Model Editor: In order for the model editor to work, in the settings, the author needs to select the GLX driver appropriate for his or her computer. Thus, while testing it myself, I noticed that the 3D was not shaded, but was able to fix it as said.
Experienced users with 3DGS know that using the wrong GLX driver, will even crash a Windows configuration.
Missing EXE file: When publishing a game, care must be given, only to redistribute the public version of the game engine. The paid-for version, under GStudio\bin, would allow recipients to create their own games and violates the copyright agreement. A wrong choice causes the Level Editor to refuse, by excluding the EXE file. The correct choice puts an EXE file successfully, which has been packed with a signature only to run the one game published.
Note: I'm only sure that the 3DGS version A6.40.5, which I'm basing this on, allows this decision, not that the earlier version 6.30... allows this.
What does not
What was not tested
Detailed use, accustomed to under an earlier Windows XP computer.
Based on 3DGS version A6.40.5 -------- 3DGS installation. by Dirk Mittler on Monday October 27th 2008, 22:48 I dimly seem to recall, that I had let 3DGS think it was running under Windows 98, just so that it would offer to install its Active Accessibility, if that is the name of the add-on. Real Windows XP already has it installed, but at the time, Wine did not. But, one reason I can afford to do this, is the fact that I have more than one WINEPREFIX. I have one, just for 3DGS.
