Is it time to deprecate mplay?

NPT thinks so. He has decent arguments: it uses a deprecated part of the DirectX API — and not even the newest version of it.

Read his full post. He also suggests YYG to make 39DLL an official extension. What do you think? (essential request for comments: check.)

    @The topic of this post: Yes. NPT is right. Deprecate Mplay, buy 39DLL. Brilliant idea. If NPT had a position at YYG, maybe it would work better :).

  • I never really got to into making Online games, i did make a simple chat system for my friends at school, but it wasn’t that good really.
    Yes, I do agree with 39DLL being good, maybe Yoyo Games should buy it, but i doubt that they would go to the trouble of it.
    And yes, 39DLL, is quite hard to use, compared to Mplay.
    I think that maybe they should re-write a few things in GM, D3D needs to be made faster, thats for sure.
    But Yoyo could just make there own 39DLL styled feature that could replace Mplay.

    There is a lot of things that should be re-written in GM though, but the question is, will Yoyo ever do it?

  • ok, one word sweet, i like it it’s just what i have always wanted and suggested i can imagine playing the first game of pacman in augumented reality so that is what i meant when i was asking for 5d graphics, wow sweet.
