  1. Steam made some big changes not long ago.  Is there a new SDK that needs to be incorporated into Leadwerks?

      Maybe you're on beta or have it turned off on launch?  https://store.steampowered.com/news/42269/

      I don't think any of that will affect us.

      I just downloaded the Steam SDK by itself and it hasn't been updated since January.  Looks like the one incorporated into Leadwerks is from one month earlier so I think we're ok.

    Next Steps

    I have a random question: will Turbo continue to incorporate libraries/tools Leadwerks has now? I'm thinking specifically Steam SDK but also libcurl, GameAnalytics and anything else currently in Leadwerks. Is there anything that might be cut?

    Understood. Thank you Josh.

    Does this mean you're back in the U.S.? Any ETA on these issues:

    Loading from the encrypted data file

    I just realized that maybe you misread what I wrote. I meant your Leadwerks StReam write commands. In other words, if you can open a zipped file to read, can you open a zipped file to write to, for example with stream->WriteInt(2)?

    Errors Visual Studioi 2017 LE 4.6

    Yeah, this comes up regularly because the Leadwerks blank c++ template is broken. Reading through this should get you going: https://www.leadwerks.com/community/topic/17019-more-on-vs-2017/

    Loading from the encrypted data file

    Users can turn off cloud syncing both by individual game settings and global Steam settings so I don't think that's a reliable way to store information. I have no problem with creating my own file on the local drive but was just curious about the possible additional option.

    Loading from the encrypted data file

    Nice! Bonus question: do the Stream write commands work? In other words, could we write a save file or configuration settings to our own encrypted zip? It sounds like we could.

    Loading from the encrypted data file

    I believe Josh said in the past that the password is not available to anyone. You can, however, zip your own files, with your own password and still use Leadwerks Loads on those (C code is available on the forums). I don't know if fopen_s() or Leadwerks's ReadFile work on those.

    FBX Imports Without Material Applied

    I imported the FBX into Max. It's a light, camera and cube but while the cube has a material assigned, it has no texture. It looks like your export didn't include it.

    Leadwerks 5 and youtube

    Josh's blog has the most information about Turbo: https://www.leadwerks.com/community/blogs/blog/1-joshs-dev-blog/ Not sure about PBR. You can get a metallic look using the method described here: https://www.leadwerks.com/community/topic/17466-metallic-shader/?tab=comments#comment-113487

    do we have a gui tutorial somewhere?

    GorzenDev did a series on his blog, starting with this one: https://www.leadwerks.com/community/blogs/entry/2062-basic-gui-creation/

  15. 4.6 beta (never made official) was released almost half a year ago. I know Turbo is a focus but any chance of getting back to this too?

      Appreciate the update.  It's not my business and you're welcome to vacation of course but since I work with Leadwerks literally every week, it's good to know it's not abandoned for too long.

      If it was vacation I would not have a computer at all! :D

      Vacation without a computer doesn't sound like vacation!
