Taking on the SGDK challenge.
« on: 2008-01-25, 11:46:28 PM »
I was wondering, if you are not planning to work on SGDK (the first one) anymore. And if I ever learn programming language, can I be free to work on SGDK. It'd be a cool challenge! ;D 8)

Everyone is free to work on it.  It's open source.  I suppose your question is whether your work could be incorporated into the version hosted at gamedev.sf.net?  For that, I would have to review what you are doing and see how I feel about it.

Not that way (but it would be challenging), since BlueMonk's main priority would be SGDK2, that would leave SGDK open for modifications and more cool features.

Yep, your a true BLUE psychic! And you'd be the first person I'd show to get any custom SGDK on sf. ;D
PS How do you edit it's code? :-[

You need VB6 to do development on SGDK 1.x.  Sure you can edit the source code in notepad, but I really don't think you want to be developing something you can't compile/test.  There's a reason (many, actually) version 1.x is being left behind.  The VB6 compiler isn't very open-source friendly being non-free and all.
