Hi all, I know some of you have experience with the Torque Game Engine (TGE) and I would like to ask a few questions. I downloaded two windows demo's of the product, but: - they both started with a dosbox screen first. Is it always like that or can it be different, as it looks unprofessional for a windows game (imo) - I had no sound! Though it lsited the openAL drivers, they didn't work. Can you tell me about the sound? - What is your overall impression / experience with it? Anywayz, I'm just a little tired of programming my own engine, I wanna create something using someone elses engine (not restricted to opensource linsences). This would be a good choice right?

1) Yes you can remove the console afaik.
2) Not sure about your sound problems, might get better help on the garage games public forums?
3) Torque is extreamly good value for money. Have a play with the demo a little, you have access to the full scripting capabilites of TGE as well as the mission editor. The only thing the demo doesn't allow you to do is modify the engine. You can a lot in script alone that its worth spending some time experimenting.

Once you reach a point where you want to do an engine change or just have access to the private forums and resources, then its time to spend the $100 which imo its more than worth :)

Hmm, the demo I found was more of a showcase what the engine can do, not the actual dev.tools.

tnx =D

Many of the tools are part of the engine--next time you're in one of the demos press F11 (IIRC).

You can do whatever you want as far as modifying what the user can access when you purchase the engine as you have the entire source code. Its very easy to disable the mission editor. TGE is awesome value for money. You could pretty much build a game entirely in script if you wanted to.

I'm not sure why you are having trouble with sound, maybe try updating your sound drivers.

I found that I do have sound, but some sounds are just very faint. I have asked about it on the official GG forums.

But about the editors... Do you have to use the editors in the actual game you are making to create the content? I thought they would be standalone programs.. Little confused.

The editors are Torque "applets" that, by default, are loaded along with your game. That way you have access to the editors while testing. You are required by the EULA to remove the editors (and any .cs files other than your own) from the game before you release/distribute it.
