Everything worked great for me.

PROTIP: Install to some other directory besides Program Files in vista/7, then you won't have any permissions or UAC issues.

Is this offer still good? I get errors when trying to order. I've tried two credit cards and both are good cards but the system rejected the order.

Thanks in advance for any info on this.

Recently (1 year + -) some credit cards have made some restrictions for the Internet transactions and need a second key or password to work (not the security code).

May be in your bank can give you more information if it's the problem...

I don't think that's the problem because I bought the FPS Creator three days ago using one of the cards that I tried to ude to buy the Dark Bonanza.

EDIT

Well I now bought this giant pack for $50.

I can't really tell if I'm gonna get it in a box, or as a digital download.

Was charged for shipping while in the US.

I buyed the Dark Game Studio Bonanza yesterday and dowloaded all what possible. That's all except DarkGAME Studio itself.
TreeMagic and PlantLife alone was it worth. Now I have much more .

But what is the Studio, I thought this was all the programms together ?
And the GDK was not in the download.

1. I have the question who 3 others has before, but never answered.
Is this the commercial Verion of the GDK and DBPro ?

2. Can I install all the programms without the Boxed-Version of DarkGAME Studio ? Or must I wait until the box is coming (I hate that volcano now
)
3. I have the free Version installed yesterday, must I uninstall before ?

I downloaded this:
Cartography Shop 2 Files
Dark AI 2 Files DBPro and GDK Version.
Dark Lights 2 Files DBPro and GDK Version.
Dark Physics 5 Files DBPro and GDK Version and Updates.
Dark Shader 4 files DBPro and GDK Version and Updates.
DarkBASIC Elec. 1 file
DarkBASIC Pro. 2 files one is 3d clothes and particles.
Dark Matter 1 1 File
DarkVOICES 1 File
eXtends 1 File
Plant Life 5 Files includes 4 Modules.
Treemagik G3 2 Files, includes Insta Trees.

You should get serials via e-mail for things like DBPro. That's what I got, and a couple other serials for stuff I haven't looked at / installed yet.

It really would have been nice to see DarkDATA included in the GameStudio bundle, perhaps in the future? It seems like the kind of feature that should be in a "Studio" development type kit.. As without it the only options are trying to get comfortable with the more involved ways of saving/loading data with files (which I personally hate so will probably end up buying DarkDATA).

Also one thing I noticed.. even though I downloaded the .74 update, my installed version still says "Dark Basic Professional - Version 1.054" is there any way to verify what my version is for sure?

I'm assuming the much talked about "better" editor is with the DarkGameStudio that's coming in the mail though.. So I'll have to wait and compare that one to codesurge I suppose..

Yes, I would like to know also if the Dark Studio package contains a commercial license for DarkGDK, as it would make a huge difference in my decision of buying it

I doubt it, the liscence is $500, they're not going to throw that in with a $50 bundle.

$500? I think you messed it up with something else, 'cause on the website it says $30 for the commercial license.
I guess the commercial license is included, because for the FPS Creator it is explicit mentioned that it is only the free version and for DGDK it isn't.

I think it's fully licenced as the free versions are downloadable, but i don't know for sure,i ordered it at the 8th of april and I am still waiting for my box to arive.(england > holland, you would think it would have been delivered by now)
I expect that in the box they explain about the licences.

They don't that I can tell.

I got mine Today (in the states.. and I ordered just shy of a week ago).

It's just a DVD ROM with an install menu, etc. Unless they've hidden some license junk in install menus no one reads, or on the DVD somewhere. The little booklet that comes with it just outlines the programs on the DVD and what they're used for. FPSC doesn't even get its own section in the booklet (along with some other stuff IT hink) just a brief mention on the contents list.

I am guessing its fully functional, etc.. You just don't have the right sell your games until your purchase a commercial license, or something like that.

I'm assuming DarkDGK is fully functional as well, all they say you need is the free install of VisualC++ Express.. But isn't that time-limited or crippled in some other way? I can't see MS giving a compiler out for free without gimping it some way.

Well that makes me a little happier now I know to be legal I need a license but at least the software is it my disposal. Does anyone know if FPS creator can be edited/modified using dark basic pro?

The dvd contains dark game studio and that's it. The rest is in a download

Hi,
I'm also interested in buying DarkGame Studio Bonanza, because we'll need it for a project.

Since now, we've only been working with the free version of DarkGDK and we know, that we'll have to buy the DarkGDK License before we can sell our game.

So my question is:
Is the commercial license for DarkGDK included in the DarkGame Studio Bonanza?
Or does the DarkGDK in the list just mean, that I can download the free version, I already have?

Regards

Bought it, installed it, love it. Used QBASIC a loooong time ago, and the learning curve is about the same as back then. I see myself using this a LOT. Thanks for selling it!

(bought FPSC too, gonna see how they work together)

How much does this normally cost? I got in a car accident that kept me out of work for 2 months, and I just barely got back to work yesterday.
With my luck, I'll miss this deal and won't be able to afford it on top of my ridiculous medical bills. :/
