Tried to use DarkGDK from this thread:
The help file says I need gdkengine.dll, the documentation doesn't explain how to build one, and it is not supplied with the installation. The applicationdata folder also doesn't contain any dlls, only some src files.
Then found 3 bat-scripts in the folder.

Tried to launch them, the message was:

I'm using the license specified in the thread:

What am I doing wrong, please advise how to fix the error.

And what scripts should I run, what is the difference between them?
compile engine with plugins.bat
compile engine.bat
compile headers.bat

Thanks anyone who can answer.

That's DarkGDK 2.0, which is different from DarkGDK. DarkGDK 2.0 is a spin-off created by Mistrel. He spun it off from a very early version of DarkGDK (before the open-source versions). Perhaps you can PM him if he's still around.

I'm not familiar with 2.0, but I am familiar with the regular DarkGDK, and there is no gdkengine.dll to mess with there.

For DarkGDK:

The latest unofficial open-source release (r114 - 11-21-2017) from s_i that works with Visual Studio 2017 is here:

The semi-latest unofficial open-source release (r114 - 11-20-2014) from WickedX, is here:

The latest official open-source release (r113) from The Tall Man (that's me) is here:
Judging what we see is the greatest blinder and self-limiter in the universe.

What we perceive is never reality. It is only a story we tell ourselves based on our current perspective, which has far more to do with our beliefs about ourselves than with anything else.
