The first version of AppGameKit Studio has been release on TGC and Steam. Steam keys are being sent out to those that preordered but may take a while to complete. The main changes from the previous version of AppGameKit, apart from the new IDE, are as follows

- Added Vulkan renderer on Windows
- Improved OpenGL renderering performance on Windows when CPU bound
- Added IsInvertedDepth to return whether the depth buffer is inverted (true for Vulkan)
- Added GetClipSpaceMode to return if the current clip space is -1 to 1 or 0 to 1 (OpenGL and Vulkan respectively)
- Added IsTopLeftOrigin to return if the current renderer uses the top left or bottom left as its framebuffer origin
- Added GetDrawing3DSetupTime to return the amount of seconds spent preparing 3D objects for drawing
- Added additional version of MakeColor with an alpha parameter
- DrawLine DrawBox and DrawEllipse now support alpha blending
- Added shadow smoothing modes 3 and 4 that use 16 samples instead of the 4 samples in modes 1 and 2
- Fixed the app freezing if PlayObjectAnimation was told to loop with the start and end frames set to the same value, or set to values beyond the animation duration
- Currently SetAntialiasMode does not work with Vulkan

The Vulkan renderer is currently only active in the Windows player but we will be working to bring it to the other platforms as soon as possible. If you notice any bugs then please post a forum thread with the details and a small example that replicates the problem if possible.

Someone that already owns RPG World on Steam should try redeeming it since it won't allow two copies on Steam. It could just be a bad reference in the TGC website code

Same here. RPG World, not App Game Studio. Just to be sure, I entered the Serial Key into Steam and it says I already own it.

Thank you

Same here. I already own RPG World, so I tried the key and it does say that I already own it. Definitely the wrong one.

Hi,

Sorry about this. I had an auto script made by TheNext which seems to be sending the wrong keys out. RPG Maker is FREE anyway.

TheNext will be back in 2 hours to sort this all out.

Damn I was right. Vulkan for Windows only with Mac / Linux coming whenever. I knew it!!!

Way to go skipping that bit out of the preorder info TGC. Bit naughty to only let us know at the very end after getting all that preorder cash. Ah well, live and learn not to trust in future until actual release and not believe the preorder blurb.

In future TGC be upfront and not skip these important things just so you can get more cash in. I preordered on the promise of release of the Vulkan engine in July for the advertised Windows and Mac but that ended up being fake advertising.

Vulkan turned out to bit a bit harder to implement than they had first thought, which is why they held back on the other versions.
They wanted to get everything out in a timely fashion, but these things happen in the programming world.

They are working diligently to get to that point and they will deliver, its just going to take a little more time than they/us expected.

@Zuchini,

There was an email that went out about this. Also several posts about it now from TGC. It was a script error, it wasn't just a few people, everyone who ordered the Steam version got sent the wrong keys. They hope to fix it in a few hours.

I've ordered two steam keys and got nothing. I suppose the TGC team is reparing something ?

Hi, the delay is hampered by the fact our web guy has had to deal with a personal emergency. He should be available soon.

In AGKS 1.0, GetDeviceName(), SetRawWritePath(), SetSortCreated(), EnableClearColor(), and many commands can not be used. Is there a list of commands that have been deprecated or removed in AGKS 1.0?

The Example Plugin folder (on Steam at least) only has the "Commands.txt" file. In AppGameKit 2, this folder had a code example, plus AGKLibraryCommands.cpp/.h.

thanks for the v1.0 release of AGK-S. Like it so far. Have an issue though installing additional files, see pics.

tried to install C++ libraries to C:\AGKS, but clicking on install button auto changes the folder to my C:\AGProjects folder. Then the app just froze up and I had to force close the program. Please can this be fixed in next release?

[edit-installing the c++ libs on it's own without installing AppGameKit projects worked fine though-see pic3 ]
[update 26Jul19-now posted issue on Github also]


I will post on github too as soon as possible.
