Happy 10th Anniversary

Post by gerstrong » Sat Dec 29, 2018 9:28

Hard to believe but today it happens. Clonekeenplus was officially started on December 29th of 2008.

Today we are celebrating the 10th Anniversary. :birthday

The bad news are, I have nothing special this time.

The last months really hold me back developing further on this engine.

The good news, well there is a small updated Release for Windows: 2.2.8. If you play CG on Android you can use the Beta program for tests. I have put a special update there which improves the controls a lot. Since SDL2 is used it has many advantages over the old implementation, but maybe some downfalls I'm still ironing out. The controls are more situational and I can say it runs a bit faster, at least on my Nexus phone.

I hope in future we really can rely on SDL2, because the SDL1.2 compatibility really got ugly and Android port is pretty the only one left using it afaik.

The latest Windows version is here as usual: http://clonekeenplus.sourceforge.net/download.php

I does not bring any new features, but it fixes some bugs you guys reported lately and became somewhat faster in loading resources. I cleaned up a lot of code lately and still have some work on that left.

Right now Commander Genius is being ported to Gameshell, special thanks to Joeri and his special effort:

So thanks to all of your support and great feedback over these years.

Happy Anniversary and happy new year to all of you!
Having fun developing stuff...

Whoa, it's been THAT long since Commander Genius started!? :O That's rather neat, though.

Anyway, happy anniversary! :birthday
