I’ve been thinking and I don’t want this place to die. No one ever comes here anymore and makes a game with eclipse, they go to ascesiondev or other websites. I can give suggestions for getting this place back on it’s track.
**Eclipse has a lot of engines but all are dropped by their owners. The only Eclipse engine that is being updated to this day is Eclipse Renewal but a lot of people might not use it since it dosen’t have all the features that people new here would want. Don’t get me wrong, I love ER and the devs creating it and have a lot of respect for it but people don’t really want something clean but something with a lot of features. To fix this I’m deciding to release my modified engine. It has a lot of features that people would love and would use it but if they want to go for a clean version with unique features, I prefer you go with ER. I’m planning on making that engine all community based and I will also try to add features. I’m still learning **:P
Zynato will make a new slider and I’m hoping this will make users easier to download an engine and if they have an active project, they can release it for others to see. Also add a tutorial section beside the slider. To get people in this site look below
~Getting more users
Now this is from personal experience but finding an engine is really hard especially there’s a lot of custom versions with different features. Keep in mind that mostly new users are new to vb6 and may not know how to code in a feature (like me when I first registered) People usually don’t help which makes users quit eclipse, so helping would be nice, not saying you should do everything for them but just helping them would be nice. A lot of people also can’t pay if someone is willing to add features for them so that is why I suggest the community engine type of thing. Encouraging people is also nice for making them continue developing with eclipse. Also remind new people that asking for help is okay lol. Some new users think that we are like the “old” people.
