Had a go at getting part of the ZXodus][Engine to run as part of a script in ZX BASIC (the scripting language used by the engine). Against all expectations it worked first time. I’ve added the latest development version of ZX BASIC to the RedBox SDK. RedBox is a WINE wrapper for the set of tools that are used to create assets and compile binaries for the ZXodus][Engine. Currently it’s Mac only until I find a way to build a Linux version. WINE doesn’t run on Windows, so there you have to install the tools separately. I’m now working on the next version of the character generator. When that’s done I’ll be able to re-use a fair amount of the code on the script engine.
[Edit] Well Apple has changed the underlying OS again and broken RedBox. Development is now moving to Windows.
