    Forgive me if I just don’t see it, but is there an easy accessible site/document for Errata? Thanks!

    Is Multiplayer Gaming and Engine Coding for the Torque Game Engine known to work under OSX 10.7 (Lion) using the latest xcode? I know they changed a lot of stuff with the latest xcode and was wondering if it is known to work or not (Compile and run as expected), since I prefer developing from within OSX.

    Sorry, but I never did accumulate any errata for MGEC like I did for GPGT.

    Hi. I haven’t tried compiling under Lion so I can’t give you a good answer. I only have machines with OS X versions up to 10.6. Also, I’m mostly a Windows guy so I won’t be able to check this any time soon. That said, you might try asking on the GarageGames forums. Someone out there is probably still using TGE and has also updated their Mac to Lion. If you ever get a handle on this, I’d love to know if it went smoothly.

    Can I still learn the Torque script using these books or are they too out of date with the latest torque 3d engine?

  • edo October 18, 2012, 3:12 am

    Yes. You can learn Torque Script (TS) from these books, but there will be a few new features (in Torque 3D) not covered. Note: TS is 90+% the same from TGE to T3D.
