Hi,
i notice the command(s) used here

https://www.appgamekit.com/documentation/Reference/3D/ObjectSphereSlide.htm
CreateLightDirectional(1,-1,-1,0.5,255,0,0)

and here

https://www.appgamekit.com/documentation/Reference/3D/SetObjectLightMode.htm
CreateLightDirectional(1,-1,-1,0.5,255,0,0)
CreateLightPoint(1,0,50,0,800,0,255,0)

give "unrecognized command" though it says usable for agk v1 and v2 in the tutorial

im using agk on linux , i cant seem to find a version number in te IDE or a command that prints it

anyone ?

I think those commands have been retired.
Now they use the CreatePointLight() and the "PointLight" group of commands

The Directional light is now the Sun. Use the command SetSunDirection. in the Lights section of the 3D commands group.
