ENIGMA: An Alternative Compiler for Game Maker

GMNews touted the first release of ENIGMA (the open source project designed to convert Game Maker source files into C++, that is then compiled) earlier this week. I, being drawn to open source software as I am, headed straight for the download page.

I must admit that from the already compiled games in their community, as well as the distribution quality and documentation it looks very impressive; however, I was unable to compile even the simplest game on my Vista machine. I’m not sure if this is a problem specifically with Vista support, or in the program in general.

You can be sure I’ll be trying out the next version of ENIGMA!

    It was a demo release, currently it’s only really stable under XP.
