What is FPSC Dev Kit?
FPSC Dev Kit is a Dark Basic Pro distribution specifically for compiling the FPS Creator source code and building executables which can be used to modify the game engine.
This distribution only uses products, source code and DLL's in the public domain or under public license.

FPSC Dev Kit Features:
Uses latest Dark Basic Pro v7.7
Uses latest Synergy IDE editor
Fully supports FPSC v117, v118, v119, v120
Includes source code for supported versions
Includes official updates for supported versions
Includes Directx9.0c installer (required for FPSC)
Includes 4GB patcher for FPSC executables (large address aware)
Includes XBOX controller driver for joypad support
Optimised for smaller / faster executables

FPSC Editor Project (requires Visual Studio)
Compatibility with DBPro 9EX

FPSC Dev Kit Requirements:
You will need the full version of FPS Creator software which can be downloaded here:
http://fstore.thegamecreators.com/FPSCreatorClassic/FPSCreatorClassic-00V1121132404bc0.exe
Use serial key 00V1121132404bc0 to activate FPS Creator.

FPSC Dev Kit Instructions:
- Simply follow the installer instructions. Please note the package has been configured to work in the default installation path so I don't recommend changing this.
- When prompted please allow the new directory to be created in (C:\Program Files\The Game Creators) or (C:\Program Files (x86)\The Game Creators) if using 64bit Windows.
- Once installed a desktop shortcut will be created. Open the IDE and browse to the project folder, select the version of FPSC you want to modify, make your changes and select compile (not compile and run).
- You will need to compile both the FPSC-Game and FPSC-Map Editor executables and replace with the official ones. The modified executables will appear in your project folder once compiled.
- After installing FPS Creator you need to update to the version you are modding e.g. if modding v117 you need to install the official v117 update for FPS Creator (see utilities folder)

Following the decision from TGC to make the source code for GameGuru available recently, I thought it was a good time to ensure FPSC can continue in the same fashion.

I had a lot of issues trying to get the Github package to work so decided it best to do this myself. I've fully tested FPSC Dev Kit v1.0 with the source code included for v117, v118, v119 and v120 so its a great place to start with something that works out of the box or to create that super mod you've been thinking about. It also opens up the doors for things like another community driven mod which others can contribute to and improve.

I hope this helps out anyone who was hoping to modify the source code but had similar issues or didn't know where to start.

This is really cool of you to do. Maybe post this in the DBO boards for those guys to look at.

Nomad Soul Thank you so much for putting this together
Will definitely give this a try.
My games never have bugs. They just develop random features..
Lots and lots of random features...

Can we get a mod to sticky this thread. I would hate for this to get buried.

Really damn cool!
I'm shocked no one did this before.
If something compiles on the first try. Something is terribly wrong.

Thanks everyone. This is one of those things I had wanted myself but the stars aligned and found I was in the best position to make it!

@Mriganka - I've not spoken to s4real for a while now. He was really busy then went off the grid (well the FPSC grid anyway!).
To be honest Black Ice probably isn't the best place to start as it uses additional DLL's and commands which require a deeper knowledge of DBPro.
The FPSC development kit is designed to give everyone a starting point to modify FPSC out of the box with everything working.
You can extend this by adding plugins etc but I would only recommend doing so for advanced users or those familiar with plugins and how they work.

Nice work on this nomad soul this should help a lot of people out.



@Mriganka - The source to black ice mod is pretty hard to set up plus there is code from other coders that we would have to get permission from before we could make this open source.
