So, after having read up on URL access for a couple of hours, I managed to get about 0% through it, yesterday.

I might actually end up trying to find a proper book on the subject, and having a good focused read-through. .. Although I imagine any book would probably focus on Win/Linux, and not the cross-platform usage I'm after.
I've really coded myself into a pickle, here!

Today I've been working through what will and won't be part of the "Framework".
That is, what values and settings and functions should be "Framework", which should be "Engine" and which should be "The Game".

Yesterday was full of background tasks.
I added a HSV colour function, fiddled with line-thickness, got a vague "plot" working.

Yesterday was full of tweaks.
As I posted here, the Todo list is looking fairly complete, but this is still only the background engine for the new C++ framework.

Spent tonight going through my todolist, checking things off, and generally fixing a few things that aren't quite up to 100% yet.

I posted Benchmark 2 over on Socoder, yesterday.

You can Download the Benchmark here.

I struggled for about an hour with C Strings, or rather Char* strings.
They're a total pain in my backside, so at the start of the project I opted to do something that I thought would be "quite clever"

I probably shouldn't, yet, but I feel that things are at a decent enough point that I can make a start on things.

I still have oodles of things to add to the Engine, like proper load/save functions, and doing online URL requests for the online leaderboards.
And, of course, I've still not got the new engine running on iOS, yet. That definitely needs doing!

OK, a fair number of tweaks in the past few hours (and a nice big nap, too!)
I'm now running Ubuntu32Bit, and have recompiled the Benchmark test with (hopefully!) all the important libraries Statically Linked, thus apparently making for a more compatible ".exe"

You can grab the Benchmark Test here.

If it runs, let me know.
More importantly, if it doesn't, let me know!
Thanks, again, for any and all testing.

Seems the crash in the Linux code was happening when it tried to stream a .wav file, so I had to rejig a whole bunch of stuff to get it working again.
After all of that rejigging, the Benchmark test now runs 100% on Linux, which is nice.

If you'd like to give the benchmark test a try, You can Download the test here as a .tar.gz.

The test has been compiled using GLFW3 and OpenAL, under Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, with the g++ command, because that's all I could currently get it working with!!

You'll no doubt have to set permissions and other gubbins to get the thing to run, but if you're a Linux user, you're probably already an expert at managing that kind of stuff. (I'm certainly not!!)

If you do try it, be sure to let me know if it runs, at all!!!
And if it does run, let me know the results from the debug.txt once it's finished.

Thanks for testing!

The Benchmark thing from the other day starts running well on the Linux setup, but seems to crash after about 2 minutes..

I'd say that's a fairly successful event!

It's still not 100%, mind. If you try to double click it, it tries to open it as if it's an Archive, then fails. Not sure what that's about.
Linux is crazy!!

But, hey, that's working, and it has audio too!
That's a good day's work.

I was supposed to be working on the iOS edition, today, but the MacMini's "Shared Desktop" was being crappy and I couldn't be bothered to sit in front of a desk!!

Tomorrow, perhaps.

ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!ERROR!

This might not look very successful, but the fact that I've managed to get Linux to actually boot, AND attempt to compile the code...
That's definitely an improvement from yesterday!

I have an awful lot of faffing about to do, in order to get things to actually compile, but I'm fairly confident that it'll be doable.
Things are looking up!!

I finally got around to shifting the framework over to the Mac, last night.
Hitting the compile button swiftly planted around about 1,000,000,000 red "WARNING:ERROR!" flags all over the code.

Most folk seem to be giving me successful results with yesterday's benchmark test program.
If you haven't already, Do so here!

If you can, please give this benchmarker a run.

It's a simple little tool.
Unzip it, run the .exe, and watch as three "Bloke" sprites circle around for a little while.
Don't touch anything. The benchmark tool will do it all for you.
Running through a bunch of sprite-pushing tests, blending methods, and audio streaming, too.
It'll also flip to fullscreen to check there, too, so be warned if you're watching any other media on your PC at the time!!!

Once it's done (about a minute and a half) it'll leave a debug.txt file, which you should send my way.
Thanks for testing!

I've been working on basic String functions, since last night.
Left, Right, Mid, Trim, SplitTxt and other generic "Basic-like" functions that I'm going to be relying on because I'm rubbish at doing C-strings.

This seems to be functional as well as can be expected.

An .ogg file is playing in the background. Feel free to replace the ogg with your own ogg, should you have any!

As with the previous audio test, up and down will (*should!) pitch the music up and down, but now it'll glide more smoothly, since the pitch is being handled by the main loop, not the re-buffer part of the code.

Other than that, nothing of note has changed, I don't think.

You can download the Ogg Playing test here.
