Milestone 3 has been released. It now includes support for loading XML game files. Please post comments on successess or failures or questions about the file format.

Game Loading

Last night I proved the expat is going to work for me by getting game object models loading. Still missing a few pieces, like loading of actions and connections from the .xml file.

wxMozilla / MinGW SDK

Prayer Request

My brother had a son recently, Mateo, who was born 3 months early, at 2 pounds. The little guy is having a hard time, he still has a lot of growing to do. Thank you to anyone who is willing to pray for him. God Bless.


Well, I needed to spend some time working on the Biblestudy application. It’s been a real pain, several problems with wxMozilla, Mozilla, wxWindows, Sword and ReadingPlanner, but I got it all worked out. I have a windows build that works except for some annoying debugging messages from Mozilla.
