What works

Installing, creating games, saving, sprite editor, room editor, time line editor, background editor, sound editor, default drag and drop functions.

D3d functions work.

External DLL's work (A direct3d one was tested with a few minimal errors.)

What does not

Text entered into pop up boxes doesn't save.

Text entered into the script boxes doesn't save.

The surfaces are offset upwards.

The built-in external file functions don't work.

Half the time, if not in full screen mode, the game will not update/redraw the view properly. It will draw the first frame part way, then freeze in the same way it freezes during a certain error in Windows, where the drawing stops and the math keeps going.

The auto complete list at the bottom of the code editor is backwards.

Quits when switching from full screen to windowed; fails vice-versa as well.


What was not tested

Many functions (untestable)
Overloading the program

Additional Comments

Strange zbuffer/depth problems with the d3d stuff. May be PC specific though, and definitely fixable.
