Heyo everyone. I decided to scrap the idea of using templates and making a more D like language plugin for DarkGDK and just retro-fitted the cpp one and its worked out very well (be done in a day or two RL permitting) attached is the current example program (spinning cube) in D.

There is a problem though. When you close the window the cube starts spinning uncontrollably and doesn't close. I am not too sure why this happens but then again i don't understand a lot of the thread locking components of simpleWindow and thus they are lacking in my own version as i don't know how to implement them in D.

The attached has a .bat file to build it with dmd2 all you need is your gdkengine.dll along side it and go... until you try and close it.

If anyone can look over the simplewindow.d file and see why this is happening or how to fix it i would greatly appreciate the help!

Also this is not exactly how the end product will look using DarkGDK dlang its just a test build that happens to be going rather well. Thanks for you time.

Depending on how to implemented the simpleWindow functions, this problem may go away for you in RC5. There used to be an underlying thread which DarkGDK had to sync with but has been removed in the next version. It's possible that this is causing the problem you're experiencing.

that is quite likely as i have not set up any of the threading stuff that simpleWindow.cpp uses.

Is there an estimated release date for RC5? I still have a bunch of polishing to do as well as making documentation for setup and such and it seems to work fine until you close the window so its fine enough for testing at the moment.
