. Sorry for language support, only english for now.
I wanted everybody (well... almost) to be able to play and understand the games.
The font characters are mapped from the Data\\Font\\dizzy.tga image. You may be able to edit the image but you can\'t add more characters than cels in the image. Maybe in future versions.

4. Window title can not be changed, but it might be for future versions if really needed.

5. Each game can keep only the graphics (or sounds) that it use. And more tiles can also be added.
The tile files are accessed by the unique numeric id at the begining of the file name (check the docs). You may keep only those you use in the game map.

For now, there is not a direct way to auto remove unused resources, but the editor have scripts too, and a function that check the map and list not used tiles can be added by  advanced users.

I will help and support anyone who wants to create a game with DizzyAGE. Just start with the tutorials and ask me along the way if you\'re getting in troubles.

Good luck!

... and I\'ve forgot, the engine is coded in Visual C++ and
the scritps are to be written in GS9, a free, custom, simple, C-like, .... scripting language :)
GS9 language documentation is included in DizzyAGE manual.

http://www.simion.co.uk/gs9

You can use GS9 in your C/C++ projects too, because I offer it for free and open source - for this you do have to be a programmer :)
