More awesome stuff.
I wonder if Maker3D is worth adding to the list.

As long as there is redistributable stuff, why not?

Hello Paolo,
You could separate from the Docky,
the search menu?
the search menu taken to the left and leave it fixed,
and leave only the Docky for applications,
a greeting.

@the_reaper
Sorry if I didn't understand correctly.
Do you mean I should remove HFinder (magnifying lens icon) from AmiStart's main dock, and move it into the "Icaros" menu at the left corner of it?
Something like this one?

No Paolo,
Aros eye icon,
moved to the left as in Windows to look for things,
the fixed bin and that deleted files can be recovered,
a greeting.

For two reasonable reasons: 1) you can set AmiStart to the far left of the screen on your own, or just open Prefs/Icaros Settings and select the full dock behavior for it; 2) everyone else does the same thing and I prefer Icaros to be somehow different on this matter. Then there is the 3) because I am the maintainer and I prefer this way. ;-)

Nothing new on the drivers side, although you should be able to use some new resolutions with the VMware SVGA driver.

Net-Bubble gives me error,

so I try the new resolutions,
A greeting.

http://gerigeri.uw.hu/maker3d.html

Hi, Maker3D never worked very well on AROS, i only made a few rest-releases. Development of Maker3D is discontinued since years due to technical issues, and large changes in the rpg community / changes in the amatheur game developement habits. Due to combinations of various factors, the development will not be resumed.

However, Maker3D is replaced by a new game engine, called Maker4D.
Maker4D uses a totally different conception.
It is available here: http://maker4d.uw.hu/index.html
This is a free engine. It does not have an editor as it automatically generates the game from files inserted into directories. It also automatically creates the playable heros and npc-s from 2d graphics art.
This new engine is not yet ported to Aros, but adding Aros is on my todo list.
Soon as i do the Aros port, i will annouce that engine properly on this forum.

I cant really specify any date to do so tho, i must re-learn how windowing and input handling works in aros to do a port. The 3d engine itself is crossplatform (it uses software rendering), but i have to my platform library one by one to every platform. Alternatively, i could use SDL, and i will probably do that instead.
