This post has a demo, screenshots, and information on the engine, so just go there. Please I'd appreciate feedback, either there or here, doesn't matter. [EDIT: Added thumbnails here.] BTW if you really want a direct download link then edit. I mean, EDIT: Nevermind, direct link removed, because I don't have tons of extra bandwidth for this file so I've limited it to 50 downloads a day, and rather than having the slots filled by anonymous GameDev viewers, I'd prefer it if people would just go to the webpost above and download from there. ~CGameProgrammer( ); DevImg.net - Post screenshots, comment on others.

AFile is not a town compiled world or something along those lines, and then just shows the skybox, can''t move (or doesn''t appear to be moving anyway)

Did you run CreateFileTypes first? It should make City.tcw look like a page with a picture of the Earth on it. Then double-click City and that should work. If it doesn't, run this:

Town.exe -load City.tcw

What's your OS / system specs?
EDIT: Oh, and the 'AFile' thing was a bug, it should have said the filename... Fixed now.

billybob : It is apparently finding the file correctly, but the data must be corrupted if it thinks it's not valid. The first three bytes in the file should be "TCW". Can you open it up in a hex-editor (or whatever) and tell me what the first three bytes actually are? Actually, you don't need to -- just tell me the filesize. It should be about 44.6 MB.

Christian : The initial image should be a blurry black-and-white picture of a city (it's a manipulated screenshot). Is it, or is it noise? Also, can you tell me your display settings and DirectX version? Since the program initially boots up in windowed mode, yout Windows display settings do affect it.

Ibuku: Although I fully plan on using it for a game eventually, I don't know when and I have no idea what type of game. I'm just working on it as an engine right now.

That's exactly what it should be. It must be a file-reading problem. Well I changed file input slightly, but more important it now displays what bytes are read so you can tell me what it says and I'll hopefully know exactly what the problem is.

You can just copy/paste the contents of Compile.log onto here.

The new version has been uploaded. City3DDemo.zip
