(Note: The default download now links to the installer that does
not include VB runtime files. If you run an old version of
Windows, you might need to go to the complete
listing and get the full installer.)
- All downloads and versions are available
GameDev Project Files on SourceForge.
- You can also get the full 1.4.6 installation at
(recommended if you want the installer without VB runtime files, but
the main download link above is too slow or currently inaccessible).
The install packager is part of the main GameDev distribution.
It will assist you in creating an NSI file that can
be used with the Nullsoft
Scriptable Install System to create a stand-alone install package
containing all the files necessary to install and run a GameDev game
on another machine. Note that the install packager has been designed
for NSIS version 2.0 and it may not work with newer versions. I think
it works with 2.0.6, but have heard reports that it doesn't work with
some versions unless you alter the generated script (I suspect this
was 2.0.7 where the problem was introduced, but haven't verified).
Graphics for use with the Scrolling Game Development Kit come in many
forms. There is a main graphics library, extensions and additional
releases for the library, and other third party libraries. The main
graphics library includes a collection of graphics designed
specifically for the Scrolling Game Development Kit. They have been
collected from myself and others who wished to contribute to the
library. Any additions to the library are being released in their
own packages so you can selectively choose what kind of graphics
to download. And graphics libraries with their own web sites will
be linked appropriately so you can read more about them and see
current update information before downloading.

Orionpax offers this clean and self-contained set of graphics to extend
GPL Ari Feldman generously provides his famous graphics library
now available under the terms of an Open Source license
(as of 11/8/2004).
You may have to fiddle around with
these graphics to use them in your game since this is a general
graphics library not designed specifically for this kit.
SpriteLib has been updated and
includes some new graphics oriented around platform games, as well as
many other updates.
- Basic3D (15 KB) SmartBoy16 provides
this sample project with graphics and maps demonstrating an isometric
view where the tiles on the map appear to be 3D blocks with some depth.
