About documentation


First, thanks to realease the code of the game and the engine.
I have read that there is no documentation yet for the engine, so i want to know how did you (the developpers of penombra) do to use the engeine? Juste with the code? Hard work without specifications. So you should know very well the code and maybe could give a great help to thepeople who make the doc.

Sorry for my poor english,

RE: About documentation

brendel, do recall that the engine was written for Penumbra Overture.. So in essence anytime we needed some functionality it was written in the engine.. and the Classes and methods of the classes are fairly explanatory. And of course there is always the code of the Penumbra Overture game to show how the engine can be used..

RE: About documentation

Great source code so far by the way. I just thought I'd reply in here rather than starting a new thread. A lot of thought and effort went into the HPL game engine. Haven't gotten it to compile yet but still working on it. Actually that's not true. I did get it (Prenumbra game project) to compile but linking is giving an error.
